ENDORPHIN-ES RUNNING ORDER
LISTEN TO THE HEARTBEAT CAREFULLY
RUNNING ORDER is two track trigger generator: it can be a precise master clock or manipulate an incoming clock and thus works great as a sub-sequencer/divider in your eurorack environment.
- 6 HP width, 30 mm depth (including ribbon cable)
- Power requirements: +12V: 30mA, -12V: 10 mA
- Low jitter clock generation
- SH-1x1 style 1/16th note input mode (step/rest) with manual or CV controllable amount of trigger repeats as long as the trigger step is active
- Euclidean rhythm generator
- Separate reset inputs to sync, reset for track 1 is normalled to reset of track 2
- Clock divider for incoming external clock allows to generate various musical divisions on the fly incl. triplets of course but more importantly tuplets. This mode allows to evenly distribute the desired amount of triggers into one single bar.
- Separate mute buttons for both tracks
- 8 patterns of trigger sequences are stored in the module and recalled on the next power on.
RUNNING ORDER is a super compact shallow little trigger mangler and helper. It wants to bring your hi-hats or tom sequences alive within a glimpse of an eye – quickly hook the module to your master clock and program just a few steps. All the rest will be done by RUNNING ORDER and you can enjoy changing the clock divisions and amount of repeats. Apply that triggers to your melody line and discover melodies from a new point of view.
The module works in two modes:
- Normal (step input)
In normal mode you simply enter the trigger sequence in SH101 style as a sequence or steps (1, or active trigger) and rests (0, or pause/skipped step). Recording starts once you switch the toggle to track either 1 or 2. Turning it to the middle immediately starts the playback of recorded sequence. In that mode we can thoroughly program our repeated trigger sequences and influence on them with external clock with dividers and set amount of repeats of active triggers that happen.
In Euclidean mode, you can’t program a sequence of triggers per se, however you set the number of triggers, which are spread over the Euclidean circle you set – the rest is done by the module itself.
Euclidean and step modes can be used separately for each track – press the correlating button 2 seconds to change the mode.
Sounds fun to easily create complicated complex trigger sequences on the fly and mangle various types of poly-metric and rhythmic sequences locked to your grid. Using the reset inputs allows you to synchronize the tracks but when used creatively the module generates bursts impulse trains.
Separate so-called TUPLET mode for external clock needs special dedication. Tuplet in musical terms means dividing the beat into a different number of equal subdivisions. It has some similarities with Euclidean mode where we set amount of fills with triggers happening. However, in that tuplet mode you can program your own trigger sequence and evenly distribute the number of triggers happening per your bar using CV. Tuplets can be triplets for instance and – if using higher divisions creatively – it can become pleasant ratcheting.
Did we mention that, if you apply a shuffled external clock, RUNNING ORDER also shuffles properly?
The cherry on the pie are the patterns: 8 patterns are available and each pattern contains sequences for both tracks. Patterns are switched consequently once the track with the longest number of steps is finished. To switch a pattern, press both buttons and rotate the CLOCK/DIV/PATT knob to one of the 8 ranges in between the marks.
