There is still a lot of mystery for me in this box too. Even after a lot of play and recording etc. The buttons do seem to program or just allow new data into the shift regs. I’d have to look closer to see how this happens and from where.
I have avoided digging too deep or asking a lot of questions myself because the mystery is so much fun !
I really like a good ear puzzle.
The only tips I can offer right now are:
Holding down the Red Button on either section will cause the reg to fill and will make a constant repeat until you let go. I’ve noticed that a press of the Black afterwards will do some interesting / subtle things as well.
Pulling CV off either section in any area is a nice way to clock other instruments. These are all positive voltages and have been fun to use to clock external osc etc. I’ve been syncing the clocks to other rudimentary sequencers too. Also fun.
Part of the mystery in this approach to sequencing comes from the extremely basic design of the sequencers themselves. Sometimes really basic things are hard to analyze even when you “know” what’s going on.
I love the Lore-Mill Double Knot. I can’t wait for the next box to come out. I could easily see several of these in my setup as regular folks.
