I like artistic graff a bundle,
will maybe try some wildstyle sometime on a UI
I had a quick play with the redlight one-
will have another hack at it.
atm it shifts upward without discontinuity I think,
but the downward sounds really low-res

I have worked on the Shifter Redlight-
I faded the grains with more complexity and got rid of the discontinuities.
So here's another flavour of realtime pitch shifting->

I'd like it if u got back to me with how this one goes now Enroe 8D

Hello Nix, I just loaded and checked your last "shifter"-upload.
But - unfortunately - you did load up the wrong shifter. What
I found was this:
°
shifter redlight 01.gif

It seems to be your "one-octave-shifter" ground pedal, but not
your famous grey "3-band-shifter". Or did I overlook something? :?

And - if I am allowed to say that - even your last true "3 band-
shifter", the "Shiftah", had these mysterious brown knobs:

These brown knobs destroy the greyish dressy look your shifter
had before IMO. :ud: Also their status is not discernible at first glance.

Maybe the shifter just needs some more love, because it was
already one of the best? :?:

Heya Enroe-
don't worry mate!
The Shifter Redlight is a different algo- I sorta wrote it with primitives.
It's a different plugin, that now works a lot better.
It doesn't just shift one octave-
I think it shifts +-4 octaves including semi and cents,
in a 3 note chord, ie. 3 lines,
and parallel and serial.
I was wondering if you would like to try my different grain shifter.
It has more volume modulation though.

The UI problem in pastel Shiftah- my, what's done that I wonder.
The knobs will be fixed for sure.
What host are u using?

Hang on -I'll test like 5 hosts.
yeah-let me know which host it is mate

I always need people to tell me what's wrong-
I'm a tiny dev and don't do much testing,
so please let me know if things are awry

--ps- I just tested it and it's not having the weird brown ones here in 4 hosts

Well then. But this one needs more explanation, because
nobody will know what these sliders do.

I check them in Cubase 9.5 and Reaper 5.95 (if time). :D

I think in 5 min it's not hard to get the controls,
they are logical enough I hope
I'd like to keep the UI just the same,
I can make a drawing with labels though- will do that for peeps first use

What was the host that made the knobs brown,sorry?
I can attack the problem, if I can reproduce it

That was in Reaper 5.95.

Seems to be mysterious - though it's not that important.
This one changed from Shiftah 1 to --> Shiftah 3 ... so something
must have happened ... :?:

hmm-maybe the plug id is the same and that did something untoward
here's how the x64 Shiftah file from the 1st of October looks in Reaper here->

Reaper v5.961/x64 here.
Shiftah from Oct 1st...all good, no brown knobs.
Just shows Shiftah, not Shiftah 1 or 2 or 3.

enroe, maybe you need to make sure Reaper is only seeing one Shiftah dll?

Good to hear. I'll do some research on my side. :)

thanks for the report enroe,
I can sorta raise a ticket and ask the FS dev about it
The knob is a simple vector one

cheers for testing for us goldglob!
edit-yeah, multiple plugs may have something to do with it

njoy the tech all

ShifterRedlight:

Only the top band seems to be working here.
Turning a band on/off by clicking it's little red light is fiddly..have to aim exactly with mouse..hit and miss.
Adjusting cents is fiddly...easily jumps from say 3 to 5 cents..hard to home in...needs a keyboard modifier I think.
Choosing which band to edit with the vertical slider...have to click then drag a long way...needs a shorter drag..had me fooled at first, couldn't seem to move that slider.
I can see that the square button top right changes the latency thing... when activated REAPER shows 1000/1024 spls which I understand is 1000 samples bumped up to next block size multiple, but when in the low latency setting REAPER is showing 0/256 (256 is my block size)....if zero latency should show 0/0 and if say 64 latency (whatever) should show 64/256....yes?
I guess the MIDI button is for cc control? But when I choose my MIDI keyboard (the one already hooked up to REAPER) I get a message telling me it's already in use and can't be selected...but I'm not sure about how these sort of things are supposed to work.

yo thanks-
I'm on this again then.
I'll see what I can do.

agreed the LED is really hard to click

I have set latency compensation at 1000 and 3000,
I think that it approximates what the plug does.

with the keyboard knobs- it needs an option for host,
if it doesn't have it
