Patch of the Day

Starting September 1, Darwin Arts will be releasing one new Trilobite patch more or less daily for free download, leaving no more than seven patches on this front page at any one time.  After 64 days, we’ll publish the featured patches together as a single bank available for Trilobite 0.9.3 users, and then possibly continue the program depending on public demand. Your own contributions are more than welcome!

Breakage Hits

by Later Days

POD_20141002 (1)

Child of Death Race.  This strange patch, once you get the parameters right, will jump forward out of the staticky background and break the plate glass cage protecting you.  Rather unsettling.
Keep parameter 0 at slightly less than 50%.

Uuloo Fly
by Later DaysPOD_20141001 (3)
A Child of Death Race, this one uulates in a rather worried way, while moving about you in stereo.  Leave parameter 7 down most of the time, but bring it up occasionally to scare the patch into silence.

It’s as simple as that:  A nice knocking sound.  Parameters will change timbre.  Editing patch to map parameter 6 to knocking rate.

Death Race

by Later Days

POD_20140929 (5)

Yet _another_ interesting child of Speaker of the Hive, with a few extra routes added after breeding.  Could be a very promising progenitor patch for your own future generations on its own.

POD_20140928 (4)

Another immediate child of “Speaker of the Hive”, with very little post-natal modification.
Those are wild-grown porcini mushrooms in the metadata image, by the way.  Yes, there is a breakfast fetish theme in my work.

Rez Horns

by Later Days

POD_20140927 (3)

A deeply resonant offspring of Speaker of the Hive, evolved but lightly modified for extra internal routes and parameter mappings.  There are a few good parameter combinations which will get this thing to really speak…but you have to find them.

Speaker of the Hive

by Later Days

POD_20140926 (3)

An extended and enhanced version of “Feeding Time” from the Demonstration Patches bank, with additional series biquads added for more tonal control, and a glottal pulse modulator (Parameter 8) for vague speech-like effect when pulled very low.

Contact us using the contact form or the forums if you would like to have one of your own patches featured. We’ll post your patch like those above, with your metadata intact. For information on loading individual patch files into Trilobite, see the user guide.
