Ambient/Generative
« on: May 12, 2019, 03:12:28 pm »
I have just bought the Minibrute 2S and a rackbrute.
My goal is a rack for ambient and generative music.
I need suggestions for suitable modules.
Here is a rack that I am thinking of:

Can this be a start?

When I get a Rackbrute I will mostly use AJH Minimod modules. They sound amazing.

For ambient I prefer plucky bell tones or soft swelling sounds. But that's all preference. I really like Mutable Instruments Plaits for those kind of plucky patches. The percussive noise options it has can go a long way.

To get generative music you'll go a long way with something that can randomize gates or provide logic options for interesting gating. For this I use Klavis Logica XT. Another popular option is Branches by Mutable Instruments, but i think the Logica has more options for a comparable price.

You can use the MB2 LFOs on the random pulse settings to get some gate randomization, but for me it's just not there.

I will then usually use the sequencer to set up a procession of notes in a key and then set it to play random on board or through the aux channels. Since it's in the same key it's not the most generative option, but i prefer it for ambient styles because out of key notes are likely to create some tension that will break that ambiance.
