let it breathe

The title is excellent advice an old friend gave me long ago on appreciating poetry. It's been on my mind lately.

Mono, no reverb.

I really like this study with a minimalistic setup. Can you tell me what machine you have been using?

Thank you very much!

It's all eurorack, but the patch wasn't too complex. The "hi hat" is the clock (square) from Sampling Modulator, the lead is ST0, and the kick was the Bong0 tuned low. The first 2 are going into the HI (high pass) and CENTER (band pass) of the 3 Sisters filter.

The kind of jerky, robotic quality comes from a Crow script I wrote that's basically a small bank of sample and holds that rotate sampling every 200 ms between 2 inputs (a melody voltage and another) and 4 outputs, which included the ST0 and 3 Sisters' V/Oct inputs. Since the ST0 and Sisters follow the same tuning but not at the same time, they fall into and out of sync, and sometimes even skip notes, accentuating different harmonics and creating pseudo melodies. Also I used both Maths functions for "reverse bouncing ball" envelopes on the hi hat, using the same trigger as the Bong0. I think the Bong0 had a delay on its trigger as well.

I hope that wasn't way too much detail smile TL;DR - HPFed square for hat, BPF'd pulse-ish thing for lead, bongo tuned down for kick, and herky jerky stepped oscillator and filter control.

Oh my Lord!!! This is a lot of information. Modular music is something I never got in touch with. But, I am sure, it is lot of fun. Thank you very much for all the details. I am looking forward to your next patches.

I like how the sound morphs in that unexpected way. Brill

Interesting details above. Good sounds you got there. Yeah, letting breathe is good advice indeed. Cool that advice for one craft, poetry can apply to music.

Lol, yeah, I'm working on going overboard with my explanations but I sure stumble sometimes. I find that with lots of stuff, lots of commonality between cooking, code, writing, etc. Probably damn near everything.
