Optimus Prime 4 is the first of the ‘Transformers’ series, a group of ensembles I created over the last 4 months. They share a common GUI and modulation system, a method I used to rapidly create new projects with extensive modulation capabilities without starting from scratch each time.
Like previous versions of Optimus Prime, version 4 is very similar to Tim Exile’s ‘The Finger’ and Twisted Tools ‘Buffeater’ in that it is a multi-FX processor where effects can be added and removed from the processing chain dynamically thru the use of MIDI note signals. Optimus Prime is mainly intended for glitch effects that can be turned on and off easily.
Here’s a sound sample of one of the presets, I am just mashing buttons on my keyboard so it’s not too musical.
I have included a .pdf manual that describes the basics of using Optimus Prime. Please post any bug reports, questions, or comments in the comments and I will do my best to help. I also would welcome some user-submitted snapshots for this, so please feel free to send some my way.
Comments are truly appreciated, as I spent a lot of time on this. Thanks.
