Some Random H9 Presets

April 12, 2015 - 12:48 pm

Many H9 algorithms feature Random or Sample and Hold modulation.  They can add rhythmic interest and unpredictable nuances to your presets, ranging from subtle enhancements to uncontrolled chaos.

When I first received my PitchFactor, I was pleasantly surprised by some of the Harpeggiator functions.  I wasn't expecting the ability to create all kinds of  "multi-effects".  The first task was to create a MIDI sync version of my Oberheim VCF-200.

The expression pedal mapping was simple:  DYNAMICS is inactive with no RHYTHM pattern enabled.  The pedal brings up a rhythm pattern; giving a sharper attack to the S&H filter sequences.

  

Expression Pedal Heel  RHYTHM A  OFF

Expression Pedal Heel  RHYTHM B  OFF

Expression Pedal Toe   RHYTHM A  01

Expression Pedal Toe   RHYTHM B  01

That led to many more discoveries using random modulation in the HarPeggiator.  And now it's extended to the other H9 algorithms.  Sample and Hold [quantized random modulation], and (truly) Random modulation are mainly found within the ModFactor algorithms.  More presets to come ...

A couple more great batches of presets, Brock, quickly building quite a library of special effects. Your work really shows the way to expand the possibilities of the ET stompbox algos. Thanks!

Maybe I should start a bread 'n' butter presets thread, or classic FX box emulations.  Lately, I've been re-discovering one semi-common aspect among the H9 algorithms, and exploring it thoroughly.

Here's one similar preset that I neglected to add:

Expression Pedal Heel  DEPTH MOD  99

Expression Pedal Toe   DEPTH MOD  0

A more subtle approach to random modulation:

Expression Pedal Heel  SPEED  2.00Hz

Expression Pedal Toe   SPEED  10.00Hz

I couldn't resist adding this one.  Hit Slow/Fast for a less rhythmic - and more sustained - sound.  The expression pedal counterweights the S&H rates for even more randomness.

Expression Pedal Heel  SPEED  1/4

Expression Pedal Heel  MOD RATE  2.000xSPD

Expression Pedal Toe   SPEED  1/16

Expression Pedal Toe   MOD RATE  0.500xSPD
