Beads and bells

My latest discovery: that FM bell tones sound great when fed through Mutable Instruments’ Beads. In this video, I use a couple of FM voices, which Beads shifts up one or two octaves, depending on whether Pamela’s New Workout sends 1.0 or 2.0 V to pitch input (remember to turn pitch attenurandomizer to fully CW!). Various cv sources modulate the dry/wet mix (bringing treble bells in and out) and the time, density, and envelope of the grains. An irregular clock goes to seed input to further vary the density of grains.
More details in the youtube notes.
