Re: Alien voices

Modeling a known unknown can be difficult enough on its own, but you are attempting to describe an unknown unknown. This usually falls into the category of "making stuff up as you go along", so almost anything would qualify as an "alien" sound/voice and the better question becomes "can I do somethin...

Re: The DotCom Q960 sequencer "package" .. some questions.

I agree, that the q960 works well enough by itself, but gets interesting with a sequential switch (I personally like the Moon 564 over the dotcom, just for the greater range of options) and having a q963 trigger bus or two makes life fun; quantizer suite is not necessary but can be interesting. As f...

Re: Finite state machine module - FSM?

clock timing from a S&H and noise generator, sequencer set to "random" (many seem to have this option, an SSL V-Gates module can also work in place of a sequencer--plug CV out from S&H to oscillator, quantizer may be useful), bell sound from an FM source, ring modulator, Radio Music sample player or...

Many sequencers can be set so that the user can manually select a particular stage. Providing a gate out at each stage in this case means you dont need to patch something together that would create a gate in parallel with the CV output or try to time a manual gate pulse.
