Like most of us, under the spectre of Covid Lyfe we're having our good weeks, okay weeks and not-so-okay weeks. The latter being characterised by a weird feeling of domestic torpor. Well..for me anyway.

This was one of those torpor weeks, so I made a longer-than-usual Eurorack improv that summed up my current feels of fitful dread.

Curious to here some patch notes on this one, definitely some cool sounds in there.

Thanks. I'll see if I can remember..a week ago seems pretty slippery at the moment!

The woodblock samples are from TipTop samplers triggered by a 4MS clock multiplier. The output from the samplers is run through both channels of a Dual Looping Delay with their Hold and Reverse switches controlled by a bus from the clock multiplier. That's why they sound jittery. I think I was affecting the pitch of the samplers manually, but I could have been using the CV output of an SQ-1 sequencer (can't remember.) The angry sounding oscillators are being run through a Lo pass input of a Doepfer Xtreme filter, whilst the noise is probably going through the hi pass input. I think I must have routed the output of the filter or VCA into the Delay module at some point towards the end, but I'm not sure.

I've really got to start writing these patches down in future. These WB submissions are fairly spontaneous affairs.
