Postby Fortune; Sat May 05, 2012 7:50 pm HGFortune: Ghost Machine Suite out now - more patches

HGFortune Ghost Machine


a little demo video:

Ghost Machine is a multipart algorithmic composing machine featuring a Pad part with Long Wave Sequencing, a HiSq part with a 16 step sequencer and customizable note pattern, a bass part with a 16 step sequencer and customizable note pattern, and a drum part with 4 instruments parts each with a 16 step sequencer. All these 16 step sequencers are pattern driven which are changing due to an internal algorithm to create music. In AutoPlay mode you can let the machine do all the composing work for you, or you can transpose manually at realtime to change the current rootnote. The spirit of this machine is more about flowing pattern changes and arranging a track or performance at realtime.

Ghost Machine TS (tabbed screen variant)

GhostMachine Pro Suite at introductionary offer til June., 21st only 49Euro instead of 79Euro = over 37%off
In fact you buy 1 and get 4:
- Ghost Machine Pro (normal one screen)
- Ghost Machine TS Pro (variant with tabbed screen)
- Wave Slot Player for adding OneShots and athmospheric loops

So you get both variants the normal Pro (one screen) and TS Pro (tabbed screen). You might put the normal Pro on your desktop PC while the TS Pro variant is running on your notebook at no extra prize!

older entry:
As May 6th is on a sunday this year it is a good day for a surprise in reconnecting to the past some way. The circle of the spiral crosses the point where it all began: HGFortune's very 1st public VSTi 'Wheel of Fortune' or WoF! In reminiscense to this after about 9 years here is a worthy successor GhostMachine WoF Edition 2012 which is an offspring of the bigger project GhostMachine.

GhostMachine WoF Edition 2012 ties some links to it's predecessor in having a Bass & HiSq part, a scale based algorithmic composing system, a pattern based sequencer with 2 x 8 steps instead of 4 and with the note pattern being editable. And what is most important it does have that very special vivid groovy feel back ;-)
And, yes, as of May 6th GhostMachine WoF Edition 2012 is free!
Download of GM WoF is now part of the GM Demo Suites above.

Now, what is the contest about?
As the note patterns are editable you can win in creating 2 x 24 different (= other than the default ones) note pattern. Of course simple note pattern like 1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1 or 1,8,1,8,1,8,1,8 do not qualify for the contest. So patterns have to be some kind of melodic sequences. Also it must not necessarily be 2 x 24 note pattern in one patch as you might use the same pattern for Bass and HiSq part.
For more details on pattern please refer to the manual of GhostMachine WoF Edition 2012 Appendix 3 esp. what is written about strategies with pattern.
It is not necessary to create completely new patches in terms of sound parameters as the contest is only about note pattern. Use one or more patches of your choice for your pattern

Even better there are two chances to win: as we'll have a winner from half the way to end of the contest and a final winner. The contest starts today and ends on May 20th 12 o'clock GMT and half way is May 13th 12 o'clock GMT. Thus all submissions up to May 13th 12 o'clock GMT (12:00) are eligable for the halftime winner, and all submissions up to May 20th 12 o'clock GMT (12:00) for the final winner.

Prices to be won:
Halfway and final winner - Ghost Machine Pro plus one of these VSTi: The Tiger or Serenity (winners choice)
Second winner - Ghost Machine Pro
Third winner - The Tiger or Serenity (winners choice)
also there will be some surprise consolation prices!

Contest is closed now.
There has been one submission :-(
Thus this one is the unrivaled winner! Congrats go to Bob Bobwood!

Have fun

Will the no-tabbed GUI fit in a laptop screen?
Eventually something intelligent will appear written here. Watch this space.

Congrats on this one. Can't wait.

On my Toshiba A100 15.4" Diagonal Widescreen XGA display* with max. screen resolution 1280x800 pixels : NO, missing half of bottom row knobs, even by removing the taskbar in Plogue Bidule but YES in Ableton Live 8.

Fantastic looking synth HG - Thanks!
Great to see something so rhythmic being added to your impressive collection of wonderful morphing textural type sounding synths.

Cheers for the freebie, and also for the contest. I love any musical contest.
But i have a couple of doubts.

One patch per person?
What e-mail to send the patch?

I already finished mine. I will send to you in a couple of hours.

Have a good day :)
