We all get stuck, take this thread right here: Dealing with creative blocks; when things aren't working
I really adore Peter Schmidt and Brian Eno’s Oblique strategies. https://www.enoshop.co.uk/product/oblique-strategies.html
This got me to thinking, What if we had a thread here, in the spirit of the GAS haiku thread, with some direct and specific simple things to try with your modular system that might shake up your workflow. I think these could double as interesting or quick tricks that have produced productive results for you.
Here’s some guidelines to start:
Try to keep it somewhat generic and apply across a broad range or type of modules which might apply to many folk’s systems.
Or keep it related to a specific module.
Here’s a few ideas to get the ball rolling…
- Modulate a VCA with CV running through it
- Use a LFO and inverse of that LFO to modulate 2 VCA’s to create stereo phase effect (for audio or CV!).
- Use an envelope into Rings structure CV triggered in tandem with a strum trigger
