Palpitation - Ambient Eurorack Modular Synthesizer

Published on Feb 8, 2020 Human Motives

"This is my second ever recorded patch to learn modular. I am now 5 weeks since I first started. Since the last video, I tried a lot, but was not satisfied with any sounds. Maybe some modular fatigue? Learning a lot, but definitely still struggling to get something I like. Uploading this mainly to look back later so I can appreciate what progress I have made.

When making this patch, I did not plan for it to sound this way. I was trying to use white noise from the Shuttle Control to “erode” some of the envelopes, to get a lo-fi sound. I would have loved the piece to be more uplifting musically, instead of the dark mood, but I could not figure out how. It could also do with more melodic variation, so that’s what I am going to practice.

— The Patch —

Morphagene starts with sound from the patch in the buffer. Marbles triggers the envelopes on Quadra and v/octing Plaits and the Instruo T-sl going into Clouds. I'm using the Intuitive Quantizer to force all notes into a scale. Plaits is doing a bass drone that slowly fades in and out. T-sl is feeding Clouds to make a dirty lo-fi pad sound. Rings is doing a weird tribal percussion thing that is a little out of tune. Mimeophone blends it all together with some smeared delays. I'm using WMD clock multiplier to make the Marbles into slow and fast triggers.

- Chris"
