Device Overview

Name/Version: Big Ghost Prototype - Standalone App 1.1
Author: weightausend  
Description: This device is a MacOSX software developed in MAXMSP/Gen~ that aims to explore the concept of buffer data manipulation, inspired by the error correction/anti-skip units of old CD players. It creates a time-delayed "ghost copy" of an audio file that can be manipulated in real time with feedback lines and DC filtering applied directly to the buffer reader index, a unique feature that I believe doesn't exist elsewhere.
This results in distinctive sound variations and glitches that can be recorded instantly. The software includes an 8-step sequencer with storable random steps, enabling random jumps from one point of the file to another.

V1.1 - added button for audio settings/io

This is an incredibly fun standalone device for making controllable, glitchy effects on whatever audio file you place into it. Very nice work!

Looks sweet! Anyone try it on an intel Mac yet? Curious about checking it out but not if it doesn't work on intel

@NeuroNoNeuro thanks for your support!!

@FreddyFingaz I read your message and I plan to test it by tomorrow on 2 intel based systems and let you know.

Sweet, I will check back! Thx

Hi everyone,
- tested on intel (it works)
- added button to open audio settings

I like textural stuff & all sorts of granular and a little experimental here and there. This will be used in my projects!
