Bode Frequency Shift Sequencer V1.0

A Bode Frequency Shifter adds a frequency offset to the audio input signal, similar to ring modulation, but with only one sideband present (single-sideband ring modulation).

The freqshift~ module gives both the lower sideband and the upper sideband as seperate outputs. The lower and upper sideband, or a mix thereof resulting in ringmodulation, can be selected independently for the left and right channel. The output can be modulated. This sequencer is very useful to manipulate drum loops.

PChainSelector V1.0

This device was primarily designed for selecting the playing style (mid, edge slap, between, knuckle) by relative probability of the Pan Drum (Live Pack, Soniccouture). At each incoming midi note (see screenshot) a random number between 0 and 100 is generated (arrow below the multislider) and the corresponding chain (mid, edge slap, between, knuckle) set by the multislider is used. The Strike dial controls the chain selector of the Pan Drum.

You can use this also for other chain selectors or parameters of other instruments. By clicking the Pan Drum button the device will change in a generic mode. You can manualy adapt the five outputs to the parameter of your choice. This generic mode is applied when you load the device.

PVelocity V1.1

Changes the velocity of an incoming note by probability.

Probability dial: Probability of the velocity change of the incoming note.

Range dial: The range of of the possible velocity change (0-Range dial value). A value from this range is sampled randomly.

Symmetry dial: How a value from the Range is applied to the velocity of the incoming note. Dial full left: Range is substracted from the incoming note. Dial full right: Range is added to the incoming note.

VFader V1.0

Velocity Fader (VFader) is a small utility to fade the velocity of incoming notes from an MIDI clip. Especially for sampled acoustic instruments, with multiple velocity layers, fading the velocity gives a more natural sound than fading the volume.

The velocity of the incoming note is multiplied with the factor indicated by the slider. Velocities larger as 127 will be limited to 127, smaller as 1 will be limited to 1. The off notes are filtered out.
