Synthesizer for creating unusual sounds and soulful distortions
The idea is to first generate a relatively simple waveform, expand its complexity by the multiplier and then attenuate individual frequencies by the filter bank. A downstream P52 filter, master envelope and chorus give the sound a final polish. A manual is included in the download.
The heart of the inFiltrator are two musically highly effective (but surprisingly seldom used) modules:
a wave multiplier and a filter bank. Both are extended implementations of the Doepfer modules A-137 and A-128, respectively.
Usage of Dual Knobs:
Click-Draw in the center region to modify the inner knob (main parameter). Left and right regions are for the outer knob (modulation amount). Double-click in either region resets the knob and value to its default.
Right-click the little squares below the knob to invoke MIDI Learn. The left square is for the inner knob, the right one for the outer.
(Feature Request to NI: Please enable MIDI control of Mouse Areas, analog to XY-Fields!)
- Andy Wilmer for inspiring discussions. (He's a genuine modular freak!)
- Daniel Scholz, whose Reaktor implementation of the A-128 was the basis for my filter bank.
- Anonymous for the dual knobs which I further adapted to my needs. (His/her original ensemble "ontotheham" is not signed, unfortunately)
- Don Dailey for his terrific snaps (check out the separate bank included in the ensemble!).
THANKS for your feedback!!!
Re-designed the LFO section. Now it works as in Shark 3. With the "Sync" button checked, the Speed knob snaps to integers and inverse integers of the host tempo.
Fixed some bugs that sabotaged polyphonic mode.
For thos who own Kore 2: I have created koresounds for the inFiltrator, including Controller pages for all elements. They can be downloaded at http://www.kim-bostroem.de/Stuff/inFiltrator_koresounds.zip
