DIRTY TRICKS DEVICES

Brickwall – A band-pass/band-reject brickwall filter; the slope can go up to 192 dB of attenuation per octave (in other words it can be extremely selective)

Growler – A real-time pitch shifter with feedback, transient detector and envelope follower: ideal to create “monster” voices and other scary effects.

Interruptor – As the name implies, this device creates interruptions in the audio stream. It can also statistically sample and hold the signal.

Klamper – Clamps the signal with a few special features.

Mod – With Mod you can modulate any parameter of any device (native or Max for Live), any plug-in and any track in the Live environment. You can use an LFO (choosing among different waveforms) or a step sequencer to control the parameter.

Click the button on the upper left of the device (labelled Map), then click the parameter you want to control: the name of the button changes from Map to the name of the controlled parameter. To release the parameter (i.e. to stop controlling it) you can click on the red “R” button.

Ovrdrv – Ovrdrv is a distortion device: it goes from very subtle to total destruction. It can operate on the signal below (Saturation) or above (Excitation) a given frequency.

Philtre – The Philtre device has two configurations:

  • Dub: dual low-pass high-pass state variable filter with resonance and overlap factor.
  • Morph: a triple low-pass/band-pass/high-pass state variable filter with resonance and continuous morphing between the filter types.

Reduktor – Decimates and reduces the bit depth of your signal. It is dual band, i.e. the reduction can be applied only to a portion of the signal.

Ringer – A dual band ring modulator with distortion and delay with feedback.RingPitch: Frequency (in MIDI note values) of the modulator.

Shifter – A dual band frequency shifter with feedback delay

Swarmer – A “superchorus”, excellent to create super fat synth sounds (and more). It is composed of a chain of modulated delay lines.

Vkdr – This is a vocoder effect. Not to be confused with the “phase vocoder”, the vocoder is a filter effect which analyses a signal and recreate it using a broadband source (for instance a white noise) and a bank of filters.
