FFTease 2.5 now available

FFTease is a collection of externals for spectral sound processing. Version 2.5 introduces externals for spectral tuning, spectral reanimation, spectral granular resynthesis, a spectral sampler with independent control over speed and transposition, and CA-driven spectra. Relative window size and overlap factor may now be controlled directly.

The externals are compiled for Mac OSX and Windows and may be downloaded at:

http://www.arts.manchester.ac.uk/subjectareas/music/academic staff/ericlyon/software/fftease/

or

http://tinyurl.com/83rj2

The site also contains demo sounds of some of the FFTease processes.

FFTease may be freely used for any artistic or research purpose.

Your industrious FFTease Team,

-Eric Lyon

Great !

Just on thing : the .help file are missing in the windows version.
Of course, I took them in the mac version, but remember that not all windows
users have stuffit installed…

…And on more thing: could you add your new objects to http://www.maxobjects.com ?

Thanks again for sharing your work
Best

Thank you for reporting that. I have sent in a new Windows package with the help files included. I’m not directly in control of the site, so it may take a day or so for them to show up on the Manchester site. For now you can grab the Windows update here:

And thanks to everyone for your kind comments about our work.

One thing I noticed while listening to the samples.
It looks like the George Bush clip

fftease-ex-resent1.mp3 [320 Kbytes]
resent~ resynthesizes a watusi with each bin set to a random speed.

does not have any perceptible change in audio. Perhaps you
posted the original instead?

No, it is a processed version. You can hear the different bins go out of completely out of phase with each other over the course of the example. The second resent~ example sounds similar to the first, except that blocks of bins are grouped together, so that different parts of the spectrum are playing back at different speeds.

Best,
Eric

Oh sorry, you see Bush is already so out of phase with
the rest of the world that I could not tell the differnce. ;)
