Isotonik 6 - Master Template & Modular Series!

Post by S4racen on Sun Aug 15, 2010 11:08 am

Hi All,

I've just completed Isotonik Six, it's been a complete rewrite from the bottom up to address the cpu issues that some users had from running multiple slaves, Windows users reported problems when operating 4 tracks being controlled....

The latest version follows the Redbox so you can have as many tracks as you like and many of the functions are available without the use of slave devices eg.

1, Looping - Set various loop sizes a la Traktor for the clip/track in focus, 1, 2 or 4 bar or set your own start and end points. Double or Halve loops. You can now no longer set a loop that falls outside of the boundaries of the original clip. Using the Act/Solo/Arm buttons you can also set a two bar loop on any of the 8 tracks in focus of the Redbox and double or halve their size (plus turn loops on and off with visual feedback on the buttons of when a clip is looping)

2, Send Control - Fire audio to any of up to 9 sends with the press of a button, this can be set as momentary or as a toggle control

3, Device Control & Reset - Mimics the blue hand but gives you the ability with the push of a button to reset the racks values to preset value (which are also easily recorded)

4, Track Control - The track control knobs can be dynamically assigned to a second rack in an audio track, a send across all eight tracks, a rack within a return track or finally a numbered parameter across all 8 tracks eg. control all the bass's across all 8 tracks at the same time. As with the Device Control knobs reset values can be recorded and quickly recalled!

5, CDJ Control - Using the Act/Solo/Arm buttons you can play the highlighted clip, play the clip thats playing again or play the clip below the currently playing clip. This means you can quickly fire clips off that don't sit within the redbox.....

Under testing, Isotonik 5.9.2..... well with 8 tracks it simply crashed! With 5 being controlled CPU hit 100% with 4 tracks playing......

Isotonik 6.... 8 tracks being controlled, 8 clips playing..... CPU 43%!!

I'll continue tweaking but this version including some awesome audio content from Loopmasters will be available in the dropbox from lunchtime today, i'll try and record a walkthrough video shortly but there is a fully detailed manual available detailing every part of the functionality.

To get hold of a copy of the template or the manual hit me up on my blog http://thestudiosessions.co.uk, leave me your email address as a comment to get hold of the manual or follow the buy now link for paypal to get hold of the template along with my other devices:

R3turn - Dummy Clip control over racks within return tracks

F0llow - Automatic Follow actions at clip end and momentary control over dummy clips

Gl1tch - CDJ style beat repeats, you can manually reduce the end point of a glitch to give you that jarring noise

Any questions please feel free!

Cheers
D

Is 16 tracks of audio, all playing, all with slave devices in giving the full functionality of the device over everything you see!

A new one for you all....

http://vimeo.com/15197438



This device gives you quick and easy control over 8 sends of the track in focus, you can control them with dials or turn them on and off using the buttons A - H....

Combine the device with R3turn though and the real fun begins!!



Now mapping buttons 1 - 8 will not only route the audio of the track in focus to a return track but it will also fire a dummy clip that controls the rack within that return.....

More details at my blog thestudiosessions.co.uk including how to get hold of this and my other devices...

Hi All,

Just to let you know i'm going to be away for a week leaving in an hour or so, as the dropbox invitation process is a manual affair there may be some delay in sending new members the invites. I know i get a batch every month around payday so wanted to apologise in advance... I'm taking my laptop with me so if i can get online there won't be a problem...

Cheers

Hi All,

Been a bit quiet for a week or so whilst i've been organising a new set, warping and splitting classics and acapellas! In the meantime i've found a bit of spare time to finish the last couple of features on my main Isotonik template....

1: Dummy - Is now fully integrated into the M4ster device, when you press the Send B button a floating window pops up giving you a visual on the dummy clips available, to reset to manual keep Send B Pressed whilst pressing the tap tempo button or to change the dummy clips keep Send B pressed whilst you press Nudge - or +

2: CDJ Play - Press Metronome and Track Select 8 and the Activator / Solo / Rec buttons give you the ability to launch the highlighted clip, launch the currently playing or last clip played whilst the lat option is to play the clip below the currently playing one....

As i've been playing it came to me that whilst i wrote the device i still forget mid set how to reach all of the options, one of the downsides of the excellent NativeKontrol work was for me that i couldn't memorise what each of the buttons did, (NativeKontrol by the way still has functionality that Isotonik doesn't) as a result i invested in Max4Live and so now i've returned to my original plan of having a proper GUI that updates to let you know what's in control...

Obviously to change the focus of anything needs a press of a Mode Button (Pan, Send A, B, C, Metronome etc..) so when you press any of these a floating window will pop up to guide you....



As ever the entry to the dropbox which includes all future updates is through the paypal button on the right....

And in other news, i'm just sitting with my new Launchpad!!

Cheers
D
