AUXTURE is a unique exploratory sampler and sequencer (AUX-Seq) which enables the user to manipulate and record single samples or entire folders of samples through gesture, randomness and modulation. Unexpected results are achieved via the audio exploration of single samples or entire folders through gestures, randomness and modulation. The software comes bundled with a ‘Slices’ folder containing 115 free to use samples.
AUXTURE processes your loaded samples across a myriad of random parameters. The results open up a unique portrayal of your sound.
When AUXTURE receives a note, it applies an exploratory set of processes resulting in unique outputs based on unexpected outcomes or happy accidents applied to your sample set.
It chooses a random sample from its memory according to a freely settable probability. It then plays it back with a rate proportional to the pitch.
Some parameters related to sample playback are directly settable, such as loop mode, pitch shift and detunes, while others are based on chance, such as choosing another sample or reverse playback.
A random delay of a few milliseconds allows a rapid and unpredictable timbre variation, while frequency and ring modulations alter the sample more heavily. For a subsequent smoothing of the sound and to ensure complete processing there are digital distortion, delay, a weird reverb and two second order filters.
Features: Multi-effect software module featuring:
2 x Second Order Filters with cut-off, resonance and gain controls
Bandpass, Notch and Shelf Filters
Midi and key mapping
The default playback mode is looping the sample during sustain phase, it's possible disabling this behaviour. It's also possible to set a sample change and reverse playback probabilities.
