    Shifting Probability Clock

    This module takes the shifting clock divider idea from the 4ms Rotating Clock Divider and combines it with a few other features.


    BPM - the tempo of the master clock. The BPM value is derived by considering the /1 clock value is a 1/16th note. Resulting
    rhythms from this master clock might feel faster or slower than the actual displayed tempo. Maximum range 20-250BPM.

    pat - the divide by pattern. There are 8 of them - feel free to modify them. I picked these just based on how they sounded.

    Below are the patterns:

    1- /1/2/4/8/16/32/64/128
    2- /1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8
    3- /1/2/3/4/6/8/12/16
    4- /1/3/6/12/15/18/21/24
    5- /1/(2/3)/4/8/12/16/32/64
    6- /1/2.5/3.5/6.5/8.5/16.5/18.5/21.5
    7- /1/e/2e/3e/4e/5e/6e/7e
    8- /1/pi/2pi/3pi/4pi/5pi/6pi/7pi

    prob - Probability distribution of each clock trigger. This control can bias the probability of a trigger passing through to the output. .45-.55 on the prob knob is 100%. The red dots next to each divide-by number indicate the probability of that trigger (brighter = more probable).

    shift - This will shift the divide-by value from input 1 to input 2, input 2 to input 3, and so on, in 8 discrete steps. It looks like this:

    1- 12345678
    2- 81234567
    3- 78123456
    4- 67812345
    5- 56781234
    6- 45678123
    7- 34567812
    8- 23456781


    CV - resets the CV autoscale (ES-8 only)

    ES-8 - turns ES-8 functionality on and off. If you do not have an ES-8 and just want to use this module within Audulus, simply turn this option off.

    Expert Sleepers ES-8 Notes:

    CV inputs 1-4 control the knobs BPM, pat, prob, and shift, respectively.

    These controls will auto-range to whatever modulation source you apply. The larger the voltage swing of an LFO or static DC-source, the more resolution the knob will have. If using an LFO, force the LFO to go through 1 cycle to allow the module to analyze the minimum and maximum voltage.
