Services for Hire

Hello There, Welcome to my website!

I provide services for hire in several different fields!

If you are interested in working with ChipperSwitch Studios, contact me with this link.

Audio Plugin Prototyping

Are you interested in developing your own VST/AU Plugin with a professional developer?

I can help you save time and money by creating a fully-functional prototype within Ableton Live.

Together we can refine your concept and shape the sound your looking for.

All prototypes come with complete documentation about their construction and how the signature sound is dialed in.

Plugin developers love recieveing working protoypes before they start hardcoding because it prevents costly and time consuming re-coding.

Turn around time for plugin prototypes is two to three weeks depenind on complexity.

Commodore Crunch

Add a little bit of tasteful grit with this savory effect.

Unlike many other redux based effects, Commodore Crunch can effect a very limited part of your signal.

Use the pre-filters to focus the effect.

The core mechanic behind this effect is an envlope generator that reactivly downsamples the signal.

Signal gates also help reduce noise by muting low volume signal before it hits the downsampler.

Crunch it up!:

Elouf Breaks

This effect rack uses the Beat Repeat effect to create minimalist soundscapes

There are indepedent beat repeat effects on each frequency band, Low, Medium, and High.

Each beat repeat is then followed by its own ping-pong delay.

The "Feedback", "Refresh Rate", and "Chunk Size" knobs effect the the size of the echoed bits and how closely the echos follow the currently playing audio.

The "Offset" knobs are used to seperate and de-sync each channel's echos.

This rack was inspired by the music of Seth Elouf

Version 2.1 released 4/9/17

Examples

Unaffected Audio:

Sparse Effect:

Dense Effect:

Degenerate

This roudy effect creates delays that get more and more murky.

There are two independent delays, one left and one right, for a mono delay, match the right and left delay time knobs.

The "Time or Sync" knob to switchs between a timed delay and tempo synced delay.

This effect daisy chains delays and low pass auto filters.

The "Echo Count" knob determines the number of active delays, thus how many times the signal is echoed.

Turning up the "Feedback" knob makes the delays in the chain repeat more than once. This effect gets loud quick, so dial in the feedback slowly please!

Turning the brightness knob opens the auto filters a bit more so you get repeats with a tad more high end.

The dry/wet knob starts with a clean un-effected signal, then mixes in the delay, then mixes out the original signal.

This rack evolved into something different, but it was inspired by the
Catalinbread Adineko “Oil Can Delay” guitar pedal. Check out this handy review of it by the Happy Time Pedal Show!

CPU Usage: 8/10 (Less when echo count is turned down)

Digital Editing Examples

Here are some examples of my work touching up scanned artwork so that they are ready for printing.

I pay close attention to the color balance of the image so that brightening of whites and darkening of blacks does not change the hue of the image.
