It has been 56 days since I’ve worn what would qualify as pants. Netflix needs to stop shaming me with, “Are you still watching?” Or at least start asking, “Do you really need more chips?” My quar buzz cut is starting to grow out and I get tired from taking a shower.
Confinement has us all experiencing unfamiliar restrictions. Let’s turn those restrictions into something productive and creative together.
This patchable encourages you to explore square waves. FM a VCO with a square wave and output the square wave. Open a VCA with a GATE instead of an envelope. Ping a filter, delay or any sound processor with a GATE. Send timed GATES to CV inputs on various modules. Send a square wave LFO to multiple destinations. Send an audio rate square wave to a clock divider and output multiple divisions to a mixer. Turn other waves into square waves with a S&H. Be creative and come up with your own use of square waves. The only rule here, you must only use square waves as your control or sound source.
