That's a fun one! Thanks

ah, this is lovely!

I did discover a little bug in there though; you seem to have missed plugging the [stripnote] into the [mtof], so overlapping notes get really wonky ;)

I'll definitely be using this one in my rig! Cheers. Reminds me a bit of the other ace amxd 'Ferine' by Disconnector.


oh, and the LPG knob probably should be changed, since it fills up the undo buffer.

@Crampe thank you! hope you enjoy and let me know if you have any feedback

@wetterberg thanks for those great bug finds. I fixed the stripnote bug (will post the updated version later).

In regards to the undo buffer, I've hit a bit of a wall. The simplest option is to change Parameter Visiblity to Hidden, but that makes it so the dials are no longer mappable. I saw documentation in forums around using live.remote~, but honestly am not sure how to implement it. Do you have any tips?

The bugs have noticed are the ones mentionned by Wetterberg.
About undo: what about modulating not the dials themselves (I imagine you're talking about the LPG one?), a solution is to modulate the value rather than the dial itself.
It's missing a nice live.banks for Push mapping, I might take a moment and do it if you don't have Push.

I've edited the LPG to bypass the knob and modulate a numbox instead, then sum that with the knob. Seems to be ok so far.

Thanks for the comments everyone! I have the stripnote fix ready, but still haven't been able to figure out this LPG issue.

@Crampe that's a really good idea. I do have a Push 1 so can take a look but feel free to go for it if you have time to get to it before I do.

@hatyn would love to see your solution since this has been giving me a hard time ?

version 1.1 adds:

* fixed stripnote bug
* Push bank mapping
* "pluck" feature which plucks the fold index with the same shape as the LPG

heres the compressed patch with the lpg fix from before
