This video, via White Noises, takes a look at polyrhythmic sequencing with Euclidean Rhythms, using a Qu-Bit Pulsar Eurorack module.
The Euclidean algorithm is an ancient formula that computes the greatest common divisor of two given integers. It can be used to create a class of rhythms, Euclidean Rhythms, where beats are distributed as evenly as possible across the length of the sequence. Examples of Euclidean Rhythms are common in many types of music – ranging from the four-on-the-floor of dance music to West African bell patterns.
