Triple Perc

Granular Texture Sampler

audio processing software and effect


Triple-Perc is an audio processing effect that explores a number of granular sampling and synthesis techniques discussed in Curtis Rhode's Microsound. Fundamental to the approach of this algorithm, was finding a balance between chance and user defined states.

The system exists as a standolone application for MacOS and Windows systems, as well as a Max for Live Device and Patch. Users are able to record or drag sound into the plug-in which is then sampled by a number of parametrically controlled voices.

The sample below is a recording made with Triple-Perc using the infamous "The Empire" vocal drop which was a signature component of DJ Empire mixtapes througout the mid to late 2000s.
