Zlob Modular Diode Chaos modulation source (LMEE)

Learning Modular

"This simple, small, inexpensive module is a source of three smoothly varying semi-random control voltages plus a random trigger. This video gives an overview of its behavior.

The short version is:

• Higher Rate settings produce more Triggers over the same period of time, with a sudden increase to audio rate triggers at the clockwise extreme of the Rate control.
• The X output is the most active, providing a set of peaks like a “pinged” resonant filter at higher “Rate” settings. A train of these peaks starts with each Trigger output.
• The Y output is like a heavily slewed version of the X output, and is somewhat out of phase.
• The Z output acts like a bit like a slow attack/decay function generator, triggered by each Trigger output.
• As a result of the above, “Rate” works more like a “complexity” control, than the normal speed of an LFO.

This video, plus a second one showing how to use it as the main driver in a generative patch, are part of the Learning Modular Eurorack Expansion: Extended Edition course:

Those two videos, plus a third on how to tame the changing voltage ranges of the Diode Chaos and additional text explanations, were shared with the +5v and above Learning Modular subscribers on Patreon:"
