Hi! I’m using a René as the main sequencer for my modular and I was looking for another sequencing option to combine two voices. After much time reading and searching for alternatives didn’t find anything that fits my needs and I thought: What about TWO Renés?

Has anyone tried something similar?

Yes, I know that René 2 can sequence three voices, but I prefer to avoid menu/page diving.


#1501

I’ve actually been thinking about that a lot lately!

‘been using a Make Noise Shared System now for half a year and absolutely love René. I constantly fantasize about how powerful 2 would be but at the same time worry it could be overwhelming.

I’m trying to build my second case now and want to go the grid route and explore a new mode of composition but it seems Ansible is impossible to find :frowning:


#1502

Just re read this, soooo you currently have a René V1 and can’t be bothered by V2?


#1503

Two Renes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8JsTydQojQ


#1504

Yes, I currently have a René v1, and I’m thinking about getting another one.


#1505

LOVE the track! Would you mind sharing some insight on how you patched them together?


#1506

Well if you go for another V1, they’re pretty easy to find cheap on the used market now but I wouldn’t be too scared of the new Renè!

The menus really aren’t that bad unless you want to get into crazy sequencing of the Z-axis. I spent a lot of time with the V1 before switching and much prefer the V2 (especially for changing chords within a patch) but there are things I miss about V1. The sample and hold settings on V2 are insane :love_letter:


#1507

Honestly, I didn’t keep patch notes, but I’m pretty sure it’s very simple, they are both just sharing divisions of a master clock, both playing Modcan FMVDOs and Echoes from Pitch Factor.


#1508

Well thanks for the lovely patch and little details!

Appreciate it


#1509

I was kind of on the fence of going from the Rene V1 to the V2, too, but I’m really glad I did. It’s amazing, and not difficult to use. The Z-axis thing is not at all bad, too, and is really powerful because it allows you to sequence pretty much anything: scales, gate patterns, whatever.

Hi guys,
someone can help me to fill my rack? I have 6hp free space

feel free to suggest to me some creative ideas like selling some modules to fit the 6hp gap with 8-10hp

thanks to all


#1511

Do an inspiring painting and screw it in to fill the gap :slight_smile:

Alternatively - what does this system not do that you would like it to do?


#1512

sincerly I do not know what to add, I was thinking about some utilities like the wmd toolbox because I hate this hole


#1513

How about a Antimatter Crossfold?


#1514

Sequential switch (A-151-2 is 4 hp) and a 2hp Burst?


#1515

How about reshuffling your rack to allow each of your 2hp modules to have a 1hp blank either side of them?


#1516

Help a (diy) novice out… I was donated this power strip, what kind of psu & switch I can use with it? Where to purchase in Europe ?


#1517

At precisely 6hp I’ve not got much: only Beast’s Chalkboard and Shifty I think, but really like both.

As you appear to be rocking a René 1.0, either of these modules would help you get more mileage from a single quantized sequence. :slight_smile:


#1518

MI Shades are as handy to me as Maths. Especially next to an Ornament & Crime


#1519

Is there more to it? I can’t tell if we are missing anything relevant in the picture, as different bus boards use different power input methods.

Though, since it appears to be a passive bus board, I wouldn’t necessarily make any decisions based on it - they’re often cheap! You’re better off deciding on what modules and case you want to start with and decide on power from there.
