DESCRIPTION

1.1.2 Update: Added a newer version of Adlais 1.1.2 (NOT the most current), and three factory LFOs linked to Adlais controls via IC Sends, plus a lot of new Master-level snaps, and suggest bpm of 72.5 as a good compromise rate for all snaps—certainly advise trying many other settings, of course, as well as different synths, IC connections, etc.

Wow, LOVING this new sequencer from David Elson and Brett Lavallee, so I made some snaps for it based on the excellent original set of 14. I first set this up running non-Reaktor synths via Reaktor's external MIDI, but soon switched back to all Reaktor, where I eventually hit upon the combo featured here: Adlais to NanoWave into FlatBlaster, which I found so interesting I decided to upload it as the wrapping for my snaps (which can of course be saved out and inserted into Adlais all by itself—and which will hopefully still work in future versions, which I gather we're to expect:), so the package also includes a set of Master snaps for that trio, which is also where the first two demo mp3s come from. I always set snaps to follow the active (clicked) instrument, in which setup you simply click the ensemble background to see and select the Master snaps. The final demo is an example of Adlais driving an AU plugin running inside Logic (the fabulous Diversion), which also has its internal arpeggiator running, just another little bit of serendipity, like discovering that really low BPM can be very satisfying with Adlais, hence the used bpm info in the Master snap names… The other point worth making, I think, is that Adlais is very much a performance device, rewarding manual as well as automated changes, even very small ones, to all the controls, not just the ones that can be automated. I found that just bumping up one or two offset controls by a single notch or two on a simple running pattern really powerful. And then I tried changing the Length number on the Mute Seq while the thing was running! In some cases, especially when running very slowly, whoa! Instant note flurries, for who knows what reason, very handy! Thanks Dave and Brett; excellent new tool!

btw, didn't update to the latest Adlais version simply because i made this earlier and the new version doesn't respond to the older Master snaps, though it does load its own earlier snaps no problem.

Yes, the same as me. So, set connection twice: Adlais to NanoWave and vice versa. Please control the hook visually again. Then it works!

Good point about the category; missed that, thanks Paule:) Did you have to set a connection to get the sequencer working with this download? I didn't, just dropped Nanowave in and off it went as soon as the outs were connected. I DID have to use the factory/original version and then load my own snap banks into it. When I tried with one of my own copies with the snaps already there, didn't work, nor did making the connection in Properties do anything…?? Same with SteamPipe; wonder why? I did try your maps a while back, but I've spent so much time already with the original samples and the few additions I made myself, when I used the new maps it seemed hardly recognizable, no doubt the point, but I just haven't yet spent the time to get used to the new ones, sorry! Hope to, though! How do these snaps work with them?

Please change the category to Patches.

David, there is much more fun when you set the internal connection between Adlaise and NanoWave. Then start the clock!
