Jet-Pack and Transfiguration

By Ryan on March 11, 2020 12:21 pm


I have this module in my Eurorack system called the Teletype. This module is about as nerdy as they come, you program lines of code on this little screen using a keyboard and it does what you ask (most of the time). I really want to dive into this module so I am going to spend the rest of the month writing scripts for it.


This week I have the Teletype talking to another module called Just Friends. Without getting into the nitty gritty, the script basically accepts triggers from my sequencer and allocates a note and a velocity to one of 4 voices in Just Friends that it picks from 1 of 4 different tracker based sequences.  Each sequence represents a scale and I can switch scales using the pads on the Make Noise Rene. Just Friends also gives me a huge range of expressive control over the voices which you will hear.


I had a lot of fun doing this one. See you next week.

nice and atmospheric smile

Sounds like an interesting process.  Cool results, too.  I like the changes from the longer more sustained tones to the shorter more staccato tones and back.  Some of the shorter squawks really do sound kind of chicken-esque.

Wow, there's a lot of really cool melodic stuff happening in this track. Loved the experience with headphones. smile

The chicken death tag gave me a chuckle! It must have been pretty cool to play with all that! I like the ending, coming in like an ominous organ big_smile

Although obviously electronic, some of the sounds have overtones that reminds of acoustic complexity

I'm actually pretty big in the Chicken Death scene and you may have heard of my wax cylinder-only label, BeakCore Cylinders.

I was actually in a band with Johnny Feathers until his tragic feed overdose in 2003.  After that I got into GobbleWave and did mixing/mastering for a lot of the birds coming out of the coop on SoundBird.

That was definitely the most amazing part for me, really gave me some Bach organ feels.  Well done my friend!

wonderfully weird

Some really cool sounds explored here.  It's almost like your modular was speed learning music theory.  "Neeeeed moar input!"

This i have to download!
I am sitting in front of my computer and do some coding... This is the right soundtrack smile
On the other hand i really can  imagine some modern dance performance with this. The end gets some nice deep organ feel for a dramatic finale.
TOP!!!

Simples.  Hehe.  Nice work on the scripting there.

Super effective with the realtime control.  Gives it a heap of flexibility and variety.  Although the JF has that one tone, that nasal quality does work well.
