The Noizefield Particle of God Effect

Free Music Software: Developer Max Pfetscher let us know about a free Reaktor ensemble effect, Particle of God, that he created as part of KVR’s 2012 Developer Contest.

Here’s what he has to say about it:

Particle Of God is an ensemble effect for Native Instruments Reaktor. The idea behind this effect is to create a delay where the delay time is accelerated. The single delays are getting faster (or even slower) for each time the delay is repeated. To get a “musical” result, the delay time and also the delay acceleration is synchronized in time and tempo.

Several parameters can be changed in real-time an tweaked by the step-sequencers.

There is also an template for hexler touchOSC available.

Free Music Friday: Korg MicroSampler Experimental Electronica

Free Music Friday: Reader Jono Wise sent word about a free EP created primarily with the Korg MicroSampler.

Here’s what Wise has to say about the release, inVALID INvalidE.P.:

I recorded various sounds into the Microsampler, often making use of the 6k lofi mode, after this the tracks were played live into Ableton live, some tracks make use of post processing and overdubs, other tracks were pretty much just printed to audio, compression added and thats it.

The Tracks all come from one Bank on the microsampler that I recorded and are based on one central theme and variations on that. It was an interesting experiment in using the same music ideas and sounds for more than one track.
