All in one setup incorporating many different modules/effects. For monome64, arc2, iPad, and Softstep.
DESCRIPTION AND OVERVIEW
The Party Van is a live sampling and performance instrument built using Max/MSP. It was programmed around the Monome 64 and Arc 2 controllers but includes mapping for an iPad running TouchOSC (custom layout included) as well as the Keith McMillen Softstep foot controller. Additionally, the patch has MIDI learn functionality built in, so every parameter can be mapped to any MIDI controller*.
*Due to the way I programmed the GUI buttons, things that are mapped to the Monome/ TouchOSC don’t reflect changes made when using MIDI learn. This only really impacts things if you are planning on using a MIDI controller AND a Monome/iPad to controller the same GUI buttons. If controlling different things there are no problems.
THE PARTY VAN INCLUDES SOME OF THE FOLLOWING:
-A variety of samples/loopers oriented towards live performance -Granular, concatenative, and convolution based synthesis on recorded buffers -Buffer-based and real-time audio analysis used to dynamically generate intelligent presets -Input/output effects -Input stage convolution and amp simulation -8-bit sampler/looper based on the ciat-lonbarde Cocolase instrument -Virtual CD skipping module based on “The Chocolate Grinder”, another one of my patches -Attack-based sampling and triggering of effects -Several soundfont and synthesis-based playback instruments
There is no quantization. And all the modules play really nicely together. You can start recording a loop while in slicing mode, or switch between grain/normal and start where you left off, or record every knob wiggle in the pattern recorder, or reverse while creating your original loop etc…
This patch is an ongoing project for me. It is currently in a beta state as far as what I want, but each module is tested and working pretty solidly.
