This began as a way to explore quadrature phase & but quickly morphed into a small sequencer, loosely based on barycentric motion of celestial objects. Two bodies orbit a central point & two more bodies orbit those. As the orbits cross the horizon a note is triggered. Patterns emerge and change as orbits are changed.
I’ve been really enjoying barycentre, but after an update to the Norns firmware the notes from barycentre are very much shorter, more staccato. Reading through the Lua script it’s not obvious what to tweak to remedy this… Can you give me a clue?
With the internal synth using PolyPerc, the cutoff & release are tied to the inner & outer orbit size. Try larger orbits for more sustained sounds. You can also tweak these values at Line 262 if you would like.
if orb.dirty == 1 and useMidi == 0 then
engine.release(outer.space * 0.005)
engine.cutoff(inner.space * 50)
