BeatBrat: experimenting with beats AGAIN


#1

decidedly complex drums with euclidean math.
AUX buttons sample and whatnot from drum stream


#2

I’m afraid to say that I’m not getting any output from this one. the BEATBRAT.pd plays on my computer when I click it, but no output on the organelle.


#3

i don’t have my control organelle here this weekend so i cannot test. I am using an few wacky externals but i think they are included. It will have to wait til tomorrow until i can test on the blind one.

Does the menu show up?
There’s a full 8 pages of parameters it could be the MIDI i tried too, a whole bunch of test stuff the rest is vanilla so i am curios but alas


#4

the menu shows up okay and it receives midi tempo okay. just the sound is not firing up for some reason.


#5

I experimented with the mother desktop and I found something.

if I click in those five boxes to get Xs then the sound starts up. does that help?


#6

maybe it stripped a loadbang. might be a quick fix

lemme look

#7

maybe because the toggles were IN the canvas object, hmm always something new to learn i immediately thought it was some 48 thing and i was like oh fudge…

with a baseball bat

see if this guys autostarts properly. I have been having weird issues if i edit patches on different o/s windows seems to be making things unpredictable and more and more as i customize my playing organelle i have to remember the libs that’s why the essentialibs release will solve all my problems!! lolol


#8

yes! this autostarts okay! lots of ace sound comes out!

one thing is that it is LOUD. and even with the organelle volume turned right down there is still a beat coming out. it sounds as though the organelle volume control is turning the reverb higher and lower. I don’t know if this was your intention.


#9

kind of

because when you start turning the AUX buttons on/off it records interactively into a buffer and i am also testing a Schroeder Reverb which is working really well. You can sculpt some subsonic bass reverb flavors

hints: set the second euclid # to 4 or 2 at first

make sure AUx button 4 is off when recording a brat otherwise the tempo keeps it in time and it only reads the time buffer

to recprd a full pattern : aux button 1 and 2 ON + 4 off
After 2 & 4 four interactively to taste. pinch a salt, light on the meth

#10

right. okay. thanks.

I’m unsure if recording is happening tough. I tested on the desktop, looked at the brat section and I see the it should tabwrite ‘bande’ into a table when you hit record (then I guess it loops from there). that doesn’t seem to be happening. i may be wrong about this of course.


#11

you have to turn on Audio on. i am not supporting it on the computer because stuff won’t work that way bro


#12

it is NOT recording from an external source BTW it is recording the beat you are making
maybe that clarifies?
You are making a beat, then you are sampling snippets of it into a buffer and mixing that back in to the main “beat”

i need to go easier on the meds


#13

i see. thanks. i just looked on the computer to see what it was supposed to be doing.
