Thanks a lot !
I've been testing your mapping that's great !
Many thanks for your compliments..
I just finished a new M4l device that allows you to tweak, store and recall complete filter configurations and play them back using the sequencer. It's rather exciting to hear a complete new filter configuration with each step of the sequencer. I didn't know midi was fast enough to transmit all that data. You can also download the device in in the preset area of the forum. (http://forum.arturia.com/index.php?board=251.0
Update: monday 20/2 I am temporarily suspending download to have a look at some unexpected bugs....expect it to be back up in a week or two....
Here's how it works:
The FilterJuggler allows you to store MatrixBrute Filter configurations and recall them using a Memory Strip. A Filter configuration consists of all six dial of the Steiner Filter, the six dials of the Ladder Filter and the master cutoff dial. The configurations can be stored in a memory strip with twelve storage locations.
The twelve stored filter configurations can be recalled by playing the keyboard, the sequencer or using the M1 macro switch.
The twelve slots in the memory strip are mapped to the chromatic scale. That is: if you play a "C" on any octave of the keyboard you'll hear the filter settings stored in the first memory slot, "C#" plays the second memory slot a.s.o.
Getting up and running...
Once you've loaded FilterJuggler into Ableton, you set a midi channel which sends midi to- and receives midi from the MatrixBrute.
Next you start twiddling your filters on the MatrixBrute, both Steiner and the Ladder filter.. Whatever you do is mirrored on the Filterjuggler, if not, something is wrong in your midi setup. The Panel switch on the MatrixBrute should be "off".
When you find something you like "shift click" on a location of the memory strip. This will store the current setting setting of the filter knobs.
Note: FilterJuggler can only store knob positions, no switches, as the status of these cannot be send and received over midi.
You continue to tweak and find another combination of filter settings that you like a.s.o up to twelve different combinations can be stored this way in the memory strip.
You can now use the M1 Macro knob to quickly move through all the filter combinations you've created. This allows you to take an existing MB preset and try what it sounds like with the configurations you've created. One small movement of the M1 know will create an entirely different sound.
An alternative is to play the keyboard or to start the sequencer. Playing the keyboard/sequencer will load a different filter configuration with each step of the sequencer. An effect that cannot be achieved with the Matrixbrute alone.
"write" saves current config.
"read" loads stored configurations.
"clearall" will clear the memory strip
