Alright. Maybe a stupid idea, but what about an alternative firmware for Ansible in the Turing Machine vein?
I was reading into alternative firmwares for the Eurorack modules, and came to the conclusion making such an app is really out of my league, but I hope some of you smart people get inspired
I’m aware of the possibilities of TT, and really tried, but it didn’t click with me, I guess…
And I’m out of HP and money
There are already a lot of modules supporting Turing algorithms as either a primary or secondary function. That being said, I think the appeal of the Turing Machine is the immediate ability to create a random melody and inject randomness at will. I wonder if it may be more appropriate to take an existing app like Kria and request a randomize button for each group/page: randomize triggers, randomize pitch, randomize gate, randomize accent, even randomize scale. To make it more Turing flavored you could even set a degree of randomness or probability of change. This would be a step further from a probability that a note/trigger is fired. Just an idea and one that I would support
Yeah, a randomizer voor Kria would be cool also. I find myself “manually” randomizing Kria’s pages now and then. Punching in random values sometimes leads to fun sequences.
And yes, another option would be buying a Turing capable module, but already having an Ansible in my rack, it being open source and all, thought maybe more of you guys would like the idea
Moved this thread to development, also giving it a bump as I’d love to see someone jump into more alt-firmware for Whitewhale and Meadowphysics. Since both of these modules have been incorporated into Ansible in some way or form, there’s a bunch of WW / MP’s on the second hand market for pretty cheap. Seems like a great opportunity for someone to jump into the alt-firmware world.
