Trying to use the soundplane for something experimental which is basically a surface for traveling through a single long sample, selecting cool points and then being able to play those grains pitch-wise but with the ability to travel as well using the continuous surface.
At points if it gets disorienting, it's like trying to hone in on a radio signal using coarse and fine tuning to discover something.
Soundplane is also responding to pressure as well a x position and relative to where you first touched a pitch. I don't have y connected but I could. Pressure controls volume envelope.
arc|tangent is a new monome arc app I am working on for high resolution control of anything in a generic sense with a lot of options for routing on the fly. Resolutions are variable from highly quantized to pretty much unlimited resolution if you are willing to spin the dial enough times. Visual feedback on the arc helps you understand what is happening. This allows for very high resolution control of scrubbing through a large sample in coarse or fine increments and control of many other parameters at high or low resolution.
The sound source is Monolake - Granulator. I am just controlling it in an unusual way and with finer control than you can do with the M4L patch controls alone.
The sample is a Stretta sample of a bunch of raw takes from a modular session of his. It is totally raw unedited material.
This was a very first rough test. There are so many tweaks you can make to make the control more musical. This is very exciting and fun. Different material yields totally different results and you can approach it in many ways.
