"Magic" Setup

From AB forum (@FlightManual) September 2019

Sector is a top 3 app for me.

Because I set up a template with all the warps and stuff mapped out, I could then just import loops and they sounded awesome.

  1. A secret between you and me: If you have 32 sectors, map 8 with a 25% probability to go to 1, 9 , 17 and 25. Map 16, 24, and 32 the same way. Map 4 with a 10% probability to go to 13, 21 and 29, leaving a 70% chance to continue to the next value, which is 5. Do the same for 12, 20, and 28, leaving 70% probability to continue through. Transitions will sound magically musical.
  2. Because midi is mappable to triggers, all 32 triggers are available on my Akai to trigger manually.
  3. If you map your 32 sectors, you can also trigger them in a step sequencer.
  4. Watch your loops… If they arrive at the next sector too early, slow it down, if there is a gap, speed it up: Then, reimport the sample with the new tempo. Should clean up. Also, you can half or double the tempo speed and reimport the sample too.

I always lock tempo and pitch, but that is me.

It's just math.

Jungle is massive.
