Download the provided Retex amxd file to your hard drive and drag it onto any Audio Track within Live, it’ll then create it’s visuals based on the Audio you play through it rendering out to the World Viewer device where you can mix it’s output together with other World Modules and add further visual effects to the result.
reTex seems like a simple device at first; it’s a 2D plane covered by any image you put on it; but dig deeper and you’ll realise how many essential visual techniques can be achieved with it. Slowly rotate reTex and the 3rd dimension it sits in can be dramatically revealed. Layer multiple instances of reTex and offset the textures at different speeds to get a simply parallax effect (commonly used in animations) to give your visual set depth and movement. Use the caleidoscope parameter to collapse any image into a constantly evolving and folding geometric patterns. And of course, like all of Chris’ devices, the texture can be modulated by any incoming audio stream.
Available controls include: Layer, Position, Depth, Gain, Slide, Dimensions, Scale, Size, Extrude, Draw Mode, Fill Mode, Line Width, Point Size, Shape, Transparency, Lighting, Color, Brightness, Peak, Speed, Rotate.
