007//Spaceport [Melodic] - Mother 32 Modular, Eventide Space, Eventide Timefactor

Published on Feb 5, 2018 Alastair Wilson

"A sci-fi, melodic, semi-self-generating modular patch using a small Eurorack setup sent through an Eventide Space modechoverb reverb and an Eventide Timefactor on banddelay setting. No other processing has been applied.

I finally decided to make a patch that wasn't just randomly triggered notes - this is based on a simple looping arpeggio with a bass drone. While playing around with modulation I managed to end up with a loop of 'building up'; the cut-off frequencies, frequency of the synced oscillator, and several other parameters all increase at once before quickly falling. Random stepped voltages from the Mother 32s' Assign outputs make each 'build' unique. I also had bleed from Math's channel 1 LFO through 3 stackcables into the Minimod OSC's v/oct input, which replaced the keyboard output from the arpeggiated Mother 32 - while I ended up liking it in this patch, it's a good reminder to get some proper mixers and multiples, since stackcables aren't perfect!

I decided to call this piece 'Spaceport' because the building and sudden fall made me think of spaceships powering up and then suddenly taking off.
