Patch Notes in the description! Our musical exploration of the Analog Shift Register function in Copier Maschine mode in the marvelous Ornament & Crime DIY Eurorack module.

The Analog Shift Register sequences are being triggered by Make Noise Tempi into the Tr1 input on Ornament & Crime. A channel of Make Noise Maths acts as the S&H CV source routed through the external influence input on the Wogglebug, then out of the stepped random output into the CV1 input on the O&C. Channel A of the O&C is routed to the Sputnik Oscillator, B to the Malekko Anti-Oscillator, C to Mutable Braids, D to the Tiptop Z3000.

All of the oscillators are in tune, each sending a triangle wave out to the Malekko Mix4, which is routed up to Mutable Ripples filter. Out from the LP4 output on Ripples into a channel on the Make Noise Optomix low pass gate. The filter cutoff on Ripples is modulated by the cycling channel 1 on Maths, which in turn is being modulated by the smooth random output from the Wogglebug.

Another channel from Tempi is used to trigger the Intellijel Dual ADSR, which is modulating the Optomix channel in time with the sequence shifting. Channel C on the Malekko Varigate is routed to retrigger the envelope to add some randomized polyrhythmic action to the chords.

The bass is coming from the Make Noise DPO, receiving a 12 step sequence from the Korg SQ-1 which is being clocked from Tempi. The Final output is routed through the Make Noise MMG filter in low pass mode, and on to another channel on the Optomix, which is being modulated by an envelope on the Malekko ADLFO (triggered by the SQ1 sequence).

A channel from Pressure Points is routed to the external FM in on the main channel on the DPO, with the four steps tuned to harmonically modulate the sequence when that touchplate is triggered.

The kick is coming from the Malekko Dual Borg/Envelator combo, the snare from the Noise Engineering Basimilus Iteritas, and the hihat from the Scooper, both drums routed through the Scooper inputs and out along with the hihat sound. Each pattern is programmed and triggered from the Varigate, which is being clocked and reset by Tempi.

The mix output from the Optomix is routed through the delay in Mutable Warps Parasite firmware.


Voltage Control Lab is the first school dedicated to Modular Synthesis, offering online courses and private instruction in Hardware and Software Synthesis and Sound Design. We are currently enrolling Modular 101: Intro to Eurorack for newer modular adventurers, as well as more advanced courses like Sound Design 101 and The Many Faces of Maths for more experienced sound spelunkers.
