This simple key-scale remapper, with eight scales and transposition, fits in the Ula modular system. It picks up [channel:pitch:gate] messages from any source, remaps the pitch, and forwards the message to the Polyvoice multichannel controller on the same channel. Preset scales are major, minor, blues, and pentatonic.
|Ula Pitch Remapper|
Here are some tips on various ways to use pitch remapping for music.
|Chromatic||Output same as input.|
|Major||There are three different mappings to each of these standard scales. See Scale Variations, following.|
|Dorian||Interesting for melodic variation on classical themes.|
|Phrygian||Rarefied sounds, especially with pitch modulation patches.|
|Lydian||Often exotic with pitch modulation patches.|
|Mixolydian||Pleasing for many pitch modulation patches.|
|Blues||Pleasing for popular music compositions.|
|Blues Pentatonic||Provides harmonic sounds even with deep chords.|
|Reverse||Swaps notes around, interesting when duplicating patterns, recording, and playing drums.|
The design snoops resets to setup the lists for scale remap on system reset. To add a chord note, one could simply set this Ula module to snoop rather than receive point-to-point messages. If unfamiliar with these terms and the UIa ring methodology, please refer to the Ula 1.1 overview on this site.
