This video, via SynthDad, takes a look at The Darkest Timeline 2.0, an app for the Hemisphere firmware for the Ornament & Crime multi-function synth module.

The Darkest Timeline is a complex sequencer which can do MIDI to CV and CV to MIDI conversion as well.

Video Summary:

“In this tutorial, I explain what Darkest Timeline is, how it works, and how to use it in patches. I’ll also show how you can use it to record CV from other modules or from a keyboard like the Arturia Keystep, and even to send MIDI into a DAW. There’s a lot to cover!”
