Sequencers

Currently there are three (3) sequencer modules.

trigSeq & trigSeq64

These are basic boolean on/off pad step sequencers (0V or 10V), based off the Fundamentals SEQ3 sequencer.

  • trigSeq is 16-step; trigSeq64 is 64-step.
  • Now 64 patterns. 16 patterns.
  • 16 channels (outputs).
  • Output modes: TRIG (trigger), RTRG (retrigger), GATE (continuous) (0 or 10V).
  • Inputs: Pattern, BPM, (step) Length, Clock, Reset.
  • Copy & Paste of channel or entire pattern.
  • Open Sound Control (OSC) interface (as of v.0.5.5.1). more info
  • Advanced Randomization options (as of v.0.5.5.2) for all patterns, current edit pattern, or only the displayed channel. Chose from 'normal random' or 'structured' random patterns.
  • Hold mouse down and set multiple pads by dragging.

voltSeq

voltSeq is a variable voltage output step sequencer (-10V to +10V), based off the Fundamentals SEQ3 sequencer.

  • voltSeq is 16-step.
  • Now 64 patterns. 16 patterns.
  • 16 channels (outputs).
  • Output modes:
    • VOLT - Voltage (-10V to +10V): Output whatever voltage you want.
    • NOTE - Midi Note (-5V to +5V) (-4V to +6V): Output notes (12 notes per 1 V; 10 octaves). Base pitch (0V) is now C4 (as of v0.5.5.2). Range is C-1 to C9 as of v0.6.0.
    • PATT - Pattern (-10V to +10V): To control the currently playing Pattern (or Length) on another trigSeq or voltSeq. (Now 1 to 64 in range).
  • Inputs: Pattern, BPM, (step) Length, Clock, Reset.
  • Copy & Paste of channel or entire pattern.
  • Open Sound Control (OSC) interface (as of v.0.5.5.1). more info
  • Advanced Randomization options (as of v.0.5.5.2) for all patterns, current edit pattern, or only the displayed channel. Chose from 'normal random' or 'structured' random patterns.
  • Shift Values (as of v0.5.5.2): +/- 1 Volt or 1 Octave or 1 Pattern for all patterns, current edit pattern, or only the displayed channel.

multiWave

multiWave is a digital oscillator module with three (3) oscillators/clocks, each with two (2) configurable wave channel outputs. This module has been made to complement multiScope and is new in v0.6.3.

  • Screen User Controls:

    • Click on a value to edit it directly (a text box should appear and allow you to type the value).
    • Tab or Tab-Shift will iterate through the editable text boxes.
    • Valid for all displayed values except for WAVE and AUX (AUX is only an editable textbox for pulse width when SQR/rectangle wave is selected).
  • CV Inputs & User Controls per Oscillator:

    • SYNC - (Right hand side) Reset/sync the oscillator (to phase 0). Currently this is CV only (no UI control).
    • AMPL - Amplitude (-10V to +10V).
    • FREQ - Frequency (1V/Oct) for the oscillator clock.
      The Frequency knob rotates 360°. Hold down the Shift key for coarser control or the Control key for finer control while dragging up/down.
    • PHASE - Phase Shift (-10V to +10V).
    • OFFSET - Offset (-10V to +10V).
    • CV Inputs & User Controls per Channel Output:
      • WAV - Waveform Type (-5V to +5V): SIN, TRI, SAW, SQR.
      • AUX - Aux (-5V to +5V). If the CV input is active then, the knob value is ignored.
        Currently only SAW and SQR have functions:
        • SAW: Slope (pos |/| or neg |\|). 0 or positive CV for positive slope.
        • SQR: Pulse Width.
        • SIN and TRI adjustments will be added later when/if we think of another parameter for these waveforms.
      • PHASE - Phase Shift (-10V to +10V). Value is relative to the oscillator clock.
      • MOD - Amplitude modulation (-10V to +10V). Knob controls the mix between the raw signal and the modded signal.
      • * - Button for modulation type (Digital or Ring). Currently this is UI only (no CV input).
  • CV Outputs per Oscillator:

    • SYNC - Triggers whenever the period restarts.
    • CV Outputs per Channel Output:
      • X<n> or Y<n> - RAW waveform without amplitude modulation (MOD).
      • MOD - The modulated waveform (based on the MOD knob and the incoming MOD signal input).

multiScope

multiScope is a visual effects scope, with lissajous mode, that allows three (3) waveforms to be drawn on the same screen/canvas. (code based on JW Modules FullScope and Fundamental Scope)

WARNING: New version seems to crash on Mac OS. If anyone more adept at OSX programming wants to figure out why, it would be MUCH appreciated. Otherwise, whenever there is time we will try to figure it out, but the multiScope module has been degraded to low priority.

