201 Pocket Piano - Text Pattern w/ Thru Notes

video upload by Critter & Guitari

This is a pattern for the 201 Pocket Piano. It’s musical magic is found in its ability to simultaneously play both arpeggios and a steady note! So you get a solid note ringing out as long as you press a key (or keys) and then you get arpeggiated notes from that steady note too!

To make this pattern even better, the arpeggiated pattern is set by an easily edited text file! Create your own arpeggios/repeated notes!"

Please welcome: 5 Moons by Critter & Guitari

video upload by Critter & Guitari

5 Moons is a multi-track recorder! Write songs in loops or straight through like a tape recorder. Connect an instrument, record 5 tracks, then bounce down to start a new song with the bounce on the first track. 5 Moons is simple and immediate. You'll be making song after song after song..."

"5 Moons is a multitrack recorder. On one hand, it's a tool to record your creativity. Build up layers of tracks and enjoy crafting that perfect song or field recording.

On the other hand, it helps you create new sounds! Looping and bounce down functions open up new dimensions for your sound and fun ways for your tracks to interact with each other!

The unassuming wood enclosure draws you in, but hidden inside are high fidelity electronics designed for rich recordings. Its sleek user interface offers crisp control and ample room for sonic experimentation.

Easy Interface, Rapid Results

Get straight into recording - let your creativity flow.

5 Moons' simple interface is perfect for effortlessly building up many tracks.

The immediacy of 5 Moons means you'll be quickly experimenting and exploring the new ideas flying around your studio - watch out!

One Shot or Loop?

Create evolving jazz loops and/or a 3-chord pop song.

5 Moons is happy to acommodate recording a song with a beginning and end or a looping vibe - it's all in how you decide to play back your tracks. You'll probably do both!

Bounce with Me

Build up your song with more tracks.

At first glance, you might think 5 Moons 'only' has five tracks. But once you bounce down those five tracks to the first track of a new song, you'll have 4 more tracks to add to it!

Once those four new tracks have audio, bounce down again and you'll have another four new more tracks to play with! ...and on and on until your masterpiece is complete.

File Freedom

Disk Mode makes it easy to transfer files to your DAW.

The USB-C port is used for both power and data transfer. Connect to your computer and copy your recordings for posterity and/or additional editing.

You can also copy existing audio files onto 5 Moons. Use these files as the beginnings of new songs or use 5 Moons' interface as a way to reenvision and remix your prior tracks!"

Mono-to-Stereo: PingPongInn, Stereo Overloop, & Cannabits

video upload by Critter & Guitari

"Let's do two stereo experiments with PingPongInn.

Overloop Stereo makes nice loops in stereo! We'll play melodies with CZZ-multi that get panned by PingPongInn. Create spacious rhythmic textures with Overloop's delay as it gets recorded and layered on top of itself with each loop iteration.

We'll use PingPongInn to pan our bass guitar and process the left and right channels individually with two instances of Cannabits. All three Organelles are synced via Link! Changing the tempo on one changes the tempo on all of them!

Download PingPongInn here:
