Device Details


Name | Version: zb.impulseProb 1.0
Author: ZlatkoBaracskai
Device Type: MIDI Effect
Description: zb.impulseProb is a probabilistic pad chooser for the Ableton built-in impulse sampling instrument. For each incoming note it outputs one note with altered pitch, durations are preserved.
Each bar in the pad chance multislider represents a single available sample, whereas the length of the bar represents the likelihood of the incoming note being transposed to trigger that specific sample. Further, each pad has a distinct velocity range that will be used to generate the dynamic.
The two boundaries of the velocity range multislider specify the range.
The on toggle below the multisliders will temporarily turn the pad off and back on.
The '-' and '+' triggers will respectively decrease and increase all the slider values.
The 'v' parameter will induce a small and 'V' a large variation for each of the sliders. The 'R' trigger will randomise all the slider values.
The device in Fig.2. will most likely choose pads one and five, sometimes pads two through four and never pick pads above five. Pad one will have the largest velocity, however each pad will demonstrate dynamic variation. The device outputs notes of C major scale starting from C3, and can be used to create melodies as well.

Fascinating. I'll try to figure this one out.
