  1. Drumming Delight: Traffic, Particles, and More for Modular Rhythm Evolution!

    In this article, we explore the combination of the "jasmine-olive-trees-traffic" and "patching-panda-particles" modules to enhance your modular rhythm evolution. The "jasmine-olive-trees-traffic" module is a powerful trigger-based CV controller that allows you to control multiple sounds from a single oscillator using triggers. It features three rows of knobs with corresponding outputs and a global trigger output for seamless synchronization. The CV outputs can range from +-8V and can be set to unipolar as well. The "patching-panda-particles" module, on the other hand, offers four channels of trigger modulation and pattern variation. With various features like shifting, scrambling, muting, and probability triggers, it allows you to create complex and groovy patterns effortlessly. By combining these modules, you can take your rhythmic ideas to the next level and explore new sonic possibilities. Watch them in action and discover the potential of your modular setup.

  5. Exploring the Dual Euclidean Sequencing with Rebel Technology's Stoicheia Black

    The article titled 'Exploring the Dual Euclidean Sequencing with Rebel Technology's Stoicheia Black' delves into the functionalities of Stoicheia Black, which is a dual Euclidean sequencer. The module generates rhythmic sequences algorithmically based on an input trigger signal, and each sequence is regulated by a column of three knobs and a switch. The article highlights that the length of the sequence is measured in clocks or beats and can range from 1 to 16, with the center position being at 8. The number of on-beats is controlled by the third knob, where fully clockwise sets every beat 'on.' The article provides an overview of the top knob's function, which adjusts the beat the sequence starts on, allowing users to rotate the sequence left or right. Furthermore, the updated version of Stoicheia doesn't require a 5V rail and is available in kit form from Befaco Synths.
