ok, finally got around to putting together a release of a project I’ve been working on…
heres is a quick YouTube video, which kind of shows what it does:
so what do we have…
really two bits of new technology
this is a new way for me to put parameters control into patches (initially PD), its aim is to improve things for both the patch developer and users, by providing a simple to use infrastructure.
for a user, they see a uniform UI, that allows pages parameters control, saving and loading of presets and midi learn of any parameter.
furthermore these parameters can be controlled remotely via OSC.
b) MEC (Micro expressive control)
this a project Ive been doing for a while, it allows controllers usually associated with computers to be used on ‘micro platforms’ , in particular the Madrona Labs Soundplane, and the Eigenharps from Eigenlabs.
However, I also extended it to the Push 2, and have integrated it with Kontrol.
this means, with MEC + Kontrol, you get expressive control of the Organelle, and also the ability to control all parameters from a Push 2 … as seen in the video
phew… so as part of this Ive released 3 things to patchstorage today:
Brds with Kontrol link , a new version of Brds with is controlled by Kontrol
eBrds with Kontrol link, a new version of Brds with is controlled by Kontrol, but also has expressive OSC input, which can be sent by MEC
these are all still very much under development, sp the preset files, and meta data files, osc messages are all subject to change… and i wont be providing backwards compatibility
(Id also recommend keeping the older brds version around, in a different folder)
