other things on my youtube or soundcloud are (most of them) made with VCV Rack, but here I don’t post everything, because something is only a try…However, it is always my music…so…feel free to shoot
The “2018” song is made with old version 0.6, and the part made with VCV Rack is the one on the background.
The “2019” song is made 100% with VCV Rack 1.0.
It has been a challenge to me, I have looked for perfection.
This is the first time someone with good headphones or audio monitors is listening to them.
I use VCV Rack on Linux, I still don’t have an audio interface, just a pair of 55ohm headphones.
I love sawtooth and sine waves…and reverbs…of course
I have also prepared a mapped version of the matrix using the Artura BeatStep Pro, but I cannot test it properly because my laptop goes 100% cpu. I have to wait to move to a new apartment (hope by the end of the month) to play with it on my tower linux pc…
warning: there is no mercy for the fans of your mac book pros
btw, the small/step pads are the “destinations”, the big ones are the “sources” (top row 1-8 / bottom row 9-16)
to simulate the insert of a pin on the matrix, just hold one source and tap one destination, or vice versa
only 16 encoders are mapped, if you have another controller just map it by yourself…I think I will duplicate the “project” on the bsp and change just the CC number for the encoders, so switching from project2 to project3 will give me every knob mapped
I just tried your Synthi patch, I’m having a lot of fun with it! I’m finding some nice vowely sounds I hadn’t found before I really like the layout too, it’s easy to find where everything is. In my own recreations I chose to put all the stuff that’s under the hood off to the side to free up the interface, your knob layout could also easily accomodate this.
What surprised me was the way you managed to get the triangle-to-saw shape down with such a simple solution! I have tried so many different methods and only got it to morph correctly in one direction, the other one gets close but is unstable, I have to implement this in my version too!
I would like to suggest some minor improvements:
-Oscillator 1 shape results in doubling the frequency on extremes, I found a quite neat way to get the correct shape without changing the frequency, using a synced up Bidoo TiARE with control over the X axis of the phase distortion curve.
-For Osc 2 and 3 you can simply ditch the EvenVCOs since you already have a squarewave with PWM at your disposal from the Bogaudio VCO, which makes the waveforms line up just like it’s described in the manual. This way you also fix the synchronization issue both these oscillators have, and the Bogaudio VCO can easily be switched to be an LFO
-The filter volume was a bit low, so I turned the Drive knob up, although I would suggest routing the Filter Level control to the Drive CV input on Lateralus, so you can really drive the signal into distortion
-The reverb was clipping so I turned the input volume down to 50%
All in all I think it turned out really well, I don’t know how close our recreations sound to the original of course, I would love to be able to play the real thing someday,
Until then I will continue to play with this one a bit more, I will let you know what else I find! I could send you my revised version if you like?
thank You @Deev , I’m glad you liked it, I think you’ve made a fantastic job!
unfortunately I did not managed to morph the wave with the “vertical” side of the trianlgle “really vertical”, I remember Nick Batt in a SonicState video talking about the importance of the “vertical” side but…who knows how the original one sounds like?
thank you for all of your suggestions!
of course you can modify “my” patch…it’s an honor, I will knock the door for the modified one as soon as I move to the new apartment and turn on my tower pc again…so I will work back on this patch
