Attaching a work in progress, would love some feedback. Especially on the interface - I feel like there's a lot going on, with the delay lines, with the playback speed ratio... So if there's anything that doesn't feel intuitive, anything that could be simpler, anything that doesn't need to be there, let me know! Looking for "user feedback" !
The gist is this: you open two samples, and they loop in the background - it's "played" by periodically allowing the signal through, into delay lines. there's a fader to move between the two channels, and playback speed is determined by ratios, so that the layers are musically/harmonically related.
One way to use it: set up a bed of low-frequency sounds, and then double the speed (2 to 1 ratio), add some moments of a-perfect-fifth-above (3 to 2) and create melodies.
Here is an example, using clips from two piano pieces recorded to tape.
I've also used field recordings and sound effects, it's been fun to experiment
