Audio Damage - GrainShift/Errorbox/DubJr - Patch1

Audio Damage - GrainShift/Errorbox/DubJr - Patch1 from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

First late night jam with the new Audio Damage effects for Eurorack. Everything is being triggered/clocked via the Tiptop TriggerRiot. Kick drum source is the Cwejman BLD running into the "ADM02" Grainshift, turning the kick drum into granulated mush. Next source is the Z output from the Synthesis Technology E350 running into one MakeNoise - modDemix then sent to a TipTop Z5000, for intermittent CV control verb. The analog hand-clap from the Dync-Sync DrumDokta DRM-110 running into the "ADM01" DubJr Delay. Which is being strangled and mangled by one stepped output from the MakeNoise Wogglebug, which is also being clocked from the Trigger Riot. One sine output from the DPO running into another Optomix, triggered by channel A from Trigger Riot for synthetic double style FM high-hats, which is running into the Errorbox being slightly degraded and crushed. CV inputs Pitch and Chaos on the Grainshift controlled by erratic CV plot movements from the Rene sequencer (also clocked from the Trigger Riot). Bouncing ball effect from the MakeNoise Maths V2 channel output one, from FM Intellijel Rubicon, then sent to intellijel Planar for panning zigzag movements also being controlled by Maths V2, channel output 4. Drones running from the Mutable Instruments Braids into the Eventide Space reverb pedal fully wet mix.

Broken Delay - d0 CV Disturbances Patch

Broken Delay - d0 CV Disturbances Patch from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

Second patch using the karplus strong feedback setting with the Mungo d0 dual channel delay. This time taking both sine outputs and one from the final output from the MakeNoise DPO (only sound source). One sine was running into the d0 delay line A, and the other into B. The clocking source was the MakeNoise wogglebug, using clocked and gate bursts out to create random gestures and clusters. The wooglebug clock was then sent to a mult which was then clocked to the 4ms SCM input, shifted and rotated, to skew the timing even more for dotted tails and decays. Both sine outputs ran into the Optomix, strike input via the S5 output on the 4ms SCM. The changes in delay time A/B from the random stepped output from the wogglebug. This is the second experiment using the d0 as the main processing source, which can generate some very interesting broken glitchy iterations in the feedback path. The entire mix was ran into a Eventide space pedal for light reverb effect.

Mungo d0 dual channel delay - CV Glitch feedback patch

Mungo d0 dual channel delay - CV Glitch feedback patch from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

Zigzag karplus strong feedback percussion patch made with the Mungo d0 dual channel delay. Clocking sources MakeNoise wogglebug, using clocked and noise bursts outs. Muti clock to the 4ms SCM input, shifted and rotated. Noise sources are one single sine wave running into one channel on the Optomix, strike input via the S5 output on the 4ms SCM. This plucked sine wave is then being processed through the Mungo d0 delay. Gate burst out into the clocked input on the d0, creating broken glitchy iterations in the feedback path.

First look at the Malekko/Richter Megawave Voltage Controlled Wave Table Device from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

First patch using the Malekko/Richter Megawave. Using multiple synced Intellijel Dixie LFO's CV modulating the wave, bank, and Rom inputs. Cycling glitching through banks (MiniWave, Socket Rocket, PPPGVS, Darwin's House, and Monowave). CV control zigzag LFO patterns from the E355 Morphing Dual LFO set to control the Rom select. The output was then ran into the Synthesis Technology e560 Deflector Shield in phase mode. Drums courtesy of the Mungo g0 with rippling sound effects recorded from the Cwejman S1. Everything clocked and mangled from one single MakeNoise Woggle bug.

