Device Details


Name | Version: Ripple Filter 1.0
Author: ndivuyo
Device Type: Audio Effect
Description: 100% of sales donated to charities/causes!


Ripple Filter is both an FFT filter and an oscillator bank controlled by a water ripple simulation. 100% of sales for Ripple Filter will be donated to charities and organizations fighting against injustices, promoting human and animal rights, and protecting the environment, FOREVER! For the next 3 months (June-August 2020), the sales will be solely donated to aiding the BLM movement and Black LGBTQ+ orgs. Afterward, the funds will be split amongst various organizations (and suggestions are welcome in the future, just reach out to me). This is the first in hopefully a series of devices that will do this and hopefully can become a steady source of money to support positive change.

This is a max for live audio effect. The water ripple simulation has two “listeners” that “listen” to slices of the simulation (one listener on the x-axis and one on the y). These listeners can either be an FFT filter or an oscillator bank providing results from lofi/harsh to smooth and pretty. The values of the water on any point of the segment the listener is listening to set the amplitude values of the FFT filter/oscillators. Water ripples can be made either by 2 automatic “drips” or by clicking/dragging the simulation with the mouse (mouse clicks can also be recorded and looped). Additionally, walls can be created in the simulation to control the water flow. For the FFT filter, the input can either be the audio input on the track, and/or from an internal noise oscillator. There are various settings for controlling the water simulation, listeners and automatic drips. The device contains no internal LFOs to keep things simple, but it is highly encouraged to use mod sources like the max for live LFO to create dynamics the listeners :)

Really great work and lovely device.
Love that you give to charity :)

It would actually be kind of nice to be able to choose if the ripple are sort of on grid. So you can choose to get rythmic or not. Or having something similar to the way they show the buffer time on ableton looper. So you can pre select if you want to record 1/2/3/4 bars.
Idk if quantizing ripples are needed but having the possibility of choosing in advance the recording buffer time would be nice.
WOuld be really cool to be able to also undo a ripple but i guess that's pretty complex.

Anyway amazing works. Well worth the 5$ price. I would even pay more for it now that i've used it.
Thanks :) They are good ideas but, unlikely I will expand it, too many other projects and I kinda kept it simple given the price tag. Actually, it was intended as a free device but the $5 was to raise money for donation.
