Temporal Patch Morphing for the PreenFM2
« on: November 02, 2017, 12:49:50 AM »
Hi all,

I'm currently working on a Temporal Patch Morpher for the PreenFM2, similar to my TX81z Patch Degrader (https://audiocookbook.org/tx81z-patch-degrader-with-interpolation/), but better because of greater value ranges within NRPN and the PreenFM2 handles much faster streams of MIDI data (also 6 ops and 12 mod matrix slots! -- so far I'm only using the first four).

It's essentially a Max4Live patch that interpolates parameter values. This happens over time units that can either sync to Ableton Live, or be free running between 15 and 2000ms. Virtually every parameter can be included in the morphing, or left out via a checkbox. I've been getting some really incredible results using this thing, so I'll share some sounds in the near future, and perhaps the patch once it's finished.

Here's a screenshot of the work-in-progress to give you a rough idea of what it does. More soon!

Cheers!

John

As promised... Here's 17 minutes of the PreenFM2 doing it's thing while connected to my patch. I mixed a few different takes in and out for variety and added some reverb and sweetening in post. All the panning was handled by the patch. Essentially a single chord is played repeatedly while the parameters are morphed. Many simultaneously on multiple threads. I adjusted which parameters were being morphed and the morph rate as the recordings were being made. Listen for sweeping frequencies, panning, and modulation (I used four of the mod slots). Most of the time I had the filter off but I enabled in a few times. You'll hear the crusher, LP, HP, etc. I also experimented with leaving the operator waveforms as sine wave and them allowing them to change. I have all six user waveforms configured in my PreenFM2. Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing, that's a nice project with the Morpher.
These are interesting sound coming out from it.

That was nice to hear the preenfm2 in some of your other tracks :)

Cheers, Xavier! It has been a distinct pleasure and privilege to experiment with the PreenFM2. I'm convinced there's a lot yet to mine from it. Especially with all the updates and improvements you've been applying!
