Quick Tip: Rhythmic Pattern With A Eurorack Sequential Switch Tutorial

Published on Mar 5, 2019 Perfect Circuit

"This quick tip explains how to make a rhythmic pattern with a eurorack modular sequential switch.

Modules you will need:
- a sequential switch
- a clock (for clocked sequential switches) or an LFO or sequencer (for voltage controlled sequential switches)
- multiple sound sources

The patch:
- sound sources to inputs of sequential switch
- either sequencer to voltage control input of sequential switch
- or clock to clock input of sequential switch
- sequential switch output is your rhythmic pattern.

You can vary your pattern by modulating or manually tweaking the input sounds, or changing the order they are plugged into the switch in. You can leave inputs of the switch with nothing plugged in if you want spaces in your pattern. If you are using a voltage controlled switch like in the video change your sequencer pattern to change your rhythm pattern.

You could even experiment with making melodies this way by patching multiple pitched sound sources into the switch."
