Axoloti 3d shape rotation patch

This is a basic Axoloti patch for 3d shape rotation on a x y monitor/oscilloscope. The patch uses the vertices data from shapes created in OsciStudio and then copied to tables. For the conversion you can use this spreadsheet: Oscistudio table conversion spreadsheet
Inside the patch there are already 3 different example shapes.

MHzxER video rate mixer

Made this eurorack mixer for video rate signals based on Lars Larsen circuit design.

Axoloti oscillo sample player

I'm using the Axoloti as portable sample player for audio files made with the great OsciStudio software to do 3d oscillographics in conjunction with the modular synth.
This is the Axoloti patch:

This is a live performance made with Axoloti and modular synth.

Here the patch and the raw files.
The patch is made to be used with the Music Thing Modular Axoloti Control Board. You have to upload the raw files to the root directory of the sd card with the file manager of the axoloti software. The patch has a little problem ... there is a short glitch at the looping point of the sample that I was not able to remove.
Patch to use if you don't have the Control Board (download also the other for the raw files)

phonogening hang

phonogening hang
by ubumaic (a.k.a. michele cagol)
this piece was created from a short musical fragment played on a swiss idiophone hang, recorded during a live performance by kvsu (hannes pasqualini and michele cagol, both playing modular synthesizers) with emanuel valentin on the hang. the sample remained for several months in the audio buffer of my phonogene eurorack module. the make noise phonogene is a digitally re-envisioned version of the musique concrète phonogene, a tape-based instrument designed by jacques poullin and used by composer pierre schaeffer. the sample was processed exclusively by the modular synthesizer during a two-day solo improvisation session, resulting in several recordings, one of which is reproduced here with minor edits.

oscillographics by akirasrebirth
made with a modified vectrex monitor and modular eurorack synth. The titles are created with vector rescanning technique using the visual cortex module by LZX-Industries. The rest of the video are Lissajous patterns created using a quadrature LFO and a function generator. For the modulation I used a Roland Scooper module with a custom virtual patch.
