Unbearable Devices brings you the first of a series of audio tools to create a new breed of music: Multitemporal Music. Gone is the unique, boring BPM of old, we bring you the joy of using more than one BPM at the same time. Asynchronous streams of sound flowing in the same instance. Check www.unbearablerecordings.co.uk for some examples. The Guidmachine is Step Sequencer combined with a sample player. The Step sequencer has 4 X 16 steps while the sample player can load 4 samples simultanuously. Nothing new so far, but what makes the GUIdMachine special are a few unique features. First of all you can easily shift any of the sequences up and down by any number of steps and you can decide the length of each raw. But even this is not news. What�s special about it is that you can randomize this modifications and so the pattern will never be constant if you want. The velocities can be randomized too so the accents will also change during time and make the loops more interesting. But the most unique feature is that the 4 sequences can play at 4 different BPMs! The Sample Player section is a fairly straight forward 4 voices sample player with a good envelope section and the possiblitly to change the pitch , the length, the start point all on the fly. It also features a 4 tap delay section, a master Vst insert and the possiblity to record audio files of what you are doing.
