Skrylar's box of patches


(Skrylar) #1

A couple of experiments merged together, and became this thing.

  • Using a VCF to attenuate sound instead of a VCA (i think Sound on Sound talked about this once?)
  • Using an LFO for a vibrato, but that got boring so it controls a tremolo now
  • And a crossfader introduces the tremolo with a second envelope so it stays clear of the attack (learned this one trying to make flutes in zynaddsub once)
  • Trying to stack a second oscillator pitches below the first didn’t sound so great, but offsetting the pulse width and stacking the same tone that way sounded neat :+1:

how the VCF can attenuate?
it wipe all the spectrum ?
that is why I can ear a kind of auto wah wah?
is pretty cleaver

Exactly :slight_smile:

0005 Resonating Detuned Saws.vcv (9.5 KB)

  • The de-tuner goes before the oscillator, not after it :wink:
  • Piping audio in to the Resonator seems to excite the strings like they were plucked, but if you exceed the built-in 6x polyphony it doesn’t stunt one of the strings and re-pluck it, it just changes the pitch of an already-moving string?
  • Resonating a mini supersaw (it’s only 3, not 7) sounds neat.
  • I guess the trick with dampen is not to set it so the resonator is “reverb-y.” I suppose it should only be trusted to do a very slight effect to signals and then entrust a reverb to carry the rest of the sound.

I don’t think I did it right :smile:

wow you have quoute me from another topic, this is strange) anyway I think your brightness knob didn’t get enough voltage to be bright)

Showing off the suite of turing machine parts.

Trying to immitate Sound on Sound’s discussion about guitar noises from saw waves and distortion filters. While I didn’t succeed in the slightest at making a guitar it still sounds pretty neat.

There are some minor crackles and pops. Putting the distortion in seems to have gone beyond what I can do with ALSA on the bigger rig (although, running it over JACK doesn’t fizzle and pop. No idea.)

I’m also still not too sure how to create rhythms on impromptu sequencers. I think you’re meant to do it by setting the clock divider and altering the gates for each note, which is a little burdensome. Maybe that’s an idea for a separate post?
