Multi-band Dynamic Gating

I have a new compositional obsession at the moment, dynamic multi-band gating. It pretty much looks like this...

 With a rich timbre sound source input the source is split up into different frequency bands that are then gated using different patterns. Add on some FX to the chain for extra sauce and away we go. Making the patterns have different periods makes for some interesting cyclic interactions. I am working on a method to modulate the gate patterns in realtime as a way of playing live and improvising compositions.

Here is a session I did this weekend with a prototype.
