Tristan Williams releases BRB PixelPops
Tristan Williams has released BRB PixelPops, a freeware keyboard controlled random tone monosynth.
It has many features which can only be accessed using notes and velocity. It is suitable for computer glitches, percussive pops and experimental performances.
BRB PixelPops features
- 2 oscillators (X and Y) which are multiplied (to form Z).
- Each new note-on results in a random pitch and random waveform for X and Y, random pan and volume for X, Y and Z.
- Retrigger and portamento are controlled by velocity.
- When played without retrigger PixelPops behaves almost like a ‘normal’ monosynth.
BRB PixelPops is available for Windows PC.
