Liner Notes: 

the third modular experiment in a series from approximately the same "mega-patch."

this is the longest and perhaps my least favorite of the three so far, but i did try to use some synth modules in new ways here...

the main "interesting" thing here is that i build up and end the piece by changing the step length of the melodic sequence from 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 steps before kicking into another gear (and likewise in reverse on the way out). the rhythms for all the voices remain constant, but the notes they play changes; i think it's subtle but kinda cool... this isn't the most pleasing outcome but it makes me want to try to experiment with this further...

\\\\\\\\ patch notes ////////

for fuller explanation of how things are wired up, see:
---> vacillant (
---> vicissitudinous (

modifications this time around:
---> the bass line is controlled by a hihat trigger, whereas the treble/alto use kick/snare triggers
---> i added a 4th percussion voice (basimilus iteratus alter), playing a snarish sound triggered by the pulse output of the turing machine
---> switched up the euclidean sequences to 4 (kick), 6 (snare), 10 (hihat/tambourine sound)
---> reverb pedal set to the "spring" setting

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I like how this came out. I'm familiar with modules but I've never been disciplined enough to fully understand how I can use them (especially since I have so may plug-ins that allow for experimentation). You've got a Kraftwerky vibe going but that's somewhat of an easy comparison. I do know that it takes a great deal of creativity, patience and know-how to pull this off. I dig it!

Having listened to some of your music before I knew exactly what I was in for. Right off the bat it sounded familiar. This song got into a nice rhythmic pattern. No idea how you do what you do but I enjoyed listening to this.

Love the marching feeling of this song... sounds really interesting. Then it goes into a robotic samba groove that got me moving. Really cool!
