Scroll Up Hold Back

A tiny (digital) mechanism inspired by the functionality of a dial. It is a continuous movement that retrieves the information and holds it for different lengths of time. A way to rearrange sound without cutting and montage.

Created with TidalCycles. I mainly used samples with a length of 1.5 to 3 seconds during its configuration.

let scrolla = range 2 24 $ slow 96 $ sine
    scrollo = range 24 2 $ slow 96 $ sine
    pusha = range 0.025 0.2 $ slow 16 $ sine
    pusho = range 0.025 0.2 $ slow 48 $ sine

d1 $ stack
   [   fast 2
     $ (|+ end pusha)
     $ sound "default"
     # begin (range 0 0.975 $ slow scrolla $ saw)
     # end (range 0.025 1 $ slow scrolla $ saw)
     ,
       fast 2
     $ (24.46875 ~>)
     $ (|+ end pusho)
     $ sound "default"
     # begin (range 0 0.975 $ slow scrollo $ saw)
     # end (range 0.025 1 $ slow scrollo $ saw)
