Device Details


Name | Version: Monophonic Pitcher 1.0.3
Author: stev
Device Type: Instrument
Description: This is a free monophonic version of the Polyphonic Pitcher. (found here: )

This hybrid midi instrument/audio effect can either be thought of as a midi harmonizer or a keyboard style sampler with continuous live audio input.

Set the audio inputs at the top left of the device and feed it a stream of audio.

Use midi to pitch shift that audio and alter it with basic sampling techniques. You get amplitude, pitch, and filter envelopes, as well as 2 LFOs that can modulate the filter, amplitude, and pitch and can be set to either sync or free running mode.

Now available in the Delays and Harmonizers pack.

Full Feature List:

-Input Selector

-Input Channel Selector (less cpu if mono in)

-Multiple pitch-shift qualities. Can be modulated more quickly on low mode, has less artifacts on high mode.

-Input Delay

-Velocity Sensitivity

-Root Note Selector

-Variable pitch bend width


-Latency compensations (midi and audio separate)

-Amplitude Envelope that can be switched off and on.

-Legato Mode

-State Variable Filter (Low/High/Band/Notch)

-Bi-polar Filter envelope.

-Bi-Polar Pitch Envelope

2 LFOs that each have:

-Sine/Pulse/Morphing Triangle (saw down-triangle-saw up)

-Free Running or Sync mode

-Can be scaled (-100%- 100%)

-Separately control the filter, amplitude and pitch modulation with individual polarities.

-Control of phase.

-Control of Pulse width and the shape of the morphing triangle.



Note about latency:

Since this device does live pitch shifting it takes a certain amount of time to analyze the audio before shifting it. The amount of time it takes (the latency) depends on which pitch shifting mode you're using, Lo=512 Med=1024 High=2048 (samples). When you enable latency compensation, to make the harmonized audio in sync with the un-harmonized input audio, live automatically sets the midi latency as well since this is technically a M4L instrument. This will cause the midi to trigger early on playback. This generally isn't noticeable if you're using it as a harmonizer, but if your using it as more of a sampler and midi timing is very important it may be noticeable. Either leave the latency off and deal with the delayed audio output (if you're sampling a long morphing texture over time, a couple ms of delay in the input audio doesn't really matter), or turn the midi latency re-compensation toggle on. The issue with this toggle is that if you're recording live midi in (in a live show for instance) it will double the live midi input latency. It will however bring it back to the right time on the timeline.
TLDR note about latency:

You have to decide whether perfect sync between dry and wet audio or perfectly accurate midi is most important to you. There's a setting to get both on playback, but it will double the latency of incoming midi notes in a live situation. Use lower quality pitch-shifting for less noticeable latency all together.

This device has built in info text as well as a well pop up that can be accessed by clicking on the plug logo on the top right corner.
