Gotharman Little deFormer 2

   0 reviews  -  428 views
    Gotharman's Little deFormer combines a granular effects processor with special effects like TimeStretcher, Step-Granulator and PitchShaper and more usual effects like Reverb, delay, distortion, compressor, filters and bit manipulation, with some special parameters, with a 100/200 minutes sampler, a synth and a step sequencer. A MIDI Note Randomizer is also included.

    Both the samplings and external gear, connected to it's 2 audio input can be effected. A complete list of effects can be found in the specs section below. Watch and hear Little deFormer in action, in the video's section. I have planned to use the Little deFormer as a platform for engineering new effects, so additional effects will be added now and then, which will be available as free downloads on this site. These updates will be available as MIDI sysex files in".syx" format, and you will need a program like Midi-Ox to download these to Little deFormer.

    The 4-note polyphonic sampler makes it possible to record your own samplings directly from the 2 audio inputs, or re-sample it's audio output. Samplings are stored in FLASH RAM for instant recall, without any loading times. Up to 200 minutes/999 samplings can be kept. Start and end points can be changed in realtime and modulated, and it also has functions like AutoChop, for a conveniant and easy way to cut up long samplings. Each sampling has it's own Phaze effect and filter with LPF, LFP2, BPF, BPF8, HPF, ADD, BEF, BASS, LO-FI and SHAPER modes, and a filter mix parameter. It is also possible to adjust the filter response, to create filter types, that have never been heard before. The Little deFormer comes loaded with samplings of other Gotharman gear. Instead of samplings, it is also possible to use Little deFormers build-in oscillators for sound generation. They can morph from sinewave to triangle to sawtooth to squarewave to noise. Pulsewidth modulation is possible on all waveforms.

    The Little deFormer comes with an expansion port, for connecting any of the available expansion boxes. Notice, that only one expansion box can be connected at a time.

    New on the Little deFormer 2:

    LD1 had a combined Effects Freeze and Sequencer start/stop button. On LD2 this has been split up to 2 separate buttons. It is possible to expand the memory of LD2, so it will get 200 minutes of sampling time, 1024 presets and 1024 songs. The extra sample memory is located in its own physical bank, and it is possible to copy samples between the two banks, and erase all samplings in one bank at a time. All shortcuts are written on the front panel. Compact, but yet it has a big display for easier navigation and editing.
