Math & Rhythm

Two outputs and five different rhythmic flavors multiply by a load of “algo-rhythmic” processing to result in a practically infinite number of polyrhythms. That’s the fundamental formula that produces the Knight's Gallop principle : a dual trigger generator providing sequences according to tables and modes.

The source tables contain patterns such as the Euclidean polyrhythms, and the modes allow the user manipulate and mangle those patterns according to different algorithms. As the module has two outputs, it is a very powerful instrument to create diversified and instantaneous polyrhythms.

Features

• Dual Output Trigger Generator

• Variable length sequences (up to 16 steps)

• Length and Pulse amount potentiometers and CV inputs

• Shift + & shift - buttons allowing to shift the sequence forward and backward

• Main mode (MN) providing a lot of utlity modes for the second output : reset, no shift, invert and reverse

• Compute mode (CP) calculating associated sequences for the second output delivering very musical polyrythm

• Random mode (RD) adding randomness on the second output sequence, 4 amounts of randomness determined by the sub mode

• Dual mode (DL) allowing to set the two outputs seperatly

• Record mode (RC) turning the Knight's Gallop into a “play your sequence on the buttons to record it” module

• Five different kind of tables for five different rythmic flavours : Divider Sequences, Classic Euclidean, Revised Euclidean, Anti Euclidean & Split Sequences

• User replaceable firmware chip

• Elektron style push buttons

• High quality metal potentiometers with double rubber injected knobs

• Skiff friendly (25mm deep)

• 8 HP Wide

Testimony

"The knight’s Gallop is a cool tool. Groovy and unusual patterns are easy to stumble upon. Moving around the tables, modes and sub-modes offers a lot of variety. I will be using it a lot."

Martin Gore - Depeche Mode, 2016
