So, I just purchased the UMPF RE.
This is another surprise that I didn't think would do what I had hoped it would do, but it actually does it quite well!
I was looking for an RE that would give me the ability to loop my random bits of audio, give them glitch (chop) effects, and allow for me to get all Max/MSP with 'em. This RE basically provides me with the audio playback device that I needed to do such a thing, and it's all up front.
I've pointed out the 2020 Beat Machine and Cconfin in a few other posts, and this allows me to get there. Couple this with the Kompulsion drum sequencer, and some of the other granular devices, and now it seems like I have a very adjustable, yet controllable, version of these Max/MSP apps.
And holy crap, that compressor - I took a bass drum drum sample that I made in Orangator back in 1999 (old Windows synth), and it's like getting punched in the gut. I can put in my chord loops and UMPF does some beautiful things to them, gating and chopping. The reverb and delay are beautiful, and I can just level them out very easily. Volume and timbral adjustment to the maxxx!
Wish I thought of how to use this sooner, because it really makes sense. Very handy, can't wait to see what happens when I start adjusting the rest of the glitch stuff outside of the UMPF, on separate channels. Nice RE, just had to look at it with a different set of glasses.
