current release: Beta 2 (18 Apr 2019)
so this is what Ive been up to lately
why’s its relevant here?
well a couple of reasons - underlying Orac is my project MEC ,
MEC is designed for ‘small pocket computers’ , and started off (and still is) a way for me to interface with expressive controllers - particularly the Eigenharp and Madrona Labs Soundplane.
and of course, this is carried thru to Orac, so Orac 2.0, not only supports MPE, but underneath we still have MEC providing support for the Soundplane (with updated code) and the Eigenharp…
I also plan to add t3d support (simple additional module) for Orac 2.0
so my goal, which Im pretty close to now, was to have a platform for expressive controllers that you could ‘carry around’, but one that is truly flexible … and was free, and completely open source.
Orac 2.0 is nearly there, expressive support, and a way to control the sound engine - and it can easily be extended by anyone, as all modules are written in pure data.
I hope with more platforms, I can build a small community around it , creating presets, and new modules.
finally, Im pretty excited by the Qubit Nebulae, and Eurorack support…
as Ive stated elsewhere, I don’t really want (nor can afford) a polyphonic eurorack module, but what I can do with Orac/Mec in Eurorack is have it multi touch polyphonic within the ‘nebulae voice’, with CV control for the engine, and then feed it out for effects and resonators (or I guess a filter in a ‘paraphonic style’)
anyway, busy time … but fun times ahead !
