Favorite audio & live audio mangling script on norns?

Does Granchild have a live input? That is what I am missing … shame I can´t code :smiley:

Because as previously said it is such a good sounding script! thx for pointing me there @eequeue

Bottom right! :slight_smile:


Wow I just totally overlooked that! My brain was ahh okay all four are the same … I don´t need to look at this concientious :smiley:

What an awesome script! Exactly what I was missin in my setup.


It was in the first post in granchild’s own thread. I’ve never used the script personally, but it being mentioned made me look at the thread and accidentally see the answer to your question :smiley:


Since you asked for the outcome. This is a little jam i recorded to test a new camera angle since my monitors broke and I had to play on a smaller setup and rely on headphones. I was so happy with the little jam and the @infinitedigits granchild script that I thought I could post it on the tube!

I really fell in love with granchild! It is exactly what I was missing!

That jam will def end up as a Track on my new EP!


Great stuff! It’s giving me “In a Silent Way” vibes.

Is there any script for Norns that applies different effects to incoming live sound at random, like the recently released Cannabits for the Organelle?

my immediate thought was norns mother, so you could just use cannabits itself.

For people like me who know nothing, I found the following on the Organelle site… "Cannabits selects a new effect at a rate of your choosing. You don’t get to pick the effect or set the parameters of the effect, so it’s pretty ‘hands off’ once you set the rate and the wet/dry mix.

There are 12 effects the patch chooses from:
bit crusher, chorus, comb filter, constant gardener (playback speed and pitch effect), delay, distortion, envelope follower, freeze, pitch shifter, reverb, ring modulator, and sines (aka ‘partial party’ port).

Once the patch picks an effect, it also randomly picks the parameters for the effect."

I thought about using mother, but apparently it only reliably runs PD scripts developed for organelle up to firmware 2.x. Cannabits runs on Organelle OS 4.x, therefore it may not work properly in Mother.
This is why I am looking for a native LUA script that does the same thing.

could you use a combination of toolkit and pedalboard?

@carltesta’s Sway does analysis-based processing, so it’s not quite random, but it’s pretty great and configurable.


Thanks for the recommendation! Sway gets random as far as what types of effects are used. Basically depending on how long a particular effect is active it will switch it out for a new one. All the while using audio analysis to determine the specific effect parameters.


Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for live granulators. I’d like to live record guitar in and be able to pitch it etc. ideally I’d like to be able to granulate on the fly, so arming a record buffer then filling it up (ala mlr) is important

You could put a Mutable Beads into a small effects pod. It has a buffer of variable lengths/qualities, live granular, pitch shifting, and can be a delay and reverb to boot.

Sorry, should have said I’m looking for script recommendations

My bad too sorry, I didn’t see you’d posted in the norns category.

I like granchild, I haven’t used any of the other scripts really but you can have a look here granulators | norns community


I’ve been getting fantastic results with Lepidoptery . It allows you to live-sample an input stream and freeze snippets of it, through a metaphor of butterflies pinned down on a grid.

It’s so much fun to squeeze soundscapes out of any source material.
