An early experiment with Quantussy Cells to create purely generative music. There are 3 cells in this patch, which requires 6 Sample and Holds. I have a long way to go to tame this sort of structure, but it’s a promising line of research. It’s the first time I’ve really felt the need for some stackable cables, as it takes a lot of patching, and tapping of outputs at various points.

A patch which realises the logistic equation: Xn+1 = k*(Xn – Xn2), with k between 3.57 and 4.00. The resulting ‘chaotic’ CV is quantised to a Pentatonic Minor scale and then run through the Intellijel Shifty to create a three-part canon.
The logistic equation is slightly fiddly to patch, and is very sensitive to the value of k, but the resulting output seems to have a more musical quality than a random signal.
It doesn’t turn up in my tracks that often, I’m still exploring analogue too much, but whenever I spend some time with the Make Noise Phonogene, I end up having a lot of fun. Here’s some 70s Miles Davis sliced and diced.
I’m simply in love with The Verbos Complex Oscillator. Surely the most beautiful sounding VCO in all of Eurorack… and probably the best looking too. Why on earth did I wait so long? Its sound is so far beyond anything else I’ve used, and unlike many other complex VCOs it just seems to be one huge sweet spot; it’s hard to make it sound bad. Gorgeous in every way.
Here is a simple test of Amplitude Modulation, with Timbre, Harmonics, Mod Index, and Mod Osc Frequency all modulated via slow LFOs. Reverb is from a Make Noise Erbeverb
Loving this release from Benge. Created with various items from his outrageous, in fact disgraceful, collection of rare and beautiful synthesisers, it sounds simply lovely.
Some nice modular free jazz by Worwell:
The new album, A Dim Vision Of Something Lovely That Is Forever Just Out Of Reach, has been released by Recycled Plastics.
