Phermae is my attempt at recreating the beloved Chase Bliss Thermae.
-Corrects some level and bypass output issues present in the original patch.
-The patch will always load Zoia in an engaged state, with Stomp Aux control engaged. The patch itself is also engaged (lower left green indicator-green).
-To see your current tapped BPM, tap the  button. Pressing has no other function. (Master clock: upper right of page 8.)
The Front Panel follows the layout of the Thermae itself with Mix, Low Pass Filter, Regeneration, Glide, and Interval knobs in their usual place.
The Interval knobs function like the pedal as well, with no pitch change at center (0.5 white), and stepping down to the left and up to the right.
Intervals are a 4th, a 5th, an octave, an octave plus a 5th, and 2 octaves, denoted by a colored pixel just to the right of each knob. Below these indicators are buttons to disable each Interval knob and ramp through the Interval range based on the master clock.
The Glide knob sets the rate of ramping between the intervals, with zero being instantaneous. Glide is most noticable above 0.4. (If set too long relative to the tempo, the intervals may not be reached before ramping back again.)
Left- is a global tap tempo, indicated by a red pixel at the lower left. Hold this footswitch to latch a “freeze mode” on incoming signal, indicated by brighter blue pixels around tempo indicators.
Right- is the global bypass, indicated by a green pixel at the lower right when engaged.
Middle- is the preset switch. Hold to store the current settings of all knobs on the Front Panel (does not store tap divisions). Pixels will flash along the right side to confirm preset storage. Tap this switch to change from current knob settings to previously stored preset settings. The green “engage” pixel will turn pink to indicate preset mode. Stored preset settings will be maintained with the patch if you save before powering down.
Next to the red tempo indicator pixel is a UI button that will cycle through 4 tap divisions.
Red=quarter notes (as tapped)
The Orange knobs along the bottom are modulation Speed and Depth controls.
On the Granular Page are two pink value modules connected to the granular’s Density and Texture inputs. I considered placing these on the Front Panel, but decided it was too busy already. Tinkering here yields some interesting results.
Hope you enjoy! Feedback is always welcome.
