Glitch Delay – Eine Inspiration, ein Looper für Eurorack oder Rechner

Cuttlasses Glitch Delay

Das Glitch Delay ist ein Selbstbau-Eurorack-Modul. Es ist im Wesentlichen für unperfektes Delay mit Störungen, Kratzern und interessanten Flecken gedacht, weil es so einfach interessant klingt.

Nicht nur IDM, auch Gitarrenriffs können davon profitieren und Projekte wie Plaid leben geradezu davon. Das Modul basiert auf einem Teenys, einem kleinen Chip, also einem Minirechner.

Glitch Delay – Open-Source für Loop und Delay

Delay ist technisch gesehen extrem einfach, denn das einkommende Audiosignal wird einfach gespeichert und direkt wieder ausgegeben. Der Clou ist aber die Reaktion der einzelnen Parameter und wie das klingt. Sie geben einige gewollte Artefakte von sich, die musikalisch „schön“ sind. Es gibt ja nicht nur „ungewollt-kaputt“, sondern auch angenehm angebritzelt.

Eigentlich hat das Delay noch eine Loop-Funktion und ist damit mehr als ein einfaches Delay. Früher nannte man diese Form Freezing. Man spielt etwas ein und wiederholt sehr kurze Teile des Signals. Diesen Bereich stellt man um und „dreht“ ein wenig damit herum. Das ist nicht auf jedem Gerät gleich gut und klingt dementsprechend unterschiedlich. Am besten ist, die erste Demo dazu zu hören, dann ist sofort alles klar, versprochen!

Um es allerdings klar zu sagen, „Glitch“ steht hier nicht zu sehr für Zerstörung oder scheinbar ungewollte Bruchstücke, sondern eher für ein durchaus sauber laufendes Loop-Stück. Im zweiten Video werden die Möglichkeiten recht gut demonstriert.

Basis für die Techniker ist der Kern, der Juce genannt wird. Wir berichteten schon an anderen Stellen darüber, da auch andere Juce nutzen.

BSOD simulates the sound your laptop makes when it crashes

Finally! Now you don’t have to wait for your computer to start glitching out – you can make it happen yourself, with this inexpensive Max for Live device.

Okay, so technically what we’re talking about is a “stockastic sample freezing effect.” Since it’s a Max for Live Device, you can drop its audio-munching powers on any track you want, making for glitched out percussion, vocals, or whatever you like. But if you’ve ever watched a computer melt down and listened to the resulting sounds and thought, “hey, actually, I could use that” – this is for you.

The reason it matches a BSOD is, computer stability issues cause the digital audio buffer to “freeze” on particular sounds rather than continue to process buffered audio normally. (Digital audio systems give the illusion of running in real time, without losing a continuous stream of audio, by dividing digital audio into chunks and feeding those chunks in sequence to the audio card… so that if the machine falls behind a few samples, you won’t notice.)

This creation is the second Max for Live invention from Isotonik Studios today – happy Valentine’s Day, y’all – and carries the price of €9.52. For that, you get some control over the effect – especially since it isn’t actually crashing your machine. The developers describe the parameters as follows:

Freeze: control the gate frequency in time signatures
Width: make the gating wider or tighter
Dry/Wet: master dry/wet control

And all of this is MIDI-controllable.

If you want to live more dangerously, the classic Smart Electronix effect Buffer Override actually does screw around with your machine. The work of developer Sophia Poirier, this is the opposite of what would normally constitute a stable plug-in. The idea: it “overcomes your host app’s audio processing buffer size and then (unsuccessfully) overrides that new buffer size to be a smaller buffer size.”

Beware, as that will actually cause some hosts to, you know, crash. But Buffer Override is free. (Well, it’d be a bit strange to charge for that!)
