Random Looping Sequencer

September 26, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here’s a demo of the Random Looping Sequencer DIY module. This patch features the RLS’ seq out multed to uscale in and envelator gate in. envelator out to borg 1… borg out to mixer and into camera. The sound source is the uncle & anti osc tripple wave folded and filtered with the z2040 and ems synthi filter clone.

The Random Sequencer is a circuit that produces random control voltages. These can be completely random, or they can be locked into loops that repeat every 8, 16 or 32 steps. It was inspired by the long history of shift register pseudorandom synth circuits, including the Triadex Muse, Buchla 266 Source of Uncertainly, Ken Stone’s gated comparator and Grant Richter’s Noisering. This circuit includes a transistor noise generator, so should create true random binary sequences. However, the structure of the sequencer and the nature of the digital-to-analog converter used seem to give a particular character – tones that rise and fall in a particular way.

August 1, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This is the introductory tutorial for Loopy, the live-looper for iOS: Recording the first track, count-in, tempo and clock length controls and track-twisting.

Product description:
This is a looper that’ll come out to play, but get down to work when you want to get serious.  While other music creation apps tend to be either powerful but difficult to learn, or easy to use but limited in features, Loopy doesn’t compromise. Loopy offers a sleek, expressive, instantly understandable interface that beginners can start using effectively straight away. It’s fun, right from the start. More advanced users, however, will not be disappointed by Loopy’s rich feature set, with extra features many other loopers just don’t have. Plus, a sophisticated interactive tutorial system lets users discover Loopy’s more advanced features at their own pace.

- Drag a track onto another track to merge tracks, and clear up a space.

Live Looping with a MIDI Fighter 3D and Ableton Live

July 2, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A live looping improv jam performed on a DJ TechTools “MIDI Fighter 3D.” No phrases or pre-reocrded loops were used. Only single notes are being triggered from an instance of NI’s Kontakt for drums, and three separate instances of NI’s Massive for the bass, lead, and polyphonic synth. The bank-select buttons at the top of the unit selects the proper instrument in Ableton Live.

Tilting the unit to the right controls a low-pass filter on the synths. A backward tilt controls the resonance on those filters, and tilting the unit forward controls modulation/vibrato. The side buttons are controlling Ableton’s loopers, and are also used to engage the master filter at the end of the song.

Lemur on the iPad is being used to clear loops and control reverb and delay on all four instruments.

GlitchLoops from Sunsine Audio for GlitchBreaks

June 29, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

“Around the late 40s the atom was split… We discovered that everything was forever changed, when we discovered the word could be cut up, that sound could be cut up. That everything having to do with culture could be cut up and reassembled in ways that didn’t exist before. That will be seen as the most radical, important thing that happened this century” – Genesis P Orridge, Modulations

GlitchBreaks from Alex Matheu is a powerful iOS loop manipulation tool. Anyone who has seen, heard or played with it can vouch for its quality and flexibility. It puts buffer override, scrubbing, beat-juggling, and pitch and time stretching all within the palm of your hand, cheaply.

Nice live looping improvisation jam

June 13, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Rheyne in a nice session featuring lots of nice controllers, synths and pads, enjoy

Live looping improv jam using analog keyboards, USB controllers, and iOS devices. iPads are running Animoog, Lemur, and SoundPrism Pro. SP Pro is triggering NI’s Massive through an iConnectMIDI. A DJ TechTools MIDI Fighter 3D is controlling loopers, drums, and a monophonic synth. Its rotation is mapped to filters and vibrato. Normally my drums are played on an Akai MPD26, but wanted to get used to the MF3D for a portable live rig. An Akai APC20 and Novation Launchpad are controlling the recording and playback of loops in Ableton Live. The DSI MoPho, Fender Rhodes, and Moog Prodigy are all running through a PreSonus 1818VSL connected to a Macbook Pro. All loops are recorded live.
