An Introduction To Generative Patching With Modular Synthesizers

In this video, Eurorack synth designer Eric Schlappi (Schlappi Engineering) takes a look at generative patching techniques for modular synthesizers.

The video was originally created as part of Portland Community College’s Music & Sonic Arts program in Spring 2020.

In the video, Schlappi diswcusses generative patching techniques, including a patch breakdown of synthesist Todd Barton’s Krell Muzak patch, and a generative patch inspired by Rob Hordijk’s Benjolin.

Schlappi notes that, in the video, he discusses Krell is a reference to Fantastic Planet, but that it is actually a reference to Forbidden Planet and its soundtrack by Bebe and Louis Barron.
