Nice pocket tune :+1:

Somehow your tune reminded me of this:

(Probably because both have melodic stuff, a heavy kick and some weird fm/pm noises :smile:)

I am really enjoying the drum tools you made. Your kicks are extremely useful. Often, I’ll just record the kick and dump it because of my cpu limits. I am looking forward to just continuing along with synthesis — so much to explore. I will push myself to make more complicated tracks, but I have always been a sucker for simple Chicago house.

At the same time, it doesn’t strike me as music to stare at. Seems to work best with multiple tracks mixed end to end, played in the background while doing dishes.

Thanks :smiley:

I really enjoy making these modules so it’s great to hear that you find them useful.

Btw if you have any suggestions for specific percussive sounds I would be happy to try and make them (I get to learn and make stuff and you get new modules so … win win :upside_down_face:)

I think there is nothing wrong with simple tracks but if making more complicated stuff is really what you want, sure go for it :smiley:

A shaker that can be driven by an LFO.

Thoughts on other percussion modules:

It would be ideal to have an array of primitive/global/tribal/? instruments. I was using Korg Gadget yesterday to feed midi to Audulus and although I like the workflow in Gadget, having worked in Audulus for a while, I found the internal sound pallets very dull and generic. They should have someone go in there and reshelve the presets! What I like with Audulus is that when I get several voices going I always want to tweak them to each other. With Gadget, I find myself pitching, enveloping and EQing, but it’s not the same as working with the raw modules.

I imagine that in terms of a set of primitive modules, one approach would be to try to find the central essence of a sound so that deviations from this core would lead to sonically interesting territories. I believe that’s what makes certain digital Eurorack modules justifiable — you have an array of wide-ranging parameters open for exploration to the degree to which the results are worthwhile.

So the step in this direction is to investigate all kinds of different tools. One could even include the upside down plastic bucket snare, for example.

I really like this channel:

I made an actual track with your noise shaker. I think it’s fantastic how it runs off an LFO. In fact, all of the percussion on this one is from your collection.

That sounds great :+1: (but a little bit much talking for my taste)

Well the LFO thing was your idea. I just put the noise module through a band pass filter … thats it :smile:
