Computerscare Modules Now Available for Rack v1

Are you sick of seeing module after module with:

  • consistent/“clean” graphics
  • round knobs
  • straight lines
  • proper fonts

???

Well then you’re in luck! I am happy to announce that version 1.0.0 of Computerscare Modules is now available in the plugin manager.

Brand new Polyphonic Utility Modules:

Knoly Pobs

16 knobs, polyphonic output, range: 0 - 10 volts.

Boly Puttons

16 latch buttons. On/off voltages selectable via right-click menu. Plugging in a polyphonic signal to the A/B inputs will override the selected on/off values and use the CV signals instead. If a monophonic signal is plugged into the “A” input, its voltage will be used for ALL “off/up” buttons. If an n-channel signal is plugged into the “A” input, the “off/up” button voltages will match the “A” channels up to n, and then re-start at “A” channel 1. Behavior is the same for the “B” input. Note that this behavior is different than the recommended method of handling polyphonic signals.

Roly Pouter

Re-route the channels of a polyphonic signal. If you select an input channel that is higher than the highest available channel of the input signal, the output voltage will be 0.

Soly Pequencer

Sequentially output the individual channel voltages of a polyphonic signal. Connecting a polyphonic signal to the clock input allows for multiple independent sequences. Polyphonic reset channels beyond the number of channels of the clock signal are ignored. I think that the clock/reset buttons will apply to all channels.

Toly Pools

  • Display input channel count
  • CV output of the input channel count (1 - 16 channels is linearly mapped to 0 - 10 volts)
  • Knob and CV for setting output channel count (0 - 10 volts linearly mapped to 1-16 output channels)
  • Knob and CV for rotating the polyphonic signal (0 - 10 volts sets rotation of 0-15 channels. For example: rotation of “1” will move input channel 2 -> output channel 1, input channel 3->output channel 2, … input channel 16 -> output channel 1)

Also included are our old friends from the previous releases with some improvements:

Debug - Multifunction voltmeter / display

  • Poly mode for clock and input, allowing it to function as a polyphonic sample&hold
  • Internal mode for clock and input, usable as a “realtime” polyphonic volt meter or noise source

Father & Son Patch Sequencer - Multi-scene patch matrix sequencer

  • Fully polyphonic input & outputs

Oh Peas! Quad Quantenuverter - Attenuverter, offsetter, quantizer

  • Polyphonic input, range CV, and offset CV

Laundry Soup - Rhythm sequencer

  • No Polyphony

I Love Cookies - CV / signal sequencer

  • No Polyphony

I can all but guarantee there are bugs. Please report at: https://github.com/freddyz/computerscare-vcv-modules/issues

Thank you so much and well done on the V1 port.

I love cookies is definitely very special.

It’s my great pleasure to join the long-awaited Computerscare Party!
Frankly, I’ve been terribly short of my absolute favorite module Cookies and…yes it’s not yet fully working (I already send to Adam my mini-report - aka FMTolstoevsky ;), but the main functionality of the module works perfectly.
And now it’s time to apologize deeply to Adam for my old-fashioned visual redrawing of his funny graphics (showed below) - actually I did it many months before (for his 062 version) and probably I am already too old to use the original acid-picassoish style panels… Sorry once more, and please don’t be offended by me, dear Adam, I use it for personal use only :smile: ! And, IMHO, the “musical content” of your collection is much more important and valuable.
OK, here is a picture of my very quick & basic patch with Cookies - Mike Hetrick’s Comparator (I know him for many years via Reaktor User Forum, BTW) and another huge new favorite of mine, Dopamine of Leonardo The Great (Gracias por su hermosa mini-colección, maestro!) performed by mighty Modal Synth (I already said before in 8Face thread that I simply can’t understand why so few people are using this wonderful module in their VCV-experiments - really a mistery for me…). Oops, also you could see here another redrawn module - mscHack’s excellent Mixer (I made it also about half a year ago for personal use, sure :), cosmetic visual mode of the best clock, Clocked (same comments as above) and last but not least Ritardo from still unofficial southpole’s great collection.
I also recorded with big problems a short video-audio demo (less than 1’30 min) - it’s called “Dopamine Cookies Blues” :sunglasses: I suppose to upload it soon just for fun on YouTube.

it’s nice that someone is pushing the envelope and trying something different. even tho personally i really like “clean” graphics…

streaming with some of the older Computerscare modules right now at the usual place (i don’t want to spoil the flow of the thread with a big stream preview)
edit: finished now.
