Mapping Festival 2014

 

Oh yes, you lucky people! I will be appearing at the Mapping Festival in Geneva this May to host a workshop on Modul8 module creation, with the one and only Gael Lupin (writer of the Modul8 Modules Manual).

We’ll be covering practically everything there is to know about making module for Modul8 and maybe some other treats too.

So, if you’re in the area and want to brush up your skills, or even gain some new ones, come join us. Places are limited so get your name down fast!

FULL DETAILS HERE!!

For those of you who have never experienced this festival, it truly is something to behold – a meeting of wonderful minds and an explosion of creativity and a little craziness of course.

Okay everyone, I’ve spent enough time on this now and it’s reached that lovely point of readiness. 0.6 is finally here!

Gener8-Logo-3d

Tons of updates and improvements. More bug fixes than I can remember.

It’s been nearly a year since the last release (where did all that time go?), and many of those hours have gone into refining almost every function of this module suite.

NEW FEATURES IN 0.6

  • Recordable and editable Timeline for clip changes.
  • Full native Novation Launchpad support.
  • Native Korg Nano control support.
  • Syphon input support.
  • Support for new Modul8 2.7 keywords.
  • Enhanced Scrub bar for stutter free scratching.
  • Clip transition auto-fade feature. (Available in the Editor preferences)
  • Improved BPM Tap functionality.
  • Option to disable Auto-Loop function during Logical Render. (Available in the Editor preferences)
  • Deselect envelope points by clicking off the selection in the Editor timeline.
  • Edit the keyword of envelopes by text input (useful for envelopes that are difficult to pick in the main Modul8 UI)

Timeline Module:

  • Record your Gener8 Launchpad performances.
  • Dedicated module to view and edit your recording.
  • Select recorded clip events, drag to adjust timing, or delete them.
  • Adjust loop range from the timeline.
  • Zoom in for fine editing of your performances
  • Beat snapping. When dragging clip events they will stick to the nearest beat for easy editing.
  • Quantise function to tidy up your performance.
  • Beat/seconds counter display.

Novation Launchpad Support:

  • Create, Select or Trigger clips in Gener8 from the Novation Launchpad
  • Novation Launchpad displays all active clips automatically – no MIDI mapping required.
  • Select or create layers
  • Scroll pages
  • Tap BPM
  • Start/Stop Clock
  • Arm Timeline recording
  • Dedicated page for selecting media.
  • Works alongside Ableton Live (User 2 Mode)

Korg NanoKonrol Support:

  • Works in nanoKontrol Scene 3, leaving you plenty of space to map you own controls.
  • Toggles between A/B layers (top push button 9)
  • Adjust layer transparency/alpha values (faders 1-5)
  • Adjust layer audio volume (knobs 1-5)\
  • Select active row (knob 9)
  • Trigger clip on active row (bottom buttons 1-5)
  • Trigger entire active rows (bottom button 9)
  • Dedicated crossfader slider (fader 9)
  • Show/Hide layers (top push buttons 1-5)

If you’re on the mailing list you will receive a download link, and if you’re not join up and I’ll send you the goods.

I’ll be posting more info about this update over the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled. So much to teach you all. I am in the process of building more tutorials and updating the manual at last too.

Hope you like it!

Nice tutorial…

I happened across this interesting tutorial the other day, which explains (among many other things) the use of a few of my modules, so I thought I’d share it here.

There’s even some clever techniques I hadn’t thought of myself! You’ve gotta love that…

Making of the Drop Box from HaijakArt.

Slicer Module….

Now, while I’ve been teasing you all with a tales of a soon coming Gener8 update, I have again become distracted… but in a good way!

For the last couple of nights I have been developing a media slicing grid which works with the Timecode shared library.

It takes the ‘BAR_BEATS’ value and slices up your media into sections for each beat. You can then adjust the play position of each slice by dragging up or down in the grid. Simple.

Slicer1

The above example shows an 8 beat bar. If your media fits into 8 beats (or you are using Gener8’s Autoloop set to 8 beats), then this setup would play a media seemlessly.

Underneath the grid are selection buttons for each slice. Once selected you can adjust the offset numerically.

Slicer2

There are also some extra functions like ‘reverse’ and ‘random’ for you to fiddle with.

This example shows a 16 beat bar after the ‘random’ effect has been applied.

IMPORTANT: To use this module, you will need to have a Timecode running, either from the Gener8 Launchpad or the stand alone Timecode module.

So go on, download it and get creative!

You can download this version from the Modul8 online library (accessed via the Modules menu in Modul8). There will be a Gener8 clip change sensitive version coming with Gener8 0.6.

Clip creation, Sequencing with clip follow actions, adding filters, matching loops to BPM with the Auto-Loop function.
