Enjoy these patch examples on ‘Random’ the topic for episode 4 of ‘Modular Podcast’. Check out any patch notes below, fire away with questions and we’d be happy to answer. As always we’re up for feedback, suggestions and user participation with the show so check the links above to get in touch.
The idea behind the patch is to use a Doepfer A-199 spring reverb feedback along with randomly controlled filters, an oscillator and fx drones to create haunting textures.
The Verbos Harmonic Oscillator is the audio source into the Medic Modules Defibrillator then into the A-199 Spring Reverb with the A-189-1 Bit Crusher and the Ladik Harmonic Generator in the feedback loop.
Make noise MATHS is driving the main clock into the 4MS RCD, SCM which in turn clock two LFO’s, the SSL Modulation Orgy and the Erica Synths Black LFO (both set to random digital S&H type waves). The RCD is also clocking the turing machine. The noise out, gates out and seq out of the Turing Machine are all going to a Doepfer A-148 Dual S&H. There are also gates firing into a WMD MME step through mode.
From this a number of cross modulated CV’s are created by patching some of these elements back on themselves and the Piston Honda MK2 in LFO mode free running is added for variance. These CV’s are used to modulate both filters on the Medic Modules Defibrillator along with the VCA, the A-189-1, the Ladik Harmonic Generator and the Verbos Harmonic Oscillator.
On the output there is a an EHX Small Clone Chorus and a Strymon DIG delay.
