I’ve had a Yarns for a couple years now and there’s been a few things I would love, though I don’t know if it’s possible or if it’s what MI intends for Yarns to be. Here goes anyway:
Random Melodies: The sequencer is great, however, it would be quite nice to select a Root and a corresponding scale and then have Yarns choose one of the notes randomly, much like the Disting Q Shift Register.
Similarly, an alternative function of the step sequencer: Choose your notes and instead of it playing then in order, they are “held” and the arpeggiator uses the “chord” to create a arp pattern from the sequence.
Random Clock: Being able to choose something like “RD” if you scroll down past “EX” in the TEmpo section and it would shoot out random gates/triggers. Maybe only in the 4T mode?
Envelope Generation: When using a keyboard, it would be a great option to have, for example in 1M mode, either the Gate or Trigger output be an envelope. When paired with Tides you could have a nice 2 module voice.
Modulation Source: A template that would turn Yarns into an 8-output LFO with all the parameters (att., scale, shape, uni/bi polar) necessary and would be divisions/multiples of the clock. Very nice with the slower clock divisions suggestion.
I started super small with Yarns being one of the first modules I got, so all this comes from a person who would love to have had these options available in a small case without buying new modules (read: I’m cheap [; ). Also, even though I am posting this right now, I had these thoughts before Pam’s New Workout became available and I am fully aware that a few of these suggestions are implemented in that particular module.
