Haze is a four track live granular looper for Norns, optimised for Midi Fighter Twister, but also usable without it.
Incoming audio is recorded into an 8 second loop (with configurable feedback), and granular engine samples from this loop.
Each row represents a single track, and there are three banks of parameters, the UI shows currently active bank together with the parameter names and values.
Haze can be used without Midi Fighter Twister through “params” section on Norns, all parameters are MIDI mappable.
To use Haze with Midi Fighter Twister, add it as a first Midi device, and start Haze - no Midi mappings are needed. Midi Fighter Twister should be configured with “Midi Fighter Utility” where each encoder has no detent, has black colour, and is 3FH/41H ENC:
Here’s the config file that I use for MFT:
Haze.mfs (2.2 KB)
When used with Midi Fighter Twister:
- to start recording switch to first bank (with first side button) and click on encoder in first row - click again to stop recording
- to start playing click on last encoder in the row (all the other encoders don’t have any “click” functionality)
- switch pages with side buttons
When used with Norns only - the UI does nothing (other than display current values), the only way to interact with Haze is through the params menu. The options there should be pretty well described.
