Annual Subscription for Kaleidoscope

Patchpool (Simon Stockhausen) has launched an annual subscription service for 2CAudio's Kaleidoscope resonator FX/synthesizer.

Simon says:

In summer 2014 Andrew Souter from 2CAudio asked me, if I wanted to be on the Beta-team for his new invention Kaleidoscope. At first I was bewildered by this program, then fascinated and I started delving deep into the possibilities of Kaleidoscope.

After it's release I spent many, many sleepless nights with Kaleidoscope creating images with ArtMatic and Photoshop or modifying images of instruments, human beings, plants and objects, extracting waveforms from samples, extracting tuning files from all sorts of acoustic sounds with Melodyne and designing hundreds of presets with these ingredients. Dozens of experimental videos were created since, testing these ingredients and experimenting with real-time sound manipulation in Kaleidoscope. I also provide tutorial videos available on my youtube channel (and in the video-tab on the right).

This subscription includes original images, waveforms and tuning files. Many presets borrow tuning files from either the expansion Architecture Vol. 1 released by 2CAudio or the free Scala tuning file-library which is available as shareware, as I see no point re-coding tuning files which have already been created and are ready to use. My presets sometimes are variations on a theme, so within a subscription set you will find several variations of a combination of images and tuning files or waveforms, exploring some of the infinite possibilities Kaleidoscope has to offer. Of course you can also ignore the presets and just use the images, waveforms and tuning files to create your own presets. How a preset sounds is totally pendent on the input signal, so I will also supply some samples from time to time with audio content which works particularly well with Kaleidoscope (sharp transients, noisy components, lot's of harmonics and dynamics). Some presets are saved using the internal noise generator of Kaleidoscope to excite the resonators, this can easily be changed turning down the noise volume slider in the program.

Every 6-8 weeks I send out a new set to all subscribers, all new subscribers can download the entire subscription content in one compressed archive. The subscription price is fixed and will increase moderately when more content has been added. If a subscriber wants to renew his/her subscription after one year, she/he gets a 20% discount on the current subscription price.

All audio tracks made with Kaleidoscope subscription presets are here.

All KS video experiments and tutorials by Simon Stockhausen can be found in {See video at top of page}.

Current subscription price: € 89 EUR.
