6 voice synth with looping envelopes
Minor edit making the random function mono instead of poly. Thanks for spotting Paule!
Version 1.1 - Added two LFOS, one for each oscillator. Each with their own XY controller (controlling speed and amount) modulating the envelope loop speed. Even more weirdness!
Welcome to my second Reaktor synth, the LSKlang!
In a nutshell, it’s a basic 6 voice 2 oscillator synth with fm, a ladder filter and some effects.
Where the real fun starts is that both oscillators have their own looping AD envelope. which because it’s a 6 voice synth loops the envelope of every voice and becomes some kind of crude sequencer!
Play some notes, turn on loop, change the speed of the loop and hit the random cat for some klangerous chaos! Add some frozen background texture from the grain delay and you’re off :)
The Tub effect is some kind of attempt at a reverb. I looked at a Boscomac reverb for some inspiration, but kinda just winged it halfway through and the result is very klangy :p
It’s a very playable synth as well, very velocity sensitive. This is also the case when looping the envelope so it’s easy to add accents in your ‘sequence’.
The included snapshots are quite pedestrian. It’s good at plucky, bassy, almost modal and metallic sounds but it shines when using the looping envelopes and using it as sample fodder. I’ve included two sound examples to illustrate both :) It’s all straight from the synth!
Again, the UI is very simple & clean and every knob/slider etc. has a tooltip as well.
Hope you enjoy!
