I spent the morning setting up a 6 channel MIDI controlled sample based drum machine for Organelle~
It is named after John French ‘Drumbo’ a member of the magic band who i was introduced to in college with my fascination and love for the american painter and composer Don Van Vliet AKA Captain Beefheart. My Eurorack rigs are named “the trout mask replicant” and the zoot horn. SO anyway i started working on this in different areas [addressing the six channels without using a dozen menu pages and loading files from folders without users having to rename dozens and dozens of files. In addition i have been working on a sample player loader that has a “crown” array that removes annoying clicks at the end of sound files and can play backward and at variable speeds for tuning.
I chose 6 because that will give use a nice variety and posiibly two effect channels which we can arrive at based on feedback from users
In addtion, i have spent a HUGE amount of time making this MIDI tempo “READY” meaning i want to add a simple midi tempo adjustment on it so users can sync this seamlessly to their existing setups.
With this I ask again [i can;t seem to find the thread where i asked about MIDI tempo. Does someone have a link for the BEST midi tempo abstraction that i can look at? I have done a bunch of math but i would really like to have it fit midi wise into the C&G family of patches without too much wailing and gnashing of teeth.
I am also thinking about creating a sample loader that would sample from external sources and enable anything to become a drum, The skeleton is complete and i am ready so please forgive the re -ask but if i don’t see any really usable code i am going to default to one of the latest C&g masterpieces like the argeggiating sequencer for my midi stuff
