I like to use a control voltage to determine the density of events
occurring against a basic rhythmic foundation: Sample the output of
a random voltage generator with a sample & hold clocked with an
LFO. Then send the resulting clocked random voltages to a mixer,
and mix with a fixed voltage and some kind of control voltage. The
output of the mixer is sent to the control input of a voltage
controlled switch. The voltage controlled switch is used to gate
the square wave output of the same LFO you used to clock the sample
and hold.

Now, you have square wave that can be used as a trigger or gate.
The density of the events it is triggering is controlled by the
level of the control voltage sent to the mixer input and the
attenuation of the gated random voltage. An envelope can create a
process that becomes more or less dense over time, while another,
slower moving random signal would create random event density. The
events themselves could be random, or pre-determined, such as a tone
row from a sequencer.

hey list
Sound's cool this patch idea. I will try this today.
I am interested at the moment to mix A150, 148, 149 and LFO's of
course. Also I have to also try this one from Dieter's comment, slow
A117 into 149 clk. ALso about 149-2, will it basically produce
random "gates" (gates is this right?)to trigger like A147 CV, or
A162, or A140?
catch you later
