A special MIDI generator
-Added more scales, taken from Gaugear ensemble
-Sequenced scales mode, alternating between 2 different ones
-New clocking system for pitch sequencer
-Random reset on waveform cycle restart or on new note
-Comb transformation for waves and pitch mapping
-Note duration randomization
-Master ensemble with bunch of presets, recalling Motion Clusters and SteamPipe
-Tweaked Steampipe , adding vibrato and stereo voice locator for wider spatialization.
Not a big update, but many interesting little things!
-Bugfix: noteOff messages were not properly sent, causing CPU skypes and voice stealing
-New feature: Number of voices definable from panel. Although it is not saving any CPU power because real voices are defined by the instrument properties.
-MIDI velocities are now displayed on the trigger display
-Added a Velocity offset knob
-Added random waveform on the AM panel
-Added a reset for the random parameter. When activated,a new set of random values is generated for every new wave cycle.
-Added a gate button, which uses incoming MIDI gates to mute/unmute the whole midi output
-Added a velocity randomizer in the Notes section. Whenever a new note is created, its velocity value is randomized by the amount defined by this knob
-New simple pitch sequencer. You must hit play to see this one running, but basically it sequences pitch values according to the 8 steps defined by knobs
-A specialized knob for adjusting number of virtual voices. Although Reaktor doesn't allow to access the voice number of the instrument, it should be possible to switch off some of the active ones (although would still use CPU power)
-A more sophisticated MIDI velocity mapper, extending the now brief "vel random" knob.
-Correction of wrong behaviors in the manual pitch mapping
Motion Clusters is a MIDI note generator with 2 different play modes:
-Motion: Use LFOs to generate MIDI gates; think of it as some kind of weird arpeggiator for sequence exploration. The number of LFOs is defined by the voices of the instrument.
-Clusters: Use your keyboard to generate as many gates as voices you set up on the instrument properties
Once this gate data is generated, you can map this gates to a specific note mapping. You can quantize to predefined scales, harmonic series or your own custom mapping. Many tools allow the control the interval between notes, randomization, symmetry and so on...
As usual, i added Steampipe for you to test the Motion Clusters functionality, but you can change this instrument or use it with any other external MIDI device.
