Patchable 0018

Nature

September brings the transition from Summer to Fall reminding us of the world outdoors.  We’ve spent the bulk of our time indoors for over six months and let’s face it, we all need the soul soothing nature offers. This months Patchable encourages you to draw inspiration from nature.

Patch the sound of a chirping bird in a nearby tree or wind blowing through leaves and chimes.  Create the sound of waves crashing on the shore or footsteps in wet sand. Go underwater to design the sounds of whalesong and bubbles escaping sea anenome.  Generate the sound of a field of locust or a swarm of bees.  The options are nearly endless but the choice is yours.

THE CHALLENGE

You are free to write an entire song or simply create a single sound. Your submission can be structured or unstructured.  You simply must use a modular synth in your submission and nature as inspiration for your patch.

I may not have clocked the envelope for this. A mangled triangle wave from Pamela’s New Workout into PWM of Grandmother’s Oscillator 1 set to Pulse Wave. Osc 1 Wave Out finally into CV 2 of SEM. SEM into Tangle Quartet and… Read more »
