Granular synth / time stretching rack [Sampler, 8.1]

Post by garyboozy » Tue Dec 07, 2010 2:55 pm

here's the latest version of my VeloStretch rack for Live 8/Sampler.

Image

new v4 of my Sampler timestretcher/granulator polyphonic synth rack!
been a year, so thought i'd revisit this rack and try to figure a nicer Grain Spray. figured it out, works great!

the Spray Amount dial now gives you full control of the grainspray, rather than the old way of it flipping between 3 preset values.
much nicer sound as a result. let me know your thoughts!

get it for free...

Hi GaryBoozy !
I listened your demo on youtube... and it sounds really really amazing !!
... i downloaded it , and put it in my Instrument Rack Preset folder , but it's impossible for me to load it in a Midi Track... :cry:

I work on Suite 8, and when i try to load Velostretch3 , it's like if the .adg file was damaged (Live say me this in bottom of the screen, in orange color).

Have you got an idea of what problem can be ?

Thanks

i'm pretty sure you need Live 8.1.3 or later to load the file.

some tips:
try setting the 'scan' macro to 64. in that position the sample playback is frozen.
with the 'spray' set to 1, you get a continuous smooth tone.

you can tell which 'spray' mode is on by looking at Sampler's Modulation tab, where there are 3 lights.
as you adjust the 'spray 0/1/2' macro knob, you'll see these lights go from off, to 1, to 2.


also made a different rack for extra long paulstretch-style stuff

Hi garyboozy, i'm very interesting in your granular synthesis instrument but i don't know how to download it anymore (maybe the download link is expired or something).
:(

Your synth is fun!

I wanted to add that you can make it yet a little more expressive by using assigning the mod wheel to 'sample offset' in Sampler, and putting the 'amount' at a low value. It makes it so that you can scan the waveform manually:)
