Mapping devices handle parameter modulations across multiple inputs & outputs. The Hydra has a single input which can be altered in different ways for each of its multiple outputs. The Meta Mixer & Formula have multiple inputs and combine them in various, potentially complex ways to craft a single output.
In a previous video we looked at the Chorus, Flanger & Phaser devices, which use a free-running modulation to drive their effects. No matter how you change the settings though, the shape of that modulation is always a sine wave. Let’s see if we can do something about that.
Hardware trackpads & joysticks allow the user to perform simple movements & more complex gestures to create musical changes. The XY Pad device provides the same ability within Renoise & Redux. Automations can be recorded by using the right mouse button.
The Gainer & Stereo Expander effects make the Panning, Volume and Width parameters from the Pre-Mixer available within these devices, with a few useful expansions. This means that these fundamental aspects of an audio signal can be controlled from anywhere within an effect chain.
While the delay column can be used to manually create swinging rhythms for individual notes, there are two other automatic methods available in the form of Global Groove and Phrase Shuffle.
Achenar, I think a video that extensively explains the subject of Phase (Phase View) would be very interesting. What is it for and how to use it correctly (values -R + R -L +L -1 +1).
Very grateful for your videos!
As their names suggest, the Key and Velocity Trackers accept as inputs: key (or ‘note’) values, and velocity (or ‘volume’) values. The devices then process this input through various options to create an output, which is used to control a Destination parameter.
