triggering modular from different sound sources

Post by muhammed » Fri Sep 30, 2016 6:42 pm

is it possible that human as master clock for example when drummer begins the play drum analog or digital sequencer can be triggered by drummmers playing ? if drummers playing tempo's changes , sequencers tempos keep up with drummers paying ?

second example; imagine that I have akai lp8 for finger drumming and DAW(ableton live) when I begin to play abletone's drum kit , an output signal must be sent to analog or digital sequencer and my modular stars to play itself same as my playing tempo if my playing tempo changes ,sequencer tempo should be change

in conclusion I am master clock and my modular is slave
is it possible somethink like that or if you have better idea please share your thoughts here

There's also Beatseeker, it's another Max for Live device.

I don't know anything about it but InTime came up during a Google search, it's another software solution.

There's been audio beat matching hardware used by DJs in the past, try google searching on that. RedSound and Peavey(!!!) both offered devices at one point. They work best with four on the floor kick drums.

If you are working with a modular system, look into envelope followers.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

, ı watched beatseeker video it seems that if ı send clock out from daw to my modular it will be perfectly synched with my playing speed , according to beatseeker explantion ableton adapts to drummer's tempo right ? but there must be latencey ? beacuse beeseeker calculates drummer's bmp then applies it to ableton' bpm after all of that ı send to clock out to my analog sequncer, ı am not sure but there will be latency when ı change my tempo my analog sequencer synched at the same time ?
I will look into your other suggestions thank you

This is a little OT, but I think this is one of the greatest sentences I have read in years. So profound.

Clocks are tricky... Basically, the main problem is that you need time travel to be able to anticipate tempo changes :mrgreen:

For simple single hits, you can use comparators. This one looks particularly nice and flexible for the task:
