Modular + Pedals


Published on Jan 8, 2018 Modular + Pedals

Playlist:

1. Modular + Pedals #1: Rings - Boss DM-2w
Self-playing ambient patch. Patch notes below.

Boss DM-2w connected and modulated via ALM Busy Circuits S.B.G Stompbox Gateway.

Patch notes:

ALM Busy Circuits Pamela's New Workout is supplying pitch CV, modulation, and triggers for the whole patch.

Channel 1 and 2 are running two different euclidean patterns of attenuated and offset random CV, those are joined by the precision adder on Mutable Instruments Links and then sent to the Intellijel uScale II, and then to Rings.

Channels 3, 4, 7 and 8 are sending LFO to brightness, frequency, damping and position on Rings.

Channel 6 is sending triggers to the trigger in on Clouds.

Channel 5 is sending a heavily attenuated random CV to the EXP input on the S.B.G, which is then converted to expression pedal, and sent to the expression pedal input on the Boss DM-2w.

All channels on Pam's are making heavy use of the random step skipping.

Mutable Instruments Rings is in sympathetic strings mode with 4 note polyphony. The odd output is patched into the input of the S.B.G, out to the Boss DM-2w and back again, and from there to the Clouds.

Boss DM-2w is in the custom mode, with medium feedback.

Mutable Instruments Clouds is the last step in the patch, adding some extra ambience and some stereo movement.
2. Modular + Pedals #2: 0-Coast - Rings - TC Electronic Flashback Triple Delay
Patch notes:

ALM Busy Circuits Pamela's New Workout is supplying pitch CV and triggers.

Channel 1 is sending random triggers to the Disting MK4.

Channel 3 is sending random triggers to the contour on the 0-Coast.

Channel 5 is sending an attenuated and offset random CV to the precision adder on Links.

All channels are making heavy use of the random step skipping.

Expert Sleepers Disting MK4 is in F-5 Shift Register Random CVs algorithm in an open loop, patched into the precision adder on Links.

Intellijel uScale II is receiving CV from the precision adder on Mutable Instruments Links, output A is being multiplied by Links into 1v/oct inputs on Rings and 0-Coast, and to the attenuverter on 0-Coast.

The cycling slope on the Make Noise 0-Coast is modulating the overtone circuit, and patched into the FM input and attenuated for slight pitch modulation, the EOC output triggers the S/H which is patched into the time input on the slope. The pitch CV from the multiple on Links is inverted by the attenuverter, and patched into the decay on the contour, hence creating shorter decays for the higher notes, and longer decays for the lower notes. The contour is patched into the the brightness input on Rings, and the EON out is patched to the strum input. The output of the 0-Coast is patched into the audio input on Rings.

Mutable Instruments Rings is in "Disastrous peace" mode with the reverb engaged. The output is patched into the input of the S.B.G, and then into the TC Electronic Flashback Triple Delay.

The TC Electronic Flashback Triple Delay is being used as a delay based looper. It's in parallel mode with a tube delay on 1, a reverse delay on 2, and a lofi delay on 3. The delay time is close to maximum on each channel, and the feedback is set somewhere between 50% and 65%.
