Techno and modular go hand in hand, so it would be rude not to do a demo of the Octocontroller without including some techno!
In this patch I wanted to demonstrate the sample and hold CV functions of the Octocontroller. The Octocontroller has a random CV output that you can loop, it is a really handy feature and also very musical. The random CV can also be limited to a quantized one octave range which makes it very quick and easy to use in a musical way.
If you have already watched some of the other patch demos then you may want to skip to one minute to get to this patch.
The Abstract Data ADE-32 Octocontroller is an 8 output 12 function digital control module that can provide multiple, synced - trigger, rhythm, modulation and control signals.
There are 12 different output types including Gates, LFOs and S&H. Each output type also has an 'option' giving a total of over 40 potential output types. Any of the modulation types can be assigned to any of the 8 outputs in any order.
In this series of videos we will be using the Octocontroller at the centre of all the patches. All the clocking and pitch information will be coming straight from the Octocontroller and will be completely driving the whole patch.
Abstract Data Octocontroller is available at many good modular stockists priced at £299 - as with many smaller manufacturers, stocks are limited so you may have to pre-order.
