abstract eurorack format rhizomatic cascading counter for monome grids

meadowphysics facilitates the exploration of polyrhythms and rule-based sequencing, producing a wide range of emergent patterns.

a monome grid is plugged into the front panel of the module, serving as a complete interface. the procedure continues running when the grid is disconnected, facilitating both live performance and precomposed playback of generative systems.

as the second module in the grid-based eurorack series, this module highlights the ability to swap the grid between modules rapidly, patching the usb cable much like a 3.5mm cable. this module can be used in conjunction with white whale using a single grid gracefully.

the foundation of meadowphysics is an incoming clock which can be internal or external. seven additional counters can be cross-assigned with this clock to count down an assignable number of counts, which is the primary interface on the grid. when a counter reaches zero, the corresponding output is triggered on the panel. given a flexible assignment method, very complicated long-form mutating polyrhythms can be created intuitively.

in addition a series of “rules” an be applied at the zero count of each counter. the count length can be reassigned-- incremented/decremented, randomized, reset to last value, etc. a counter can have a rule assigned to change another counter's behavior. in this way long evolving patterns emerge.

very simply falling rhythms can also be accomplished in a very straightforward manner. a standard subdivided counter will be running as a default behavior.

configurations are preset-able and savable to flash for later recall and instant resume on power-up.

there have been many editions of monome grids over the years. meadowphysics is optimally designed for late 128 (8x16) models that support variable brightness (2012 and on). smaller grids are supported, but pattern step lengths are adjusted. larger grids are supported, but presently the bottom half will not be used. mono-brightness grids are supported, but the data displayed will be less rich.

monome grids require a large amount of 5v power, which may not be typically available on all eurorack systems. be sure to check the ratings of the power supply to be used.

furthermore, eurorack power systems are not well designed for dynamic power loading. undesirable anomalies may be introduced in certain eurorack configurations when shared with a grid controller. we've designed a small breakout adapter (ext5v) to separately power the grid controller if needed. if this adapter is used, very little 5v will be used from the eurorack power supply. the adapter requires a separate 5v supply which delivers at least 1a on a 2.1mm center positive plug.
