Turingmachina v3

*This is Version 3*
in multipage with even more control like clock divider/multiplier, quantised with 15 different scales to choose from and a reverb (audio through) to spice up your Synths.

This shift register MIDI Sequencer produces random notes. These can be completely random, or they can be locked into loops that repeat every 8 steps. It is inspired by the “Turing Machine” from Music Thing Modular which goes back to the long history of shift register circuits.

This is a shift memory sequencer, based around 8 steps.

You cannot program this sequencer to play specific tunes. You cannot save sequences. You can never go back to a sequence that has changed. You only can “steer” it in a certain direction.

    I get errors when I try to launch this patch. Does it work with the new 3.0 OS update? There are a number of “argument out of range” errors as well as a failure to open and read /tmp/patch/knobs.txt.

    Does this just produce MIDI output? Is there a way to get it to generate sounds directly on the Organelle?

  • ringhof on said:

    Yes its Pure Midi-Out – i use it as simple sequencer for my modular and no i did not port it to OS 3.0. I am working on a new version with Midi-Channel selection and other new features and OS 3 support – but still no build in synth.

    Are there others who experience errors with OS 3?

    Checked version 2 on the new OS 3. works fine by me.
