I know it’s been quiet lately, but here’s a bit of what I’ve been working on.
New track up!
This one’s been lying around for a year or so waiting to be finished. It finally has.
So, it’s that time of the year again, and as a small way of saying thank you for your support and time, here’s a brand new track. I really hope you enjoy it, and please pass it around if you do.
Tap Sequence lets you program a list of notes, then trigger each one sequentially each time the rack receives any MIDI note. This lets you, for example, play full melodies with a single drum pad, adding natural variation and timing. It also uses the Scale plug-in for easy melody transposition.

It’s been really quiet around here, but it doesn’t mean nothing is happening. Au contraire, things have been quite busy underground getting the foundation for the album done. Yes, that means the first Unit27 album is coming, and it’s going in quite a different direction than the music I’ve done in the past.
Working on an album on your own is really hard as stuff moves much slower than with a band because you’re wearing everyone’s hat. Also, there’s the constant struggle with the urge to show your work as soon as you feel you’ve accomplished something. I’m awful at that one, so here’s a little experiment: If you can’t fight it, join it.
These are preview versions of some tracks I’ve been working on since January. They’re not finished yet, but are now at a point where they represent very well where I’m trying to go with this album. Please spare a few minutes, take a listen and maybe post whatever is on your mind. What you like, what you don’t so much, your feedback will be really helpful to shape the album.
Hope you enjoy.
This is the rack the robots will use to talk through (along with some vocoding) while tearing through earth once Skynet becomes self aware.
Formant Shift0r splits the incoming signal into 4 bands, then allows for independent pitch shifting of each. It comes in 2 flavors:
Parallel – allows for independent pitch shifting of each band.
In-line – pitch shifts each band relative to the previous band’s setting.

The greatest invention since sliced audio! Scratch, Beat Juggle and Reverse your audio output using only Ableton Live’s built in plug-ins (Simple Delay, Looper and Racks).
Thanks to Clist for the inspiration with his Beat Lookup Reaktor Patch and mike@TrackTeam Audio for showing what is possible with the new Live 8 delays.
