Software Annual subscription for Kaleidoscope presets and assets

I just launched my annual subscription for Kaleidoscope:



In summer 2014 Andrew Souter from 2CAudio asked me, if I wanted to be on the Beta-team for his new invention Kaleidoscope. At first I was bewildered by this program, then fascinated and I started delving deep into the possibilities of Kaleidoscope.

After it's release I spent many, many sleepless nights with Kaleidoscope creating images with ArtMatic and Photoshop or modifying images of instruments, human beings, plants and objects, extracting waveforms from samples, extracting tuning files from all sorts of acoustic sounds with Melodyne and designing hundreds of presets with these ingredients. Dozens of experimental videos were created since, testing these ingredients and experimenting with real-time sound manipulation in Kaleidoscope. I also provide tutorial videos available on my youtube channel (and in the video-tab on the right).

This subscription includes original images, waveforms and tuning files. Many presets borrow tuning files from either the expansion Architecture Vol. 1 released by 2CAudio or the free Scala tuning file-library which is available as shareware, as I see no point re-coding tuning files which have already been created and are ready to use. Ambient soundscapes, deep drones, complex tonal and atonal pads, experimental textures and minimalistic rhythms are the main focus of this sound library.
My presets sometimes are variations on a theme, so within a subscription set you will find several variations of a combination of images and tuning files or waveforms, exploring some of the infinite possibilities Kaleidoscope has to offer. Of course you can also ignore the presets and just use the images, waveforms and tuning files to create your own presets. How a preset sounds is totally pendent on the input signal, so I will also supply some samples from time to time with audio content which works particularly well with Kaleidoscope (sharp transients, noisy components, lot's of harmonics and dynamics). Some presets are saved using the internal noise generator of Kaleidoscope to excite the resonators, this can easily be changed turning down the noise volume slider in the program.

Every 4-6 weeks I send out a new set to all subscribers, all new subscribers can download the entire content in one compressed archive. The subscription price is fixed and will increase moderately when more content has been added. If a subscriber wants to renew his/her subscription after one year, she/he gets a 20% discount on the current subscription price.

Annual subscription price: € 53 EUR

The subscription currently contains: 442 presets - 275 images - 43 tuning files - 30 waveforms.

Set 01 uploaded on June 11th - 2015 containing:
  • 63 Presets
    43 images
    6 tuning files
    4 waveforms
    3 input samples (ocean drum waves)

Four fresh tempo-synced presets from the same family which I made this morning in one minimal music quartet, tweaking things on the fly while recording the video:

Three instances of Kaleidoscope using similar presets from the upcoming set no. 3 which are all based on a tuning file extracted from a bowed cymbal. Mixed on the fly, some reverb and delay applied. Input source for all 3 KS instances were 3 drum machines (Tremor) playing deep bass pulses.

String synth and shaker loop processed by one instance of Kaleidoscope using a preset from the upcoming set no. 4, some ÜberMod delays are processing the Kaleidoscope signal.



EDIT:

And another one:

One instance of Kaleidoscope processes an excerpt of a live recording of my orchestral composition Windschatten, the other instance of KS processes some male choir sounds recorded for a music theatre piece, some VRoom reverb is processing both instances. The KS presets are from the patchpool subscription series - set no. 4

I just sent out the link for set no. 4.

Kaleidoscope Subscription Set 04, uploaded on July 6th - 2015 containing:
  • *66 Presets
    *31 images
    *8 tuning files
    *5 waveforms
    *2 input samples: a rich granular pad scape, try using it with the presets Mystery Space 1 - 4, which need some sort of tonal input to unfold their mystery, using only noise will not sound good on those presets. And there is a fast metallic synth sequence in 80 BPM for general use with synced and unsynced presets.

The subscription currently contains: 244 presets - 137 images - 24 tuning files - 16 waveforms.

The latest audio track made with subscription presets (the involved tuning file was derived from a singing bird):

Three fresh KS presets in 3 instances of KS (chord low/high, deep drone) from the upcoming subscription set no. 5 on one nice ambient atmosphere, input source was an external modulated noise oscillator with some tempo-synced amplitude modulation for the 2 chords, some Relayer/B2/Uhbik Tremolo FX was applied.

Here comes a little Sunday morning meditation with Kaleidoscope, produced during a beautiful sunrise:

Four instances of Kaleidoscope using four similar presets from the patchpool subscription series, processing some modulated random noise, spring drum accents and a rainmaker texture. Root notes octaves are changed on the fly, 2 KS instances are also processed by GRM Tools Doubler FX (one for each). One instance of VRoom reverberates all 4 KS instances.

Two similar Kaleidoscope presets (using cloud and tree images) from the upcoming set no. 7 processing a noise sweep I made with Photosounder.



and some cloud music:

Three instances of KS using similar presets from the upcoming set, processing vocal whispering, vocal gibberish, bamboo chimes and a modulated noise rumble.

EDIT (much later):

More groove based stuff: three Kaleidoscope presets from the upcoming set based on a 7-8 time signature using the piano roll concept with a tuning file I made for these presets spreading out a Sus7 chord which varies every 2nd octave, processing a Groove Agent frame drum beat in 7/8 from my library Colliding Worlds and one of my Tremor beats, also in 7/8.

Here is another video I just made, stepping through all the “Universal Arc“ presets from this set, quite beautiful...

EDIT:

I forgot to mention:

As it has been requested so man times, Kaleidoscopists with a subscription-phobia can now purchase the entire collection as a discounted buyout (€ 45), meaning they get the library as it as at the point of their purchase.

Can't get much more new-agey than this - a single instance of Kaleidoscopce using a preset from the upcoming set, processing various modulated noise sources, the tonality and rhythm is created entirely inside the plugin.



----

EDIT (later)

I'm getting some great rhythmical textures and bass lines out of KS again, tonight for the first time I created an image with 5/8-rhythms after having done other odd time signatures before, it's quite groovy I must say...

Here is a jam with 2 instances of KS using 2 presets form the upcoming set, processing modulated white noise and a spring drum accent which plays every 2nd bar.

Here is a video featuring 4 patches from the upcoming set, mysterious microtonal glass chimes sort of thing, the tuning file was derived from a strange electronic texture I made with Reaktor (via Melodyne's scale detective), the images are made with ArtMatic/Photoshop, input sources are some modulated crackling fractal noise (Falcon) and stereo-phased ocean waves.

If you haven't done so, upgrade your Kaleidoscope to the public beta version (1.1.0) as all the patches from set 14 were made with that version and can't be played with the current release version.
