LoopDrive updated to version 4

11Dec

The LoopDrive plugin received a major update. The version 4 of it was posted a long time ago in the SynthMaker forum, now this is the official release. I had to wait for a stable version of SynthMaker so that’s why there was a big delay.

There are many new features and most of the old parts are now optimized, here are some of the most significand changes:

LoopDrive 4 pattern manager

  • Nearly every part of the audio processing has been optimized in assembler
  • compared with version3, this version is up to 3 times faster
  • added a pattern manager, that allows up to 8 different sequencer and LFO patterns that are switchable through midi keys
  • load & save, copy & paste parts or whole patterns. There are also some default patterns.

LoopDrive 4 LFO Step sequencer

  • the wave LFO has been replaced by a step/matrix LFO, so you can set volume, balance, filter cutoff, filter resonance, overdrive amount and grain pitch for every single step
  • you can scale the modulation amount  for a whole pattern of the step LFO with a single knob
  • each mouse move in the step sequencer now highlights the used wave slice
  • you have the option to mute a complete step with the right mouse button in the step sequencer
  • updated the FX Routing GUI to make it easier to understand

LoopDrive 4 Slicer

  • added interpolation option to the slicer, so you can avoid aliasing effects when you need it
  • fixed a problem with the mix knob of the distortion section


There are also some more changes that I propably forgot, but try it yourself. If you like it, leave a comment.

Bug fix for LoopDrive plugin

16Jul

I’ve fixed a minor bug in the LoopDrive VST plugin. If you load the plugin with its initial loop, there was a error message saying that it couldn’t find the wave file. I removed this message, and if you now load in wrong wave files it doesn’t use the windows message box for showing the error message, because in some hosts it causes the audio drivers to stop working.

 

The fixed LoopDrive3 VST-Plugin can be found here.

And if want to play with its source, here is the SynthMaker schematic.

First plugin: LoopDrive3

15Jun

Here is the first plugin in this blog. I’ve made it long time ago, and as image-line asked me to update it, so they can include it in their new FruityLoops Studio8, I did it.

To give users a chance to play with it without having to buy FL-Studio, I decided to publish it here.

 

What it is: It’s a Loop slicer and rearranger with some weird FX. So you load in a drum loop wave, set the tempo, and LoopDrive slices it into beats. Now you can use the build-in sequencer grid to rearrange the beats. There is also a “reverse sequencer” which enables you to play selected beats backwards. After rearranging the loop you can apply a filter, bit crusher, distortion, overdrive and even a grain FX. There’s also the possibility to set the FX order, which gives you more control over the FX.

There are also some other things that I haven’t mentioned here, so try it yourself.
