I saw a video about the Rhythmicon developed by Léon Theremin 1930-32
and tried to create it's pattern arrangement in Buzz with FUdrum3.

Here is the somewhat clumsy result:

Captivating demonstration. Seems a lot of work.
I enjoyed the Poly 01. Thanks to share! 8-)

Excellent, great idea, and we can have a better sound in Buzz, Rhythmicon is a little bit painful. Leon Theremin was a strange guy, theremine is hard to play, and Rhythmicon is really weird, anyway, it's the roots.
Thak you for these templates. A new way for groove and polyrhythm.

I do something in September with your template, using Snowglobe's ScaleWalker and also IXix's Magic, to compare, also to try decimal values in magic, I post it now it's unfinished (of course) but I will use these templates, i like the chaos generated by these mathematical subdivisions, and also regular things.

Those are great tinga, though I haven't got a clue how they work! :lol:

The template using Magic is now empty, I have to optimise the structure, but the page system allows a lot of things.

Have you noticed that you can do this kind of thing...

Not really, I notice that page fire directly now after loading the file, autoplay :) , but I didn't use the internal triggering system :? , a crazy thing, Magic self drive works in any way you want, thank you to report me on this, I didn't realise the potential of all the complex loops we can do (yes very complex).

Yes, that was always the intention but it was broken and I hadn't noticed. :oops:

Yes, there are very few limits! The hard part is keeping track of how it all fits together. The notepad machine becomes essential! :lol:

You're welcome. The pace of development has slowed but I still have plenty of ideas. Thanks for the FuDrum presets! :D

About the Magic's self drive, I see in your demo that the delay of the trigger sequence clock set the tempo, cool add this in your help :lol: maybe you do it, my English is not very good, in fact it's very logical, and very cool.
Just a question, when we turn your demo to an empty page, music doesn't stop, is it normal? have we to stop the sequence before?

The documentation is still a work in progress. :lol:

No, it should stop (I think! :lol:) You're the best bug hunter in the world tinga! I'll look at that tomorrow.

edit: Perhaps clearing the Event queue on a Page change should be optional, maybe per-Page? Hmmm....
