Let's put our modules to use in creating a spooky horror texture. We'll use the Mosaic Variable Delay, Instruo 1f, TipTop Audio Wayout8, 2hp Catnip, and Michigan Synth Works 2hp2cv.
First, let's start with the Mosaic Variable Delay. Set the mix knob to around 50% and the time knob to a moderate setting. Send an audio signal, such as a spooky synth melody, into the input of the delay. Adjust the feedback knob to create eerie, swirling echoes. Use a CV signal from the Instruo 1f to modulate the time knob, creating wobbly pitch-shifted effects.
Now, let's bring in the Instruo 1f. Connect two different audio sources to the inputs of the Instruo 1f. Use the crossfader function to fade between the two sources, creating subtle transitions or sudden changes in the texture. Experiment with attenuating and attenuverting the CV signals to add a dynamic twist to the crossfade.
Next, utilize the TipTop Audio Wayout8 to manage the signals in your patch. Connect the output of the Mosaic Variable Delay to one of the inputs on the TipTop Audio Wayout8. Connect the output of the Instruo 1f to another input. Use the patchbay functionality of the Wayout8 to route these signals to different destinations, such as effects modules or other sound sources.
Now, let's bring in the 2hp Catnip to add some horror-inspired effects. Patch the output of the TipTop Audio Wayout8 into the input of the Catnip. Use the various effects available in the Catnip, such as distortion, delay, and filtering, to transform the sound into something truly spooky. Experiment with voltage controlling different parameters of the Catnip using CV signals, such as modulating the delay time or controlling the filter cutoff.
Finally, let's use the Michigan Synth Works 2hp2cv module to incorporate control voltage from your computer or MIDI controller. Connect the 2hp2cv module to your computer using the USB connection. Use the CV signals generated by your computer or MIDI controller to modulate various parameters in your patch, such as the time knob on the Mosaic Variable Delay or the crossfade on the Instruo 1f. This adds an extra layer of control and modulation possibilities to your horror texture.
With the combination of the Mosaic Variable Delay, Instruo 1f, TipTop Audio Wayout8, 2hp Catnip, and Michigan Synth Works 2hp2cv, you can create a truly terrifying and immersive sonic experience. Experiment with different settings, patch configurations, and modulation sources to unleash a wide range of horrifying textures and atmospheres.
In this intermediate-level usage example, we will explore how to create eerie and atmospheric textures using the Mosaic Variable Delay, Instruo 1f, TipTop Audio Wayout8, 2hp Catnip, and Michigan Synth Works 2hp2cv modules.
- Start by sending an audio signal to the Mosaic Variable Delay module. Adjust the Time and Feedback parameters to create a rhythmic delay effect. Use slow modulation on the Time parameter for a haunting atmosphere.
- Take two audio signals that you want to crossfade and route them to the Instruo 1f module. Adjust the crossfader knob or use CV control to smoothly blend between the two signals. Experiment with different audio sources to create tension and suspense in your patch.
- Connect the output of the Instruo 1f module to the TipTop Audio Wayout8 patchbay. Use the Wayout8 to manage signals going to another case or to your DAW inputs and outputs. This will enable you to further process and manipulate your sound.
- Send the output of the Wayout8 to the 2hp Catnip module. The Catnip's multi-effects capabilities will add a touch of horror to your sound. Experiment with the different effects, such as distortion, reverb, and modulation, to create a ghoulish sonic atmosphere.
- To add CV control to the patch, use the Michigan Synth Works 2hp2cv module. Connect it to other modules in your setup using the MINI USB connection. This will allow you to modulate parameters such as the delay time, crossfade amount, and Catnip's effect parameters for added expressiveness and variation.
By combining the Mosaic Variable Delay, Instruo 1f, TipTop Audio Wayout8, 2hp Catnip, and Michigan Synth Works 2hp2cv modules, you can create spine-chilling textures, eerie crossfades, and haunting soundscapes. Experiment with different settings and modulation options to unleash your sonic creativity and explore the darkest corners of electronic music.
In this example, we will explore how the combination of the Mosaic Variable Delay, Instruo 1f, TipTop Audio Wayout8, 2hp Catnip, and Michigan Synth Works 2hp2cv modules can be used to create texture, crossfade, and horror effects in a eurorack setup.
To start, let's connect the TipTop Audio Wayout8 module to the inputs and outputs of our DAW. This will allow us to manage the signals coming in and out of our system. The grounded design ensures that even when there are no signals connected, the outputs remain grounded to minimize noise pickup.
Next, we'll take a spooky sound source and send it through the Michigan Synth Works 2hp2cv module. This module, which is a 2HP adaptation of the Mutable Instruments CVpal, allows us to convert a USB signal into CV. By connecting the Catnip module to the USB port and using the CV outputs, we can control various parameters of the Catnip module with our eurorack system.
Now, let's bring in the Instruo 1f module. This versatile module can serve as a crossfader, attenuator, attenuverter, and manual DC offset. We can use it to crossfade between different audio signals, attenuate an envelope, or invert modulation sources for unique effects. By combining the outputs of the Catnip module and another audio source, we can create eerie crossfaded textures.
To add even more texture and depth, we'll introduce the Mosaic Variable Delay module. This high-fidelity DSP delay provides echoes and rhythmic textures to our patch. We can control the mix, time, and feedback parameters either manually or through CV. By feeding the output of the Instruo 1f module into the Variable Delay module, we can achieve cavernous washes of sound or precise slapback delays to enhance the horror atmosphere.
By experimenting with different combinations, settings, and modulation sources, we can unleash a wide range of sonic fun, from subtle texture layers to haunting soundscapes. The Mosaic Variable Delay, Instruo 1f, TipTop Audio Wayout8, 2hp Catnip, and Michigan Synth Works 2hp2cv modules provide the tools and versatility needed to explore the realms of texture, crossfade, and horror in eurorack music production.
