bve.phaselooper reaches back to Steve Reich's first tape pieces, such as 'It's Gonna Rain' and 'Come Out'. Record a sound, loop it and shift one channel slightly ahead of the other to evoke the same effect as these minimalist masterpieces.
Quad Micro Looper is an intuitive looping utility which holds 4 loopers with tiny buffer sizes (20ms to 500ms). each looper unit has its own gain oscillator with oscillator speed and floor controls. use the quadmicrolooper as a stutter effect or stack several loops on top of one another to create fascinating soundscapes.
bve.echternach is a sequencer which progresses like the ancient Procession of Echternach, in which participants take three steps forward, followed by two steps backward, etc. The Procession of Echternach is an annual Roman Catholic dancing procession held at Echternach, in eastern Luxembourg. It is the last traditional dancing procession in Europe. The procession is held every Whit Tuesday around the streets of the city of Echternach. It honours Willibrord, the patron saint of Luxembourg, who established the Abbey of Echternach.
Collatz Sequencer uses the Collatz conjecture to generate notes.
The Collatz conjecture is a conjecture in mathematics that concerns a sequence defined as follows: start with any positive integer n. Then each term is obtained from the previous term as follows: if the previous term is even, the next term is one half the previous term. If the previous term is odd, the next term is 3 times the previous term plus 1. The conjecture is that no matter what value of n, the sequence will always reach 1.
The Collatz Sequencer generates a note when the term countdown reaches zero, resulting in irregular, repetitive rhythmical patterns. When the sequence for any integer between 1 and 16 reaches 1, it automatically repeats.
Slices is a simple slicing utility, great for some quick and dirty slicing. It is to be used in conjunction with the included 'bve.sendtoslices' device. The device enables performers to play slices of live recorded audio (or pre-recorded samples) on the fly.
-> Put a bve.slices device on a midi track and a bve.sendtoslices device on an audio track. bve.sendtoslices will simply route the audio output of the track it's on to the bve.slices instrument device.
TupGen is a euclidean sequencer. 6 layers, slaved to Live's transport, can be configured separately to spit out up to 16 different kind of tuplets (each), which take place over an adjustable amount of beats.
