EDIT 16/11/13 – I have recently found out the http://www.image-line.com have a series of plugins named ‘Toxic’ most recently I believe is the ‘Toxic Biohazard‘, which although I haven’t tried it out, does look pretty impressive. I’m removing the references to this as ‘Toxic Synth’ to avoid any confusion. I want to apologise to http://www.image-line.com for this, at the time of posting I was unaware of the line of ‘Toxic’ plugins/instruments and hope that I have not caused any offence, confusion or problems. If I have missed any references to this as ‘Toxic Synth’ then please contact me and I will do what I can to change this.
Here’s another of my Max 5 patches – this time an 8 note polyphonic synthesiser.
This synth is divided into 10 main sections – Carrier, Partials, FM (level1), FM (level 2), AM, Envelope, Delay, Distortion, Filters and Reverb. 3 minor sections allow for access to presets, selection of input device, and control of dac and master output volume.
I have recently built a Max/Msp patch that I was hoping to use in Logic 9. The patch is a 16 Voice Polyphonic AM/FM Synthesizer, and I wanted to send MIDI information from Logic to Max and the audio from Max to Logic. Since Cycling74 saw fit to remove the Pluggo capability from Max I had to find an alternative method for using my patch in Logic. After searching the internet and help files I found out how to do this. (more…)
As I’ve said previously, I’m not one for pirating software, but am an advocate for free or open source software. Here is a link to another great glitch plugin for Logic. Livecut is based on the algorithms programmed by Nick Collins for the Supercollider class ‘BBCut’. I found the parameters less intuitive than in the plugins I previously mentioned (SuppaTrigga and Buffer Override), but the overall effect is much more polished and produces better sounding glitchyness.
The plugin can be downloaded for free at http://mdsp.smartelectronix.com/livecut/.
The following track was produced by myself using a combination of Livecut, Suppatrigga and Buffer Override.
‘Tech Cult Vigil’
Found this on Youtube and love it!!
A friend recently recommended i watch some of this guy’s video’s. I did and it instantly reminded me of some of the animations i have posted recently, exept this is no animation….. this is the real deal! Amazing stuff from ‘Felix’s Machine’s’ Many more videos on youtube so get watching them!!!
As promised here’s a demo of my Max/Msp patch in action. Still a couple of glitches, but pretty happy with it so far.
