Looping 16-step Euclidean Rhythm machine with an 8-voice sample player.
A Euclidean Rhythm is an even division of beats within a measure, or as close to even as possible. This is a simple but powerful musical idea, especially when there are many ‘voices’ playing a rhythm.
Keys play samples. View the rhythm graphically or through the text-based parameter display. Send the rhythm out as MIDI notes and/or control it with an external MIDI device. It is Ableton Link enabled for wireless tempo sync (WiFi adapter needed). Replace the samples to customize the patch sound!
Knob1: Tempo Control
Knob2: Sets the density of the rhythm from 1-16 beats (AKA sample triggers).
Knob3: Shifts the rhythm relative to the measure's start.
Knob4 controls the samples' decay.
Aux and Foot Swtich: Controls latch and sequencer.
This patch builds on the work of Godfried Toussaint, Stutter, and, of course, Euclid. For more information, please visit: http://cgm.cs.mcgill.ca/~godfried/publications/banff.pdf & https://forum.pdpatchrepo.info/user/stutter
