My entry for the VCP-54 challenge.
A bit of vintage nostalgia for mall rats
I fed one of the arps into a snare drum for both melody and percussion, and then trashed everything.
The other arp is for the bass.
Here’s the patch… https://patchstorage.com/interlude-vcp-54/
Love it. That Additator pitch modulation is
I like how you mapped the two Arps. Feel like part of an old eighties video game, entering a room and have some nice background music to the game
Thanks Logorrhoia, I like to do nostalgic sounding patches.
I used 2 of these ARP things in my patch this time. One to create the weird shimmery stuff and another to create the bass. Here, try it:

It’s got some nice '80s keyboards and slow gated reverb drums with some FM ambience. (Suddenly I sound like an estate agent). I spent a lot of time worrying myself about how to structure the piece (trying to turn stuff off and on with an LFO) and then just used my normal approach (with gate-seq64). Actually, @ablaut could we have a vcp focused on some particular form of structuring? Ideally something that all the clever composers use that I don’t know. I liked being forced to learn merengue last time, even if I did a bad job.
edits for clarity.
Some good news reached me while on this challenge and shaped the result. While trying to focus on Hampton Harmonic’s Arp I also tried to work with modules I rarely use. mscHack’s Triad 2 might become a more frequent guest to my pachtes as will oscillators by dbiz.
One chord/seq on Keystep, chord in 2 ARP from HamtonHarmonics, FM-OP poly, drums (classic one)
Performance on Beatstep Pro : mute on MixMaster and variations Pattern/Octave of ARP via encoders

Lovely chord progression.
it’s close to unbelieveable, but finally I managed again to contribute in the VCP, here it is, enjoy and stay healthy
finally I finished again an entry for the VCP
so here is my little try at the Hampton Harmonics ARP module,
I sequenced the whole thing a bit with my mouse, so please be gentle
the patch is here:
Bien, les accords with flutter !
Merci Giovanni. C’est gentil à toi
Haven’t done one of these in a minute. Used only two of the arps for a nice minimal ambient track.
