Skip to 5 min for the audio demo (note sound quality is not the greatest since this is an 8 channel instrument recorded on a mono digital camera...)
Sampling, midi-controlled loop manipulation, and multiband spatialization are explored in this project. A single channel of audio input is processed through a looping engine and a custom 8 channel filtered feedback delay spatialization effect. A Korg Nanokontrol midi controller is tightly coupled to to the looping engine, allowing the performer to trigger recordings of up to seven unique loops, manipulate playback rates and loop directions, and adjust output levels. A collection of prerecorded found sounds are also available. Each of these dry recordings may be panned incrementally around the sound field. Signals sent to the multiband spatialization effect are passed through a bank of bandpass filters, separating out low, mid, and high frequency ranges. These filtered inputs are then processed separately through unique filtered feedback delay lines for each of the eight output channels. The outputs of each delay line are randomly cross-faded with each other, resulting in echoes and resonances that glide through the eight channel sound field in real time.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
