2020 THE SEMI MODULAR BEAT-MACHINE


Published on Mar 13, 2016 DUB-Russell

"2020 is a next generation semi modular beat-machine standalone software for beat making and real-time compositions."


Currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. A beta version is set for a May 2016 release. Some details via the campaign:

"The concept of 2020 is very simple:

1. Generate a million sound/sequence variations from a single, small idea.
2. Make entire beats in just one screen. (without scrolling or switching windows)

The user interface is designed like the console of a spaceship - all functions can be controlled in one simple screen."

Features:


Clock:
Signal based punctual clock.
BPM 30 - 1000.
Swing

Redesign any type of sound using a step sequencer.

Resolutions per beats : 1/4, 1/8, 1/12, 1/16, 1/20, 1/24, 1/28, 1/32.
Overdrive.
Highpass/Lowpass Filter.
LFO.
Triggers, Accents, Volumes.
Max 32 Beats.
Resolutions per beats : 1/4, 1/8, 1/12, 1/16, 1/20, 1/24, 1/28, 1/32.

Amp Envelope.
Pitch Envelope.
Overdrive.
Ring Modulation.
Highpass/Lowpass Filter.
Bit Crusher.
Overtone Filter.
LFO.
Simple sine wave kick synth to improve kick, or bass sound.

2x FM SYNTHS:
3x Operators, 5x Algorithms, 5x Waveforms.
Highpass/Lowpass Filter.
Bit Crusher.

EXTERNAL INPUTS / HIGURASHI GENERATOR / 3x SOUND LOOPERS:
EXTERNAL INPUTS
HIGURASHI GENERATOR
- Pretty nice beeper.
3x SOUND LOOPERS
- Loop players without dependence on a timeline.
- Overdrive.
- Highpass/Lowpass Filter.

3x LFO (can modulate dials).

PITCH TRANSPOSER:
Transpose Pitches of sound sources.
You can set the scale, octave range, and probabilities.

3x SEND EFFECTS
2x Delay Effects and Reverb.

BUS MIXER

Mixed signals can be routed to OUT BUS 1 and OUT BUS 2.

MASTER EFFECTS / AUDIO OUTS


OUT BUS 1:
- EQ
- Bit Crusher
- Highpass/Lowpass Filter
- Beat Repeater
- Compressor
- Maximizer.
OUT BUS 2:
- EQ
- Bit Crusher
- Highpass/Lowpass Filter
- Reverb
- Compressor (enable to toggle side-chain)
- Maximizer.
AUDIO OUTS
- If you use multi-channel I/O, you can have OUT BUS 1 and OUT BUS 2 separated.

RANDOMIZING FUNCTIONS
2020 has many randomising functions built in, allowing over 500 parameters to be manipulated freely. By controlling the probabilities and variation ranges of these functions, you can perform and produce as a live conductor.

IN FUTURE
You can easily record your performance (WAVE, AIFF). I am also planning a new recording format with stem sounds and clock data - this will take a few months before it is featured, but once this is done, you will be able to overdub to you (or your friends’) records, perfectly in sync."
