Audulus 3 Library Reface

The Automation Lane module is so key for live style jam production. Love it.

I definitely need to use this one more.

I have noticed a couple of things in the Reface Library.

The Neo-Reimannian Tirad -Transformer module doesn’t load right.
The uSnare doesn’t seem to respond to fast triggers or there is some gating issue I think.

There are alot of modules that could still be added. Also, since all the work went into documentation, etc., this should really be pinned to the main page of the forum, no? Even within the thread you have to hunt around for things. Personally, I slept on the reface library in my workflow a lot of the time because I didn’t have it on my quick menu on the MacBook.

The reface was still a work in progress when @biminiroad decided to pursue a career in real estate. At this point I’m not sure if he has the time or inclination to pursue it further. Exactly what shape the Library in A4 will take is yet to be determined. Of course you can add the library to the context menu on your MacBook by placing it in the modules folder you haven’t already done so. I’ll have a look at the Neo-Reimannian module and the uSnare as soon as I get a chance.

I had a look at the Neo-Reimannian Triad Transformer and it seems to be working OK other than a mis-wire on the reset input. This is based on a module I built ages ago. Mark redid the UI and added a 1/oct input. Here’s a demo and also the original module

@futureaztec I went back and corrected the issue you pointed out in my Mono/Poly Snare drum patch a while ago that was preventing drum rolls. I think it should be good now. Can you test it out and lemme know if it works for your purposes?

I like the sound but even though the gate registers a roll, the output seems limited to a conservative fraction.

Cool, thanks for getting back to me. I will see what I can do to fix that for you. I’ll get back to you as soon as I have some downtime later today. I am currently pulling an all nighter to finish packing up my apartment to make sure all is ready for the movers tomorrow and just took a short break here to check in and rest my exhausted mind for a few minutes.

Thought you might enjoy this variation on the Neo-Reimannian Transform I put together for a track I’m working on. Hit START to start. The patch resets after it fades out but there’s also a reset button. To adjust the master volume move the start knob on the FADE OUT envelope. It’s pretty CPU heavy.

I figured it out. I figured it would be related to the gate smear, but I was WAY too tired this morning to look at it when I messaged you back. It has been fixed, I set the gate smear with a constant at what I feel is the optimal for drumrolls. You can drop it down lower, but it seems like 10% is the threshold where below that, it just doesn’t sound like itself any longer, due to the rapid fire nature of the rolls. I guess I should also mention that the higher the gate smear is, the better the drum sound ends up being. Adjust as you see fit and let me know if this fixed the issue for you. :slightly_smiling_face:

Yeah it now works on the drum pad. It seems like there may be an issue with the pitch though.

That’s a fairly astonishing patch.:grin:

Thxs. It’s the intro to a piece I’m working on. I finally got a chance to sit down with the Audulus, the ES-8 and the hardware synths and I’m trying to develop a decent workflow using Ableton Live. The clip-based approach is nice but gets a bit awkward if you’re routing MIDI in and out and trying to capture audio rather than MIDI clips. It is nice to finally have more than two channels of I/O for Audulus.

:sob: Oh how I wish this was an option for me, right now lol. I envy the heck out of you guys that have racks and multiple channels of I/O already in possession. I have a plan in my head, but this transitional phase of my life to another locale and opportunity is really killing my plans for making this home built Toolbox Rack setup happen. I am so anxiously waiting for it to be over.

You’ll get there! Move first, play after. You”ve got lots of time, no need to rush things. I waited almost 50 years for my first synth, you’ve already got me beat by ages! :cowboy_hat_face:

Does anyone have info on how the inputs work. What is the purpose of the gate input? How does it work in conjunction with the sidechain input? There is no entry in the Reface module document, and this is the only place where this version of the module appears. The thread where an earlier version was posted does not have a breakdown of the functions. I pretty much need a compressor for every patch. I am grateful there is a release knob. Getting the sidechain effect right for the right applications is important. I am hoping with a bit more info, it can provide the ducking I am after (which in somecases varies per step, where you have one drawn out kick on a broken beat.

Oh wow. I made that many moons ago….

If memory serves me correctly, I think what the gate input does (I don’t have audulus in front of me) is it needs to receive the clock signal of your patch, and it will set the Release knob parameters to be in sync. Then the Release knob is there to switch between 1/4 notes, 1/2 notes, etc. I’m sure opening it up will reveal what I ended up with.

So, without a gate input, the patch will be stuck with an infinite release time, since it’s counting time between the beats of the clock to learn the tempo of the patch. When a clock signal is applied to the gate input, the compressor will release in sync to your patch.

So, in the case of Moon Walk, it’s specifically made for that classic pumping.
