Stziopa x Bastl: Kompas

Published on Sep 26, 2019 Bastl Instruments

"Kompas is a three-coordinate probabilistic pattern navigator. Each coordinate has a unique travelling pace and a dedicated trigger output. The amount of probability can be adjusted manually or by external voltages. Once a coordinate has been adjusted, a new pattern is generated and looped until the next change of direction.

this tool is the outcome of the environment we are in
and is inspired by non-linear approach to music and life – don't build any expectations, choose your direction and discover new paths

Unlike common probability operation, instead of filtering a pre-determined sequence, Kompas uses probability to generate new looping patterns based on the direction you choose.

global clock and reset input
3 x 32 step pattern generators with travelling algorithms
3 CV inputs for coordinate modulation
3 trigger outputs
2/5/10ms selectable trigger length (via boot settings)
DIY and hacker friendly Arduino programmable hardware
open-source schematics and code
includes a printed fanzine with navigation topics
available also as a DIY soldering and coding workshop"

Kompas wes first introduced in May for SUPERBOOTH 2019.
