To my mind René and Marbles conflict in a small system. Both generate gates and quantized CVs, but neither assumes it’s the master clock.
René is a sequencer that can generate pseudo-random quantized CV and timing through incoming modulation. Marbles is a random voltage sampler that can sound like a sequencer, but ultimately isn’t…
In other words, one takes a sequence and makes it more random, the other takes random and makes it more sequence.
Both great… But tbh I think René is the more foundational use case.
