A Radar ? Re-arrange steps order ?

This plug in aims at proposing a new way of creating and sequencing melodies.

On top of proposing normal step sequencer functions, it proposes several functions to re-order the note orders without destroying the original composition:

  • Normally a sequence goes from 1 to 16 steps. When you play this sequence, the step orders are : 1 followed by 2 then 3… etc. until 16.
  • Now, let’s imagine that you could re-arrange this order. For instance, why not playing steps like 1,2, 5,6, 1,2, 5,6 ?

MeloBang lets you re-arrange the way you want the order of the played sequence. You can use 3 modes:

  • BigBang: a Chaotic mode to re-arrange the way the note orders are played,
  • Factory Patterns: a set of pre defined note order (based on Euclidean algorithm),
  • Draw mode : you can draw you own order,

Draw mode

Factory & Big Bang mode

In case of an emergency, a Panic button has been added to re-initialise the melody back to its orignal state. You are safe !

Link ?

We added a Link mode : you can play the whole 8 sequences at the same time.

‘link’ button

Linked sequences

 

 

 

 

 

Use case

    • Imagine a drum rack with 8 PADS filled with percussion sounds,
    • For each sequence create a melody,
    • Then click on ‘Link’,
    • MeloBang will play the whole 8 sequences at the same time,
    • As a consequence, MeloBang becomes a DrumBox.

 

Slice ?

We added a Slice mode

Use case

  1. In MeloBang, click on Slice button,
  2. Add an Ableton Live Simpler Instrument filled with an audio loop,
  3. In Simpler, click on ‘Slice’ too.
  4. Then play with MeloBang, and re-order the slices to create spicy new audio loops πŸ™‚

 

A video will come soon.

Break effect ?

Let’s go back to our Link mode

Linked sequences

Use case

  • Imagine a drum rack filled with 64 or 128 pads πŸ™‚
  • If you click on ‘Link’, MeloBang will play the whole 8 sequence at the same time.
  • Now play with the transpose function,
  • MeloBang will create a “breaking” melodies, a new nice drum feel & sounds …
  • a video will come soon.

In practice

For the moment .. we are not offering a DEMO version πŸ™

  • We usually provide demo version of our plug-ins,
  • We worked on a MeloBang demo version but the results were not concluant,
  • We didn’t want to publish a faillsoft version that wouldn’t show all the plugin capabilities,
  • Rather, we decided to set a promotion period (nice price !).

We hope you will understand: providing good quality plug-ins matter.