Epoch Modular Benjolin - Aleatoric Acid

Epoch Modular Benjolin - Aleatoric Acid from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

Epoch Modular Benjolin - Aleatoric Acid A first patch with this mysterious oscillator. Here is the patch notes: I took the direct outputs from the Benjolin (A, B, XOR, and Rungler) into a Toppobrillo Mixiplexer then took the sum output into a intellijel Mutamixer. The Mixiplexer was being CV animated by the stepped output from a MakeNoise woggle bug. The kick drum was generated from a Cwejman BLD lightly mixed in the background. This was triggered by the Mutable instruments Grids sequencer which took master clock from the Woggle bug clock out. The high hat was nothing more then a white noise output from a SSF Qauntum Rainbow and a tiny snare drum made from the Noise Engineering Ataraxic Translatron running into one MakeNoise Optomix. The cloud like pad sounds in the background come from the Braids Oscillator running in cloud synthesis mode.

TipTop - Trigger Riot - Probability Percussion Patch

TipTop - Trigger Riot - Probability Percussion Patch from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

First experiment using the TipTop Trigger Riot sequencing euro rack module. The patch was setup up running in independent output mode. Each output was set to random valves based on a 32 step sequence. The idea was to create 8 regenerative output channels that would be then sent to the TipTop 808 BD, Snare, high hats, and clap. The outputs all have specific varying degrees of probability selected. Additional triggered voices from the Mutable Instruments Braids (Pads/Cloud Synthesis) and Edges (Noise output) running through the Synthesis Tech mini delay. Drum outputs summed into one intellijel mixer then sent to the MakeNoise Phonogene for light granular processing. This entire patch was sequenced on the Trigger Riot clocking at 198 BPM. Reverb swells courtesy of the Eventide space. tiptopaudio.com/riot.php

First patch with the Mutable Instruments Braids and Grids Modules (Plucked Synthesis)

First patch with the Mutable Instruments Braids and Grids Modules (Plucked Synthesis) from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

First patch experiment using the Mutable Instruments Braids Macro oscillator running in "PLUK" mode. Emulating the sound of raw plucked strings that change with the timbre control via damping, and the color knob changing the plucking position. MakeNoise Rene sending out CV notes to the 1-v/oct input and Gate triggers to the Braids trigger input. The output is then running into the Phonogene for light processing. Liquid drum percussion sequencing by three gate trigger outputs from the Grids module. Trigger one going into the Mungo g0. Trigger two going to the DPO for the lower end kick drum emulation. Final output running lightly through a eventide space pedal.

TR3A - MakeNoise - Mungo g0 - Beat Mutations Patch

TR3A - MakeNoise - Mungo g0 - Beat Mutations Patch from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

Modular patch inspired by Gescom's "TR2A" track off the ISS:SA EP on Skam Records 2013. The patch is being clocked via the MakeNoise Woggle Bug (clocked out) running into the Brain Seed cycle input. Seed and Trigger gate pulses sent to the 4ms SCM. The SCM is running into two MakeNoise Optomix's and Phonogene record CV input function. DPO working as a analog kick drum, and the Mungo g0 is triggering a set of sample based tones that where created in the computer. Maths channels 1 and 4 modulating the linear FM inputs on the DPO. The patch is a experiment trying to create a regenerative sequencer that outputs endless never repeating rhythmic combinations.

Antimatter Audio - Brain Seed - Regenerative Rhythms Patch

Antimatter Audio - Brain Seed - Regenerative Rhythms Patch from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

Antimatter Audio - Brain Seed - Regenerative Rhythms Patch A modified patch/experiment from the Brain Seed Chronicles Page 10 "Funky Rhythm Generation" This patch was a experiment to see how the Brain Seed could be used as an interesting random rhythm generator. The patch was clocked from one intellijel dixie then sent to the seed cycle input. The main analog percussion is being generated by using the "Seed" output going into the 1/volt CV inputs on a MakeNoise DPO, which is then running into one Optomix for fast attacks triggers. There is a second patch cable running into a MakeNoise Brains and two Pressure Points triggering the delay time/offset on a Synthesis Technology E580 Resampling mini-delay (BBD Mode). Feed back clocked/control from the K4815 Pattern Generator. Trigger out from the Brain Seed is running into a 4ms SCM with breakout V2. controlling the strike input on another Optomix making the white noise high-hats courtesy of the Steady State Fate Quantum Rainbow module. The Synthesis Technology E355 dual wavetable LFO output A is running into the shift input, adding in extra variations. One T-Gates output from one of the pressures points running back into the Freeze input. Master mix reverb was the eventide space pedal using the mix knob to wash out the end. :-)

