Description : Cracklefield is an advanced generative sequencer for Kontakt, featuring cellular multidirectional and interactive patterns that can create amazingly unique musical phrases and rhythms.
REQUIREMENTS: full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or newer.
Cracklefield is a unique, generative music machine, inspired by cellular automatons and early videogames. I wanted a sequence of where the elements could interact with each other, creating a dynamically evolving patterns. The sequencer in Cracklefield is called a field.
It can be used as a track playing position.
Forward or backward.
In Cracklefield tracks, all tracks are shared by the same two-dimensional space, each track being represented by a cursor. Cursors can travel in any direction, horizontally, vertically or diagonally, each at it’s own rate. Can you be set to bounce off the field edges or obstacles, here named ‘walls’ The fun part is that cursors can bounce off each other.
Imagine several sequencer tracks playing ‘pong’ with each other.
INSERT YOUR OWN SOUNDS
Most likely, nobody has already.
There are mostly acoustic / electroacoustic, radio or electronic stereo speakers, a copper rod mallets made from contact microphones, a musical instrument set, glass chimes or wire-brushed crash cymbals.
If you want to make it a bit different, make it a bit different, so it’s easy to get it.
Cursors can interact with the field, paint, erase or flip cells, build or destroy walls. As well as shift whole field rows or columns. It’s a playground for building evolving patterns.
Cracklefield can also use a langton’s ant to animate cursors. This is what a cell of steps is. For example, it is visited.
Sounds very surprisingly, it creates surprisingly complex structures.
There are several types of patterns and patterns.
It can be used to capture multichannel MIDI clips, which can be exported to a DAW by drag’n’drop mechanism.
Crackelfield can be assigned to them in nka files. Presets can be loaded seamlessly, without stopping the sequencer.
You can also filter it. For example, load sounds.
It comes with 120 presets, to showcase some possible setup ideas. There is also a way to explore the instrument.
Cracklefield can act as an apreggiator.
Notes from the chord being currently held.
Arp patterns can be modulated (transposed according to cursor position), transposed.
The arp is great fun to tinker with.
