Synthpler is a 3 oscillator synth built using Live’s Simpler and FX. Very simple design, but extremely versatile, specially if you dig into its guts.

It’s been a while since I uploaded a new live rack, but I guess that’s why it’s called “weeklyish”.
This time I’ve built a M-S encoder and decoder. What it does is take a stereo signal, which is encoded in Left and Right channels, and encode it as Mid and Side allowing for separate processing of each and preventing some phase problems that can occur when processing a stereo signal.

It’s always “more distortion” or “more cowbell”, but no one ever asks for more reverb. How sad.
Well, if you are with me on this, here’s a reverb fix for you. This week’s rack uses Live Reverb’s Freeze function to generate the decay, allowing super long reverb tails and endless reverb when cranking the Decay all the way up. Also, it adds a M/S EQ for fine control of every aspect of your reverb’s tone.

Feedback Theory Synth is a rack created off a sample of a DJ mixer fed back into itself (tone snob note: a Stanton SA3 fed back into itself).
Here’s part of a tutorial by the Scratch Perverts where Prime Cuts explains how to setup a mixer for feedback.
What the Stereo Reverb does is split the signal into L and R channels and process each with its own reverb. It then adds an M/S EQ to allow independent tone control between the reverb’s center and its sides.
