Making Intergalactic Phone Call in Ableton Live 9 (Video)

New palette in Compositor Software SASER CS16RT5 achieved by setting Ableton Live 9 tempo to maximum available 999 bpm. At this tempo analog pulse signal repeated with the speed, which reminds dialing a number in analog telephone line. In this video you can watch what tunings were made in SASER CS16RT5 to achieve tonal and analog dialing at the same time.

Due to SASER CS16RT5 you can add an authentic sounds of virtual connection line to your production. This instrument gives an opportunity to imitate analog and tonal dialing at the same time for translating the composite signal in and out of Ether.

Top 3 techno tracks which use Morse code as a melody

The most successful ostinato melodies in techno music may be taken from radio translations, which make this technological style of music more authentic. Such melodies may be a recording of radio loop or Ether resynthesis using original Morse code message as an inspiration. The later allows avoiding Ether noises such as clicks, but loses the original radio translation atmosphere. Today, I will play Top 3 techno tracks, which use Morse code as a track main line, using both approaches.

  1. Dubfire & Oliver Huntemann – Diablo (Original Mix)

The first line is Ali Shirazinia aka Dubfire with Diablo track. The main hook of the track is a radio loop, which sounds as an Ether recording. The sound of this translation taken from Morse code key for manual or automatic telegraph messaging.

The translation reads as:

. .. .. .. (EIII)

  1. Gaiser – Ciliate with

On the second place, there is Jon Gaiser with his resynthesizing passion for short Morse code messages. The track is Ciliate with from Blank Fade album. Having the idea of showcasing different variations of a short radio loop, Jon uses resynthesis as a source of inspiration.

The track translation reads:

… . (SE) with variation on … .. (SI)

  1. Boosty – Wavescanner

On the third place there is Ruslan Yusipov with his Boosty alias. Ruslan uses Funky key sound to resynthesize original translation.

The track translation reads as:

. .. (EI)

 

If you would like to use radio translations in your tracks, I recommend purchasing SASER Max for Live from Compositor Software. With its use, you can enhance your productions with resynthesized radio translations in Gaiser style and one-bar loops recorded directly from the Ether like in Diablo track.

AVOX Max for Live Beat Independent

AVOX Max for Live update version 1.1.6 released. Now you can control beat tempo independently from the tuning of the device. In AVOX Max for Live version 1.1.6 you can switch from automatic key detection to a manual using two available controls. You can also resynthesize the song tone on the fly while using Ableton Live BPM control to switch to a different tempo. The solution works on PC and Mac using Max 6 or Max 7 Max for Live. The main difference from the previous version is that AVOX Max for Live has a switchable scanner with automatic frequency detection algorithm.

The main idea of switchable communications as with AVOX Max for Live vocoder/resynthesizer is to enable a radio translation over the 20 Hz – 20 kHz passband music. AVOX Max for Live modeled to suit modern styles of electronic dance music. The spectrum of EDM songs is especially useful to detect ongoing radio translations feeding the track to AVOX Max for Live input and analyzing the spectrum with the use of CW Decoder as an example. This way you can review old translations, which were at the moment of the track first listening. For example, you have a legitimate file of the track, which you bought ten years ago. Now, with the use of the AVOX Max for Live you can revive the emotions you had at the moment of the first listenning analyzing and reading a text output of what inspired you in that music in a first place. Yes, every track has a radio translation over it and you can control and revive it using Compositor Software instruments.

However, this approach raises a term of the protection of such communications. It is very important to not to share the output of the translation to a 3d party. Such translations can contain loads of private information such as gathering points, events, and simply communications, you do not want to share with others. This way an automatic mode of AVOX Max for Live is as important as it helps to quite the frequency band the translation goes on, when 3d party tries to key it. Automatic scanner made by Compositor Software artificial intelligence proprietary algorithm can be found on all Compositor Software instruments. Buffer overrun protection is also included in a new version of AVOX Max for Live.
