I've got a live set coming up and plan to use this rack (maybe) along with Digitakt for beats.
Here is what I'm trying to do:
1 - I want to play four note chords through Cruin and Chainsaw via Harmonaig.
2 - Sometimes I want to play them through Ikarie
3 - Or switch them over to Natural Gate
4 - Or play a different melody line through Cruin
5 - And be able to split Cruin into Natural Gate while Chainsaw goes into Ikarie
As I work through the permutations, I start to get lost a bit - and am hoping to find a simpler approach. I own a lot of utilities, and am willing to buy another if something nails this. Here is my strategy so far...
- I am mixing Cruin and Chainsaw into the first Hyrol, and from there it is easy to mult that mix into both NG and Ikarie.
- I can then mix NG and Ikarie with 4xMix into Mimeophone.
- I can also change the v/oct into Cruin from Harmonaig to another melody line using Switchblade (which I can also use to change the trigger).
- But at that point I want to split Cruin into NG and Chainsaw into Ikarie. And I don't have a solution for that...
I could put another mixer in front of NG. Basically give each NG and Ikarie a dedicated mix. BUT, I'd love to be able to flip a switch or button to make the swap from chord to separate melodies - rather than twist knobs. I have mutes which might help - and could use more mults maybe.
The most obvious thing to do is repatch :) But this is for a live performance, and would rather not if I can find a module based solution.
Any slick ideas? Thank you!
