cyborg fugue

we are borgue
you will be harmonized

Borgue is… an autotuned transposing delay and looper. In case you needed one of those.

  • Set all the delay times to 0 to automatically harmonize
  • Set the delay times short to arpeggiate
  • Set the delay times to a bar or several to have yourself sing a fugue with yourself
  • Set the transposition of each delay voice, and optionally invert it around the root of your scale. All notes will stay in-scale.
  • Set the pitch spread of each delay voice, to vary between a monotone and wide-jumping intervals.
  • Set the speed of each delayed voice independently, including backwards or stalled if you want.
  • Freeze a voice to loop the delay. You can still transpose and mess with the speed of looped content.
  • Set a secondary delay on each voice to repeat it and make a sonic mess all over the local quadrant.
  • There’s an option for L input to be processed and R input to be passed through unprocessed
  • Play with formants using the PSOLA-based formant-preserving (or formant-tweaking) pitch shifter, or spread grains all around time with the granular pitch shifter.

Yeah, there’s a lot.

Requirements

Norns. Some way to get monophonic pitched audio in. That’s it.

Just got to mess with this this afternoon a bit. Absolutely beautiful. There is some wizard level shit going on behind this script that I can only hope to one day understand.