Creating Gestural Sound Effects with the Intellijel Planar Module

Creating Gestural Sound Effects with the Intellijel Planar Module from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

Creating Gestural Sound Effects with the Intellijel Planar Module I setup this patch to work on a sound design project for a client, which needed unique transformer like power ups and electrical like swooshes. I borrowed the patch idea from another fellow sound designer friend Joseph Fraioli who came up with the original patch. I then took that and further added and tweaked a few things to adapt it to this project. The planar X/Y CV out is controlling the pitch of three different sound sources, intellijel cyclebox, and two intellijel Dixies. There is also multiple outs going to three different delay modules, Synthesis Technology E580, MakeNoise Echophon, and Doepfer BBD. This is just a short excerpt from that session of recordings.

MakeNoise - Creature III Patch Outtake

MakeNoise - Creature III Patch Outtake from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

Third patch outtake from the Creature series. This patch was contrived completely using only these MakeNoise modules, Pressure Points, Rene, Optomix, Moddemix, Wooglebug, Maths, DPO (Dual Prismatic Oscillator), Echophon, and Phonogene. The patch was clocked using the Wooglebug as the main tempo, and then sent to 4 different sources. Trills courtesy of the Maths output then triggering sporadically the strike inputs on the Optomix. Rene CV plots the pitch inputs on the DPO and fluttering CV/Gate data to the Phonogene. Woogle stepped out controlling various parameters on Echophon, and Phonogene for extra animation. Reverb splashes by the Eventide Space pedal which was used on the Echophon feedback output and return. One output on pressure points to toggle on and off the freeze function on Echophon for the held feedback effects. This patch was inspired by Morton Subotnick's "Sidewinder." makenoisemusic.com/

Bat Recordings - with the Anabat SD2 - Ultrasonic Echolocation Detector

Bat Recordings - with the Anabat SD2 - Ultrasonic Echolocation Detector Bat field recordings from a recent trip to the North GA mountains. This sound clip was captured using the Anabat SD2 - Bat Detector - high microphone. This device allows you to monitor the ultrasonic echolocation calls of bats for species identification and activity measurement. The particular species of bat in this recording are the Indiana Bat. The typical hearing range of this bat is between 20hz - 150Khz. They locate their prey by means of echolocation. They will produce a very, loud short sound and assess the echo when it bounces back. The type of insect and how big it is can be determined by the quality of the echo and time it takes for the echo to rebound. They also use two frequency types; constant frequency (CF) and frequency modulated (FM) calls that descend in pitch. Each type reveals different information for the bat. The CF is used to detect an object, and the FM is used to provide information regarding the nature of the object and its distance. The pulses of sound produced by the bat last only a few thousandths of a second with silences between the calls that give time to listen for the information coming back in the form of a echo. I was amazed at how complex some of these echolocation patterns looked on a sonogram and was even more blown away by how they sounded. This file was outputted from the Anabat software application which takes the bat calls and converts them to wave files. The Anabat software application also converted the calls to a audible human hearing range (20hz-20khz) as most of the bats calls went up into the 150khz range. http://www.titley-scientific.com/us/index.php/sd2-bat-detector

4ms - PEG Quadratic Beats




Patch using two 4ms Pingable Envelope Generators. This was an experiment to see what rhythmic possibilities are possible using only two PEGs synced to the same LFO clock. This same clock also was controlling one MakeNoise Brains, and two pressure points. The output of the Pressures Points was CV controlling the PEG's divided time divisions making some cool repeating glitchy effects.

MakeNoise Phonogene-Regenerative Record Patch



MakeNoise Phonogene-Regenerative Record Patch

A variation from the Regenerative Record patch from the Phonogene manual. Infinite variations of regenerative slices and cutting on a live looping signal can be heard. The entire patch is running into the summed inputs of a Intellijel Mutagen. I then ran the main output of the Mutagen into the Phonogen, using it more like a stuttering edit plug-in on the master mix. The entire patch is completely modular using no other computers or external processing.

