As my system has grown I’ve started to consider whether I should leave certain elements pre-patched, or if that will entrench habits a bit too much. Does anyone do this?
In some situations I’ve felt like it might just mean there’s a more suitable module out there - for instance I almost always want some smooth random fluctuating CV, and before I had Sapel or Marbles I was constantly setting up slowly clocked slewed S&H’s.
Currently I use PNW as master clock fairly often and was thinking of leaving channel 8 as 16th note triggers multed to my other sequencers. I have a couple other thoughts about things like this that I could set up semi-permanently and it’s hard for me to tell how much of this would be a move towards making a more personalized instrument vs somewhat locking in my mindset while patching.
Curious of anyone’s experience with this!
