Default Numerology Special Tricks

Obviously, a lot can be achieved with Numerology.

What are your most special tricks with Numerology? What are techniques that you are proud of? What special techniques would you like to share with new users (like me)?

This thread is inspired by the 'Octatrack Special Tricks' thread in the Elektron forum: that ended up in a very useful list of inspiring ideas.

To start the discussion, the coolest technique I discovered so far is to let a LFO control the first step in a (gate or mono) sequence, while another LFO or sequencer frequently shifts the sequence to the right. Let this trigger slices in a sliced drum loop and you get crazy drum grooves in an instant.

What do you have to share?

Hmm, a few go-to options for me:

- For any Note Sequencer, set the rate mode to Speed and control-click it to modulate with an 8 step Mod Seq. Ditto w/ ratio, where the numerator is set to 8 and the denominator is modulated.

- Put an LFO on a sound something -- filter cutoff, sample pitch, etc. Set the LFO unit type to "wide", and then modulate that with an 8 step Mod Seq.

... in both of the above cases, map all 8 steps of the mod seq to some controller....

- Random Jump, frequently...

My N4 projects are rarely without:

Param-modding signals as the x & y targets of Triple XY modules, using their glide functionality to apply slew to the signal.

Building sequenced logic stuff with the S&H Shift Register, Binary Op modules, sequenced/logic controlled audio & CV Switches, and Gate Sequencers.

Using all of the CV busses and CV In/Out modules to "stealthily" transport control signals between stacks.

Similary, using the Audio Out module (in InputOutput category) for Audio routing beyond each stack's 8 main aux outputs (which can of course be remapped per stack) and tapping aux audio off before each stack's primary output.

Putting a Pan & Volume before each audio Stack's output so I can trim the channel's gain before it reaches the stack's main volume control. This lets me keep as much of the main volume control's range usable for gain tweaks.
