Kammerl Beat-Repeat Effect for Clouds

Post by Richard Devine » Mon Mar 27, 2017 12:00 pm

My friend Julius created a alternative firmware for the Mutable Instruments’ Clouds which enables real-time slicing / beat-repeat features ported from the Kammerl Kaske VST plugin suite

Download it free from here:

Thanks for sharing. Is this going into your live setup or are you still using parasites?

Sounds great!
Thanks for posting and kammerl for making it possible.
Can't wait to try it out

Pre-amble: This is not a criticism, just a question.

Am I correct in thinking that this alt-firmware isn't open-source? I couldn't see any mention of source code availability, and I couldn't spot any source code for it on the author's GitHub account: https://github.com/jkammerl

The MIT license under which Olivier Gillet releases the source code for his digital modules doesn't require alternative firmware such as this, which is derived from Olivier's code, to be released under the same or another open-source license, and thus there is no imperative to make the source code for this alt firmware available.

The only requirement stipulated by the MIT license is to include a copy of the copyright notice and the license permission notice with every copy of any software derived from the original code.

If the derived code is also released under the same or another open-source license, then the copyright and permission notices are usually just displayed in the source code. But in the case of a proprietary, non-open-source, compiled binary-only distribution, as appears to be the case with this alt firmware, then the author must find some other way of meeting the MIT license requirements - usually by displaying the notices on the web page used to distribute or promote the software. It may be that that requirement may not have been met - but if so, that is easily remedied by just adding the required notices to the web page for the firmware.

Sorry to be pedantic, but strict compliance with open-source licensing requirements matters, or at least it does to those involved in writing open-source code.

has anyone installed it?

i have issues when i turn up the WARM DISTORTION option.
clouds starts to freeze. cant change anything until i turn down the WARM DISTORTION blend.

do i need to reinstall?

adding...if i sintall with a slightly higher vol [2 green, 1 ever so slightly yellow LED], the WARM DISTORTION werks, but SLICE PROBABILITY, turned up, causes mad clipping now.

any direction on the best settings to get this sounding good would be great.
of get lots of clipping. [gain is only half way LEDs are only 2 green].

im using an A4 to calibrate. what should the range on for the pitch variation be like? i goes from mega deep to almost buzzing when its high. the voltage readout from the A4 is 1v to 3v when im calibrating

thanks

I highly doubt that the volume you use to play in the FW can make it function differently- it's either going to load, or it's not.

Timmy@:
Thanks for pointing this out, Timmy. I added a license notice with Olivier Gillet' MIT license next to the download links.

TommyRaddcliff@:
I'm not sure why you experience distortion. Did you try disabling the feedback parameter? I don't think it is a calibration issue. Anyways, I'll try to add some more parameter bound checks to the distortion in the next update.

It may be that that requirement may not have been met - but if so, that is easily remedied by just adding the required notices to the web page for the firmware.
I am not sure if the webpage was modified to include the license after you notified about it or if it was there before - but the "Installation" section includes a link to http://www.kammerl.de/audio/clouds/NOTICE.txt so that appears to be in order now.
Warm thank you to everyone for the past 10 years. I'm not active here anymore for personal reasons, so for those I've had the pleasure of dealing with please send an e-mail instead of PM if you wish to get in touch.

Yes. Always recalibrate when switching firmware on Clouds.
