Exploit "unexpected behaviour"

Post by Pighood » Sun May 10, 2020 9:21 pm

When presented with eccentricities in modules, this is the ideal time to just ENJOY their "faults" since this can more often than not be a means to an interesting end. FIGHT ME. :hmm:

Can any of you glitch a module like this?

I cannot throw any fists here. Primarily because of social distancing, but also because I've always found myself attracted to modules with these sorts of personality quirks.
"Ah yeah, you’ve got that strange blend of apathy and self-flagellation that somehow gets you where you want to go."

Not a fault, but i always found the stages "noise hack" very creative:

+1 on this.
Having modules (or synths in general) with quirks / 'faults' is something I find frustrating most of the time. :bang:
That being said, I would love to hear examples of modules where you can actually exploit them and use them to your advantage!

Good point !

i think we have to distunguish between quirks that are just there,
like lets say a low quality/resolution sound, thats just there, and not to overcome,
or then the quirks that happen cause you "stretch" the modules over its limits,
lilke lets say to fast midi modulations or otherwise a midi overload on some romplers.

The threads Header is finally: "unexpected behaviour" !




yes, some shitty soundquality on some samplers or other digital modules, especially from some specific manufactures were also "unexpected" at first ;) :mad: :lol:
guess that was not the point of the OP.....
some people liked the Phonogene for example........i was never interested.
Piston Honda mkI might be one of the classics for an example where its low soundquality turned it to something special,
the quirk even becoming the gold. (never had one) Also some other early digital wavetable VCOs, if not all of them ?

ahh, Nebulae2:
In phasevocoder mode (blend at CCW) is it slewing the attacks of percussive material.
depends a bit, but sometimes really dramatically. this can be perceived as quite disturbing when your idea was to listen to your original percussive modular loop in its original state.
But can also turn to plain gold when you modulate some specific parameters.
I got funny things out, up to awesomeness, where finally the coming out sounds were no longer slewed like fuck,
but ploppy and slappy as can be. :love:
edit: and up into LPGish territory. :love: its really a funny thing

Sometimes unexpected behavior is unwanted and annoying, but sometimes the silver lining turns out to be a massive silver mine.

Hi,

The great destroyer by Dwarfcraft Devices.

I'm very conflicted with this module:

- i like it's brutal handle of signals.
- i like the STARVE knob.
- i hate the range of CV input (almost non-existent, particularly for the GAIN CV)
- i dislike the fact that the input signal has to be very low

... but ...

when the gain knob is almost CCW the level at the input determined a subharmonic output of the input signal.

Not enought but nice to have.

Marco.

I don't mind quirks if I know what they are. It drives me up the wall if I have a full patch going and I keep thinking "what's doing that?"

I remember Brian Eno saying he preferred the rev1 DX7 because they fixed a glitch in rev2.
Is it finished?
