Play samples at exact tempo through 2 stages of 13 types of FX. From jellycaster
Derived from WyrdAl’s wonderful Jellycaster, which takes audio input, this patch plays a chosen WAV file into some of the Jellycaster FX functions.
0.2 Fix to pitch shifter fx so you can have two in series.
Looper now plays into straight mix as well as into FX
New Window Size parameter added to pitch shifter Knob 4
0.3 Fix to Audio17.wav
The concept is that once you’ve got a sample loaded up and FX chosen, you can play it live by twiddling the settings on the fly – the sample start/length, playback rate, the mix.
Because we have just 4 menu pages, we can’t use all the Jellycaster stages, so there are no synth or grain stages, but still two stages of FX and the looper.
The first pages two now control loading the sample and setting it’s playback parameters. The second two are from Jellycaster and are now FX1 and FX2+Loop as in the original patch.
The looper now plays the original sample audio into the start of the FX chain, whereas in Jellycaster it input to the final FX stage.
The samples are in the ‘samples’ folder and are called ‘Audio1.wav’ etc. You can substitute your own, up to 40. I have included some that are either my own recordings, or I believe to be freely distributable e.g. samples from Librivox recordings, Freesound or the CitizenDJ project.
1: File (Audio1.wav to Audio40.wav)
Hit Aux to load the file.
2: Rate % (Playback rate)
3: Tempo bpm (The base tempo for repeating the sample)
4: Tempo Div (Divide the tempo i.e. slow it down)
2) Sample Slice
1. Start % (The start of the sample)
2. Length % (The length to play)
3. HPF % (A high pass filter, handy)
4. Output Mix % (Final mix of straight/FX)
Please refer to the original JellyCaster instructions. In brief, you have loads of FX you can put in these two slots. Each FX type has it’s own specific parameters.
Ditto for the FX. In addition the Aux button starts/stops recording which then plays. A short press stops it, a long press clears it.