  • CV Inputs per Channel:

    • X - X-value (horizontal component).
    • Y - Y-value (vertical component).
    • C - Color/hue (0V to +5V).
    • A - Alpha channel (0V to +5V).
    • BLANK - Blank ON or OFF. By default, Blank is off. ON is any input <=0 (really < 0.1V), otherwise it will be OFF.
      You can use a trigSeq (in CONT mode, synchronized with a voltSeq) to control / hide lines that you do not wish to be shown.
    • FC - Fill Color hue (0V to +5V)
    • FA - Fill alpha channel (0V to +5V).
    • R - Rotation (-10V to +10V). Will either be a rotational rate or if the ABS button is on, it will be the absolute angular position.
    • T - Time.
    • TH - Line Thickness.
  • User Controls per Channel:

    • X - Offset (OFF) & Scale (SCL) knobs.
    • Y - Offset (OFF) & Scale (SCL) knobs.
    • LNK - (Toggle) Link the X-scale and Y-scale knobs together so they will change together (have the same value).
    • C - Color knob. If an input is active on the Color port, this is ignored. Highest setting will yield White now.
    • A - Alpha channel knob. If an input is active on the Alpha port, this is ignored.
    • FC - Fill Color knob. If an input is active on the Fill Color port, this is ignored. Highest setting yield give White now.
    • Fill Color - (Toggle) Fill on/off.
    • FA - Fill alpha channel knob. If an input is active on the Alpha port, this is ignored.
    • Rotation Controls:
      • R - Rotation knob. If an input is active on the Rotation port, this is ignored.
      • ABS - (Toggle) Turning ABS on will make the rotation inputs control the absolute angular position instead of a rate.
    • T - Time adjustment knob. Will be used along with the Time input port.
    • TH - Line Thickness. If an input is active on the Thickness port, this is ignored.
    • EFFECT - Effect knob.
    • X*Y - (Toggle) Toggle lissajous mode on / off (default is on).
  • User Controls for entire module:

    • INFO - (Toggle) Toggle input parameter information on / off (default is on). Located on the right-hand-side (RHS) bar.
    • BG COLOR - (Toggle) Toggle on-screen Background Color picker on / off (default is on). Located on the right-hand-side (RHS) bar.
    • Background Color Picker - Displayed on screen. Hue-Saturation-Light (HSL) sliders to pick the background color.

cvOSCcv

cvOSCcv is a simple, generic Open Sound Control (OSC) module for outputting Rack CVs to OSC and reading in simple OSC messages into Rack CVs. This module is new in version 0.6.0.

  • CV Inputs - CV => OSC (8 Channels), each channel:

    • TRG - If active, then OSC messages will output the VAL CV input when triggered.
    • VAL - The value that will output over OSC. Currently sent as a float. If there is no trigger present, the module will output whenever VAL changes at least 0.05 up to 100 Hz.
  • CV Outputs - OSC => CV (8 channels), each channel:

    • TRG - (0-10V) Triggers whenever an OSC message is received.
    • VAL - (Gate) Outputs the last OSC value received.
  • User Controls:

    • CONFIG - (Toggle) Button to toggle the configuration view. When an OSC connection is active, a blue light will appear on the button.
    • OSC IP Address - The IP address of the OSC client/server. Default is 127.0.0.1.
    • Out Port - Port for sending messages.
    • In Port - Port for receiving messages. Currently, trowaSoft modules can NOT share the same ports.
    • Namespace - The OSC namespace. Default is trowacv.
    • Auto Con - Automatically reconnect on load from save. The connection will be restore if the connection was active (in the save file) and this is checked.
    • Per Channel:
      • Address - Endpoint address. Default is /ch/{channel #}.
      • ADV - (as of v0.6.2) Advanced settings for simple value conversions. Specify simple OSC data types (float, int, bool) and the CV and OSC ranges.

    NOTE: To save Channel Address changes after a connection is active, simply hide the configuration screen again.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
