New user here, loving VCV Rack but totally new to modular. I’m comfortable now with setting up chord progressions with a clock and sequencer (mostly the Bogaudio addr-seq for this task) and something like VCV Chords (I usually use Chords since it’s so easy to have full control over each specific chord voicing), but that’s always moving in a regular steady rhythm, for example a four step/chord progression with one chord per measure.
I’m wondering if there’s a relatively simple way to have, for example, the first chord last 5 beats, the second 3 beats, the third 3 beats, and the fourth 5 beats, something like that. I could take the clock out of the picture and just trigger each chord myself, but then the rhythm won’t be 100% accurate…I’m hoping since I’m new to this that there’s something obvious I’m just overlooking/don’t understand yet!
You can accomplish this with Computerscare Laundry Soup.
In to the top text field, clock Laundry Soup with your base clock, and send Laundry’s output to VCV Chords’ ADV input. I think you’ll also need to hook Laundry Soup’s EOC output to Chords’ RESET input to make sure your sequence repeats every 4 chords (16 beats).
One thing I’ve been experimenting with a lot recently it’s creating sequences, then using a quantizer and modulating its root note with another sequence. You can get some pretty neat progressions by doing this. It usually looks something similar like this:
