Got a Qu-bit Chord module recently and had the idea of trying to get some strumming/arpeggio like patterns out of it. I’m running the 4 voice outputs into a quad VCA with the 4 outputs of Tides controlling the VCA channel amplitudes.
Thought Tides would be a perfect partner for this as I’m always using the “Different Time” / Phase Shift mode when in LFO, and it is nice in that mode for some droning patterns. But after a bit of patching and rereading the manual I’d forgotten that the envelope mode functions different to LFO mode, controlling the slope of each output rather than the phase. So I’m finding it’s not possible to get strumming or arpeggio patterns, at least not in the way I imagined.
I’m wondering if anyone has any tips for getting this behaviour out of tides (mb somehow holding the LFO and resetting it), if anyone knows of any firmware versions that do this?
Ideally I’d like to have Tides in AD or AR mode, set it to Different Times mode, then when sending a gate to the Trig input envelopes would be triggered out of phase, or effectively delayed, from each other. And you could use the Shift/Level dial to alter the phase/delay. Similar to behaviour LFO mode the dial at 12 o’clock would trigger all at the same time, shifting the dial left or right would alter the phase/delay until it reaches it’s most extreme at either end of the dial range.
Or if anyone has a bit more experience with this, would this be something achievable by an amateur coder like myself?
