Ensemble to scramble sample slices of unequal lengths?
it is years since I have dipped my toe into the amazing depths of the reaktor user library. Is anyone aware of an ensemble that can do the following?
Take a sample with slices of unequal lengths (e.g., a sample chopped by peak detection) and play all the slices back in a different order, but each at its correct length, one right after the other?
This means the slices can't just be triggered by an internal or external sequencer, because that would make them all the same length. They would either get truncated if they're longer than the sequencer resolution, or a gap would appear after the slice if it's shorter.
If I haven't explained this clearly LMK. Here's a slightly silly example of what I'm hoping to do. If you imagine the melody "happy birthday to you", the notes are (if I give them each one letter per beat)
I want to chop that at the note onsets, and then be able to scramble it up somehow and play back variations including things like
and so on. (In my dreams, I can noodle some parameter and produce lots of variations quickly.)
You will also note that with what I am hoping to do, all of the variations come out to be exactly the same length.
Please LMK if some mad scientist has built something like this and posted it to the user library.. Thanks. I have tried searching for "sample slice scrambler" and the like but there are so many options that I can't tell if what I'm hoping for is out there already or not.
When I think of trying to build something like this myself, the issue of how to play each sample one time only, but in a random order, seems like the kind of thing that would be very easy to do in a programming language like lisp. But otherwise possibly very difficult. Any thoughts about that would be welcome also.
Thanks everybody and as always the generous creators who post their stuff to the user library have my admiration and respect.
Hard to say exactly.. can point you in some directions but there are many more besides to experiment with and try.
Listen to the audio example here
Also, very powerful - severely underrated instrument. Too many to name like this..
Here's a new one just got announced today with peak detector and granular.. hard to know if it will do what you're seeking though. Have to play around..2
These all look really cool and I can't wait to try them. Thanks!0
Cool here's a few more.. also I'm using CrusherX quite a bit these days - Highly recommend that as well
In the World of Grains
Some more ensembles for you to peruse..
Live Audio Looper
Grain Resynth Sampler
Anyways just wanted to show there's a wormhole here if any noobie stumbles onto this thread.. no shortage of granular goodness in Reaktor. I could go on and on...
Don't forget ScannerXT, FORM with Paules live input mod, etc..3
Exiannyc,, just recieved a message from the blue spacemonkey on Mount Vapor... he highly reccomends the Polihenge Gen.1
Thank you Cal for passing that message along! I hope you and he are all doing well.0
Not so great to be honest, a bit sad as my U.F.O. got stolen! So at this stage its best looking forward. Hope your ok.
I might have another sample scrambler for you, its not in the U/L yet. Gonna check it out and see.1
Rick Scott's jitter
and my birdy version
This one is cool if you want layered samples overlapping.2
Oh boy thank you paule and cal1
It's spring time. You can communicate to the birds outside of your window use exotic birds.1
