Chance Delay 30:27


The Tone Science Chance Delay module is the second design collaboration between electronic musician/composer Ian Boddy & AJH Synth.

This track is a solo ambient modular soundscape from Ian Boddy showcasing the features of this module. Clocking in at just over 30 minutes it shows Boddy using the Chance Delay to organically play with time and randomness. Fundamentally this module can govern the chance that an event will occur or not but it can also be used in a myriad of rhythmically interesting ways, as well as to go outside the boundaries of it’s initial design intention by mutating and transforming audio signals. This latter use is most noticeable in the opening section which features a massive, doom laden drone that eventually gives way to a peaceful, ambient section of sparse notes and tones. The middle section features two interlocking sequencers where Boddy uses two Chance Delays to constantly change their rhythmic relationships. A beautiful chordal patch from the Moog Matriarch is further chopped and filtered by these same Chance Delays to create a constantly changing tapestry of sound. The track finally fades to another slowly looping section with low chance settings triggering the occasional notes that slowly fade away into the distance.

The Chance Delay can perform as a Chance generator, but is also capable of pulse stretching for Trigger to Gate conversion, pulse shortening for Gate to Trigger conversion, Gate Delay, Sub Bass Generation and also "divide by n" clock division.

There is a wide range of control and all functions can be operated manually from the front panel or can be automated using external CV voltages. Chance can range between 0 to 100%. The Gate out can be delayed by anywhere between from 0.5mS to 30 Seconds, and the output Pulse length can also vary from 0.5mS to 30 Seconds.

The TRIG push button allows manual triggering of pulses, also determined by the Chance control, and a green LED shows the output pulse status.

Includes a handy "Gate pass through" mode; when the Length control is set to zero the incoming pulse or trigger will still be determined by the Chance and Delay controls, whilst the outgoing gate length will be the same as the incoming gate length.

Compact 8hp form factor and very low power consumption make this an excellent addition to any Eurorack system.
