Device Details


Name | Version: decalage 0.1
Author: lucijan
Device Type: MIDI Effect
Description: decalage is a MIDI effect to slow down incoming MIDI events. It emphasizes fractional slowdowns (in the range of 0% - 1%) to produce phasing effects.


Drop decalage into the device chain of a MIDI track and adjust the slowdown. The resulting tempo in BPM is shown below slowdown control. Pressing [play] in Ableton will restart the effect independent of the current position in the project. In other words when pressing play the slowed down track is synchronized with the project. While playing it will increasingly go out of sync. This is done to facilitate working on phrases in the arrangement view. Under the hood decalage is just a linearly increasing delay so it is not suited for live playing.

This is super dope - thanks for sharing it.  Curious to see where it goes next or what you have cooking.   Liking how unpredictable this is
@lucijan Can you please check the file? After I click Download Device I get a 0 byte file that's empty, which I can't drop into a MIDI track.
@Torley hm ... you are right ... that's very odd. i re-uploaded but it still stays at 0 bytes. for the moment you can download the file from the website
