I’m considering the purchase of an Organelle and just want to ensure it fits my musical aspirations. I plan on using it in conjunction with an Elektron Analog Four, a Nord Drum, and electric guitar.
Here’s the idea: the Nord Drum is triggered by the Analog Four’s CV outs. The Nord’s mono output and a line level guitar signal will share the Organelle’s stereo line input, and the Organelle’s stereo outputs will feed into the Analog Four’s stereo ins. Everything then comes out of the Analog Four’s stereo outputs.
-Is it tricky to split up audio processing tasks from the Organelle’s stereo in? I expect that I’ll want different processing on drums and on guitar. Often I imagine drums would simply travel through the signal path unaffected.
-Will I be asking too much from the processor if I want, say, a shoegazey guitar effect and a big drum reverb going on at the same time? Maybe I’m playing along on the Organelle’s keys as well, all while a sequence is running… am I starting to reach some limitations with these ideas?
-After building a patch in PD that features some of these routing ideas, is it pretty straightforward to copy and port a structure like this into other patches? i.e. copying in a ‘dry ins through’ structure into every patch so my drums and guitar are always sending through dry to the outputs regardless of patch? Am I going to encounter significant latency trying this?
-I’d like to send midi clock from the A4 to the Organelle with a midi to usb cable. Should I expect any complications? Anyone else already doing this?
-Aside from midi clock and midi note messages, I’d love to build sequences in the Organelle that are selected and start/stopped with midi program change messages from the Analog Four. Theoretically, one sequence for each of the A4’s 128 (per project). Is this just starting to become funny to whoever is reading this?
-Last but not least, I’d love to have the Organelle creating visuals sent out on the HDMI port. Anyone exploring this yet?
Thanks in advance for any and all responses!