Saturday Modular patch:modDemix-René, Brains,PressurePoints-Slow Acid.



Quick patch test with the modDemix and MakeNoise René sequencer running out to several modules for a slow animated control voltage jam. I started with QCV to 1V/ oct into the Cwejman VM-1 (Acid Slow Bassline). Then sent the X-Gate into the Cwejman CTG-VC envelope and I use Y-Gate for Accent/volume. I used the Doepfer 160,161,4ms RCD, SCD for clock divisions for gates into the rene for half time pattern playback. ModDemix was used in VCA mode with Rene going back and triggering the input for interesting gated time triggering of signals. The distant quantized melody is one voice of the VCO2-RM through the intellijel uScale then through Tiptops Z-5000 with a touch of delay. MakeNoise Brains and Pressure Points running in sequence mode to the Synthesis Technology E350, VCO2-RM, WMD Gamma Wave for extra clustering of timbres. The Cwejman BLD is the kick drum, and Noisering for high hats and snare patterns generated by the intellijel uStep.

Hydrophone Recordings of Dolphins, Shrimp Feeding, and Hypostomus by RichardDevine

This weekend we went to Crystal Waters Florida and recorded various sounds of the marine life. We took a boat out to theses specific locations including Kings Point Bay, Shell Island, and Mouth of Rainbow River. Here we captured some bizarre sounds of Dolphins communicating, thousands of shrimp feeding, and the distant moan of the Hypostomus catfish. (Headphones highly recommended).

Beat Meshing - Octatrack



First session with the Elektron Octatrack. Checking out some of the capabilities of this new machine. No drum loops used in this short jam. Just triggering single shot samples of nord percussion and analogue drum sounds. Using the three stages of LFO's for each track to control effects animation and various other parameters. Making some use of the re-trigger sample functions spanned across 4 patterns.

Intellijel μscale - quantized symmetry



The μscale module is a cv quantizer and musical interval generator. In this simple patch I am using four VCO's. Cwejman VCO-2RM, VM-1,harvestman piston honda, and hertz donut. Everything is being CV sequenced by the output of the μscale. Clocked from one mini ELF LFO to a Doepfer 160, 161 then out to a-151 quad sequential switch controlling the MakeNoise Brains, and two pressure points doing long slow sequences back into the CV and Shift input on the Intellijel μscale. The drums are coming from the cwejman BLD and NS-04 for the white noise snare, and high hats. Effects used TipTop Z5000, Z-DSP, and Doepfer A-187

Note: this patch is completely modular, no drum machines or computers used here:)

Angular Karplus Modular Patch running through the E580



Here is the actual patch that was used for the E580 demo. Everything programmed and patched on the P900 case Tiptop Happy Ending Kit and Cwejman S1. This was a short test with the Synthesis Technology E580 delay at variable different rates. CV attenuated outputs from the Cwejman ATT-4. Using 4 different random control voltage outputs (Cwejman NS-04, D-LFO-both outs, Plan-B Model 24 Heisenberg Generator), to animate the delay, feedback, mix and offset.

This patch is completely all modular no drum machines or computers used here. :)

Devine Gesture Variations for the "Stutter Edit" plug-in by iZotope.




Going through a couple of my gesture variations for the Stutter Edit plug-in. Using only one instance for this example and processing a single drum loop with no other plug-ins. The gesture effects are triggered by a M-Audio Oxygen-8 MIDI keyboard while changing to different banks in real-time.

Clock Trippin, Poly Rhythm RENÉ




Analogue percussion performance patch experimenting with tripping the clock input to get different polyrhythms on the MakeNoise René. The MakeNoise Brains, K4815 Pattern Generator, Z8000, 4ms RCD, SCM and Pressure points are also being clocked with René from a single LFO.

Note: This patch was created entirely on the modular (No drum machines or computers used here).

Sound sources for the drums. One noise source from the Cwejman S1 mkII to make the long clap percussion sounds. Kickdrum made on the Cwejman BLD, and snare drum made from the Synthesis Technology E350. High hats courtesy of the Malekko NoiseRing.
