A primer on psychoacoustic principles that sound designers can potentially take advantage of in their work. Links to external media and Pure Data patches available at: http://designingsound.org/2014/12/designing-sound-discussion-group-psychoacoustics-for-sound-designers/
“First off, Iâ€™ll repeat that thereâ€™s no Max4Live involved, and no external plugins. Itâ€™s all native Ableton devices. Secondly, in case you havenâ€™t read the review yet, Iâ€™d recommend that you do. It might help make the explanations Iâ€™m about to give a little clearer. Hereâ€™s how I did it:
Vinyl Scratch Emulation: I made an Operator patch generating white noise, with a Redux effect on it. I enabled Note Out on the editor and I mapped the touch position to a band pass filter.
Beat Repeat Control: I applied a Beat Repeater to a track, then mapped the On/Off messages on the VMeter to the Repeat button and the touch position to the rate.
AB Effect Sends: The pressure output is mapped to the A send (reverb on the return) and the touch position to the B send (delay on the return).
Crossfade: This is actually really easy. I chose â€˜crossfaderâ€™ mode in the editor and then mapped it to Liveâ€™s crossfader.
Tape Stop and Fast Forward: I enabled Note Out and Pitch Bend mode on the editor and loaded an Amen Break sample into Simpler on a track. I mapped the touch position to sample transpose and thatâ€™s it.
Chain Selector: This oneâ€™s obvious. I mapped touch position to chain selection. If you donâ€™t know what that is, youâ€™d better watch this.
Bass Filter and Tremolo: I mapped touch position to a a low pass filter on a track playing a bass clip and the pressure output to an Auto Pan amount knob.
Bass Filter LFO Rate: Also obviosu. The touch position is mapped to the LFO rate on an Auto Filter, synced to the beat.
Instrument: I enabled Note Out and Pitch Bend mode on the editor and mapped touch position to the transpose knob on an Operator patch.
Keyboard Volume and Vibrato: I mapped the pressure output to channel volume and touch position to the LFO amount on another Operator patch.”
