Ken Stone's enormously versatile and creative Burst Generator replies to a trigger input pulse - with a rotary switch selectable string of from one-to-nine pulses out. Bada, Bing! Bing! Bing! There's a choice between the adjustable internal clock or an external one, as well as logical outs representing when an "Event" is in progress, looping, or completed...

This can be used at slow speeds for example, to count the number of times a sequencer repeats before interrupting it's cycle, and then triggering another event to begin! Or the Burst Generator module can be used at pseudo audio frequencies for rasp and washboard effects.

When triggered by a keyboard, this versatile module can easily generate percussive Hammond Organ or woodwind type chiffs on each note played.

Lots of auto-compositional fun linking these together, or with the excellent Modcan 17A Sequencer or the Stone Gate Sequencers!

Demo by Les Mizzell

This is two communicating burst generators with a background "noodle drone" being provided by a Waldorf XTk. (Yes Cyn, the big orange thing!)

Patch Description: Burstie #1 is set to 9 pulses and Burstie #2 is set to 6. Both are set to trigger the other at the end of each you get 6-9-6-9-....

Burstie #1 is also triggering 1/2 of a Modcan dual LFO, which is acting as a pulse divider to give the accent you're hearing on every third beat. Burstie #2 is triggering the other 1/2 of the DLFO, which is providing a long EG that last throught the entire cycle of 6 pulses.

All this in turn is controlling separate signal paths on the left and right channels, each comprised of it's own set of OSC's - Filters on each side.


Hickory, Dickory, Dock,
Two Burst Generators with intertwined clocks!
At the count of ten they both recycle again,
and the fun and the rhythm never stops!

Actually in this case the only clock source is that from each other. The raw pulse outputs from each Burst Generator are being fed through filters and represent the left and right speakers respectively.
