~moduLaRe~ is mainly a personal tool for processing live flute sound in a creative way, but at the end it became something interesting that I think is worth sharing. The tool is based on work done by other people, in particular on a patch by Stephen Christopher Stamper (and other people that kindly shared their work, please see the acknowledgements in the user manual). I’m mostly interested to the flute, but in principle it should work with any input provided. ~moduLaRe~ is conceived as a “live performance” tool: my set-up is composed by a laptop, a midi keyboard, a microphone and a Korg NanoKontrol. The NanoKontrol allows the player to interact with the instrument easily and minimizes the use of mouse, giving much more freedom when interacting with a musical instrument. The computer keyboard is used for controlling the patch parameters as well. The user has 4 possible inputs/controls: pc keyboard, MIDI keyboard, Korg NanoKontrol and microphone. Controllers are connected on the audio board and to the PC. Note that even without the Nanocontrol and midi keyboard still microphone and pc keyboard provide useful inputs. The following is the ~moduLaRe~ user interface:
