A nice and creamy overdrive made using a formula found on some paper about gravity studies that sounds great as waveshaper: 1/2(3 n^3 + 7 n^2 + 11n) + (2n+1).

How about using life behaviour to make music? Helix is one of answers, a very special drum machine made featuring genetic crossing over algorithm. The eight samples are triggered by childrens. Each couple of children is generated by single point crossing over of two parents chosen in the Couple macro. As bonus, a map full of circuit bent samples from my incoming library for Reason and Kontakt. Feel free to use’em on your songs. The drums on demo below is made using Helix.
1. Genetic drums (from Apocalypse Meow – Ka’tun IV)
An ensemble useful both as generator (like an Atari Punk Console) or sound mangler. Each group of 2 oscillators is connected to a Logic Gates Group. The result of both blocks is connected to another Logic Gates group and its output is your main sound and controller for the envelope generator. No external effects has been used for the audio demo. All reverbs, delays and phasers you’ll notice are generated by the Comb filter.
- 4 Square oscillators. Each couple is connected to a Logic Gate section.
- 3 Logic Gate Sections with inverters. Select different combination for your “bit” amusement.
- Comb Filter.
- Envelope Generator to control filter and gate. EG is triggered by Operators mix.
- Gate section controlled by Operators or Envelope Generator.
1. Processed L3 drums
