Default Trance Gate Effect

Hi, I have made a very basic JS trance gate effect. You can separately control the pattern for left and right, adjust the pulse width, and create different feels by adjusting the pattern steps per beat. There is a rudimentary graphical display to help demonstrate what the sliders are doing.

It currently re-triggers itself on every beat. I am trying to decide whether it should just do this on beat 0 instead. Any thoughts? (BTW Justin, did you realise that if you have the word "trigger" in a comment, it makes the trigger buttons appear even if you are not using the trigger variable?)

Updated:



Download v0.4 from REAPER stash.

I've made a slight update. There is an additional pattern length slider and the pattern slider bit order is reversed which should make it a bit more intuitive. I've also slightly adjusted the range of the sliders.

I have left it retriggering on every beat. I had originally assumed that beat_position went back to 0.0 at the start of every measure, but it constantly goes up, leaving no way that I know of to detect the start of a new measure. (that will teach me not to test my effect with a single measure looping!).

The download location is the same as before.

Thanks Mark, this works like a charm.
Works better at slower speeds, nice and easy to adjust.
I'm at Bannister Park by the way.

Thanks Mark. It is very very cool.
It would be nice if one could create patterns with mouse by clicking the pattern view.

thanks zappadave, I'm in Bitterne. Yes, I have found the pulse width is only really worth using with pattern lengths of 4.

Yes, I might see if I can add that when I get some free time. It shouldn't be too hard.

I've added mouse handling now, so it is much easier to set patterns. Download link is the same (see first post)
