Triadex Muse (1972)
Computer Musica Synthesizer
MIT (Edward Fredkin / Marvin Minsky)

 

Rare algorithmic music generator based on a single oscillator with visual vintage sequencer.

Very limited machine moslty used for random notes generation, but quite a piece of story

generator
computer for people

info SEQUENCER no display nor keyboard. Just a main panel 12 sliders and 2 tab switches for notes edit. Some green indicator light, very eye-candy!

Back panel terminal connectors with molex:
- audio out with possibile dedicated amplifier module
- sync IN/OUT with other unit
- connector for dedicated Visual unit "light show"


edit TECH Monophonic manchine. The internal sound generation is based on a single VCO with square shape. It is not possible to modify the sound in any manner but some basic controls on the sequencer.

square wave  



editSEQUENCER internal digital logic circuits (eatly computer based) to produce a sequence of notes based on the settings of various parameters. There are 4 basic controls for the MUSE:

controls

- Volume sets the overall gain

- TEMPO sets the sequencer frequency speed

- PITCH sets the coarse tuning

- FINE PITCH sets the fine funing

- REST is for note pause




 

edit SYNC The sequencer can be sets to 3 modes:

sync

- AUTO uses internal clock with random generation

- STEP step by step (can be synched using EXTERNAL TAB daisy chaining with other unit)

- HOLD plays and freezes to actual STEP

 


edit
SEQUENCER PROGRAMMING called the "COMPOSER SECTION- The three regions of the "Muse" generate 1 and 0 in slightly different ways. The On-Off region is the simplest. The "Off" position is always in the zero state, while the "On" position is always in the one state. The positions in the Count region shift between zero and one states in the following manner.

programming

editAfter starting the"Muse", C1 alternates between zero and one at each beat of the tempo clock. Thus, an Interval slide placed on C1 sees an alternate zero and one.

The C2 position is in the zero state for the first two beats of the tempo clock and then goes to the one state for the next two beats before returning to the zero state for the following two beats, etc, The C3 position is in the zero state for three beats of the tempo clock before switching to the one state for three beats.

C4, C6, and C8 operate in a similar manner. C1/2 is in the zero state for one half beat and then switches to the one state for the second half beat.



edit MEMORY no internal memory but panel. The manual reports some "preset" template sheets, listen to pferct rendered version:
