CAA – 6: Ruslan Yusipov SASER SAS24P3L recordings on Cyland Audio Archive

Compositor Software presents a project of collaboration with Cyland Audio Archive (CAA), curated by Sergey Komarov (Kurvenschreiber). Now, Cyland organization archive has recordings made with SASER SAS24P3L software in the summer 2016 period. It is an experiment with master wavetable, which adds warmth to the recording and tones to software antenna modules. Recordings are available on the vinyl in 7,5″ PVC Lathe cut format and as digital recordings in popular audio formats on the CAA bandcamp page.

This release consists of five recordings, which named using a special principle of SASER SAS24P3L software work. The roots of the naming come from Ionic numeral system: first letter from Greek alphabet taken from the position of the central channel and number is sum of numerical values from three channels. In conjunction with taken number and letter of the central channel the model of a imitating device is named. Using an interface of SASER SAS24P3L audio engine it is possible to composite different radio stations, translating: SLF and ULF channels of original bus, VLF on secondary bus and VHF on the oversampling bus.

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.

Closed loop vs. Infinite loop

Here I would start a series of discussions on a topic of radio translation technics and their impact on the radio-electronic security. First, I would stress out the importance of the subject of comparing two modern technics to initiate radio communications, which are closed loop and infinite loop strategies.

Closed loop and infinite loop both have recreation in Compositor Software instruments such as MDL12 for infinite loop structure and RTC4k, RTC8k and RT-z8 for closed loop structure. The infinite loop stays for an infinite time translation and, as a Fourier series, implements the continuous time interval for non-harmonic analysis. Closed loop from the other hand may be a short type of translation like one bar Morse code message. Closed loop much more secure in its implementation. Infinite loop can be easily broken with radio-electronic security instruments. For example, one flyby of AVACS, navigating through the geographic parallel may completely shut down infinite loop radio translations on a territory of the whole country. The infinite loop can be broken partly or at whole, when both positive and negative frequencies does not work, and the only band, which remains in this situation, is a closed loop structure.

Hyperbolic frequency bands

Using Compositor Pro v2 one can edit and reinstantiate the Ether on VLF band. First, you can apply Compositor Pro v2 to negative frequencies and then apply it to positive frequencies. Infinite loop communications are not secure and full-duplex modems must have a resynthesis module as Compositor Software instruments has. Not only resynthesis must happen to instantiate closed loop also the transport technics such as output channel detectors must be used. Both Compositor Pro v1 and v2 has closed loop structure on a C language level. This in fact gives much more stable results compared to later machines implemented on GenExpr C++ code. However proper implementation (such as RTC4k, RTC8k and RT-z8) of higher-level machines can be as stable as Pro versions. The most significant difference is that GenExpr machines are fully real-time compared to Pro versions, which have one bar bufferization.

Compositor Software Hypervisor Radio Shack

During the perfection and in attempt to create more stable technology Compositor Software arranged its modules in the Radio Shack structure. By means of virtual machines, the Ableton Live 9 or MaxMSP suits as a platform for hosting micro-kernel machines such as AI-RT1024, FF8, N9000 and TC25. These machines feeds SASER channel with an approximation curve inherited from an RTC8k chain. This way you can potentially receive completely stochastic translations out of VLF band.

You can order different devices for your production from Compositor Software Web Shop.

Compositor Software RT-z8 – the BMW Z8 in a world of audio clock generators

Compositor Software recently adopted the 16k technology. It was in the work for a few weeks and now I would like to present to you a breakthrough in a world of audio generators. From now on, the 16k patterns are available in Compositor Software RT-z8 Ethernet Aggregator device.
First, it is musical. Second, brilliant patterns switched by a continuous mix in real time are a perfect solution for later developments.


From Wikipedia:

In mathematics and signal processing, the Z-transform converts a discrete-time signal, which is a sequence of real or complex numbers, into a complex frequency domain representation.

Compositor Software RT-z8 uses complex transform at the early stages of the code right before the actual processing begins. Starting from RTC developments it brings the same network aggregation without an IP protocol. No need to plug any cables. RT-z8 processing starts immediately right after the load of the device. Compositor Software RT-z8 avoids Time Collisions by more efficient memory usage. RT stands for Real-Time. Complex processing transforms your actual PC in the cloaking generator device with the use of a single-click performance.

Compositor Software devices for music production

In this video I will show you the special method of work, due to it you can produce a techno track in 20 minutes or less using MDL12 Max for Live and other Compositor Software feeders. The artificial network produces the feedback loops out of submitted material. You can receive loops for parts such as basslines, melodies and percussion. Enjoy!
