Finally on to something new. Been going so much all over that I am happy I got back to this to get it to where I am rather happy. Now onto flow and movement, but at least this far … Uses one VST, the SpitfireLabs Onde Musicale in Metallique mode. The rest are all I think free, the Vult ones are the commercial ones, but if you edit the .vcv file to cahnge ‘VultModules’ to ‘VultModules Free’ all should be fine even on free version, no guarantees though :wink:

Thanks a lot!

Nice! Really cool sounds, and a nice vibe to it. I like!

Thanks a lot @Quetzalcoatl ! Appreciated :slight_smile:

A Patch that originated in Rack 0.5.2, was updated to v1 when it came out. I just found it again yesterday and updated it to v2,1,0. Buchlaeque and east coast in one I guess, all pitch and gate/trigger generation is handled by Nysthi’s amazing Warren Burt MetaAardvark clone (sanctioned) and the Source of Uncertainty clone of the Buchla module. The sound is all Vult modules and MindMelt and Valley and a few other things to ‘master’ this, no DAW was abused in recording this, this is straight from Rack.

This is a study of unexpected overtones. Scale is the Terry Riley Albion Inverted scala file tuned to root of E. The patch cross modulates and blends all the sound that the resonators (Southpole Annuli and a Audible Instruments Resonator and FM deep bass generate changes the overtones produced by the Clouds (Southpole Smoke). A few Caudals thrown in to modulate things to wherever and back. Any change whatsoever alters the soundscape.

Still processing, but put on subwoofer or good headphones and crank this. I could let this play forever with tweaking little things.

Patch requires Southpole plugins, as well as Host, Valhalla Supermassive and Pathset Infinity’s Sifter (a cool take on granular) and the Shapemaster Pro, but here it is, tweak things at your peril or delight :wink:

Hello there, are the Southpole modules available for V2? A great resonant track with a lot of atmosphere! Do you mind sharing the scale file for the Terry Riley Albion, is it freely available? Much appreciated.

It’s in the full scala scale archive, it’s in the res/microtuning folder in the Nysthy plugin, but you have to unzip it yourself. Then go nuts. :wink:

You could swap the Annuli’s out for Audible Instruments Resonators and the Smokes with Clouds (supercell et al) albeit the patch would grow by many an HP… I built it from Steve Russel’s fork many a month ago, it was always my go-tos due to small size and all features there… So you could build your own I guess… No official port as not yet OK from original dev why seems to have gone quiet…

And thanks kindly for the kind words :slight_smile:

Well I have unzipped the Scala Rar, so what is the Albion called, there are so many! Got it, thanks for your time.

riley_albion.scl :slight_smile: , sorry, should have stated that

And very careful tweaking anything, radically changes sound in no time. I save at every point I like after tweaking things, just so I can get back to there when I mess things up too much, easy to do. Most temperamental patch I have made yet :wink:

Have fun

4 Glass Panes and 4 Opuli (plural of Opulus ?) with 2 Algomorphs and some delays and a few more bits and bobs and stuff patched in. Generative. Slow. The Glass Panes can all be different length due to the way each is patched, so they tend to interplay in interesting yet not completely random ways.

2 Opuli in Additive mode, 4 in FM mode. All modulated so the whole thing evolves and moves sound forever, also never starts or plays the same. Basically a Turing machine wired in VCV to honor the modular without actual sequencer setup. No drums were abused. Bass layers -3, -2, -1 in frequency and the V/Oct pitched down by an octave. Bass track a second copy with a one sample delay (sort of the studio trick to mix the mic in the mixing room with the bass coming from the recording booth. Sometimes gets a little thin and high in frequency but no ear-shredding things I can detect. Sub is def a plus, or good headphones, this moves sound wise even it is at a nominal 10ish bpm. No DAW was abused either.

Same patch as previous, but a lot of patching mistakes (things connected in reverse) were fixed, and a bit of further tweaking of things. This version is also as Rack started up, as this is an always playing patch that starts to make sound only when mixer main is unmuted/faded in. This sounds much more of what I had in mind in a rough sketch from the beginning of this patch. It is just off by enough to be ever morphing in sound with the very occasional bit of glitchiness and wobble, compared to a reset before unmuting/fading in mixer main.

I like it.

Weird play behavior for me when played embedded within your post. First play press shows a broken video link. A second press starts to play, but then aborts prematurely.

Plays fine when played directly from YouTube site.

hrmph, never seen this issue, must be a new tube hiccup. Maybe reload and see if it behaves better? on FB the thumbnail doesn’t even show. Tried many times to fix since but no dice, so I give up for now :wink:

Edit: Seems to have fixed itself now.

Opuli and a Terraform, usual suspects in all my patches abound, modulation from 2 Caudals and 1 8FO, Bass by FM-OPs, Trummor2 and Hora HiHat for drums, with Vult Lapsus driving them. There is one sequencer in there (Lapsus) but only to drive the drums, so not strictly a ‘No Sequencer’ patch after all, but that was needed for some grounding of this.

The Simpliciter excites a delay and a Rescomb filter providing a rhythmic background texture
