Audiomodern & StrangeLines present STREAKULATOR, created by developer Ernesto Cecco D’Ortona, STREAKULATOR is a midi-modulated audio effect suitable for modern producers to use in the daily workflow, but it’s suitable for many uses, mostly sound design. Its main job is to create crazy sounds with a human touch in no time: possibilities are endless.
STREAKULATOR is literally a swiss army knife for Ableton Live: you can do sidechain, sound design, waveshaping, filtering, wobble and growl basses, synth sounds from any source, heavy metallic effects, robostep sounds, perfectly synced gating, dramatically fast sound shifting with presets automation and it goes as far as your imagination can.
You can use STREAKULATOR with any kind of sound: organic sounds, acoustic instruments, drum loops, synth phrases and vocals too. You’ll be surprised at any time about its incredible sound quality and flexibility in producing so different results.
HOW IT WORKS
STREAKULATOR is comprised of two main pieces: the “Midi to Streakulator” and Streakulator itself.
STREAKULATOR is a midi-triggered audio effect, therefore it needs midi impulses to work, so here comes into play the Midi to Streakulator: put it in a new midi track, put some notes in its piano roll and your midi sequence will trigger filters, envelopes and effects in Streakulator. Note that the letter in the “MIDI TO” parameter should be the same in STREAKULATOR’s “MIDI FROM”.
