1. MASQUERADE ★ Ambient Eurorack Modular Synthesizer ★ Elements, Rings, Plonk, Lo Fi Junkie
★MASQUERADE★
A patch featuring Mutable Instruments Elements and Rings, Plonk and Rainmaker from Intellijel, with the Zvex Instant Lo Fi Junkie, "Mannequins" by Whimsical Raps Musical instruments Three Sisters and Just Friends, Malekko Voltage Block, and ALM Busy Circuits Pamela's New Workout.

PATCH NOTES:

Elements v/oct from Ch. 1 of Voltage Block gate from Pamela's New Workout.
Rings 1 v/oct from Ch. 2 of Voltage Block
Rings 2 v/oct from Ch. 5 of Voltage Block
Plonk pitch from Ch. 3 and 8 of Voltage Block out to Rainmaker
Just Friends is the low drone via Run parameter from Ch. 4 of Voltage Block out to Three Sisters Instant Lo-Fi Junkie.
Three Sisters' Span parameter is modulated via Ch. 2 of Pamela's New workout sending a slow sine.

Sequencing of Elements, Plonk and Rings by Malekko Voltage Block receiving clock from ALM Busy Circuits Pamela's New Workout.

All selectively sent via aux sends on the Allen & Heath GSR-24M console through Eventide Space reverb and Pitchfactor in Crystals mode. Recorded in Protools 2018.4 on Windows 10.

4. STONES RIVER ★ Ambient Eurorack Modular Synthesizer ★ Elements, Rings, Plonk, Lo Fi Junkie
★STONES RIVER★

A minimal ambient patch inspired by a video I shot of an overflowing local river. The patch features the Mutable Instruments Elements and Rings, the Plonk and Rainmaker from Intellijel, with the Zvex Instant Lo Fi Junkie and Mannequins Three Sisters.

PATCH NOTES:

Elements geometry modulated by sine of A-145 LFO to Ch. 1 of A-138 mixer.

Plonk to Rainmaker to Lo Fi Junkie to Three Sisters Low Pass to Ch. 2 of A-138. Rainmaker pitchshift modulated by triangle of A-145. Cut off of three sisters modulated by sine of A-145.

Rings structure modulated by square of A-146LFO2 to Doepfer A-187 VCDSP for delay and reverb. Goes to Ch. 3 of A-138


Bass comes from Doepfer A-110-1 sine "sequenced" by A-148 Dual Sample and Hold. Sample and Hold getting sample from white noise of A-118 Noise+Random Voltages triggered by square of A-145LFO

Sequencing of Elements, Plonk and Rings by two Doepfer A-155 Analog/Trigger Sequencers controlled by A-154 Sequence Controller. Both sent to A-150 Dual Voltage Controlled Switch to A-182-2 Switched Multiples then Quantized by A-156 Dual Quantizer in minor 7th chord mode.

All sent through Eventide Space reverb in Hall mode. Recorded in Protools.
