Late night abstract acid modular jam using the MakeNoise rene, brains, and 4 pressure points. Everything clocked to 1 plan-B mini ELF lfo. Trying to make squelchy acid bass lines with the WMD Gamma Wave Source - Dual WaveTable VCO.
Note: the audio was recorded into my ZoomH4n, no computers or drum machines used here.
Maths Channel 4 (called "Channel 2" in the video) set up as fast square-ish LFO (Lin curve, mid Rise, zero Fall, full negative negative output)
Chan 1 patched to Oscillator CV in and Filter cutoff
Chan 4 patched to Chan 1 Both and Filter cutoff
This patch creates a strange-behaving stepped LFO sequence. Sequence length can be varied with Ch 1 Rise/Fall controls. Sequence speed can be varied with Ch4 Rise control.
The upshot of this is that while the up-up-down-down sequence loops, the lower notes in the sequence slowly move up and down, while the higher notes in the sequence follow the same motion, but about 90 degrees out of phase. This creates a disconcerting shepard tones-ish effect.
Make Noise René... Non-Linear Sequencing, a Source of Certainty. Footage taken a few years ago, of a very early prototype for the René. At this point we were not using a micro-controller, but instead many many logic gates!
