Little Melody driven generative duophonic self playing patch

In this video I’m exploring the generative power of Little Melody. I was inspired by reading an article about Joe Zawinul, he used to take the keyboard CV of his ARP 2600 and invert it through the voltage processor (on which Process 26 is based). He’d send then send the normal CV to one VCO and the inverted CV to the second VCO.

In that spirit, I have taken the output of Little Melody to a multiple, and then directly to the 1V/oct inputs of 2 x XVCO. I have then patched the multiple into Process 26, inverted it and offset it, and patched the output into the CV input of Klang Stadt. In this way, Little Melody is creating it’s own counterpoint.

Voice #1: 2 x XVCO, XVCF, More VCAs, System X Envelope, and using an inverted triangle from Chronograf to open and close the VCA.

Voice #2: Klang Stadt main output, More VCAs, CEMvelope. CEMvelope’s inverted output is being used for wavetable transitions.

Chronograf is the master clock, driving Little Melody as well as the ADSRs. Both voices are processed through their own Stasis Leak for deep, long reverb.
