Welcome to the soundset for a semi-modular synth Moog Mother 32.
«Probability» is a collection of 20 generative patches. This genre of sound design is very popular inside modular culture, and Mother-32 suggests a good set of features to enter this club.
Controlled chaos and randomness, probability, non-repetitiveness, tempo break, pattern uniqueness, short and long sounds alternation, unexpected changes, silence and density, harmonic and fx-like tones, freaky splashes during a sequence – all these things are included in the soundset.
Generative timbre may be a good addition to (or a lead part of) ambient or techno tracks, jams and performances. You may also record fragments into your DAW or sampler, slice it to one-shots or make loops – you’ll get a unique material for further processing.
All patches require a sequence playback, and, obviously, the sequence itself influences on the final result greatly. Unfortunately, there’s no opportunity to export the patterns from Mother-32 to share them with you so that you could get exactly the same result as in my examples. However, I guess, there’s no strong need for it, as even a simple sequence can be transformed into a complex one thanks to the patching. You may pre-program patterns, or you probably already have some stored on your synth.
My general recommendation about the patterns is the following (and I used it in my examples): don’t activate too many steps, 2-3 inside an 8-steps group is enough, use maximum possible steps (32) for greater randomness, minimum steps – for a more predictable result, use wide range of notes, decorate your pattern with accents, glides, different gate lengths, ratchets, try different playback direction. In some cases, I give specific requirements to the pattern in Notes under the picture. And, of course, you may break these rules and try your own approach.
You need up to 10 patch cords to recreate the patches.
