Re: Order to random

disappeared off on a sponsored bicycle journey to Greece :yay: Welcome back. I also like that gray area between order and random so I'm interested in what you come up with. I like patterns to emerge out of ambiguity. I've seen nice ways of doing this but they end up using too many modules for my se...

Re: Utility filters...

Filters for function rather than character.
I have an old Intellijel uVCF that's been good for that. Has a "clinical" neutral sound. Can fill in as a sine oscillator (crank the Q up). Good I/O.

I haven’t compared those but the NLC one is very nice. Either way, you may find you want to shape the resulting envelope.

Re: Penrose Possibles (Open Source Sonic Potions Quantizer)

For variety, I'm adding this Penrose example which has a different feel from the previous one. This is 4:30 of leisurely free running background, mostly Chirper chatter. The "bass line" pitches come from the Penrose which quantizes a DDSR D/A and is triggered by Grille's first trigger output. SelfRu...

Re: Electronic music is the music of automation and accidents

What the OP called “accidents” maybe is better called improvisation. I mean, something you didn’t plan happens and you were listening (very important) and reacted to that, creating something you might not have even thought of, let alone composed.

Re: BEGINNERS - What have you always found to be poorly explained?

I was very confused with VCAs at the beginning. The "A" stands for "amplifier", which in everyday language, means "to make louder". I was wondering why making something louder was so important. But most VCA's don't make the signal louder at all. I read or heard somewhere someone say that it helps t...

Re: Power Switch module?

I wouldn't want the AC supply up so close to the panel. A quick search turns up some remote control AC power switches. My search for "remote control AC power switch" found one on ebay for $13. These things use a little key fob to activate them. You could probably DIY that onto a blank panel.

How about a quad of Serge's 3900 based comparator circuit. Cheap and simple but you need to give it an LFO or something and then patch some of the outs to ins to complicate things.

Re: Amp clamp meter to meassure total current draw ?

Those are for A.C. circuits and you have to clamp around one of the conductors, not the whole cable. To measure your plus and minus DC loads you could use most multimeters but you need to insert the meter in the circuit, cutting the wire or otherwise disconnecting it somewhere.
