[sharing] mutable instruments' plaits module (macro-oscillator)


    Dec 30 2018 | 12:26 pm
    hi - for anyone interested in running mutable instruments' plaits module inside maxmsp you can try out this new external. It's an alpha version built for macos. Feel free to report any bugs or problems you have to vboehm (at) gmx (dot) ch (not to mutable instruments!). This is a temporary link. As soon as we have a stable version, it will be released as a package (including source code). https://vboehm.net/xchange/vb.mi.plts~.zip This was possible because Olivier Gillet generously open sourced the complete code base of mutable instruments' module line - thank you very much, Olivier!
    ps: rings and elements are in the making...

      That's great to hear !! Really looking forward to being able to get the stable version source code and compile it for windows ;)

      very good work, this all sounds good. but the calibration of some knobs on some instruments react little weird. and considering the trig input, it looks for a gate which is not very practical nor precise. it would be nice that it could react to the trigger amplitude, allowing some dynamics. It would be so great to have access to the instruments in the form of codeboxes in gen, it would be perfect to tweak and tune it to my needs. I would rellay enjoy to cross-modulate two or more of these too, but with externals it's not possible to make feedback-loops with just one sample delay, or at least it's not as convenient than using History. beautiful work nonetheless and I'm looking forward to try your versions of rings and elements
      edit : I noticed some fair amount of latency when in triggering mode.

      @bertrandfraysse - thx for your feedback!
      but the calibration of some knobs on some instruments react little weird.
      is this in comparison to the original module or is it a more general assessment? In the first case, I would be interested to get more info about the actual differences, as I don’t have a unit myself to test it against. In the second case, you might be right, but right now I’m focussing on getting as close to the actual behaviour of the original module as possible, reguardless if some idiosyncrasies proof to be useful or not.
      and considering the trig input, it looks for a gate which is not very practical nor precise.
      thanks - fixed. Have corrected it already for rings and elements, but forgot to change it in plaits.

      you might like to look at what @.quasar has posted already in this thread https://cycling74.com/forums/need-help-adapting-plaits'-grainlet-oscillator

      Yes!

      Have you done this with Clouds by any chance : )

      hi, i've done: plaits rings elements warps frames marbles braids (in the making...) ... but no clouds, so far.

      Amazing! Should I go back in the forum for the other externals or is there a link to where they can be downloaded?

      links for plaits, rings and braids below. These are alpha versions for testing. the others need (even) more testing, documentation and decision making, before I can put them up. https://vboehm.net/xchange/vb.mi.plts~.zip https://vboehm.net/xchange/vb.mi.rngs~.zip https://vboehm.net/xchange/vb.mi.brds~.zip

      Perfect thanks

      Wow these look great! Ill be watching for your updates. Has anyone done a OSX version of Marbles?

      yes, but I'm still working on it.
