A tiny knob can have a big impact on a patch! Today we used the 321 as a plain offset generator: we distributed it to SAPÈL’s modulation input, USTA’s pitch shift, and BRENSO’s Mod Bus CV input. Then, we inverted this last one, so that when the 321 offset is negative, timbre modulation is high and the sequence is low and slow. When the 321 offset is positive, the sequence is faster, higher, and with no modulation! Do you like to play with plain DC offsets? If so, how?
- 1 321
- 1 333
- 1 SAPÈL
- 1 BRENSO
- 1 USTA
- Set up a sequence on the USTA sequencer and quantize it. Use SAPÈL as the external clock.
- Patch USTA’s CV A to BRENSO’s V/oct input and the gate A to the Ping input.
- Patch BRENSO’s Final output to your favorite output section.
- Activate the offset on a section of the 321.
(With nothing patched to its input, it will create a DC offset.)
- Patch the section’s output to the 333.
- Patch the first copy to SAPÈL’s Gate/CV Modulation input and set the switch to the right.
- Patch the second copy to USTA’s CV A or B input and route it to Pitch Shift.
- Patch the third copy to BRENSO’s Mod Bus CV input and invert it with the attenuverter.
- Play the sequence and practice the differences between positive and negative offsets!
