Just Another Day - Glooper effect

Screen Shot 2020-05-08 at 11.04.51 AM
I’ve been fooling around with various delay based modules and came up with this one. It’s a sort of combination looper and echo I finally decided to call the Glooper. Internally it has two sets of 8 delay lines configured to capture a single clock’s worth of audio in succession. Each looper has a probability of firing on each clock based on the density setting. At 0 no loopers will record and at 100%, all will. Each looper is cleared at the beginning of each clock. The output of these loops is feed into a pair of master echos. Feedback controls the length of the decay for the master echo, density sets the probability that the loops will record and mix is the typical dry/wet control. Note that this unit does require a clock to function properly. It does strange things when it isn’t clocked.

This is the piece I created this morning. The audio source is a Novation UltraNova. The percussion is a couple of Audulus modules and it features a single Glooper. I recorded it in a single take using Live.

For some reason it makes me think of the sinister Caliope music from the carnival described in “Something Wicked This Way Comes” by Ray Bradbury. Great work! :smiley:
