“Techno Patterns” is a collection of 64 Presets+Sequences for Moog Subsequent 37 and Sub 37.
!!! Not supported by Sub Phatty and Subsequent 25 !!!
Each preset contains a sequence with Pitch, Velocity, and Modulation lanes, up to 64 steps.
The collection also includes the sequences with odd lengths: 5, 7, 9, etc. They create polymetric/polyrhythmic feel, that is quite typical for Techno.
Some presets/sequences are in Duo Mode, they create chord lines.
The pack also includes a folder with all sequences saved separately from the presets. You may use the sequences with any other timbres: choose/make a preset, go to the “Sequencer” tab, and push “Load”.
ModWheel is set in all patches, it adds brightness, changes the tone, or increases the length of notes.
Patches’ volume levels are set close to each other, you won’t get sudden volume spikes or drops while switching the timbres.
You may use the sequences as they are, or take them as a starting point for further editing and tweaking. Try different Rates/Time Divisions, including Triplet and Dots; try changing the length of a sequence from start or/and from end; try shifting the start point; try adding Octaves, try playing with Forward/Backward and Invert modes, or simply change steps’ values: Pitch, Modulation, Modulation destination. Subsequent 37 gives nice performance tools, and you can get plenty of variations just with one sequence.
I recommend syncing the synth to some external beat to get a proper impression of the sequences.
The soundset is suitable for various Techno sub-genres: Melodic, Minimal, Acid, Dub, Berlin, Chicago, Modular, Dark, Deep, Ambient.
Also, the presets can be used in other genres of electronic dance music: House, Trance, Hardcore, EDM, Progressive, Electro, Industrial, and others.
The patches cover a wide range of tones: mild and aggressive, deep and bright, soft and punchy.
The presets are uploaded via official Moog Editor/Librarian.
