Here is some new patch of mine:
ALFATAPE is an emulation of a simple 8-track-recorder.
It is built to use with a KORG nanoKONTROL2 controller.
You can re-assign, of course, to use with a different controller
You have to use some midi-controller - only menu-kind-of-things are
accessible via mouse.
EDIT: As for the new version (0.1.1) this is no longer true! You now can also
use your computers keyboard to control ALFATAPE. New Link below!
The goal is simple:
- no mouse-use
- no visualized audio
- 100% destructive
- good transport-behavior
- easy to use
- 4 markers (set or go to)
- choice of two loops (range or punch)
- recording while looping
- slow rew/forward (while listening)
- fast rew/forward (while listening)
- bounce tracks together (in real-time)
- write out audio quickly as wav (rough-mix)
- "open", "save as" or "eject" tape
- 44.1k or 48k
- change input of individual tracks easily
- import audio to track (placing at zero)
In the main-folder you find a .png of the nanoKONTROL2 with the names of the
individual buttons/knobs/sliders (yellow) I'm referring to as for shortcuts and
You'll find a KORG nktrl2_data-file too which you can use for flashing your
nanoKONTROL for the use with ALFATAPE. In order to do so, you have to use
an application from KORG, called KORG Kontrol Editor. I used the KORG Kontrol
Editor v.1.3.0 under Linux with wine without any problems. This is not about PD,
but it's anyway a nice little peace of software: You can alter how the buttons/
knobs/sliders of your nanoKONTROL behave (momentary or toggle) and a lot
of other useful things...
Here's the zip:
You can alternately download ALFATAPE from my site too:
Hope you like it!
It's still alpha - I'm glad to hear what questions/problems you encounter.
