Here I’ve chained the second “For Four” from Beat 1 of the first to get a longer bridge type fill. I used Beats 3 & 4 to add short accents and the fills adjust uGraphs’s map input to vary the drum pattern. The patch is in the repository if you want to try it.
I’ve also been experimenting with feeding VCO outputs to the Clk input and driving another VCO from the beat outputs. There’s lots of gurgly goodness and other freaky phonics to explore
Feedback and suggestions for improvement welcomed!
I’m only setup for building for Linux, but once I’m happy with it, I’ll be submitting to the library so it’s available for all platforms.
I’m currently thinking of replacing the Even output with the output of the 2nd For Four Fill in the drum example. I think it’ll be more useful with a single instance that way. Then I’ve the documentation to do before it’ll be ready for the library.
I’ve just updated the repo with the latest version. I’ve changed both the Even and Fill outputs to be configurable patterns. Each supports 256 different patterns, though not all of them will be much use. 0 is a constant high output and the higher numbered patterns output infrequently for example.
To match the original behaviour, set Pattern A to 4 and Pattern B to 12.
Edit: I’m now thinking of changing one of the counters to another pattern output. Anyone any opinions on which way is more useful for them? 2 patterns and 3 counters, or 3 patterns and 2 counters?
I think it should be the sole decider,
adding does work only when you arrange all patterns in a circle imho,
else what should you add to the pattern 255?
there would only be one pattern left. but when you send 10V to the CV input, what would happen then? Would you scale the input, or limit it, or …?
Thanks for the testing and feedback Stephan. I couldn’t actually try your patch as it’s a bit much for my machine (it does better with native builds). Here’s another example of how I planned to use For Four before it gained CV.
