Yo! I haven’t had much time for making full patches lately, I was bored of the same ol same ol, and so I made a little modular drum machine (kick, snare, & hihat) with free modules. Anyone want to mess with it by adding more drums, melody, harmony, whatever? I just set up a pretty lame sequence to hear the sounds right away and there is no effects yet. Feel free to change/add anything and everything, including the clock, sequence, mixer, effects, sounds, who cares. Add 1 part, add several parts, delete ppl’s parts, finish the whole thing, twist one knob, or turn your nose up at it and move on! My only ask is don’t use any ready-made drum sounds or sample-based modules.
When you add to the patch, include your name, and update the version number chronologically. And you can go back to previous versions if you don’t like the latest version. Have fun and I won’t be offended if no one takes me up on this.

Here’s a Strip file of the drum kit if you rather bring into your own template patch: (you’ll need to change from *.vcv to *.vcvss and load as a Strip preset): ModularDrumBox001 (Adi) StripFile.vcv (29.1 KB)
good to see a new try on the musical pals,
yoiu just need to rename the file type of strip presets from
vcvss to vcv and tell explain this change in the description here.
like I did here:
Ah I see, good call @rsmus7 ! Going to edit the original post…
Added a melody voice and some reverb/delay. Key of G minor. Chord progression - G, Eb, Bb, F. Had to change to a bigger mixer.

Hi @AdiQ this is my little add for Musical Pals. Don’t have much time to build something big. I decide to make little strip file with Seasons sequecer and Basal from Vult to play live :D. Cheers

Hey, thanks @rickglasser & @jedrzejewskimk for contributing to this! I was surprised & delighted by the direction both of you took it, which is what makes this fun. I adjusted the quantizer set-up in the Ghalebor strip to match Rick’s chord progression, added some tweaks here & there, and I realized you can type names in the mixer. Good times so far. Who’s next?

Love the Slew/Gliss you added to the melody and @Jedrzejewskimk’s arp.
All looks avesome maybe sounds too (my poor computer can’t handle this at this level :D) I hope someone record final video. For now wait for next. Cheers
Ghalebor/Adi: Here is a short taste of where we are. I added a compressor and mid/side encoder to widen the stereo field. ModularDrumBox004 (Adi-Flydoggy-Ghalebor).vcv (106.3 KB)
I think it sounds really good!
Lovely stuff ! Keep up the good work rackers !
@AdiQ Hope you are doing good and that Uni isn’t too hard on you these days
Oh It souds realy cool, I’m glad to hear how it works together at this step. I can imagine how grow this project So who is next? BTW thanks @AdiQ for upgrade fixing my addition. Cheers
Very nice, love the stereo image! Thanks for recording that! And I’m not totally sure, but it’s possible that reset button needs to be hit so the lfo, divider, & Seasons lines up. In hindsight, I probably should have just used Clocked lol
Oh man, Uni is rough! I’m hanging in there though, I hope you are too my friend. Good thing there is VCV to keep us sane…
No problemo Mateusz, it was a lovely addition you made that fit the larger piece Yes who is next?! Someone could easily dirty this patch up and bring it to a new place, or we could start Musical Pals 6
@AdiQ I thought I hit the reset before recording, but it may have slipped my mind. I know I added a couple more connections to the reset. The LFO does make it tricky to keep things lined up, but not a bit problem. I also think that Debriatus and T-rex de-tune the Seasons notes just enough that it can sometimes sound off-key.
Wonderful patch, thank you.
For some reason it reminds me of the song “Canción de invierno”.
I made a fork from version 003, took apart the generative part and added a sequencer for fixed chords and melody. The chord progression and the melody of the coda almost no repetitions, I had to stop when I reached the letter Z of I love cookies (great module).
