Maybe its the temperature but i cant create a comprehensive tool to keep within a scale that spontaneously forms itself while noodling and then quantize subsequent sequences within those values. Wondering how you deal with it and hoping that typing it out might add some structure to my thoughts.
What usually happens is a sequence is generated by whatever means, but lets keep it simple and say there are finite amount of steps - like 8 - and each step has a specific value. Some of them might be similar, some might be microtonal.
The lazy dream is that I can record all of those values and lay them into a quantizer - so any incoming signals will then be shifted up or down to their closest value. So if I had 8 steps with 8 values, the quantizer could be set to 8 values and then arrange the values into the 8 note scale and even communicate that even though I had 8 steps with 8 values, only 5 of them are unique.
I am noodling around in VCV with it, but any tool suggestions are appreciated.
I haven’t refreshed memory on what midi tools do thism but maybe thats a start.
Marbles has a cool cv record feature and I was wondering if this was already visited many times in modular - something that accumulates different values and lets you use them as a scale for something like a controller input.
