Weeklyish Patch 25 – Tap Sequence

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.

Weeklyish Patch 22 – Formant Shift0r

Formant Shift0r - GLadOS will be jealous

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.

Weeklyish Patch 18 – M-S Encoder/Decoder

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.

Weeklyish Patch 17 – Freezeverb

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.

Weeklyish Patch 15 – Feedback Theory Synth

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.
