Video Tutorial – Strobe Module

A little tutorial covering the new '(at) Strobe' module, which can be found in the online modules library. In this tutorial I explain how to use the Stobe module and sync it up to LFO's, MIDI clocks, and run strobe from sound triggers. Plus some other stuff. This is not a GENER8 module, but will respond to LFO messages from GENER8's. So if you are using GENER8, you won't need the the other modules shown in this tutorial. An explanation on this can be found here.

TIMECODE Protocols

I have now finalised the Timecode protocol for the GENER8 modules. If you are developing your own module(s) and wish to access this data, here’s a brief explanation of how it works. I have tried to ‘future-proof’ the Timecode, giving it a full spectrum of possible data types. And although I have made changes to it with this last release of GENER8 (0.52), I promise not to meddle with it further (at least not too much). The Timecode data is output from the GENER8 Launchpad module, and is ava...

Making Modules Compatible with GENER8

With the inclusion of GENER8 in your projects, the standard form of Layer Contextual modules becomes a little less relevant, as we start to change video at the GENER8 Clip level. I have written GENER8 with this in mind, and it is a fairly simple process to produce an update of your own Layer Contextual modules which include a sensitivity to the GENER8 Clip changes produced by The GENER8 Launchpad module. All that is required is a small script which to be included in the Periodical Script, ...

Tutorial: Syncing GENER8 to an external MIDI clock

One of the things I get asked fairly regularly about is how to sync Gener8 to other audio applications (Ableton, Traktor, Logic, Reason, etc.) via MIDI clock. So I thought I’d put this simple tutorial together to explain the basics. I don’t intend to get into the nitty gritty of producing MIDI clock signals from each and every DAW out there (there’s plenty of info on the web for that, or in your favourite software’s manual, which if you haven’t already read it cover to cover I suggest you do ...
