I took a quick look at the Sinfonion…
the basics probably can be covered by sequencers (e.g. CART) and quanizer (SHQ), then just use offsets to get chords.
I will say, from what I read on the Sinfonion, kind of its point is to go beyond that… this is described pretty well in the manual, so I won’t repeat that , but essentially its the way it combines multi ‘streams’ that makes it quite interesting… maintaining musical relationships.
the other side is, the Sinfonion has a really large UI !
its supposed to be hands-on, so replicating with a lots of virtual buttons/knobs, would also kind of miss the point a bit.
I do have some ideas for modules in this area…
though for the above reason, id be unlikely to want to ‘emulate’ the Sinfonion, but rather something that uses similar concepts. but does things in a different way. there are also some interesting ideas also floating around in various vcvrack modules.
(that said, I think I might hold off on that until Ive created another module thats really required to make use of something like this)
I know, I’m talking in riddles… but Im not ready to commit to what these modules might be, or when I might prioritise them.
all that said…
I think with certain compromises, you can still patch something that gets you to similar places as Sinfonion.
and thats often the case… because these complex modules are hardware, then have to cover a variety of use-cases. but for every track you make you don’t need all of this flexibility, rather you use in one way.
so on the SSP you patch that use-case NOT the entire Sinfonion.
of course, every module brings its own pros/cons… so your ssp patch will influence the end result too - thats not necessarily bad.
frankly, what’s cool about patching your own preset on the SSP, is you get to put your spin on the idea… use your ideas for how things relate, and get creative
