Anyone have a CVPal with X0XPal firmware, and an X0X Heart module?
I’ve been tinkering with an idea for a dedicated acid bassline sequencer, that may end up as a Eurorack module and/or a Max4Live MIDI effect.
The plan is eventually to feed the thing with 25 carefully-selected 303 basslines, arranged in a 5x5 grid, which can be blended and transformed in various ways, inspired by MI Grids (and using some chunks of Oliviers code).
Currently, it has a library of 25 randomly-generated patterns. I’ve yet to try it with the X0XPal and X0X Heart, but it’s already sounding cool, just with the Apple DLS Synth.
I’m going to add a couple more features, then upload to Github, and put up a webpage for testing, soooo… I was wondering if anyone might be interested in doing some beta-testing of the basic functionality, in the nearish future.
Drop me a message if you’re interested in testing it.
You don’t necessarily need an X0XPal and X0X Heart. Any subtractive synthesis-style MIDI synth that has mono legato mode, and can map velocity to one or several of the following parameters would also produce cool basslines: filter cutoff frequency/filter env. amount/filter env. decay. A Shruthi-1 or Ambika would probably work great, though obviously won’t have that authentic 303 sound.
Once I’ve verified the concept with my JS model, I’ll think about making it into something more useful.
