Yesterday I received the Droid modules (from dermannmitdermaschine Matthias Kettner) and today I had some time to play around with pathing it up, both internally and externally.
I don’t have much experience with eurorack pathing yet, therefor my pathcables are very simple. Just the mutable instruments plaits, rings, blinds and clouds where used. Together with the Synthstrom Deluge which outputs the main clocks and adds some (808) beats underneath the eurorack bleeps.
The Droid patch has 3 sequencers:
– 2 algoquencers, which are used for a bass sequence (plaits) and for another sequence (rings)
Both of these use 2 P2B8s from the droid system to offer a 16 gate buttons that are easily turned on and off (the red leds/buttons do the bass/plaits and the white leds/buttons do the rings)
– and a normal 8 step sequencer, which does the chord progressions and influences the other 2 sequences as well. These 8 steps are set by the small pots on the first P10.
Here is the Droid patch I used:
Ps. for some reason morph and dejavu settings didn’t work for me, thus I’m sure this can be improved, but this is how it was when this jam was made.
