Make Noise Rene Cartesian Sequencer Module

Details
The Make Noise Rene is a Cartesian sequencer module. It is the world's only modular sequencer of its kind, and is named after the French philosopher and mathematician, Rene Descartes. Using his pioneering Cartesian coordinate system, the Rene removes the linear limitations from the analog sequencer. This module strives to deliver the maximum amount of artist-controlled musical variation, with programming of the module being a key performance element. Rene enables you to utilise up to 4 clock inputs and 2 CV inputs simultaneously, enabling you to achieve elaborate patterns within your sound.

Features

  • Maximum amount of artist controlled musical variation, derived from a minimum amount of data input
  • All programming done in real-time, programming of Rene is a key performance element
  • Up to four clock inputs and two CV inputs may be used simultaneously to achieve complex, musical patterns
  • One quantized voltage out (forced to programmed musical scales) useful for controlling pitch on the DPO
  • One non-quantized voltage out, useful for controlling timbre or pitch throughout the system
  • Two gate/pulse streams, useful for generating timing events within a patch of to trigger a function generator such as MATHS
  • Pairs well with the Pressure Points module
  • Requires approved power solution from Make Noise, TipTop Audio, or Doepfer

Specifications

  • Width: 34HP
  • Max Depth: 24mm
  • Power:
    • 80mA at +12V
    • 0mA at -12V

Controls & I/Os

  • X-CLK Input: Clock/Gate signal (of width greater than .5ms and amplitude greater than 2.5V) applied to this input drives the X-Axis Counter. If using MATHS to clock, then set Vari-Response to LINEAR. When René counts Snake Style, X-CLK steps linearly through a stored set of coordinates; it drives the sequence.
  • X-MOD Input: The state of this input (either HI or LO) further determines behavior of René depending upon the selections made in the X-Fun PGM Page. For example, when CLK-RST is selected under X-Fun a logic HI at this input will Reset the X-Axis Counter to 0.
  • X-CV Input: Control signal at this input generate a number that is added to the number generated by the X-Axis Counter, to create the X coordinate. When René counts Snake Style, X-CV scans linearly through a stored set of coordinates. X-CV is normalled to +5V so that with nothing patched the attenuator acts as oset generator
  • X-CV Input CV Attenuator
  • Y-CLK Input: Clock/Gate signal (of width greater then .5ms and amplitude greater then 2.5V) applied to this input drives the Y-Axis counter. If using MATHS to clock, then set Vari-Response to LINEAR. When René counts Snake Style, Y-CLK selects stored coordinates set.
  • Y-MOD Input: The state of this input (either HI or LO) further determines behavior of René depending upon the selections made in the Y-Fun PGM Page. For example, when Glide is selected under Y-Fun a logic HI at this input will engage the glide function.
  • Y-CV Input: Control signal at this input generate a number that is added to the number generated by the Y-Axis Counter, to create the Y coordinate. When René counts Snake Style, Y-CV selects stored set of coordinates.. Y-CV is normalled to +5V so that with nothing patched, the attenuator acts as an oset generator.
  • Y-CV Input CV Attenuator
  • Touch Grid sensitivity control: To increase sensitivity, set the position 100 clockwise.
  • QCV: The Quantized Control Voltage for the currently active location will appear at this output. QCV may also yield a Stored Quantized Voltage (if selected on Q Page), in which case the corresponding location potentiometer is no longer “live.” Value: 4 octaves.
  • CV: An unquantized Control Voltage of the currently selected location will appear at this output. At the CV OUT, the location potentiometers are always “live.” Value: 0 to 4.5V.
  • Gate X: This output affects the programming on the X-Gate Page. When René arrives at a location, and the location is set to ON (lighted) at the X-Gate PGM Page, this output goes HI for duration determined by the XCLK width and any programmed Logic Operations that Axis Clock or Gate. When counting SNAKE style, the Gate output is always a skinny pulse (2ms) perfect for ringing Low Pass Gates. Value: 0V or +8V.
  • Gate Y: This output affects the programming on the Y-Gate Page. When René arrives at a location, and the location is set to ON (lighted) at the Y-Gate PGM Page, this output goes HI for duration determined by the YCLK width and any programmed Logic Operations aecting the Axis Clock or Gate. When counting SNAKE style, the Gate output is always a skinny pulse (2ms) perfect for ringing LoPass Gates. Value: 0V or +8V.
  • CV Programming Grid: Potentiometers used for programming. Contain Location LED’s to indicate currently active Location(s).
  • PGM 1: [PRESS] to cycle through the ProGraM Pages
  • PGM 2: When in a ProGraM Page, [PRESS] to return to Play Mode. While in Play Mode, [PRESS] to latch currently-held Locations.
  • Touch Grid: Used to select Locations for programming and latching.
  • G-Y LED: [FLASHES] to indicate Gate activity at the G-Y Output.
  • G-XLED: [FLASHES] to indicate Gate activity at the G-X Output.
  • ProGraM Page LED’s: Light when associated ProGraM Page is being accessed. All ProGraM LED’s will [FLASH] to indicate storage is taking place.
  • 4x4 CV Programming grid: Potentiometers sets Tuned Voltage for corresponding Locations, 0 thru 15.
  • 4x4 Touch Grid: In PLAY mode, the touch pads may be used to set ACCESS in real time, eectively allowing the performer to play the ACCESS parameter. In use, this means that René will go to only the locations that the performer is touching. Additionally, touching and releasing a single location while René is PLAYing will set a new start point, thus creating a variation on your sequence. With no Clocks patched to René, touching any location on the Touch Grid will select said location, and the CV and QCV value is held until the next location is touched, or a clock pulse is applied to either X-CLK or Y-CLK. This is useful for programming or Tuning Notes (with CV applied to VCO 1V/oct input, for example). In ProGraM Pages, the Touch Grid is used select and deselect the various parameters available under each PGM Page.
  • PGM 1: This Touch Plate is used to cycle through the different ProGraM Pages. Each of the 6 ProGraM pages has an associated LED which lights when selected. PGM1 returns to last selected PGM Page.
  • PGM 2: While PLAYing, this Touch Plate is used to Latch/Unlatch the steps held by the performer using the 4x4 Touch Grid. Once within the PGM Pages, the PGM2 touch is used to EXIT the PGM Pages and return to PLAY. The PGM2 button is also used to save the default start?up programming for René. To do this, make all changes to all ProGraM Pages. Touch PGM2 and exit PGM Pages. Now, Touch and [HOLD] PGM2 until all PGM LED’s blink.
