Divide and multiply an incoming rate!
Clock Division and Multiplication are extremely handy tools for sequencing melodies, drum patterns and control signals.
This lesson discusses various techniques for doing just that using Synth Kit and Logic modules. Its goal is to provide insight into clock manipulation and to introduce related tools in the way of micro-patches which can be added to a user's vocabulary. These micro-patches can then be called upon whenever rhythmic variation is needed.
Intended for intermediate-level littleBits users, this lesson presupposes some familiarity with the modules used and with the concepts discussed. However, it has been structured in such a way that new users can follow along as well-- there is very little tuning to be done in it, and its output is primarily visual.
While this lesson is aimed towards music and sound production uses, it can be applied to any littleBits project which requires co-related timing signals.
