Another excellent app arrives from Mr Kerns, maker of midiSTEPs, midiLFOs and more. Along comes midiFILTr-PG Probability Gate MIDI Effect. Here’s all you need to know …
midiFILTr-PG is a Probability Gate MIDI effect designed for Audiobus 3 but also usable with CoreMIDI. midiFILTr-PG listens to MIDI input and based on random chance mutes some of the incoming notes to make a busy, repetitive stream of notes a little more interesting and sparser. It has four modes:
Gate Mode – One set percentage to be muted for all notes. Also includes Gate On Repeats (when a note passes through unmuted, also pass through X more notes after) and Gate Off Repeats (when a note does not pass through the gate, also mute the next X notes) to make things a little more interesting.
Note Mode – Each note in the scale (C, C#, D etc) has its own percentage chance to mute incoming notes.
Sequencer Mode – Every eight notes has a different percentage chance to be muted. Can also change the sequence length to be less than eight.
Thru Mode – Nothing is muted, normally not used but there if you need it.
If midiFILTr-PG is inserted as an Audiobus 3 MIDI effect it should be setup and work automatically. If you wish to use it without Audiobus you can toggle the CoreMIDI input and output and use it that way.
