Nice. Do you have reason file of this (with all the live tweaks like in the video)? I'm hearing a melody in my head over this progression I'd like to try out.
Only if you want to share it of course. :puf_smile:

Thanks. I'll play around with it and see where it takes me.

I see you found Mrs. Gillet’s hidden choir oscillator.
She told me in 2018, when I asked her about the rumored hidden “C” features (chorale fonctionnalités), that she was told by the local modular community in no uncertain terms, “that a chorale engine would be viewed as too ‘heureux’ and grounds for a boycottage.”
Seriously I am glad you were able to turn my humble little motif, into something so joyous, during some incredibly hard times.

Thanks. I've had both Jiggery Pokerys JPS Harmonic Synth and Champagne SuperNova Synth for quite some time, but I haven't used them nearly enough. Figured it was time to revisit them with this track. They both have some nice sonic qualities for sure. The only downside to the JPS Harmonic Synth is that it can be pretty damn heavy on the DSP meter.
I might extend my Teflon Island track, at least a little bit, maybe add another melody or something. We'll see. But if I do I'll take my time and not rush the process.

Anyway I won't deviate from this threads topic anymore, which is Macro. Sorry folks.

Well I would hate to upset or disappoint Bradley of course. But I wouldn't dare to make him any promises I can't keep. We'll just have to wait and see if I participate in this "Challenge of a lifetime". :lol:

Thank you for this amazing gift!

Quick question - how can I automate the LPG/ENV switch? It's greyed out when right-clicking and I can't seem to find it in the combinator either?
Thank you

I'm working on programming a Combinator patch for a pair of Macros in the Combi, when I ran across this as I was assigning parameters to the knobs. Any chance these parameters be renamed so as to avoid confusion? I would think it should be:

Vel To Amplitude
Vel To Generator B
Vel To Generator C
ENV To Generator A
ENV To Generator B
ENV To Generator C
MW/PB To Generator A

Also not in the parameter list, unless I'm missing it: LPG/ENV switch

Not to diss Tritone´s track, I simply very much prefer your original. It´s the quirky magicness making it unique beyond the progression. So much to discover. It´s where the modular character shines through.

I think what draws tritone to music creation is composition and I am driven more by real time timbral manipulation.
So I think his more refined music makes for some perfect samples, I can throw back into the real time manipulation scheme.
My vote is for Clouds next.

Yes, I know what you are saying, then I like combining both worlds most :-)

Got Clouds in a modular, very pleasant device. Been the main effect here: https://hearthis.at/moofi/frozen-clouds/

Very well done :clap: :thumbs_up: Got some pretty pleasant textures out of it. Like the title aswell :-D Only thing I´m wondering, why only 3 1/2 minutes? :-D

In case you would like to mangle or whatsoever additional "tracks", similar, yet different and haven´t heard them yet:

https://hearthis.at/moofi/noctum/

Aswell a "light"-track done with clouds potentially soothing Bradley (consisting of several recordings overlapping and layered):

https://hearthis.at/moofi/flownthrough-clouds/

An additional one for Bradley, though no Clouds involved:

Haha, challenge accepted. Currently working, so I won´t really find time till the weekend. Then I´ll happily wiggle Macro :-)

And yes, I even bought a freebie instead of trialing it :-D

Here is the initial testdrive from when it was being released. Nothing experimental soundwise, simply an ambient melody dabbling along:

Btw if you and Bradley like you could join the Discord server for deeper collaboration explorations :-D

Meanwhile in BRAIDS-land using its formant + vowel mode, haven´t got its succesor Plates (Macro) as a modul:

P.S.: Caution, Bradley could be a little scared.

Yeah I would say that's pretty accurate. Definitely look more at how each sound contributes in the context of things, rather than trying to make each sound super interesting. I guess that reflects in the way I make patches too. And that's probably why I typically don't like to use the too big sounding and overly complicated patches myself.

Hearing Bradley bringing up the topics of thread derailment and the Macro challenge again, I just remembered I actually did a Macro track some time around when I was playing with the Gforce stuff. I don't know if you heard it. It was up for a while, but I took it down after some time. Not sure how I feel about it, but for Bradleys sake I'll upload it temporarily. Better late then never right?

Here you go Bradley. This one's for you. My contribution to the Macro challenge.
