This patch explores the different behaviors of FALISTRI’s green generator, but at audio rate! When it is is set ‘On Rest’, it will ignore all the incoming trigs until it has reached its ‘Rest’ stage; when its frequency is lower than the master oscillator, it will divide its frequency in a ‘formant-like’ effect.

  1. Unmount the module and set the switch on the back of the PCB to ‘To Rise’
  2. Set the yellow FALISTRI’s generator to ‘Loop’ mode.
  3. Set its Time Scale to ‘Short’.
  4. Set its ‘Rise’ knob fully counter-clockwise and its ‘Fall’ knob at 9 o’clock.
  5. Set the green generator to ‘Transient’ mode
  6. Set its Time Scale to ‘Short’
  7. Set its ‘Rise’ and ‘Fall’ knobs fully counter-clockwise.
  8. Patch the yellow EOR to the green generator’s Trig input.
  9. Patch its bipolar output to your favorite output section.
  10. Move the ‘Rise’ and ‘Fall’ knobs clockwise.
    (You will notice that the sound will resemble a sort of Sync function. It is softer in sound than a conventional Hard Sync because the yellow generator, the “master” does not force a complete restart of the yellow one, but it recalls the rising stage only.)
  11. Now turn off your system, unplug your FALISTRI, set the switch on the back to ‘On Rise’ and repeat the intructions.
    (Now increasing the green generator’s times will increasingly divide the oscillator’s frequency, because the retrig happens only when the “slave” has finished its cycle. This behavior is often referred to as “Formant Oscillator” because the harmonic content does not change according to the pitch. It can provide interesting tones when modulated, e.g. with SAPÈL!)
