Device Overview

Name/Version: Chants 1.0
Author: s8jfou  
Description: Chants is a 2 voices granular pitch shifter & plate reverb audio effect.
Two independant voices can scale, pitch-shift and reverb any audio input.
A third reverb and scaler can be added to the initial audio input.

Demo here :

Chants is inspired by Clouds from Mutable Instruments, but I didn’t used any source code from Mutable. Like Clouds, granular events can be played constantly, or at a defined rate, or even randomly with a defined random rate. The pitch of each Pitch-shifter can also be played randomly and this random range can be defined, and synced to the tempo.
Scale act like a simple auto-tune, but not so powerful for low and mid frequencies. I designed this effect mostly for a human voices and high mono melodies.
Independant plate reverb for each voices and sound sources can be applied with time and mix.
And many more possibilities like random panning, feedback to send back to the pitch-shifter the sound he already pitch-shifted, a pre-delay etc.

Chants is a free Max for Live device, it’s thousands hours of work, but fuck audio capitalism, we want to make music, not money !

If this version don't work, please go to my website and download the .zip file, you'll find an (old) version which is exactly the same but without the possibility to map parameters, which is causing bug for certain Live or Max versions :

Brillant !!
Thank you for sharing this !!

Amazing as always. ty!

Thanks for nice devices and the will to fuck capitalism, not only in its audio aspect ! :)
Going to try this one more weird thing !

Excellent results! Is it possible to have parameters exposed for macroing? The source level, pan and reverb settings can't be mapped.

Would also be handy if the parameters were visible and banked on Push :)

whats the Chants ez of dat =D Thank you s8jfou
