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.

Longy Techno recorded using Compositor v3

The latest addition to SASER v1.1.3 was an extended bandwidth of virtual ether spanning up to 250 parsec long with 5000 omega as an upper limit. SASER standalone and Max for Live can grasp only a cycle of the extended translation, which is enough to record techno track loop for example. In contrast, long techno tracks in extended range can be synthesized using ether regeneration network of SASER module inside of Compositor v3 rack. The magic begins when beacon retranslation modulates the received translation of SASER regenerator. At this moment, the track is received. It sounds like real-time synthezation of sound grains or better to call them sound molecules. You can upscale or downscale a track using internal SASER particle accelerator. In the recording you can definitely hear the particles forming the rhythmic or modulation pattern with internal characteristics of the recording like piano or chord music. The congruence effect achieved in a timely manner when this music plays over a full band translation.

Compositor v3.0.1 for Windows x64 and Macintosh released

Compositor v3.0.1 is a major update, which fixes several bugs of Windows x64 version and first appearing in a Mac world of 3d installment of Compositor Software. Now you can run Compositor v3.0.1 natively on a Mac machine and use ReWire to sync to Ableton Live 9. Both versions are identical and give same results on PC and Mac systems.

Compositor v3.0.1 Hypervisor Radio Shack

With Compositor v3 Hypervisor Radio Shack, named after the platform for running virtual machines inside one matrix, you have modular structure so be sure to choose the feeders you need to suit your style of translations. You can choose FF8 signal-rate quantized module for electric field sounds with LFO structure reminding a sound of copter drone engines. Smooth exponential TC25 for LFO like modulated granular synthesis. AI-RT1024 quantized real-time generator aimed to fill a niche of Compositor Pro 2 style and sound. N9000 exponential structure feeder for Compositor Max for Live like sounds. All feeders have the auto mode for completely autonomous simulations and one-dial parameter operation of patterns and algorithm tuning. It was made on a purpose for faster pattern selection of feeding generators in a live ensemble situation.

RTC8k system

You can also use all four feeders in the link mode to main RTC8k radar setting. This way feeder pattern will always follow current RTC8k radar setting for the initiated translation. Now you also have the visual feedback for RTC8k server signalizations. I named them in simple chat statuses style to be in touch with current automatic tuning of an algorithm. You can view their statistics and graphic curve of statuses appearance by pressing setup button for RTC8k radar. The main idea is to understand the generators disturbance behavior. If you experience dropouts in playback and other artifacts, check visual display of RTC8k for statuses like Threat, Call, Arouse and Envy, which are measured on a signalization average level.

Overall, all these great features aid your interaction with an instrument and help to visualize audience reactions on a translation you run with Compositor v3 software.

RT-z8: Bind your computer is 16GB RAM system

16k technology opens a myriad of possibilities inside your current machine especially when dealing with high capacity sample data streaming from your PC RAM system. It is an ability, which empowers your needs as a sound designer to use more RAM, than currently resides in your system. RT-z8 is silver plate technology for discretization tasks as well as RTC8k model. At a current sample rate, RT-z8 can store up to 16GB memory packed in about 580MB in your PC system, which you can discover for crucial tasks such as real-time rendering. This way you can run RT-z8 on older systems to protect it against the security threats.

As you see, current virtual machine setup is a perfect solution to inbound computer tasks, which now suits the Compositor v3 rack development goal. Together with other virtual machines it suits uninterruptable communications at processor speed without hard drive usage at all.

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 function

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 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!

Exalted is Compositor Software endorser

avaxAfter three decades of growth as an artist, Ruslan Yusipov uses Exalted alias again for an album design for Compositor Software. Selections is a stochastic experiment of snapshots inside MaxMSP software. How snapshots influences our lives and how they stored on computer. Exalted puts it inside the two-channel AVOX decks inside Ableton Live 9 and mixes for reminiscent feeling of youth, aging and oldest. He remembers his life through connection to Compositor Max For Live device where he used an artist idea of the Time Machine from 1540 to 4000 years.

When you feed the AVOX device with Compositor Software feeders such as Compositor Pro 2 the interesting effect achieved. Someone sends a Morse code on the second deck such as a right channel and tries to sync to a feeder tempo. In addition, you can hear this at the right channel of Exalted – Selections album starting from the middle of the continuous mix, which was recorded using Compositor Software Max For Live recorder, which will not be released due to the amount of products functional pricelist has.
