description: a quantized delay with time bending effects

tags: audio_fx


this is blndr - my first patch for norns. blndr is a quantized delay with optional time bending effects in the stereo field.

the line-in audio is fed into a delay loop for a duration of one quarter note, so it automatically becomes quantized to the bpm (ENC1). the amount of delay can be dialed in with level (ENC2) and feedback (K1+ENC2).


the delay loop is randomly time shifted based on the probability from the spin parameter (ENC3). the audio from the delay loop is then fed into a second delay loop that is also time shifted and panned randomly.

the K2/3 are used to quickly speed up/down the bpm to 1/3 intervals to get some cool polyrhythms (good for drums).

you can use K1+K2 to mute incoming audio.

you can use K1+K3 to switch to reverse mode.

this would not have been possible without the stellar softcut tutorial and inspiration of randomizing speed shifts from bounds.
