New module release: Porscha - Polyrhythmic Sequencer Chainer

Post by honki-bobo » Wed Jul 29, 2020 8:19 am

Hi everyone,

after taking a little timeout from module development to focus more on music production and working on my new website I finally finished my new module:

Porscha - The polyrhythmic sequencer chainer

Porscha lets you combine up to 8 sequencer modules and create complex polyrhythmic sequences with ease. A 7:11 polyrhythm over a four-on-the-floor kick drum with hi-hat triplets... no problem. Or add a variation to your kick drum pattern every four bars. You can also let the sequencers run sequentially or in parallel.

Porscha is also the first MBA module to feature adjustable background color. When you click on the MBA logo at the bottom of the module you will see thee knobs appear, a red, a green, and a blue knob. Use these knobs to mix the background color you like. Clicking on the MBA logo again will make them disappear. The new background color is also saved with your preset.

For more information, please read the detailed user manual available as PDF.

To get you started right away, here is the patch that generates the first sound demo. It only uses modules available in Voltage Modular Nucleus:

The patch of the second sound demo also uses the Misfit Audio Electro Drums and the Six-Input Stereo Mixer by Cherry Audio:

PS: It might take Cherry Audio some time to approve the module, so please be patient ;)

Could you post up a few more example resets? I"m having a hard time wrapping my head around how all the Gate, Trigger & CV inputs work. Actually, I'm having a hard time understanding the module in general. Thanks!

Hi sdv,

here is a preset showing how you can chain 8 8-step-sequencers in series to produce longer sequences. I hope this sheds some light on how to use Porscha.

Please also check the user manual.

Here's another example that chains 4 8-step-sequencers in series. Every second one plays triplets.

And yet another example. In this patch Porscha is only used to control the playback.

Downloaded and all I can think about is macaroni!!
I think I'm starting to understand how the module is a master sequencer hub.
A bit of a mind scrambler to get one's head's around (kinda like TENET) but it's starting to make sense.
Thanks for the presets!!
