Beats by Nebulae

QuBit Nebulae is a eurorack module mostly known for granulizing samples and stretching and pitching them. However, there is also a one shot mode in which you can load multiple samples and individually trigger them from the various cv inputs.

In this patch, I used Nebulae in conjunction with Make Noise Rene and various other clock sources to work as a drum machine.

Rene on the fly

For this patch, I was focusing on the possiblities of using different clock divisions in conjunction with Make Noise Rene’s logic operations to generate varying patterns. Changing them on the fly can be a challenge as the touchpads don’t respond 100%, but in this take it worked out pretty good.

Doepfer 171-2 VCS subharmonic sequence

The Doepfer 171-2 VCS is a super versatile module. One of the most interesting uses for it is to employ it as a subharmonic generator. You really have to tweak for a sweet spot, because it sometimes locks at a subharmonic that is barely in the audible spectrum. Or it wobbles around like mad. But I do like that kind of unpredictability in a module.

Doepfer 171-2 VCS and QuBit Nebulae

This patch is built around a sample of a bird called Cory’s Shearwater. In the winter of 2015, my wife and I were on a holiday on the Island of La Gomera. Each night when we were walking back from the beach to our appartment we’d hear these weird noises coming from the darkness. We had no idea what it was, and it sounded spooky! Sometimes it sounded like cats, sometimes it sounded like babies crying. After we got home, I researched the issue and it turned out it were actually birds making these noises.
