Gated audio sequencer for norns
“torii - a traditional Japanese gate which symbolically marks the transition from the mundane to the sacred”
I’ve always loved the sound of a lush pad or vocal being gated, so I set out to see if I could make that happen with norns. The technique is sometimes called “Trance Gating”.
Work in progress posted to get some feedback.
Code is still kinda ugly.
Submitted to community repo.
- Norns software version 200424
- Audio in, R library
- Grid optional
K2 : randomize sequence
K3 : bypass gates
E1 : change BPM
K1 HOLD + E1 : change seq length
E2 : change edit step
E3 : change filter amt per step
See Params menu for envelope values, filter envelopes, delays, etc. (LFO is non functional right now)
Sequence length is 1 to 32.
Row 8 buttons are the sequence steps
Rows 1-7 are a level amount for filter per step
For sequences longer than 16, scroll the grid side to side with E2
