I did a really basic patch with MicroBurst. I was hoping somebody could show me/us a musical way of using MicroBurst.
Not sure how basic your basic patches have been. Here's a very basic use of Micro Burst as a one-shot arpeggiator (simple tonal example):

Basic theory of operation (role of Micro Burst Module):
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • USB keyboard outputs (a) a trigger, (b) a pitch, and (c) a gate.
  • keyboard trigger goes to (d) Micro Burst Module and (e) 8 step sequencer's reset
  • (f) pitch goes to CV offset of 8 step sequencer as the initial note of the one-shot arp
  • (g) gate goes to envelope generator
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Micro Burst Module sends out up to 9 triggers for each USB keypress
  • the 8 step sequencer plays steps 1 -> 8 and stops
  • if the keypress is held down (i.e., sustained), the amp + env gen holds step 1
  • if another key is pressed, the 8 step sequencer resets to step 1
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Option: Change the number of busts from 9 to 25 (or another multiple of the number of steps used + 1).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: This is far less creative than the experimental patches I have been playing with, but I hope it demonstrates the start of a tonal application. It is simple but could readily be made more complicated. Hope this helps.
Thank you

You're welcome. I had fun learning about that module. I had never used it myself and now have some ideas to explore!
