Audio beautifier - Layering / FX / Pitchshift / Multi-looper
Processed is designed for real-time use, to transform and beautify a live audio input (or pre-recorded samples) via processing, looping, pitch shifting and layering.
I created this ensemble to process my harp playing; to build thick, fluid, glitched and evolving walls of sound from a single, pure sound source. It sounds glitchy, due to the granular pitch shifting. I love it like that, if you cringe at the sound of digital artifacts, this ensemble might not be for you...
You just play a dry signal into it and out comes (hopefully) thick, lush sound. For me, it sounds best with slow melodic/harmonic sound sources, rather than rhythmic source material. That said, do whatever you want, this is the whole point of sharing this ensemble.
Has a switchable Stereo-Out mode for live use or 16-Outs mode for multitracking to your DAW.
Fully documented, 15-page PDF manual included.
v1.1 update - smoothing added to loopers to reduce clicks, tremolo made less woozy, 1.5 beat option added to loop lengths

10 years of on/off Reaktor tinkering has gone into this ensemble, plus my new album was created entirely with this ensemble.
