I know it’s been quiet lately, but here’s a bit of what I’ve been working on.
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.
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.
