|Description:||SpectreGadget - Pitch shift (autotune) anything without destroying the time.
Check out WoFO - Wobble the @#$# out of anything
It's been less than a week since I released WoFO, and now I'm going to drop another game changing patch on your asses.
It annoys the @#$# out of me that when you pitch shift in most samplers, the speed of the sample changes along with the pitch. Why?
Anyway, I have the solution. It's called SpectreGadget. It uses Fast Fourier Transform which affects the spectral harmonics of the sound to change the pitch of the note rather than just increasing the frequency. For those ignoramuses who haven't heard of "the most important numerical algorithm of our lifetime", you can read this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fast_fourier_transform.
Essentially, you can take any sample (or synth) that has harmonic qualities and play it like an instrument with your midi keyboard, or by writing a midi clip. However, the timing of the sample never changes. It will stay exactly in time.
There are two patches. The transposer simply changes the pitch of the note. You could use this individually for something else if you'd like. The note remote simply takes the current midi note being played and sends it to the transposer. It couldn't be simpler.
Here is a video of what's going to happen to you after you download this patch:
-Drag a sample that has harmonic qualities in to an audio track or in to a Simpler/Sampler instance (you can use a synth if you really want to)
-Add the SpectreGadget - Transposer to the track.
-Add the SpectreGadget - NoteRemote to an empty midi track.
-Arm the midi track
-Click the Learn button
-Go to the Audio track and click on Transpose (it should go grey)
-Hit notes on the keyboard
Note: You should use a sample recorded at C3 if possible. If you are using a Sampler, the sample should be played at C3. If your original sample is not at C3, you can use a Midi Utility ***BEFORE*** NoteRemote in the chain to tune the note. If you have tuning issues, please email me.
Note: This is currently monophonic. If you want harmony, you will have to break the notes up in to separate tracks. If you find a better way to add harmony, please email me.
Note: You can use this an autotuner. Autotune yourself stupid.
Note: Monolake's Granulator is a great one to play around with this.
Once again, now that you've taken my hard work and ingenious patch design skills, I command you to listen to my music and give me feedback so I can finally finish this album off:
***Hey MaxForLive guys! Over here! Hire me to make patches and write code for you. I've made two kick-ass patches in less than a week and I'd never even used synth building platform before that.***
