Interactive Patches

These are the patches being used in Wave Crossings. The patches were first modeled on Liz Phillips' Wavetable using analog synthesis. They were then made in Pure Data with modules taken from help files and online linked together and re-appropriated for the piece. . Liz and I have been working on the patches since early July. They process looped recordings by changing the pitch of playback and center frequency of a voltage-controlled filter based on live audio input. Another patch plays back live audio at regular pitch and transposed up. This patch also includes an inverted envelope follower that decreases the volume of playback as live audio gets louder.
