I thought it might be fun to share an ORCA patch here as I use it specifically to control and mess around with the MC in different ways. The patch is a simple 32 step tracker so it’s an alternative approach to working with and alongside the Cycles as is. I’ve added only a couple of cc control functions that can be explored further. It’s also possible to specify individual track lengths. I’ve explained some of that in the info.txt file so you can adapt it how you want. CC control is limited in an unusual way in ORCA but that can force you to be creative
It’s easy to randomise things and to start getting results in alternative ways to plocking and turning knobs. It doesn’t really matter if you’ve never tried ORCA before or if you find the interface intimidating. I’m not the greatest at explaining things so please also check info links on the info.txt.
I’ve found it to be a lot of fun to add data in the tracker to see how it can interact with pre existing patterns or to experiment with controlling other devices in other ways. Sorry no video - I’m just not a video type person. Have fun!
