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.

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.

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.

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!
