Polyend Seq and Poly - Pop Music feat. Mutable Instruments Edges and Anushri

Published on Sep 13, 2017 isvisible / isinvisible

"I've had the Polyend Seq sequencer for a few weeks now, but not really had much of a chance to try it out, so this is my first simple effort... and it ended up spitting out pop music!

The melody and chords are going via the Poly midi to cv module to the Mutable Instruments Edges module and the bassline via Poly to the Anushri module.

The only other accompaniment is percussive, from the Touched by Sound DRM1 sequenced by Seq and the Wurlitzer Swingin' Rhythm (modified with trigger in's) sequenced by the Iron Ether Pithoprakta.

There's lots of other stuff patched up, but that's all for another track I'm working on."

Iron Ether - Pithoprakta

Published on Feb 11, 2017 DivKidVideo

"Check out a 8 drum module jam with the first patch video [posted here]

The Pithoprakta is a probability based module with 8 gates or trigger outs, a divide mode (still with probability), looping (gate CV for loop on and off and loop length control and CV), CV generating beast!"

Iron Ether - Pithoprakta *FIRST PATCH*

Published on Feb 6, 2017 DivKidVideo

"Here's the first patch jam style video with the Pithoprakta from Iron Ether. It's trigger 8 drum sounds with the probability based random gates. The CV out is controlling a basic bass voice layered over the drums. Full video coming very soon! :)"

Serge - Ian Fritz 'Chaos Theory' & 'Timbre Tantrum' Panels

Published on Jun 22, 2016 isvisible / isinvisible

"Still exploring and finding out how to use my Ian Fritz panels.
Loads of fun. Especially with the Bugbrand DRM1+X drum synth.

All sounds (apart from the Drums, which are heard on their own at the beginning) created by the Serge panels. With just some delay and reverb added to a couple of the voices.

None Serge modules used:
Mutable Instruments - Grids
Iron Ether - Pithoprakta
Doepfer - A-160-5 Ratchet Control
Electro Music - Klee
Modcan - Dual Delay
Intellijel - Springray"

Published on Feb 16, 2016 isvisible / isinvisible

"Working on a new track featuring:

Iron Ether - Pithoprakta on trigger duties
Neutron Sound - Orgone Accumulator on percussion and bassline duties
Folktek - Matter on percussion duties
Livewire - Audio Frequency Generator on plinky plonky duties
Mutable Instruments - Elements on thrummy guitar type thing duties

With some other gubbins.

Folktek 'Matter' - Iron Ether 'Pithoprakta' - Neutron 'Orgone Accumulator'

Published on Jan 30, 2016 isvisible / isinvisible

"This is my first quick patch with the amazing Folktek 'Matter'.
It's on percussion and bassline duties by itself, then followed by the Neutron Sound 'Orgone Accumulator' in percussion mode.

All controlled by:
Iron Ether 'Pithoprakta', ALM 'Pamela's Workout', a couple of sequencers (Doepfer and KLEE) and some envelopes and LFO's. (module coming soon)"

Pithoprakta - Orgone Accumulator - Cyclebox - Elements

Published on Jan 8, 2016 simon

"Just playing around with the wonderful Iron Ether 'Pithoprakta' again.

It's triggering the Neutron Sound 'Orgone Accumulator' in percussive mode which is creating the bass drum and snare/rim sound.
It's retriggering the Doepfer A-147-2.
It's sync-ing the Cylonix 'Cyclebox' along with providing it with cv to the v/otc input.
It's triggering the gate and strength inputs on the Mutable Instruments 'Elements' and also triggering the grains in 'Clouds'

Altogether I think it sounds a bit like The Cure."

It does! Early Cure meets The Smashing Pumpkins.

Iron Ether Pithoprakta - Cylonix Cyclebox & MI Elements

Published on Jan 3, 2016 simon

"I found a really nice little loop on the Iron Ether Pithoprakta which was triggering the Cylonix Cyclebox in Percussive mode, along with the Gate input and Strength on the Mutable Instruments Elements.
The Pithoprakta is also providing CV for the Cyclebox."

Iron Ether - Pithoprakta - Trigger / Gate Sequencer

Published on Dec 29, 2015 simon

"Here's an overview of the soon to be released Pithoprakta by Iron Ether, the renowned purveyor of stunning effects pedals.
This is Iron Ether's first foray into making Eurorack modules... and it's a belter.
Please note, this video features the pre-production panel, it will look different to the finished article.

I kept everything pretty simple throughout so that it's easy to tell what's going on, and for the main part I just used it to trigger the drums of my old Syncussion DRM-1.

0:00 - Triggering drums.
2:48 - Triggering drums, with CV control over Probability.
3:06 - Triggering drums, with CV control over Probability, and CV control over Looping.
4:10 - Triggering envelopes for Akemie's Castle, and CV out to Akemie's Castle.
4:58 - CV out to oscillator.
5:45 - CV out to oscillator, and triggering drums.
6:57 - Gates mixed, quantised and sent to Oscillator.
7:54 - Gates mixed, quantised and sent to Oscillator, and CV out to filter cutoff.
9:00 - Clocked at audio rate with 8 outputs sent to a 8 way switch.
11:30 - END"

"Pithoprakta is a probabilistic gate/trigger sequencer, able to create 8 channels of gates or triggers whose probability/density can be defined by the panel controls and/or CVs. The looping function will loop up to 64 steps, the loop length being CV-controllable in powers of 2, and an external gate signal can be used to enter/exit looping seamlessly.

The Probabilities of Channel 1 and 8 are defined directly by the panels controls/respective CV inputs. The other 6 channels' probability levels are interpolated from these two values, so if channel 1 is at 10% and channel 8 is at 80%, channel 2 is 20%, channel 3 is 30%, etc. The thinking behind this is that it allows you to have 8 channels with different probability, or the same if you choose, which can be controlled by just two modulators, rather than requiring a separate modulator for each channel - good for smaller systems or if you just don't want to tie up a ton of modulation sources just to control this one module.

Div mode clocks the 8 outputs, each with a different division of the input clock - divide-by-two down to divide-by-sixteen. The upper 4 channel outputs are "on beats" and the lower 4 channels are "off beats," allowing the user to easily create drummer-like rhythms which evolve over time or improvise infinitely.

Once loop mode is active, the Probability controls become "probability of change," in other words they control the likelihood that a given step of the loop will be overwritten, rather than whether that step is on or off. To keep from deleting the loop as soon as one enters looping mode, the probability controls are ignored when entering loop mode until the user turns them down to 0% and back up.

Ideas for usage
Create rhythms that sound like an improvising human drummer, without resorting to preset sequences. Beats can evolve over time in a way you control.
