WMD DPLR delay… a preview of its capabilities

Been using mine non-stop. Beautiful sounding delay and deep for such a small module.

This is a short demo of what can be done with the DPLR, and what happens when you crank up the REGEN. This is mono input with a stereo delay with feedback between channels, as can be heard.
You can get many tones with the feedback type button at the top, shown near the end.

patch basics:
sequencers used are the tiptop audio circadian rhythms (CR), z8000, modcan touch sequencer (TS), intellijel metropolis and 2x make noise pressure points with brains.
CHORDS: make noise tELEHARMONIC sequenced by the CR and two pressure points. processed through the tiptop audio ZDSP reverb.
LEAD MELODY: intellijel atlantis sequenced by the intellijel metropolis and processed through the qu-bit electronic RT60 reverb.
KICK: blue lantern asteroid BDv4 sequenced by the CR.
SNARE: noise engineering BI triggered by the CR and processed through the make noise erbe verb and synthesis technology e580 delay.
HAT: SSF quantum rainbow MKII purple noise with maths expo envelope sequenced by the CR.
SUB KICK: tiptop audio BD808 triggered by the CR.
MID SECTION PERCUSSION: mutable instruments elements sequenced by the CR and Z8000.
MID SECTION TO END HARMONY: modcan triple osc through the modcan multimode filter sequenced by the modcan TS and processed through mutable instruments clouds.
my brother says:
“Sounds like some kind of scale in the key of F minor. the chords are Bo dominant 7th first inversion followed by Dd major first inversion, Ab major then another Ab major an octave higher.”

Harmonic Symmetry

Harmonic Symmetry from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

Harmonic patch using the new MakeNoise tELHARMONIC is a Multi-Voice, Multi-Algorithm synthesizer, and 4ms Spectral Multiband Resonator. The master clock is the Tiptop Circadian Rhythms. Clock output running into the Modcan Touch Sequencer. Channel output one running into one intellijel Dixie (V1) for the bassline. Dixie output running into a Mutable instruments Ripples filter (LP4), triangle waveform. Second channel output sequencing quantized 8 note sequence to the telharmonic oscillator, creating the first lead sequence in the patch (major scale set). One Mult output taken and sent to the Strymon BigSky reverb (chorale mode) to create the delicate swarm pads that rise in and out at the builds. Amplitude control of the slow rises via the intellijel HexVCA, slow rate control from one Modcan Quad LFO. The other output is then taken and sent to the Qu-bit RT-60 reverb. Third output from the Modcan TS sending quantized CV to the MakeNoise STO oscillator variable SHAPE output then sent through lower section of the MakeNoise Optomix. The forth output from the Modcan TS is sending a 4 chord pattern (min9) to the intellijel shapeshifter module in chord mode. This output is then sent to another Qu-Bit RT-60 reverb algorithm. MakeNoise Mysteron plucking guitar like effect being triggered by a 4ms RCD, 5th trigger out. The Mysterson then is running out into a Strymon BlueSky pedal, reverb far right.
Drum sequencing from TipTop CR, channel one kick drum going to the Nord Drum 2. Second channel number 2 triggering a custom snare drum made on the Nord Drum 2. Channel 6 from the CR triggering a low bass drum, in the key of “C”. Clock output from CR into the 4ms SCM being rotated by a intellijel dixie sine wave output running at a slow rate shifting the 16th’s hi hat pattern. Noise source for hi-hats are the SSF quantum rainbow 2, purple output running into the MakeNoise Optomix. The high end snare clap sound is by the Synthrotek’s DS-M drum module, then being lightly processed by the Synthrotek DLY, slowly CV controlled by a Modcan Quad LFO in random mode creating more glitchy effects. This is then being sequenced by channel number 2 from the tiptop CR. The first lower left side 4ms Spectral Multi-band Resonator processing 72 custom DSP samples, which are being played by one addac wave player. The output is then being sent to a intellijel uVCF filter (hi pass), for the light subtle glitch textures. The second 4ms Spectral Multi-band Resonator, processing another set of 32 samples (noise washes/slow rises/falls) via channel number 4 from the CR tiptop. Main output from a intellijel Mutagen mixer then ran through the Eventide space pedal for extra spatial atmosphere. :-)

Tip Top Audio – Circadian Rhythms – Random & Chaos

One of my favorite starting points on one of my favorite sequencers.

The Circadian Rhythms is moving modular synthesizer technology another step forward by gluing all the pieces of a system together. Each module or voice can now be programmed to play straight from an intelligent, eight-channel, 512-step master trigger sequencer made for composers looking to make music on the modular. Building on the sequencing concept of step programing multi-channel patterns of musical phrases can be repeated, looped, chained, muted and manipulated on the fly in real-time, and most importantly, all of this is done through a simple, clearly labeled interface. Using an array of multicolor illuminated buttons and innovative grid views provides a highly functional live performance sequencer with a beautiful glowing appearance of the programmed music that will look amazing on stage for both performer and crowd. As a master controller, the heart of the modular synthesizer, Circadian Rhythms generates high precision clock and reset signals for all the other sequencers and devices in the system to align with and can also act as a high precision bridge for DAW synchronization.
Views – Unlike most hardware sequencers that have a single static display of a timeline, Circadian Rhythms offers four different horizontal views of the timeline and two unique vertical views that scale from macro to micro. Switch between viewing 64 steps at once or all 8 channels side by side instantly. Stretch gates over multiple patterns to drive envelopes or use Zoom view to move a single hit back a few milliseconds in time to get the right feel all from the same interface.
LED Grid Built for Quick Access – Built around 72 buttons set as a multi-color illuminated 8×9 array, Circadian Rhythms displays both note data and settings in a clear and precise manner. It takes only one click to switch to vertical view and the grid turns into a set of programming and realtime playing functions like Mutes, Loops, Swing, Fills, Copy and Pate, Grouping, Randomizing, Manual trigger entry drum machine style and many many more. Activate any of those functions with only a button press or two.

Workspace & Environment

Pretty much all of them.
