Had some fun with this one creating the house/techno chord stabs and sidechained bass set to some simple drums. Full and detailed patch notes below.
PATCH NOTES –
Kick and snare from Mutable Instruments Peaks mixed into Mutable Instruments Frames working as a basic mixer. Hi Hat is the white noise output from a Frequency Central System X Sample & Hold Noise module going into the Intellijel uVCA II with an envelope from the Erica Synths Polivoks EG.
Mutable Instruments Tides with shape modulation from the System X Sample and Hold and smoothness modulation from the SSF URA Sample & Hold B output.
This is the WTx4 chord mode on Mutable Instruments – Braids. Chord types are changing with an RYO VC Sequencer and the System X S&H modulates the wavetable Timbre.
Is done with 1 RYO VC Sequencer controlling pitch attenuated by an RYO Vertmix before going into an ADDAC 207 Quantizer. This goes to both Braids to change the root of the chords and also the bass from Tides. The second RYO VC Sequencer as mentioned above modulates the chord types. All clocks for modulation and sequencing comes from the ALM Busy Circuits Pamela’s Workout. The rhythmic trigger for Braids internal envelopes modulating the internal VCA is also from Pamela’s Workout in euclidean mode.
MIXING & PROCESSING
Frames mixes the 3 drums and chords and then goes into Streams in compressor mode for some gentle glueing. The bass goes into Streams and as sidechained in the bonus compressor mode against the kick. Frames output goes into one channel on the Erica Synths Fusion Series Tube Mixer. The bass comes into channel 2 and the Braids chords sound is split with a stackable and taken into a Doepfer A-199 Spring Reverb which is then brought into the third channel of the Tube Mixer before going to my soundcard.
