3 Modules #15: Maths, Braids, Clouds

Published on Jul 15, 2017 Comparative Irrelevance

"Here are some more pleasant sounds to follow up on the idea I originally had for the previous episode: sending the SUM output from Maths into the internal quantizer on Braids, to create an evolving stepped sequence.

Patch notes:

Braids is in 3 x Sine wave mode, and the internal AD envelope is applied to the VCA, to create separated notes whenever the pitch changes. The quantizer is set to pentatonic minor. Towards the end you'll see that I'm reducing the bit depth and sample rate as well.

Maths' functions (ch. 1 and 4) are cycling slowly, and ch. 3 is patched into the cycle rate of both to serve as a "master tempo control". The sum output is sent to Braids' V/Oct input, which means that the ch. 1 and 4 attenuators set the range of notes, and ch. 2 offsets that range by a set amount.

Additionally Maths' other outputs are used to modulate Braids' timbre and color, and Clouds' position, size, blend (feedback, in this case), texture and freeze.

Clouds is in the standard granular delay mode, providing an ambient "bed of sound", to harmonize with the notes from Braids.

Thanks for watching!"
