Full patch notes below. Had loads of fun with playing the quantizer “post sequence” for some interesting melodic patterns.

Basis of the patch
Elements in the sound source with processing through Clouds. Modulation from the SSF URA (Ultra Random Analog) and manually wiggling of the ADDAC 207 Quantizer keyboard.
Gate rhythm coming from Pamela’s Workout from ALM Busy Circuits. This is also clocking a pair of Make Noise Pressure Points with the additional Brains module for sequencing.
The pitch comes from a single row of the Pressure Points and is attenuated in an RYO Ampmix before going to my ADDAC 207 Quantizer which is then “played” live with the keyboard layout buttons. You can see my playing this at the bottom of the screen.
I’m taking a single Elements output into Clouds left input for processing in the main Granular processing mode (they are 3 other processing modes, see my videos on this channel!). I manually move the blend settings (dry / wet, random grain panning, feedback and reverb) on Clouds throughout.
Modulation of Clouds comes from the SSF URA. With the first sample and hold output going into the playback position of the live audio buffer on Clouds (first cable I plug in). The second sample and hold then goes to grain size. I then use the random pulse output from the URA to freeze the audio buffer on Clouds at random intervals.
I play around with various settings on Elements throughout and the points where it really opens up for a big ambient reverb is freezing Clouds audio buffer then taking out the random pulse for freezing (as I don’t want it to turn off) and then taking the 1v/oct quantised sequence from Elements into Clouds to play that audio buffer. This moves back to how it was (random pulses freezing on and off, sequence back to Elements and back again a second time).
I stop the clock source (Pamela’s Workout) at the end and you can hear the feedback build up in the audio buffer on Clouds.
Any questions just fire away!
