More Maths tips - this module continues to inspire me! Picking up on this thread over at Muff Wiggler's forum on how to attain trills and bursts from Maths, I tried Yohda's patch:
It works a treat! As per Yohda's suggestion I used a mixer/ VCA, but I think Rechner7 is right: a logic module would be better: when I lengthen the decay time in the example, you can hear some 'flamming' where the gates overlap.
The patch is simple: use channel 4 as your envelope, as it is equipped with an EOCycle rather than channel 1's EORise. An LFO clocks a sequencer and A-160/161 clk div/ seq. The main gate is sent to channel one of a VCA-4MX and the EOC to channel two. This is gated by the division output of your choice from the A-160/161 combo.
You could also replace the A-160/1 combo with a Wogglebug to VC Maths' 'both' input, transpose the sequence and use its burst output to generate random trills:
Pills, Trills & Wogglecake
Be sure to read Tony Rolando's patch tips for gated looping in that thread. And thanks to Mr White (Mr Yellow) for asking the question!
EDIT: the trills patch will also work with a Bananalogue/ Serge VCS! I also replaced the VCA-4MX in the patch with an A-134-2 VC Xfader to generate somewhat 'cleaner' trills. Using a cross-fader means the main gate is 'pushed out of the way' when you want the EOC to take priority.
