Modules for the Orac


#83

Nice modules! getting some neat sounds with buffrshufflr.

It looks like clockswingx is sending 0 to ‘master-bpm’ , so seqsync cant determine the right BPM.
There are some divide ( [/ ] ) objects with no second inputs before the outlets of the metro subpatch that might be causing that.

I’ll think about the velocity control for polystep, I do like having it as one knob for original/override though.
One workaround would be to record the sequence with the input velocity override set to 1


#84

hey thx for the ideas, also, wow, the new orac modules, excited to try these!
The play/stop is great to have, I’m not always the best with timing though, so to bring in a part to line up with another sequencer, it’s safer for me to just bring it in via a volume control.
I’ll have to try the polystep+seq sync :smiley:


#85

ohhhhhh I didn’t realize that the 0 was “preserve record velocity” and the rest of the values basically erase your recorded velocity. Would it be hard to add a master volume parameter?

what I’m actually doing as a workaround is using the note thru on/off (in the router) from polystep module, but sometimes if I turn it off at the wrong time I’m left with ‘hanging notes’

recording w input velocity at 1 is also a good workaround - for this particular circumstance though I’m using the record velocity to create dynamics for the part

edit: I just realized I wasn’t thinking very clearly as a master volume won’t work before there’s any audio :man_facepalming: - it makes a whole lot more sense to add a volume parameter to the thing being sequenced


#86

Ive replaced buffershufflr, spectralwarper, glassfm and clockswingx with new versions. Sorry for the false start folks, the fx patches now have a sweet crossfade, glassfm has a proper transpose parameter and clockswing now works as it should.
Thanks for your help and awesome patches @WyrdAl


#87

Putting it out there as I’m not that advanced on pd, but would be great to have LFO Delay done for orac. The manipulation options with both LFOs and especially the fact you can assign and record sequences with altering feedback values makes it to me the best delay patch on the organelle (by far).

If anyone fancies having a go, would be superb :–)


#89

https://github.com/Wannop/wannoporacmodules/blob/master/F-lfodelay.zip

Added it just now @Vasco, let me know if there are any problems.

Edit: the LFOdelay patch has no internal sequencer now, but just place any sequencer module ahead of it e.g. Polybeats, polystep, seq2, seqsync


#90

I think it would be cool to make a kinda reverb equivalent to this. Maybe like the first octave could be reverb size and the second octave… dry wet? (or some kind of pan L to R for the wet signal) Would freeverb be a good choice to work with?


#91

Whaat, wasn’t expecting such a quick reply :–) Thanks so much!!

By the way – i know how to install .zop modules on the orac, but not .zip ones, what’s the trick?

Not a big reverb user, so not sure what the best one is. But I agree, think it’s a good effect technique in general to add to processing effects. Makes the outcome a lot less ‘square’.


#92

You just have to unzip the patch with your computer and drop the file in ORAC folder.


#93

I like what aphex twin did with ‘t69 collapse’ which features a lot of automated reverb shrinking and expanding kinda sounds.
Any users know of a good spring reverb pd patch to use in another version?


#94

Yeah, that reverb idea would be nice.

I guess it would also be cool to somehow be able to manipulate the effect sequence order so it’s not always the high frequency sounds that get the maximum processing/feedback/wetness, not sure how to accomplish that though…maybe another page within the effect module to allow for some editing/manipulation of it?

Just tried the LFO delay on orac. Beautiful, thanks again.

Here is The Constant Gardener Patch for Orac.

#96

Yeah, that reverb idea would be nice

Well, it’s ready now!


#97

I has some time to play around on some of these modules. WOW! putting the LFO stuff on GlassFM was a fantastic idea, as are all those LFO additions!

Amazing stuff! Keep going!


#98

Thanks! The lfos in glassfm were actually @rawticks handiwork, but i did add lfos to just about anything i could. I think they make a big difference in the MI patches. Looking forward to @thetechnobear’s 1.1 update with modulation modules, which might render my lfo updates redundant :slight_smile:
I’m going to focus on using the keys for modulation of parameters in a bunch of new effects modules i think. I like sudden, drastic sonic changes sometimes.


#99

is there currently any live audio monitoring / input S module for Orac?
