here is the combined daemon + rhythmicon scene: daemonrhythm.txt (2.0 KB)
i’ve made some modifications to @ghost’s daemon, there are now 6 rows for chords and all 6 voices are supported. the bottom row is the rhythmicon part, if you press any button here it’ll play whatever is in that column with the frequency determined by the column number (in ratios to the main clock the rightmost column is 16/16, moving to the left 15/16, 14/16 etc - i have to correct myself in that it doesn’t actually work as the original rhythmicon which used 1/2, 1/3 etc - it’s difficult to implement this on teletype). the fun part is that the sequencer and the rhythmicon can be played either at the same time or separately.
alternatively instead of using rhythmicon you can switch the bottom row to work as transposition. this is controlled by the rightmost button in row 7 (next to the chord edit button). i had to reduce the total number of chords to 8 in order to accommodate the new controls.
since this scene uses just type there was no need to use CV and trigger outputs, so instead i used them for:
- trigger 1 outputs sequencer clock
- trigger 2 outputs sequencer reset
- trigger 3 flips on sequencer reset
- CV 1 goes from 0 to 5V following the current sequencer step
- CV 2 generates a new random value between 0 and 5V on each sequencer reset
- CV 3 generates a random voltage whenever the bottom row is pressed
- CV 4 generates 0…5V voltage proportional to the button pressed in the bottom row
here is a quick demo:
and now i have to work on another programming assignment for an interview. implementing a grocery store cash register
