Creating your own pseudo-random gates...possible, right?

Post by Devilwidget » Thu May 21, 2015 2:55 pm

So I am using an Octatrack to sequence my modular, but it has no clock input, so I can't add a little bit of spice by clocking it with a wogglebug or such. Can I do it the other way around - take the pulses spat out by the Octatrack and combine them in some sort of logic module with the wogglebug? Would that create a random effect? Something like the intellijel plog might do it, right? Or another module? Or am I barking up the wrong tree entirely?
thanks!

Yes that can be done or a clocked random module like the one from ladik :party:

defintely. Use AND logic so that the clock pulses from the octotrack fire on when a random pulse from wogglebug fires. You might need to experiment with gate lengths to avoid doubled triggers and such, but then again, that might be useful as well...

Does OT allow you to modulate internal LFOs by other internal LFOs?

E.g. Slewed random output of LFOa modulating rate of LFOb?

Good idea. I do this with the machinedrum and its trigger outputs. The internal LFOs have sample and hold that can be applied to the volume of the trigger, which causes missed triggers. Sometimes a comparator helps with this.
