Capricorn 2008

I haven't built a synthesizer for a long time so I thought it might be fun to build one on the way of out of 2008 only to find out how rusty I am at it. For whatever it's worth here it is. I have done by best to optimize everything but it is still a bit heavy on the CPU when the FX's are active.

The synthesizer is basically a 2 OSC subtractive, or in other words nothing special. Each osc has a selection of waveforms and 1 sub osc. There is a standard 12/24dB multimode filter and the amp can be configured to work with envelope 2 or a pre-configured envelope that I have called 'Gate'. The FX section has a saturation unit, delay (a modified version of stereo tap delay from the R5 library), and reverb (a slightly modified version of micro-space from the R5 library).

Panel A & B offer various ways of controlling aspects of the synthesizer. Panel A is the main set of control for designing a sound. Panel B is a short cut page with limited controls; however it has four assignable controls that you can program. I did not program the assignable controls as such assignments are dependant on the equipment that one uses.

I was only able to do 27 snapshots for the synthesizer, yet it is fairly straight forward bread & butter type stuff so it is easy to program a snapshot if the sound of the synth is appealing to you.

Happy New Year and I hope the synth works!
