New Module, White Whale, Brings Monome To Eurorack Modular Synths

monome.org has introduced white whale – a new Euro module that lets you use a monome grid controller as the interface to a grid-enabled live probabilistic step sequencer. According to the developers, “white whale is the culmination of methods and experiments based on a decade of step sequencer design for the grid”. Here’s a video demo… Read More New Module, White Whale, Brings Monome To Eurorack Modular Synths

Sector Turns Your iPad Into A Stochastic Sample Slice Sequencer

Composer/developer Jonatan Liljedahl (Kymatica) has released Sector – a new app for iPad that lets you slice and sequence your loops with a network of Markov-chain connections. A Markov chain is a stochastic process where what happens next depends only on the current state of the system. According to Liljedahl the uniquely visual loop slice sequencer lets… Read More Sector Turns Your iPad Into A Stochastic Sample Slice Sequencer

Robotic Drums Pairs Analog-Modeling Drum Synthesis With Probabilistic Sequencing

Big Robot Studios has released Robotic Drums for iOS, an analog-modeled drum synth coupled with probabilistic sequencing. Features: A minimalist interface, with a high emphasis in flow. 6 analog modeled synthesized voices. A probability sequencer. You control how “random” a sequence is. Quantized pattern switching. Dropbox support for saving sessions and sharing across devices. AudioBus support.… Read More Robotic Drums Pairs Analog-Modeling Drum Synthesis With Probabilistic Sequencing

New Eurorack Modular, Mr. Crotchety, Does What It Damn Well Pleases

Division 6 has announced a new module for Eurorack synthesizers , Mr. Crotchety, that does what it damn well pleases. Here’s how they explain it: At its heart, Mr. Crotchety is a random voltage generator. …only it’s not really random. This module has moods. I’d love to explain how to use it, but during development… Read More New Eurorack Modular, Mr. Crotchety, Does What It Damn Well Pleases

Cosmosƒ Advanced Stochastic Synthesis Instrument Now Available On Windows & Mac

sonicLAB has updated its Cosmosƒ advanced stochastic synthesis instrument to version 1.2, bringing the software synth to Windows for the first time. Here’s what’s new in Cosmosf: Cosmosf v1.2 adds an additive synthesis engine. Up to 12 partials with individual amplitude and frequency settings are summed as one micro event waveform. The partials can play sine… Read More Cosmosƒ Advanced Stochastic Synthesis Instrument Now Available On Windows & Mac
