Soundfruuze update brings cool new features

soundfruuze

by Alexey Nadzharov

soundfruuze

'soundfruuze' is an exprerimental live sampler / looper / granular and FFT scrub effect

It records live the recent 10 seconds of audio and allows you to manipulate it with special controls.
The interface is divided into five “lanes”, sound is produced by touching the lanes.
Each lane can be set up to use different effect and has various control parameters mapped to the touch position:


Scratch

Most basic lane type. You can control the volume of the resulting sound and smoothness of the position interpolation. Lesser smooth value produces the sound with more high frequencies.

Speed

Another basic playback type. Starts playing from the position in the sound that you selected with touch. Vertical position controls playback speed, horizontal parameter is assignable.


Granular Freeze

Allows you to select the sound at some position and use both horizontal and vertical coordinates of touch as 2 independent parameters. You can control volume, playback speed (pitch) and the grain size.


Granular Scrub

This type of lane is very similar to granular freeze but it allows to change the position of the grain after its start.

Granular Stream

This lane type enables granular playback with random parameters. You can randomise grain position in the selected range, speed, grain size and pan. There is special control for that type lane. The 2-dimensional slider is assignable so you can change 2 parameters for each touch independently.

FFT Freeze and FFT Scrub

In both FFT types of lanes another algorithm is used to process sound. In both FFT Freeze and Scrub sound is analyzed with the FFT transform and divided into frames. FFT Freeze allows you to select the frame at the desired sample position and to play it making the sound “freeze” at this point.


Looper

This lane type allows you to make loops / repeat large grains of sound. When you touch a looper lane, a new looper control is created and is kept there until you turn it off with the red ‘close’ button. You can change loop speed, volume, size and position for each loop individually or for all loops on one lane together using additional controls

FFT Looper

This type works the same way as basic Looper but allows to change playback speed while keeping the pitch. It uses FFT algorithm for playback allowing constant pitch for any playback speed and the same FFT effects (gate and phase randomisation)

Each lane has also five effects:
- Frequency shifter
- Ring modulation
- Sample-and-hold (" lo-fi")
- HP/LP filter
- Reverb

Three new lane types:

  • FFT Looper — works the same way as Looper lane but uses FFT algorithm for playback allowing constant pitch for any playback speed and the same FFT effects (gate and phase randomisation).
  • Granular Stream — the same granular-freeze engine with all parameter randomisation and special UI control.
  • Speed lane — vertical touch position controls playback speed, horizontal position can be assigned to any parameter.

Five effects:

  • Frequency shifter.
  • Ring modulation.
  • Sample-and-hold (” lo-fi”).
  • HP/LP filter.
  • Reverb.

The amount of effect can be set for each sound individually or for all sounds produced by one lane.Limiter added on master output.
Enhanced looper control: new “size&volume” lane mode. drag to select the time for the new loop and release touch to create it. Vertical position controls the volume of the loop that will be created. You can create muted loop by dragging at the bottom of the lane.
B buffer when in “record output” now doesn’t record self.
When you change lane type it sets up with default x/y controls and sliders.
“reset slider values” button added to lane type selector.
several fixes for the sound quality in granular nodes.
Bug fixes and UI improvements
