Patchable 0020

REPATCH

It has been over a year since our first Patcahable 0001 – 3 Module Challenge. There have been so many fantastic submissions showing a huge range of expression and creativity from our community. Maybe you saw a Patchable that interested you, but did not have the time to join in.  Maybe you saw one but did not have a module needed or a solid grasp on the technique required. Maybe you learned something from a past Patchable and want to do a new version. Regardless of circumstance, now is your chance to go back and Repatch.

For the month of November, we want to revisit our past challenges by asking you to select a Patchable from the past. Peruse the wide variety of challenges from sound design, synthesis techniques, music theory and module deep dives. Feel free to listen to previous submissions for inspiration or just for fun. All previous Patchable challenges are listed at the bottom of this page for convenience.

THE CHALLENGE

Select and execute a Patchable from the past. 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.

HOW TO PLAY

THIS PATCHABLE RUNS FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER – DEADLINE NOVEMBER 30TH

I will be running the gauntlet and doing as many of these as I can until November 30th. This is for Patchable 0001, doing the 3 module challenge, using Make Noise Maths, Erbeverb as an “oscillator”, and an Intellijel Quadrax. All funcations are set to various styles of LFOs. The primary rhythms are coming from the different speeds between the two channels of Maths, one assigned to input, and one assigned predelay. Quadrax is controlling size, decay time, tilt, and depth parameters. This patch is very “off the grid.” Enjoy!
