DESCRIPTION

A lower octave (default C1) is reserved for programming chords. When the notes are released the chord will stick until the next chord (don't hold down chords).

Notes above that octave are played like a monosynth, but generate chords using six voices which follow the current chord, and each note plays the chord in a different manner.

Chord progressions can also be programmed and looped using the built-in sequencer. Playing chords live is more fun but might take some practice

Finally got around to playing with this one over the weekend - great stuff! You can get some excellent wonky sounds and the tone's just sweet! really nice build :)

the sound is, how you say... schwifty it almost reminds me of older additive synths which often sound much more organic that commonly heard these days

Maybe one tip for the „nubees” ctrl-click (Mac) to erase a note in the Seq-section window.

No it doesn't work that way but that's a good idea I will see if I can cleanly separate the MIDI section from the synth section so it can be used on its own and routed to anything.

This is exceptional! Thank you! Is there a way to get the MIDI to come out of it so I can get it to play other synths in my DAW? I tried in Bitwig to route it that way but it seems like the MIDI is not passing out of the ensemble. Sorry if this is novice question...
