Modular Diary – 082

A while ago I was looking at a few examples of circular sequencers and wondering why there weren’t more following this form. RileyGuy has since posted his Audulus clone of the wonderful Euclidean Circles eurorack module, built referencing Biminiroad‘s 5 Step Gate-Trigger Shape Sequencer. Biminiroad posted a demo of an earlier version of that sequencer with the outputs triggering different aspects of a single snare module – which got me thinking of the Basimilus Iteritas Alter, a module that I’d still like to take a closer look at.

Buchla provided some of the inspiration for Bimini’s rotating shape sequencer, and I came across a video of Don Buchla himself demonstrating his Polyphonic Rhythm Generator. The video, titled How Complicated Could a Metronome Be?, is unfortunately a little difficult to watch due to some shaky filming, but fascinating nevertheless.
