Talko 1.2 are now in stock, both as kits and as assembled modules.

What’s new in version 1.2

– Rotary encoder for smoother Bank change
– Encoder’s button can be pressed to simulate the gate signal going HIGH and make the module speak.
– Mode selection via a 3 positions switch : Speech – Repeat – VCO
– Growling mode in VCO (turn the Bend pot fully CCW)

My first patches

Beyond having it to speak and bending it in (the obvious) Speech mode, I would recommend testing the Repeat mode by feeding some rhythmic pattern into the Gate entry and particularly playing with the Gate length.

Another fun one is to set it to Bank 0, VCO mode, turn the Bend pot fully CCW for growling mode and then play with the Sound, Pitch and Speed pots.

Try also to press the rotary button while the Sound entry is being sequenced in VCO mode to hold notes on and manually alter the sequence.
Do you have a nice patch to recommend ?
Thanks in advance for sharing
