Device Details


Name | Version: Multiband Envelope Mapper 1.0
Author: Bert
Device Type: Audio Effect
Description: This device splits the incomming signal into 3 bands. On each band an envelope-follower is applied. The output of each envelope-follower can then again be used to control the level of each band (positive & negative!).

A little bit like multiband-sidechain-upward-downward-compression. But more intuitive (imo).

Created as a proof of concept with mastering in mind.

I'd like to integrate steeper crossover-filters. Maybe independent bands for the envelope-followers and the gain-control. What do you think?

Holy fucking shit, you...I had a dream a few years ago about this type of thing, and then createdit the next evening with some m4l stuff and 3rd party plugins, except it was three assignable envelope followers that were each set to monitor a band that the source signal was divided into - Lo-Mid-Hi. It was fantastic for some synth-perc patches I made in Sunrizer (if you have an ipad, you surely know about it), that were basically sequenced with an arpeggiator and LFO, with the noise generator key-synced as to easily dial in "HH" portions by note. The whole point is that this material was perfect for this idea because, with the benefit of any ramped LFO waveform that was partially driving the sequence, you'd have some portions of the rhythm sliding between the BD and HH that had a freq gradient which straddled the crossover between the bands the env-followers were monitoring. Assigning the envelopes to parameters on spectral effects like vocoders really got some neat results. Sorry for the rant, I'm just really excited you did this; I will predictably say of course that you should absolutely take this idea further :)
