I’ve recently been diving deep with my Subharmonicon in the context of my eurorack, and have been coming up with some interesting things with clocking and sequencing it.
I’ve been seeing a lot of Subharmonicons go up for sale recently on Reverb.com. I can understand this. Predicting what will come out of the Subharmonicon is a complete mystery until a) you really understand what its doing, and b) learn how to impose your will upon it. This post (and more to come on this) is going to cover that b) part.
Many people have been complaining that they are having a hard time both controlling what comes out of the Subharmonicon and also getting it to do interesting musical things within the context of other changing parts or a regular song structure. So I thought I’d share some tips on how I’m doing both those things with it….to pretty cool effect as you can see here.
