K-Devices has released TATAT, a VST3 and Audio Unit plugin which they describe as a MIDI streams generator. Here's the story in their own words...
TATAT is a (unstable) MIDI notes generator plugin: it's a creative tool to assist and help producers and musicians to generate new ideas, becoming a great starting point for writing melodies and beats, and a perfect controller for virtual instruments and hardware gears alike.
TATAT has been designed for 3 main purposes: to create always-changing sequences, to quickly sketch and store music ideas, to add unexpected events to fixed patterns.
Notes generation in TATAT is based on a multi-chance concept: user sets up for multiple rhythms, multiple notes, intervals, and other parameters value. Using dedicated multisliders the user can then adjust the chance a note and/or a time resolution are adopted on next trigger, creating complex streams of events. The generated notes are then processed by several operators: Velocity, Less, Delay, and Length.
TATAT produces then a stream of notes based on settings and probabilities: we call these settings "mood".
Once user got the right mood, he can do different actions:
- to enjoy the always changing stream of notes
- to enable "thru" to add the generative stream of notes on the top of a fixed MIDI clip/file or live MIDI input
- to inject stability by using LIV/MEM horizontal slider, to mix between the live generated stream and a frozen pattern
- to use the export icon (the triangle) to drag on a timeline, clip slots or folders, different MIDI files, generated by TATAT according to its mood
TATAT gives great results both with melodic/harmonic content, and percussive parts and beats!
TATAT is a brand new plugin, but it already exists in our catalogue as a Max For Live device. Since its release, TATAT got a lot of love from our users, and we received multiple requests asking for opening up its use to other DAWs; so we are really thrilled for it to finally become available to everyone!
