Generative Ambient Vocal Drones with Mellifluous Tones and Claves

Generative in that you press a button to start the process of synthesizing sounds, a process that could go on forever . . .

Ambient in that you meld with the music into the background . . .

    Beautiful Robin, how do you activate the sound? I also like to use with my sequencer and enjoy the flight :)

    I am glad you enjoyed the snippet. The patch can run for hours . . .

    The envelopes for all voices are triggered randomly. Each voice has an LFO clock. When it triggers an envelope, it also triggers a sample & hold which randomly sets the delay time for the next trigger (by controlling the frequency of the LFO (v/oct)).

    The Flow buttons simply allow the triggers to pass through (the voice starts playing) or not (the voice stops; no further envelopes are triggered).

    Not only is the timing of events aleatoric, but the selection of pitches from the sets of pitches allowed by the quantizers is random.
