Torso T-1 emulation?
Has anyone ever thought about replicating the functionality of the Torso T-1 in Drambo using the randomizers and Euclidean sequencers in layers and using knobs to “modulate” the patterns and rhythms?
ive seen some super cool generative patches for drambo but none that seem as performative or “tactile” as the T-1. Give me your suggestions if you know of something like this or even in the same ballpark! I have some stuff I’d love to mangle in this way.
note: I would make this a thing, but I don’t own or have access to a T-1 so I’d be trying to translate stuff based on the manual, also I’m stupid, so.
I haven't seen anyone doing this yet.
Don't give up building your own stuff, it will take quite some time to clone a T-1 (and I bet that most of us would indeed read the manual of their dream box and go from there) but you'll learn a lot about Drambo on the way.
Patchstorage is a great collection of some fantastic work done by various members, it's worth digging in and looking at others' work.
If all fails, start with simple racks and feel free to ask here if you get lost.
@ZhouJing has replicated substantial parts of the Eventide Misha box, called "M1sha" on patchstorage.
More generative stuff:
I read up on the Torso T-1 manual. Replicating most of the features of the T-1 in Drambo is not too difficult. The Euclidean sequencer, chords, cv quantizer, Arp, Retrig, randomizer, are all native modules of Drambo. The hard part is building a good performance interface and effective visual feedback, and Drambo currently offers limited tools for this part.
