029//Every Weary Step - 2x Moog Mother 32 self-generating track (Eventide Space, Timefactor)

Published on Jun 30, 2018 Alastair Wilson

"A melodic semi-self-generating patch using 2 Mother 32s sent through an Eventide Space modechoverb reverb and an Eventide Timefactor on banddelay setting.

This patch came about when I was playing more with delays, using them as an integral part of the patch. The patch itself is not very complex, and I ended up adding another M32 for a cinematic bass line. I got the name from the melodic line - the delays work so that every new sequence step gets added onto the end of the delay 'melody', like taking another step forwards.

The higher M32 is the main pluck sound, and is running a simple sequence. Its mix between the VCO and white noise is modulated by a slow triangle LFO, and the filter cutoff and resonance are both modulated randomly (using both M32's Assign outputs set to 'random stepped voltage'). The lower M32 (the bass) is constantly on, and its envelope isn't used. It is being clocked randomly, so that the note changes on random steps of the melody. The filter resonance is quite high, and is modulated by a triangle LFO to push it towards self-oscillation; the filter cutoff is tuned so that the note adds some harmony. There is a mono delay from the Timefactor which has a delay time slightly quicker than the tempo - this gives the effect of the 'run up' towards the next melody note, which is the backbone of the whole patch. This delay has some bandpass filtering with the cutoff modulated by a slow internal LFO. The reverb from Space adds stereo width and texture.
