The Cocoquantus integrates well with the main synthesizer. All I need is cables with a phone plug on one end and an alligator clip on the other. In the patch for this recording the audio and CV all originate in the Quantussy, the cluster of five oscillators. Two of them provide the audio, which is patched first into a CGS Tube VCA to generate more harmonics, and then through a MOTM-480 VCF, then through an Oakley Cycling ADSR/VCA and back into one of the COCO delays. There are two of these routes, making for a stereo patch. Two more of the cocoquantus ‘oscirators’ are patched over to the frequency CV inputs of the MOTM-480. For this recording I didn’t use the feedback on the COCO delays, so that the result would be simple and clean. In essence, I used the cocoquantus as a cluster of oscillators. The aleatoric (random) quality comes by means of the chaotic interaction within the cocoquantus among the oscillators.
