Chaotic modulation on norns

Make slow oscillators for crow outputs from norns.


with wobblewobble you can…

  • assign each of the four crow outputs one of many different types of slowly oscillating modulation sources.
  • configure crow as midi->CV or midi->envelope atop any oscillation (or none)
  • visualize slow oscillations from crow inputs (<7hz)

this script was also designed to be a library (all functionality is available in the menu) so that it can be imported for crow functionality from other scripts. no examples of this yet, though.

Requirements

  • norns
  • crow

Documentation

from the main norns screen you can:

  • hold K1 and K2/K3 to switch crow
  • press K2/K3 to switch modulator
  • E1 changes frequency
  • E2/E3changes lfo min/max
  • K1+E2 or K1+E3 changes meta

the params menu has more options, including:

  • clamping the absolute minimum and maximum values
  • add midi input to control pitch (top note, any note) or add an envelope
  • meta params for the modulators
  • change slew rate

oscillators are configured in SuperCollider making it easy to configure / design / add new oscillators, including complex ones from the chaotic UGens. current oscillators:

many many thanks to @proswell for the excellent additions (grid support, five more modulators, adding inputs, adding metas) as well as testing.

any other PRs are welcomed with open wings.
