First time playing around with the “Euclidean ‘Toy’ Firmware” for the ALM Busy Circuits Pamela’s Workout clock module. Full patch notes below.
DRUM mode from Mutable Instruments Braids. Internal envelope sent to internal VCA to just create a low end thump.
Percussion 1 and Percussion 2
Both sounds come through Mutable Instruments Peaks in the custom synth drum mode.
Drums are mixed into the Manhattan Analog SVVCF. The output is taken in high pass mode into a Doepfer A-199 Spring Reverb before going into an RYO Ampmix as the final mixer in the patch.
The bass sound is the Neutron Sound Orgone Accumulator with a blended sine/triangle as the base wave and we’re in FM mode with the internal frequency set and FM index (depth of modulation) controlled by a WMD Multimode envelope. The waveforms are hard synced/reset with the same trigger going to the WMD envelope to a more solid punch/thump/transient at the start of the note.
The main output goes into a second Doepfer A-199 Spring Reverb with the second pulse wave output taken into the A-199 feedback input. This allows you to have a dry input sound and then on the wet sound mix the feedback input to the wet sound as well. Create a reverb effect based on both the feedback in and standard audio in. So 2 channel mixing with the second channel 100% wet with the level set by the feedback knob. This output then goes into a new ‘secret’ module which I’m sending the bass drum to for sidechain compression FX. That then outputs into the RYO Ampmix. This is also split and sent to the Make Noise Echophon with an pitch shifted octave up delay set 100% wet. This is then processed in a Livewire Frequensteiner filter in high pass mode. The Frequensteiner cut off is then modulated by an E355 dual wavetable LFO module. This module also sends an LFO into the WMD envelope decay CV and the release CV receives CV modulation from the Erica Synths Polivoks ADSR in looping mode.
All clocks are handled by Pamela’s Workout in the Euclidean ‘Toy’ firmware. The kick is a simple straight clock and the two percussion parts are euclidean patterns with rotation and some manual adjustment throughout. The trigger for the WMD envelope modulating the FM index of the bass riff is also a pattern from Pamela’s workout. Again, this is manually adjusted. A fourth channel of Pamela’s Workout is set to a basic steady division and send to the Make Noise Brains module controlling the two Pressure Points sending a slow sequence into the RYO Ampmix for attenuation then into the ADDAC 207 Quantizer before going to the Orgone Accumulators pitch input.
