OK, so I know the rules say one post per user, but the last one went off on a complete tangent so I’m starting a new thread for all of these in the same place. Ideally, I’d like to delete the other posts but that doesn’t seem to be possible.
Here’s the complete series so far:
Part 1: Talk Box Guitar
Part 2: Random Step Phaser
Part 3: Ring Modulation
Part 4: Oscillator Sync
Part 5: Auto Swell, Generative Synth Parts and Shimmer Reverb
Part 6: Tuned Resonators and Filters (New! As of yesterday anyway)
Part 7 will be a guitar synth, and after that who knows? I may even try to make some actual music again. If there are any particular effects you’d like me to try and create, please let me know. Any suggestions are welcome (apart from ‘please stop making these awful videos’)
One idea I’ve played around with and not yet finished is combining as many of these as my computer can handle into one monstrous patch, then ‘morphing’ between different effects/settings using Stoermelder Transit.
Cheers Ady, not exactly but I did an attempt at creating a hardware pedal called the Microcosm. I didn’t include it in this series but it was kind of similar. I used Nysthi’s clockable delay which has a really long delay time (up to 10 seconds I think) and that can do a Frippertronics thing. Usually I just use loopers instead, but if you turn the feedback right up it’s looping but gradually fades out. Is that what you were after?
There’s a link to the patch on that video too but it’s a tricky one to share because I used loads of VST plugins.
Well this is the nearest I have got to Frippertronics, using AI Macro and Resonator and Pathset’s Icetray repeating varying lengths up to 10secs of recording capability. Only just realised this by chance tried Nysthi Clockable delay and that just zombied out the patch it went too high in the red and died. Quite happy with this, got some nice brass trumpet sounds out of Macro repeating over other sounds.
I keep forgetting to post these, so please subscribe to the channel if you’re interested in the idea of modular guitar effects. I’m up to number eight now, and this one demonstrates the crazy concept of polyphonic effects. I keep threatening to make a tutorial video, and this would certainly be easier to explain with a voiceover. Perhaps Santa will get me a decent microphone, if I’ve been good enough. Wait no, I’ve been a bit of a bastard. Never mind!
Fantastic, thanks! The Fishman could be interesting. I’ve got a Boss SY-1 but haven’t used it for a while as I’m not that keen on the synth sounds. Post your work if you can, would be great to hear some VCV/MIDI guitar stuff.
I should really change my colour scheme! I find grey cables less distracting, but the Submarine utility was set to blue when I started patching, and I couldn’t be bothered going back and changing them all to be the same
I’m also using one of the Brainworx amp sim plugins in Host, I think this one was Buxom Betty.
This one isn’t guitar based, (although some guitar samples sere recycled in Pigments) but it does show how some of the effects I’ve found can be used with synth sounds too. I used #8 - polyphonic VCV Phaser on one of the pads:
