Yeah you could have notegen sending notes to arper or something, then notefilter subtracting notes from that to make it more random sounding but still rhythmic, then use sampler-24 or when it’s done samplerstyleREC. This is what is so great about Orac, you can gerry-rig together whatever ya want with what is there a lot of the time
What I particularly love about CAmenti is that you can change the pattern length so easily. So if you set it to ‘1’ you get the same bar repeating. But if you set it to ‘2’ you may get two slightly different bars repeating. Often, when I set it to ‘4’ I got three bars the same and one different before these four bars repeated. And this can be changed as it’s playing, so it can go from similar bars to some different bars and then back again. The sequencer is so easy to use, it has fantastic visuals and it strikes me that it gives a great balance of repetition with some variation. You can also change the pattern of the first bar so easily!
I just thought that since it has been constructed so well already it would also make a great drum machine type patch if you could drop in one-shot samples or record them into it.
It’s such an original sequencer it should be widely used!
New Patches! Arp-II (AARRPP) & Arp-III (AAARRRPPP)
Two arpeggio patches that use probability to control whether or not an arpeggiated note plays.
Arp-II has two independent arpeggiators that feed notes into a multi-synth. Choose one of nine synth voices from the multi-synth and let the ocean of arpeggiated notes lap onto your beach and/or capsize your boat!
Arp-III has three independent arpeggiators that are fed into a subtractive synth. While not as ‘synth-y’ as Arp-II, the additional arpeggiator makes up the difference!
Both patches are Link enabled for tempo syncing with other devices on a shared wireless network. (WiFi adapter required; sold separately.)
Special thanks to Chris Powell for his contributions to this patch!

So excited for this!
This is why I bought an Organelle.
The possibility of this patch.
Thank you for the time.
New Patch! Randomlog
Randomlog is a cousin of the Organelle’s Analog Style. In this patch, the values for Cutoff, Resonance, Attack, and Release are chosen at random with each note!

New Patch! Ypolimenti
Record a sample and create a re-sorted, rhythmic re-make of it!
Ypolimenti is a sample looping patch that combines the powers of the Segmenti and Pow Pow’s Polybeats patches. After you record a sample, it is sliced into 24 even segments distributed across the Organelle’s keyboard. Ypolimenti uses the polyrhythmic sequencer from Pow Pow’s Polybeats to loop selected segments at different beat divisions of a single measure

