DESCRIPTION

jambient CycloTron is an experimental instrument designed for modulating the playback speed of a set of samples, mixing them, and positioning them in sonic space.
It's inspired by Steve Reich's tape pieces
"Come Out" and "It's Gonna Rain."

You can treat the central instrument in this ensemble--jamCycle and the Cyclotronic Landscaper--as a set of 8 reel-to-reel tapeloops with control for drifting their speed up and down, or changing all their speeds simultaneously.

Once again, this ensemble in the jambient
series is geared to live jamming, to non-beat oriented ambient collage and to sculpting sound in time and space through a graphical interface.

Ciao dal tuo amico tedesco di berlino. It´s a spacy and funny "brain washing" machine.

Finally, uploaded it with from a little town in Italy, but have no way to test that everything went right, so if anything is wrong, please post a comment to the announcement in the forum.

Uploading still isn't working, and I'm off on a trip...but I'll try uploading it on the road.

Apologies, something isn't working with uploads into the library. I've tried a few times to do an upload. I'll post a comment when it finally gets uploaded properly.
