Instrument Synthesizer


This is the first ensemble I've ever uploaded...
The package contains a readme file that should guide your first steps; the whole instrument is popup commented, so everything should be clear.
Hope you enjoy it :)


In this version:

I think all the bugs are fixed.
Tested on macintosh as well (thanks John) and worked!

Try to load under R5.51

Does crash R5.1, but runs with R4.1.3 - both on my G5 2GHz dual, running OS X 10.4.5. FWIW, CPU is below 20%. This thing is nicely laid out, and with seemingly endless possibilities quite capable. Thanks a bunch for this great ensemble!!

Works well on my G4, the ergonomics are a bit tedious however...

It looks interesting Roberto but I'm also having the same crash problems mentioned. I'm on a 1.25 ghz mac G4.

:// Don't worry, it's not a virus, but if it crashes a G5 it's surely a bug. As soon as I can I'll try to sort it out!

very scary, it crashed my G5...I hope there isn't a virus or something. Let us know whatsup!

New version still bombs me out - crash log gives no clues sample rate is normal and voices are only 3
Roberto Noris 10 years ago
The samples are in the package. About the "over": I use it with an XP 2000+ @ 44K and 3 voices; with the starting snapshot the cpu stays under 25%... Sure it needs some cpu power but using just one voice and keeping an eye on the grain values should make it usable.

It looks like an interesting piece,but cpu was "over" even at 22k. 6 samples could not be found when loading.

Crashed my Mac on opening.

Crashes my PC while loading the samples:(

actually, if i reduce the sample rate and number of voices, whilst the power button is off, i am ok when i turn this back on. it would be nice if you could upload a "lite edition" version of this (no delay, no resonator, maybe no filter) just to play with the grain cloud bit.

yes! Finally an ensembe which works fine on a PC and crashes on Mac! Bad, bad Mac! ;-) - Artur (frustrated with many ensembes, which didn't work on PC, but did on Mac)
Roberto Noris 10 years ago
Also try lowering the voices...
Greg Killmaster 10 years ago
works now for me. Thanks!. but I had to quickly set the sample rate down to 29000 or it would crash after displaying "over" in the cpu load box... haven't had a chance to play with it but I love the scale microtuning feature...

Can anybody with both mac and PC tell me why this happens? Sorry, I haven't got any experience with macintosh...

crashes my G3 Powerbook, Mac OS 9.2
Roberto Noris 10 years ago
I'm sorry I cannot test it under macintosh... :/ BTW, I've updated a new versione with some bugs fixed.
Greg Killmaster 10 years ago
crashes my g4 10.3.4 everytime I try and load it...

Strange. It's now got a '10'. There's a bug in this voting system.
Cliff Douse 10 years ago
Not sure why someone just gave this a '1' vote. It's actually quite interesting.
john stainton 10 years ago
I'm afraid it bombed reaktor under 10.2.8 on my Mac - looks interesting though . . . :-(
