With Harmonic Geometry, Richard Devine explores our string modeling synthesizer in all its facets. In his distinctive style, he brings us elaborate timbral perspectives and intricate textural spaces using the many shapes and forms of String Studio VS-2. These ingenious constructions materialize into an eclectic collection of sounds spanning modern sci-fi territories, ambiences, surprising percussions, resonant vibrational effects, and exotic instruments. Harmonic Geometry comprises 130 presets divided into eight categories: Pad, Effect, Arpeggiator, Plucked, Synth, Keys, Percussion, and Ambient.
a patch focused around using modulated trigger delays via the steady state fate propagate module.
the main trigger sources are coming from the deplhtronics triggerman and 4MS RCD, the outputs are fed into the SSF propagate where the delay input on each channel is then modulated by the modcan quad LFO with different synced waveforms.

This summer has been busy but managed to find a some moments to piece together this patch. Overall the patch is 6 channels with some sub mixing.
Channels 1 & 2 – Harvestman Piston Honda MKII > Tip Top Audio ZDSP running Valhalla Shimmer DSP chip.
Channel 3 – Tip Top Audio BD808 + RS808 + HATS808
Channel 4 – Cwejman VM-1 + Synth Tech E350 + > Make Noise Optomixes
Channel 5 – Mutable Instruments Braids + WMD Gamma Wave + Tip Top Audio Z3000 > Make Noise QMMG
Channel 6 – Blue Lantern Asteroid BD
Sequencing was performed on Mutable Instruments’ Grids, Tip Top Audio Z8000, Harvestman Stillson Hammer, 4ms RCD/SCM, Doepfer A155/154.
Last track of my live modular set at Tokyo Modular Festival 2014. Mesmerizing laser visuals by BR-Laser. The module used is a creation from BR laser, and makes a laser projector work in the fashion of an analog oscilloscope in X/Y mode. The signal flow from the interface module to the laser is fully analogue, because of this the visuals are extremely responsive, and the module can connect to RGB laser projectors.
Twisted Tools and Soundmorph again make a no brainer sample pack at a great price.
DARKMORPH delivers drums, impacts, bass morphs, passbys, ambience, user interface and robotic sounds, derived from both field recordings and designed sounds. The package is made up of over 2.9GB of 24bit/96kHz metadata enriched WAV files, along with the MP16e sampler for Reaktor and presets kits for MASCHINE, ABLETON, EXS24, BATTERY, KONTAKT and REAKTOR.
DARKMORPH was hand-crafted for Twisted Tools by Jason Cushing and Yan David of SoundMorph and is available exclusively at the Twisted Tools shop for just $69.
• Over 2.9 Gigabytes of sound effects and designed sounds
• 24bit/96khz wavs
• Soundminer enriched metadata
• Files can be used with almost any media software application or DAW
• Maschine ready metadata
• Sampler instrument presets for Maschine, Ableton Live 9, Battery, EXS24, Kontakt, Maschine and Reaktor
• A brand new version of Twisted Tools’ MP16 sampler, called the MP16e
A patch built around the new Grayscale Algorhythm and Binary modules.
Main clock source for this patch is the Livewire Chaos Computer. The gate out is feeding the left most Algorhythm module, which is in random mode. The top row of outs is going into the left Binary module in OR mode. The output of the Binary is then triggering the Tip Top BD808 kick drum that is then fed into the Modcan Dual Delay.
The same Chaos Computer clock source is multed to the right Algorhythm with the same process applied to the Binary. The Binary output here is triggering the Mutable Instruments Braids in Meta mode. The output of Braids is multed into a mixer as well as a VCA. By manually triggering the a pressure points pressure output, the signal is sent to the Qu-Bit Electronix RT60 for reverb throws.
The main clock source is then multed into the 4ms shuffling clock multiplier and outputted to the Cylonix Shapeshifter via the x 2 output though a channel of the Make Noise Maths v2. A synced LFO from the Modcan Quad LFO is triggering the cycle input as well as another sine LFO is modulating the fall time.
The center Algorhythm is in seq mode and clocked by a divided by 8 of the original clock source via the 4ms Rotating Clock Divider. The eight outputs are triggering eight tuned vocal samples on the Qu-Bit Electronix Nebulae in one-shot mode. The Nebulae output is then run through the Serge Resonant EQ and the Tiptop Audio Z-DSP with the Halls Of Valhalla reverb card.
The Make Noise Wogglebug, DPO, Maths and MMG provide acidy baseline.
The outputs of the Shapeshifter and DPO are put through the WMD Sequential Switch Matrix to use as a simple mute system for performance.
At around 3:17 I got a call from my cat food delivery guy.
No computers or editing were used in the making of this performance.
