Isotonik Studios have released Aisles, a harmonic arpeggiator for Max for Live users, available for £20.00.
Aisles creates complex and evolving melodic patterns. Aisles draws inspiration from the Rhythmicon, the world’s first electronic drum machine unveiled in 1931.
It features five independent sequencer lanes (gate, velocity, octave, warp, and trigger), which can be customized to create unique rhythmic patterns. The rhythmic pulses generated by the device follow an arithmetic progression, so that for every beat of the fundamental (1), the second partial (2) beats twice, the third partial (3) beats three times, and so on.
This results in each pitch moving at its own rate, similar to the lanes of a highway or the movement of people through the aisle ways of public spaces. Aisles also includes various quantization options, allowing you to shape the final output.
Aisles is a generative music dream machine! When a chord is fed into the device, every note moves at its own speed in relation to the root note/pulse. As a result, each pitch moves through the five sequencer lanes independently, creating evolving sequences built on harmonic ratios from the overtone series.
With every note running at its own unique rate, Aisles can spice up your monophonic melody or bassline by injecting it with stuttering rhythms or quantized grooves.
When the Ratio parameter is set to 0%, all notes move at the same speed, allowing you to create accelerating or decelerating chord sequences using the Warp lane or cascading motion with the Octave lane.
Create unique rhythmic patterns from harmonies! Define a new kind of backbeat for your productions through various combinations of the five onboard sequencer lanes.
