Ned’s background in sound design has put him in good stead to create a range of MaxforLive devices that can glitch, twist, destroy and rebuild your audio stream. As part of the Glitch Pack & Ned’s Audio Collection, Knobulator remains one his most popular to date!
KNOBULATOR – The Knobulator is a MaxForLive device for mashing up audio in realtime. Turn the knob and the effect comes on, stop turning it and it turns off. Fantastic for live performance as well as audio productions.
It’s parameters automatically map with the Blue Hand control of supported Live MIDI controllers like the AKAI APC40. Turn your beats into wabbly crunchy glitches, run some synths through it for instant wobble.
The Knobulator is a performance based multi effects device for performing beat based, quantized effects with minimal fuss and complete ease of use. What makes it unique from any device like it is the way effects are triggered. You simply turn the knob, from any position, and the effect is active, keep turning to adjust the effect, then stop turning to disable. Simple. You can set the qunatize for not only the timing the effect is launched, but also the sweep of the knob thats modulating it.
You can change the effect in realtime whilst turning the knob too, to create exciting glitch effects that will explode. Beat repeats, stutters, reverse, tunrtable effects, filters, bit reduction, delays, grains, they’re all there, ready go to without mappinh anything. Great for djs looking for intersting things to throw into their mixes, or mashup dudes looking for something quick and easy with still loads of control. A popular choice!
