Notes: Timetosser is the first of its kind. An innovative hybrid between an audio effect and an electronic musical instrument, enabling you to playfully reorder any audio signal in real-time.… Read more
The novelty of Timetosser lies in the way it is used: the user is not simply enabling an effect, but has to actively and skillfully play the instrument in order to yield good results. By combining Timetosser with a classic DJ set-up, much value can be added to any stage act. Furthermore, Timetosser can be hooked up to any device, giving you much artistic freedom. From drum machines to modular synthesizers, from a single track on your mixer (e.g. guitar, vocals, drums .. ) to the master output. By adding Timetosser, you instantly gain a unique live effect by adding variety to your tracks and loops.
How does it work?
Standalone - Use the tap-tempo key to tap in sync with the music. From this, Timetosser learns the length of 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 notes, as well as their triplets.
MIDI IN - Another option is to sync to midi-clock. By connecting the supplied mini-jack to DIN-5 adapter cable to the sync input, Timetosser is able to synchronise to an incoming midi-clock signal.
Analog Gate - The sync input also supports analog gate voltages. To use analog gate sync, just connect a standard mono mini-jack cable to the sync input directly.
MIDI OUT - Having both a MIDI-input and output means these will be usable from within your DAW software when Timetosser is connected to your computer. But the true advantage comes when Timetosser is used in standalone-mode. Since Timetosser detects the tempo of the incoming audio, the MIDI-output can be used to send out that tempo. This means you can synchronise your MIDI-gear and have them play in time with anything you feed into Timetosser. We're very excited about the possibilities this brings: blur the lines between deejaying and live performing by having synths and drum machines play alongside your tracks!
By pressing any of the keys of the upper row, the player basically selects a delay that is a multiple of the selected note length. By playing patterns using the upper keys , we can keep changing the delay time in a way that we can repeat a note, or change the order of the music entirely.
