  • The module gets fun when you start feeding it back
  • Using a mult or Stackable, send an output channel both to the audio output and into a sound-modifying module - reverb, delay, filter.
  • Take the output of that module back into an input, and you have a feedback loop, controlled by the Turing Machine patterns.
  • Turn everything up, then scale back to a controllable point.
  • Experiment with the clock speed running the Turing; sometimes it takes a while for feedback to build up, so slow patterns can be more effective.

##Rhythmic FM Feedback

  • Patch 1 x main Turing CV output, 1 x Turing Noise and 2 x oscillators (start with sines) to the inputs
  • Patch the outputs to v/oct inputs on the two oscillators
  • Mult the oscillator outputs to your audio outputs
  • Tune for rhythmic cross-modulating chaos
  • Here's a demo of this patch:

##Stereo Wave Sequencing

  • Put 4 x different waveform outputs from one oscillator into the inputs
  • Send the outputs to Left and Right stereo outputs

##Realtime Williams Mix

  • Find 3 x music or speech or foley audio sources to fill the inputs; real radios, the Radio Music module, Internet Radio stations
  • Patch a delay or spring reverb in feedback mode (as above) into the final input, then experiment with clock speed.
  • The vanilla version might sound a little like John Cage's Williams Mix. Lock the Turing Machine for a danceable version. Swap an audio source for an oscillator to get closer to Fontana Mix.
