Ornament & Crime

Ornament & Crime is a multifunction eurorack module, capable of quantizing, sequencing, LFOs and more.

It is a collaborative open-source project by Patrick Dowling (aka pld), Max Stadler (aka mxmxmx) and Tim Churches (aka bennelong.bicyclist)

This goal of this cheat sheet is to document the basic operation and I/O of each app. The full manual is linked from each app's page for the complete documentation.

CopierMaschine

Description

Quantizing 4-stage analogue shift register. Feed a pulse (clock, trigger) into the left-most digital input (TR1), and a CV signal (LFO, ADSR, etc) into the leftmost CV input (CV1). On receiving the clock, the DAC outputs will be updated.
