AFX - MTS-ESP Suite (ODDSound x AFX collab)


Recommended Posts

interesting, looks like it should work well for many setups. bit pricey, but it does seem a pretty powerful bit of kit so that's not unwarranted, and they mention they've been working on it to some degree or another for years. i'm sure if you've just gotta have microtuning on all your stuff, synced up, quickly, and relatively easily, the $110 price tag is likely worth it.

seems like RDJ is basically just a consultant/promoter tho. they've got one quote from him and mention only that "Four years ago we started discussing the current state of tuning in electronic music making with Richard James" but that's it. :cerious:

If he can help kickstarting someone to sell a gif for over $100.000 then he can help these guys with selling this plugin for sure.

That’s so dark and kinda offensive joyrex. Why would you assume he’s made anything from this? Ik you’re a fan so maybe your just being funny, no disrespect meant.
Didn’t he say he made zero from similar endeavors?

Yeah he said that and why would he being interested to get money out of it if he not have been coding, design layout and heavy work.

The intresting fact is just what this thing do sound wise.. For me who likes to play around with synths and stuff the tuning part is one of the "least" fun parts.
People like to talk about Granular, FM synthesis, Wave tables, Many LFO's, effects etc.. I don't know if this gonna be a massive hit..

If this legit works seamlessly, easily, across all plugins within a DAW then it's pm a game changer. Over the last few years I've been playing around a little bit with scala files but it's been a cumbersome process. In particular, trying to do what AFX does when making each note it's own specific microtuning. Doing this but being able to apply to all VST's in a project would be so amazeballs. 

Will try this out tonight...

Maybe he’s having a bad day. We all do. It’s no big deal.

surely it would be pretty easy to just put out a Play Store app that shits out Colundi material. can i buy that instead? i don't know how to use DAWs.

I wonder how much this "collab" netted him...

That's a bit pessimistic. He has been talking about Microtuning for years and years and has voiced his displeasure for the lack of microtuning pretty much everywhere. Richard doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would waste his time on something he doesn't care about in itself.

yeah need to wait and find out more. I have a feeling that in this case he has been very involved considering it is something important to him. Also, he is probably making money from it, but good ideas are supposed to make money yeah?

I'll give the demo a shot.  I like the idea of microtuning and non-western scales, but not enough to leap over all the technical hurdles in my setup so far.

Well, based on what others are saying, it sounds like (and the jury is still out on that) he didn't have much involvement beyond lending his name, although I would think Richard wouldn't do that unless he had some input. My quotes around "collab" were to more ask the question of what was his level of involvement, and of course he deserves to be compensated if that's the case.

And to add - I have no problems with him making a living - especially with how little music seems to bring artists these days (outside of the mainstream).

seems like you have to update all your plugins for it to work. hmmm I really would like a simple solution for tuning as the current way its implemented in logic by loading tun files does not really work well with all plugins and some tun files sound really broken like just pitched up very high. some plugins do a great job others do not 

also the free version does what logic can do by default but maybe other daws like live etc can make use of it

that's friggin' AWESOME (re @fxbip) Love it. 

Ok, I've spent the better part of the evening trying to get this to work. Using Ableton 10 (can't afford to upgrade to 11 quite yet) so I think this may be borking a lot of things. I updated Serum and got it to play nice (it perfectly picked up the tuning automatically). However, using the Max4live wrapper for the client doesn't seem to have any effect on any synth.

The way this is supposed to work, you place the Max4live wrapper on the same track as your VST (since Live disallows more than one midi device of this sort per track) and it should transmit the re-tuned data from the master to the vst synth. Or, ableton native devices. haven't gotten a single one to work (note mode sort of seems to work, but it ends up playing 2 pitches at once). 

Packing it in for the night - suspect if I had 11 with the MPE device capabilities it would work better - but I'm a little surprised that the M4l doesn't seem to be playing nice/as intended....

      ❤️ Love this as much as VLR's two afx mix sets. Neat mix!
      Also similar megamixes for Plaid, Boards Of Canada and Autechre on his sc account but can't be arsed to crosspost them.

      I really want to ask, is that Richard singing? I would like to know, and what you think about this peculiar song!
      Greetings.

      I got to thinking how many great tracks make up Richard's Analogue Bubblebath series, over the 5 official releases, the ABB 5 test pressing, and the tracks on the SoundCloud Dump identified as ABB6, and wondered - which release overall is the best?
      If you haven't heard any in recent times, you need to reacquaint yourself with them - there are some superb tracks! Some of my personal faves:

      AFX Analogue Bubblebath 5 CAT 034 Rephlex Aphex Twin RARE VINYL
       
      "Hi, this is a rare copy of Analogue Bubblebath 5 by AFX aka Aphex twin.
       
      CONDITION:
       
      LABEL: Has CAT 34 written in turquoise water based felt tip on both sides, 1 side is smudged, whether it can be removed is up to the buyer to try if they want, it's only felt tip, but it was probably written on there 12 or 13 years ago.
       
      VINYL: Excellent condition apart from 1 very very minor surface scratch, which is so shallow as to be nearly impossible to photograph. Anyway I attempted to point it out. It's probably been played a couple of times judging by marks by the centre hole.
       
      SOUND: I'm not going to play this on my old record player as it will probably damage it more than anything but just looking at the condition is enough to tell me that it'll be absolutely fine.
       
      SLEEVE: Will ship it in the inner sleeve it came in."
       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Currently sat at £255, ends next Monday evening. Could be wrong, but this might be Ceephax selling...?
