I’m pretty sure I already have an unrecorded “phazing” piece using this but I think I’ll start from scratch. Seems good.

I’m using Impromptu Chord-Key to set my chords and I want to control it with a sequencer. What would people here use for a random (but not too random) sequencer?

That would work but I’ve used it before. It’s one of those great Stoermelder “problem solvers”. I’m trying that new JW 8Seq to see if it’s approach to randomness works for me. Imagine using it with 4hands or Jooper to move the scene when you reach eoc.

If you don’t need to control them live, you can try with MusiMath, MusiFrog (they produce 1V/oct sequences) : they are all deterninistic (pseudo-random) with an “underlaying” periodic math formula that can produce nice patterns (for example start with MusiMath, with a random increment value, base=1 and skip repetitions mode) … though - to be honest - I myself am still not able to “control” them enough … :roll_eyes:

… so tempting to just link the Organ Three module to Entrian Melody with Green Onions MIDI file imported …


Here is my entry. Organ meets Permutations.

To dance in the church


Sure, I’ll play! A quick, semi-generative 60’s grade Z Spy film theme song. The bass, pad and lead “fuzz” guitar are all using Squinky Labs organ modules.


What if Áine O’Dwyer - Music For Church Cleaners but oh, what if radio.garden, that app for live radio from around the world and the weird shit you can find … I need a preacher! And then I left it there, right at silly.

(Contains Valhalla reverb, some radio static from a VST and a sample of mechanical, woody noises)


Modulating an Organ Three with a VCO and Shepard Generator to create a slowly evolving drone. Extra textural elements are provided by parallel processing the drone with further ambience provided by Trummor 2 set to long attack/decay and lots of reverb/delay.

For this patch I used PS Meander to drive three organ voices (bass, harmony and melody) made with Organ Three. PS Meander is adjusted with some random variations in the harmony and melody lines. I think one could play this in a noodling session on a two clavier organ with a full pedal set and a rhythm box. It is all very traditional :smiley:

some noise :star_struck:


Hi there. This is my first attempt in VCP for a looong time. The first 25 minutes of this video I played a patch which is my entry into this contest. I only used free modules. Cheers


I like this dark vibrations. So cool. Ideal for horror movies. Cheers


:sunglasses: You know, I could actually see the girl with the Mary Quant A-line dress, Vidal Sassoon bob cut, and a Walther PPK hidden in her white vinyl go-go boots.


VERY cool patch Markus! Love it.
