Ambient Generative Modular

By ENC_ on October 20, 2018 6:25 am

This was modular patch I programmed. I have been working a lot with my modular synth this week and the focus of this particular patch was on making something atmospheric and generative with some planned randomization. It was largely just learning my modular system and exploring possibilities. 

Through the use a randomized CV value I let the synth decide to play a pre programmed note from a sequence I made or not. This randomization triggers 2 voices. The main voice comes from the Moog Mother 32. The second voice comes from a Mutable isntruments Braids and plays only on a inverted CV signal to amplitude. Then it is further randomized with 2 other LFO controlling a second VCA. The LFOs freely open and close the second VCA making the second voice much less likely to sound then the first. All of this is ran down through my delay pedal and added reverb in ableton.

The third and final voice is a auto panned Roland Juno VST freely sequenced by a keystep pro that is unsynced to the main modular sounds. the result is a melodic higher texture to that floats around freely to that fills out the upper frequency range.

The original recording is 25 min long but I cut it down so that the site would let me upload it with out further reducing audio quality.

Gear used:
Moog Mother 32 (main synth)
Braids SE (second osc generating metalic tones)
DSI DM01 (filtering braids/VCA)
2 hp Avert
Roland 540
Erica Synths Black VCA
Strymon El Capistan
Arturia Keystep
