Lily Turntable is a Lily implementation of the aforementioned QT Turntable of old. It’s main function in life is to give you fine pitch control over audio file playback… which can be any kind of time that quicktime understands. Short audio loops seem to work ok. Long audio clips are great. It’s *possible* to use this to DJ with as a standin for a turntable. You’ll still need a mixer and another audio source, but that’s how QTTurntable came into existence, so maybe you will use it for that, or maybe you will use it for something weirder.
And I realize how “0.2 beta” this looks at this time. My intention is to dive more into Lily and make this patch do more…
short and sweet
* download the lily app
* drag the file into firefox
* restart firefox once it’s done installing
* look for the new app in the Tools -> menu.
Longer, but still super easy
- Download the .XPI file to your desktop or where ever you normally would. Just make sure you can locate the file once it’s downloaded.
- Make sure Firefox is running. If not, launch it.
- Make sure Firefox has a browser window open. If not, open a new one.
- Find the .XPI file you downloaded on your computer.
- Drag the .XPI file into the open Firefox browser window.
- There will be an unusual prompt asking if it’s OK to install the file you dragged into the browser window. Hit yes and it will do it’s job.
- Once the file is installed, it will tell you that you need to restart Firefox. Go ahead and hit the “restart” button.
- Now that Firefox is restarted, look for the new application in the Tools-> menu.
- Done! Enjoy!
- there’s another slider below what I’m showing you in this screenshot. It doesn’t do anything yet. I’m working on it.
- the loop button doesn’t reset when you load a new file. I think I know how to fix that.
- the pitch sliders work. they’re compounding on themselves, so for instance if you have the +-10 slider at the top, it’s set to be -10% of the pitch speed. Then you can add an additional -2% by setting the other slider to the top. I think the +-2 pitch slider should reset to the center if you change the main pitch speed at all. I’m working on that too.
