The Probability Router Bundle - I tried it for a long time, I don't remember if it worked like that.
If I understood correctly, you should be able to do what you want with Probability Router 125. Route the gate signal to the input, the first output to whatever you wish the gate to trigger, and the second output to some dummy input. Route the same gate signal to PB125’s trigger input. Now set the probability with the two PROB sliders next to the outputs: When you set them to the same position (the position itself doesn’t matter), the signal has a 50% probability of going through. If you set the first probability value to two times the second value, the signal goes through 66.66% of the time, and so on. A slightly complicated way of doing it, but should work!

(This got me thinking... I couldn’t find a simple module with in and out jacks and a probability knob for the gate signal going through? If one really doesn’t exist, I could make it :) )

Based on your reverb demo in the video, seems to me that you are into such kind of Lexicon reverb? Which imho is not too far actually. To have something like OTO Bam in the VM environment is going to be awesome.
True, the reverb demo kind of resembles a huge modulated classic Lexicon. The early reflection part could use some work (well, the demo doesn’t really have any early reflections...), maybe some kind of diffusion thrown in... But it already sounds quite good with sustained sounds, transients can sound a little grainy in the beginning of the tail. Let’s see, might be cool to pack all that + other features inside a single module!

Signal in and out. Between these the probability knob with adjustable manually and from CV.
I would be glad to receive such a module! Thank you)

I can offer to do something like:

We could definitely do with more simple modules that do just one or two basic things like probabilistic switches or gates which we could then use to build other functionality.
I've been wanting a simple way to have a drum machine run a fill occasionally (every 4 or 8 bars randomly) and it's not as simple as I'd hoped to find a way to just mute the main drum sequence while the fill sequence plays and then unmute it after its done.
Coming from my event driven programming perspective I have to try and unlearn about 30 years of how I do things every day.

voltage modular suddenly instantly crashes ableton live 10 when rightclicking on modules tagged as DEMO, such as opened when loading polymode presets.
very weird. and really annoying...
Thanks for reporting this. This crash doesn't have anything to do with Ableton. It's a crash in Voltage Modular, caused by the situation where the module exists in your project but you don't actually own it, and the demo has expired. We're fixing this today and will have a new build of Voltage Modular available soon - with a new feature or two added, too! Thanks again for letting us know!

I am looking for a utility with probability. What do you recommend?

I want to take the signal from the gate sequencer and passed through a utility with a probability.

0% probability - no signal.
100% probability - the gate goes in true mode.

I tried Random tack - this does not work the way I want. https://store.cherryaudio.com/modules/random-task
I also tried the Random Seed - this does not work the way I want too. https://store.cherryaudio.com/modules/random-seed
The Probability Router Bundle - I tried it for a long time, I don't remember if it worked like that.
Probability Generator - no demo, I can not check. https://store.cherryaudio.com/modules/p ... -generator
Vult Quincunx - I could not understand how it can work with 100% probability https://store.cherryaudio.com/modules/vult-quincunx
If I understand you correctly the Probability Generator wil do excactly what you want. I use it a lot for rhythmic randomness. 0% and no trigger passes through, 25% probabilty and a random selecton of 25% of the trigger signals pass through etc. Sounds like what you'd want. I just tested it with a square LFO to make sure gates work as well as triggers.

True, that matches the description perfectly. Didn’t find it with a quick VM store search, but good to know one exists! Of course I already coded my own module with the same basic functionality, but well, no code is ever wasted, there will be some use for it later. :)

Gone soft, thank you! Yes, this is what I wanted! Unfortunately, there is no demo to try before you buy. Bought!

I would love a probability generator that works like the physics engine in Usine where objects collide with walls and each other at various speeds to generate notes

http://www.brainmodular.com/manuals/hh3 ... ics-engine
So this is great for making wind chime type patterns - is there anything in VM that can do that? Just random wouldn’t do it - you need to have something more physics based to allow for things like collision and rebound effects, velocity, inertia etc.

Not part of VM, and I think you already have this... but:

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to post a reminder that today, September 15th, is the final day of our Year Two Celebration sale. We really appreciate everyone's support. The Voltage Modular user community is absolutely fantastic, and it makes us want to dream up new features and push the capabilities of our platform even further. Thanks for your feedback, ideas, and inspiration.

Year Two sale details are available here:

https://cherryaudio.com/promos/cherry-a ... rsary-sale

We'll be releasing an update to Voltage Modular in a couple weeks with one or two really nice new features. In addition, Cherry Audio is growing, and we've got some big surprises planned for the rest of the year.. starting next week!

- Dan @ Cherry Audio

I bought in to VM in the current sale and my hot take is that y'all need to work on your store a bit. As far as I can tell you can't even filter or search by the (single, sometimes very general) module type. It's impossible to find anything without browsing the entire collection of modules or just picking from a couple of devs you know you like. For contrast, browse the VCVRack library and notice how easy it is to find the type of module you're looking for even though there's actually more stuff. More detailed tags, multiple tags per module, and more filters.

Well I did wind up spending $50 during the sale, to complete my vult bundles and for the new
Unfiltered Audio stuff, even though I have the vst versions as they are not as slick to use with VM. :lol:
