nerdseq + euclidean circles
#1
Hi all
Does Nerdseq work and synch well with Euclidean Circles? 
I want Nerdseq as master and Euclidean as slave.
any issue with clock and reset?
Thanks

I don't know why it shouldn't. NerdSEQ sends different standard clocks.

Thanks
Just asking cause there are many different clock/reset behaviours
thanks, i feel safe now Smile

hey i just tried this for you - they work perfectly together!

the reset from nerdseq to euclidean does exactly what you'd want it to do, no missing steps or anything

PS euclidean circles needs to get a reset *before* it gets the first clock pulse; and i notice that indeed nerdseq sends a reset on *stop* rather than on *start*

this is great for euclidean circles; but not great for makenoise rene, which always starts 1 step ahead of where it should be when clocked+reset by nerdseq

i would assume nerdseq's reset behaviour will eventually be customisable

Huge thanks for this!! 
Going to buy the circles

Hi Thomas & everyone,

I am wondering... Is a new option or other solution in Nerdseq a possibility? I would be very happy if I could use my Rene 2 with Nerdseq properly. As it stands, it seems like half the times I stop the Nerdseq, Rene 2 resets to beat one (good!) ... and half the times it resets to beat two (not good).

Unless I'm wrong, it seemed like it would mostly work properly when I stopped the clock in the latter half of my 16-beat loop and fail if I stopped it in the first half.

I don't know. If the Rene doesn't get back to 'before' step one after the reset then it is a Rene problem. And checking out some other forums tells me that more people have these problems with the Rene and other clock sources without NerdSEQ. Seem also to be settings related.

Indeed, Rene goes to step 1 (not before step 1) on reset , so if the first clock pulse is after a reset pulse, it will be 1 step ahead.

Pamela’s New Workout can send a reset pulse at the same time as the first clock pulse, so Rene starts from the correct place.

I have Pamela’s between Nerdseq and Rene, and it works great.

But then still: reset by definition got to reset to the first step and the first clock after that got to play this first step. Thats how it suppose to be and that is what the NerdSEQ does.

If i say that it goes ‘before’ the first step, then i mean that it doesn’t play this step. Reset never plays a step. Only clocks do.

Yeah I agree, and I know what you mean.

Unfortunately there are some modules like Rene which do not abide by this law - reset will simply tell it to go to step 1. And then when it gets a clock pulse, it will start playing from step 2. It's stupid, I know. But the only way to get it to behave correctly is to send a reset pulse at the exact same time as it gets the first clock pulse.

Pamela's New Workout is great because I can set one Pam output to send out a reset pulse on STOP (which Euclidean Circles needs), and another output to send a reset pulse on START (which Rene needs). I go Nerdseq clock out 24ppm-> Pam's Clock in ... and Pam's sends clock to Rene and Euclidean; using those separately behaving outputs to send the reset signals that each module recognizes.

So to summarize, if you want to use Nerdseq with Rene, you'll need to find a way to send the reset pulse at the same time as it gets the first clock pulse. I guess you could sacrifice a trigger to do this
