Some great chords KiNK did at Boiler Room

Post by Synth » Mon Nov 19, 2012 6:50 pm

Hello!

I've been wondering how Kink managed to make those headphones make chord sounds in this perfect liveset he done.
It's at about 10:30 that guy with him playing.
If anybody has a clue please share!

Cheers!

the headphones are being used as a microphone (just plug them into an input instead of an output... not technically perfect but it works). I presume that he is using something that will generate a trigger message from an audio input. This is creating a gate message, probably midi. I'm sure you can find something like this in most DAWs or maybe a VST. These gates are triggering chords in a polyphonic synth... sounds a bit like Akkord patch in Reaktor.

^ that or he may be also just running the audio input from the phones into a resonator type effect or sth... haven't seen the set though

yep that could be it actually. that would just be audio from phones straight into Resonator, no midi generation.

it's just the resonator. i've seen his liveset couple of times and talked to him quite a bit. He isn't the guy that uses Reaktor. His DAW is already kind of a Reaktor.
