Scalomat 2013

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Sep 22 2013

I have updated the Scalomat (for previous version see:

Scalomat is a scale dependent keyboard for note entry.

  • In its actual version Scalomat fits the number of the pads per column automatically to the number of notes per scale and the vertical number of pads to the number of octaves.
  • Keynote and lowest octave can be set separately.
  • Beneath 15 standard scales selectable via drop down menu Scalomat also contains a custom scale that can be set on a little keyboard.
  • Keyvelocity can be set on the big fader on the right or it can be a random value between two ends of a Rangeobject.
  • Midichannelselection on drop down menu and additional Kill Midi switch (for accidently hung notes).
  • 3 Playstyles for Pads: “normal” – direct note on/off by touch; “switch” – switch notes on and off; “sustain” – sends delayed note off message indicated by release time on pad and controlled with a slider (0-15 seconds). Playtypes combineable during play.
  • And finally a little Programm change module for selected Midichannel.

    Modumat [update 2013]

    0 Comments | This entry was posted on Sep 16 2013

    Its been a while since I posted some new tools or add ons…. but now I have found some time to update the “Modumat”, one of my first Lemur modules.

    “Modumat” does step modulation of Midi Control Change data on up to 16 steps. This can be linked to any function like filters, velocity, pan or whatever. The modulation can be send stepwise (default) or as a continious line (interpolate). There is a range for the output (e.g. if you only want filter to vary between 34 and 56 instead of 0-127) and a range for the used steps (16 is maximum). The new version6 got also a row of random-switches beneath the sliders – if a switch is activated the corresponding slider will get a new random value shortly after it is triggered. This brings in some variation. As you can control the position of random and the amount of output that is still interpreted by a range, I like to call it “controlled random”.

    All values can be saved in 15 presets. Saved slots are highlighted. To erase the highlighting press preset 0 and 14 parallel in play mode. This only erases the highlighting, to erase a preset just override it with a new preset.

    The output can be routed to any Midichannel and controller number by a drop down menu (sending to Miditarget 0 on Lemur).  There is a syncronised version (listening to clock input on Miditarget 0) and a unsynced version. Both using only half the screen, so there is enough space to combine it with a small key or a 2nd modumat on one interfacepage.

    You can download Modumat from the Liine user section:

    Here is a video from early 2009 which shows one of the first versions of Modumat. It does not contain all features (random switches, presets, Midirouting are missing) but it gives an idea how to use the Modumat.

    Enjoy :)

    Here is a new video about my Sequencomat – that Midi stepsequencer I made in MaxMSP for the Jazzmutant Lemur…. was about time – the last video is 9 month ago and introduced V3.2, while I release V3.3 in March…

    Here I demonstrate some new functions in V3.3:

    • free definable scales, using a pentatonic based on D#
    • random on note
    • transpose (scale dependent)
    • color scripts, changing all control colors
    • autosave
    • and more…

    For details see the manual of Sequencomat V3.3:

    What kind of creatures are they?
    And is it microcosm or macrocosm?
    great work!

    a friend of mine has made an awesome album:

    I met Forian in Aachen some years ago. Together with Daniel he had a local radio show called Beatboxer and we did some jams. During last year, Florian always answered the typical question”new tracks?” with “yeah wait….i am planning to do an album.” So now here it is and……wow!

    Florian, deep respect!  – it really was worth waiting.
