Orbit - Time and Events

To install the plugin bundle on your system, simply copy the orbit.lv2 folder out of the platform folder of the downloaded package into your LV2 path.

Unstable (nightly) release



Currently the following plugins are contained in this plugin bundle:


Creates MIDI events based on LV2 time position events (bars and beats), e.g. to drive a drum machine. Bars and beats can be disabled/enabled separately.


Record/Playback of arbitrary LV2 atoms to/from disk. Record all incoming atom messages with sample accuracy and play them back later from disk. Stored atom event data is part of the plugin state and thus preserved across instantiations.


Synthesizes click tracks based on LV2 time position events (bars and beats). Bars and beats can be disabled/enabled separately.


Loops arbitrary LV2 atom events on a ping-pong buffer. E.g. loops MIDI, OSC or anything else that can be packed into LV2 atoms with sample accuracy. Needs to be driven by LV2 time position events.


Creates LV2 time position events from scratch to drive other plugins.


Quantizes incoming events to whole beats.


Subdivide or multiply incoming time signals by whole fractions, e.g. to speed up time x2, x3, ... or slow it down to x1/2, x1/3, ...

Beta Testers

After a high interest at Maker Faire Rome, we are now running a beta-testing campaign to collect more comprehensive feedback of first-hand experiences of our final Chimaera prototype design from interested individuals. Get in contact with us. Now.
