A weird stereo delay effect for external audio.
Here’s my second Norns script. After the slightly more elaborate nmQuadroDubber, I wanted to make something simpler. As an exercise, I tried to create a kind of chained delay effect that fades in and out and also changes pitch. The user interface should display simple graphics then, instead of text. Coding this was fun! I find nmRain works well with drone music and plucky, minimal sound collages. Jazz music becomes funnier too
- External audio input (or audio from Tape)
- MIDI input (optional)
E1: choose cloud
K2: make it rain
K3: make it windy
E3: cloud altitude
While a rain drop falls, it accumulates sound. As it hits the ground it sets the audio free, while it runs slowly into the earth. The higher the clouds the longer the rain drop falls. Wind may blow the clouds up or down.
v0.0.5 - initial release
v0.0.6 - max delay time increased to 4 secs, freezing bug should be fixed (whoops)
v0.0.7 - fixed the edge case(?) of rain button mashing, which would also freeze the script. rain button mashing is now a feature and can be used to make more than one cloud rain at a time
v0.0.8 - the rain won’t stop on its own anymore
v1.0.0 pan fix
It is what it is Let me know if you find any use for it or if you have ideas for improvements or feature additions.
