About Tricky Traps By Sonic Faction
Tricky Traps is a collection of 16 creative contraptions spanning sequencers, instruments, Audio and MIDI effects that are tons of fun to play. Chain devices together to trigger unexpected reactions and happy accidents – and experience a new level of customized grid control on Push and Launchpad Pro/Mk2.
• 4PLAY - A melodic Step Sequencer with four simultaneous play heads, each with its own speed and direction
• ISO-ARP - Create pseudo-random progressions with a scale and key. Great for generating melodic soundscapes that fluctuate over time
• RADAR - A rhythmic circular sequencer where each lane can run at its own speed or direction. Assign each of the four lanes to any drum rack
• RIPKORD - An intelligent chord generator combined with an arpeggiator/sequencer.
• RIPPLE - Generate sound ripples that echo on a grid. Set up notes and repeaters to create self oscillating ripple patterns
• GRID NINJA - Map eight macros to any parameter in Live and trigger momentary effects. Play your audio effects like an instrument using the Push grid or MIDI keyboard
• SEQ-MOD - Assign this 64 step sequencer to any parameter in Live.Use the Push grid to draw in your sequence and the slider to manipulate the modulation range
• XYZED - Inpired by modular X-Y sequencers, this unorthodox device can be assigned to any parameter in Live and then fed different values and direction
• 808 BASS - 808 inspired Kicks, Toms, Booms and Subs
• AMBN - Mellow, ambient tones made for contemplative generative sequences
• GLITCH THING - Glitchy, twitchy, robotic and psychotic sound generator
• MAD FM - Thick bass and lead tones with extreme FM modulation and sound mangling
• DIRTY TALK - Gritty talking vocal synth that can morph between vowels
• SYNDRUM - Analog drum sounds recorded from a massive modular synth rack
• TRANCEBOT - Deep, trancey leads sounds for epic arpeggios
• TROPIX - Pure tropical sounds of Marimbas, Steel Drums and other melodic Percussion