Having an issue downloading the ypolimenti patch, saying page not found
Here you go…
Sorry about that - uploaded a very slightly new version and the link changed.
Just FYI, this link appears to be broken as well.
the link appears to be fine
Ah… I see now.
That’s frustrating. Last week, the main Organelle Patches page wasn’t loading for me correctly in Firefox - the “Download Patch” button was gone and the rest of the page was jumbled. When it did finally appear, I got a legit 404 message when I clicked on it. When I clicked on this new link, I took a quick glance and just assumed stuff still wasn’t working. I’ve been waiting for the site to “come back up” this whole time. Oh well.
New Patch: LFOmlog
A cousin to Analog Style and Randomlog, LFOmlog is an independently tunable two oscillator synth featuring independent LFO control of Cutoff Freq, Resonance, Attack, and Decay parameters.
Set the range and center of each LFO-controlled parameter and then set the LFO rate.
Aux Button controls a new ‘Aux Menu’. When you press Aux for 0.2 seconds, a new menu is displayed on OLED Screen for as long as you hold Aux. With Aux pressed:
- The Top Row of Organelle keys selects the Menu command. There are 10 possible commands selected by the 10 keys. The low C# key selects Top Left command. The High A# key selects the Bottom Right command (if applicable).
- The Bottom Row of keys selects one of 14 Sequence ‘slots’ to record to. Changing sequence slot will change the number that precedes the command in the left column.
Aux Menu Commands:
- Seq Play/Stop – Plays/Stop selected Sequence.
- Seq Record
a. When selected, Sequence is first Record Enabled. LED will be Pink. Sequencer is waiting for key press or incoming MIDI note.
b. When key pressed or MIDI Note received, Recording starts.
c. To end recording, press Aux (new seq begins looping immediately)
- Seq Dub – Overdub on top of existing sequence. Counts in 3 Sec before starting recording.
- Undo – Reverts Sequence to previous state.
- Latch – Toggles Latch On or Off.
- Sync: On/Off. When ‘On’: New note retriggers LFO back to 0 (zero) so that all notes are in same phase.
Footswitch: Toggles Latch On/Off
If sending MIDI clock or part of a Link session:
- Sequence length will be quantized to nearest quarter note.
- Sequence playback speed will sync to tempo
Note: For those users who become comfortable with the Aux menu: If you press both Aux and Menu command/Sequence Slot key before the menu is displayed, your choice/command will be accepted.
I’m happy to see more C&G patches! This is wonderful stuff as always.
Hi, @chrisk Any chance of a brief video explaining the LFOmlog Aux menu commands. I’ve followed what you’ve written above, but I just cannot get my head around it. How do i record a sequence? To me, it’s really not that clear…sorry. Looking forward to delving deeper into this patch - it looks great!
Update - I think I’ve figured it. Still confused about bpm though…(?)
Hi @ampism, In the post above, I updated the description of LFOmlog’s Aux menu. I hope that helps.
The LFOmlog patch does not use a tempo (in BPM) for synthesis. The BPM display is purely for sequencing. The sequencer can quantize the length of a sequence to the nearest quarter note if you send the Organelle MIDI clock or join a Link session. Playback speed will be synced to external tempo.
Thanks for replying @chrisk - Yes, makes more sense now. Best, paul
New Patch: Three Tracks
Layer three synth/sampler Tracks together. A Track is both the sound engine (eight synths/samplers) and 14 possible stored sequences. Possibilities!
What is this patch?
This patch has three ‘Tracks.’ A Track is both the sound engine (eight synths/samplers) and 14 possible stored sequences. Tracks may be played individually or all at once.
For each Track A, B, C, select a synth/sampler to play (Knob1). Dial up a track’s synth/sampler settings(Knob2-4). Record to one of the Track’s sequence ‘slots’ using the Aux Menu (more on this below). Repeat for the other two tracks. Create variation by:
- Recording new sequences for a given Track
- Selecting other sequences while the other two Tracks continue to play the same sequences.
- Changing the synth/sampler on a currently playing sequence.
Control the volume of each Track via the Mix page. There is a fun LFO mix control which automatically fades Tracks in/out at the LFO rate.
The BPM page has a tempo control and metronome control. Dial up a specific BPM so the sequencer can quantize sequence length to the nearest quarter note. Alternatively, if you send the Organelle MIDI clock or join a Link session, sequence playback speed will be synced to that external tempo.
How Do I Use this Patch?
The Aux Button controls a new ‘Aux Menu’. When you press Aux for 0.2 seconds, a new menu is displayed on OLED Screen for as long as you hold Aux. The available Aux Menu Commands depends on which ‘page’ you are currently viewing (AKA ‘On’). The Right Column never changes.
To select a Menu command/Page, use the Top Row of Organelle keys. There are 10 possible commands selected by the 10 keys. The low C# key selects Top Left command. The High A# key selects the Bottom Right command. The Command Grid is to be read from top left to bottom, then top right to bottom.
If Track A/B/C Page is ‘On’ the following Aux commands are available:
- Seq:Play/Stop - Plays or Stops selected sequence
- Rec:Off/Armd - Controls Sequence Recording:
- When selected, Sequence is first Record Armed (Enabled). LED will be Pink. Sequencer is waiting for knob adjustment, key press or incoming MIDI note.
- When knob adjusted, key pressed or MIDI Note received, Recording starts. LED is Red.
- To end recording, press Aux (new seq begins looping immediately). LED will be Green and flash White on quarter note.
- Dub:Off/On – Overdub on top of existing sequence. Counts in 3 Sec before starting recording. To end recording, press Aux and sequence begins looping immediately.
- Undo – Reverts Sequence to previous state. If this command says ‘Undid’ you cannot ‘undo’ further.
The Bottom Row of keys selects one of 14 Sequence ‘slots’ to record to. Changing sequence slot will change the number that precedes the command in the left column.
If Mix/BPM Page is ‘On’ the following Aux commands are available:
- PlayAll - Plays all three tracks’ selected sequence.
- StopAll– Stops all of the three tracks.
The PlayAll and StopAll commands are not the same as turning on/off all sequencers in Tracks A+B+C individually. The last OLED screen line may say ‘Stopped All’ even though one or more sequencers is playing.
The Bottom Row of keys will not control anything.
Tech-y Specs :
There is a Transpose control for each Track. It is located at the end of the list of synths/samplers (Knob1 all the way right). The keyboard is muted when this control is selected. Take care not to have ‘hung’ MIDI notes if you enter Transpose control with sequence playing, etc.
For those users who become comfortable with the Aux menu: If you press both Aux and Menu command/Sequence Slot key before the menu is displayed, your choice/command will be accepted.
MIDI: ‘Live’ keypresses (MIDI notes) are sent out on the MIDI Out Channel configured in System/Settings/MIDI Setup menu. Sequences send MIDI notes out on different channels. Track A sequenced notes are sent on Ch. 1. Track B sequences are sent on Ch. 2. Track C sequences are sent on Ch. 3. You can modify these channels by editing the [pd Sequencers] file in main.pd. There are comments showing which objects to modify.
Some fun ideas :
- The tracks can play any sequence - they don’t all have to play the same sequence slot: You might find that Sequences A2, B7, C13 is the combination you are looking for. Or maybe it is Sequences A5, B1, C12!
- You can use the same synth/sampler across all three tracks.
- You can play the keyboard on the Mix page. It will play the three voices (one from each Track)! If you have sequences playing you can play on top of them. Things can get weird quick, but if you make each track a variant of the same synth/sampler, you can dial up some nice combinations. The only problem with this feature is that you will want to sequence your sounds here and there is no fourth Track to sequence this! One solution is to sequence with MIDI from an external MIDI device or DAW.
- You can record sequences with only knob adjustments (no notes) for loops of automation.
