Reaktor 5 or lower


a little exercise in modeling and a study of model parameters and material properties on perceived tonal quality

it also demonstrates the tonal difference between synths like Steampipe and Prism and true physcial models with physically informed parameters and physical interaction forces

this study is part of a larger project that aims to cross borders between these different concepts

includes a simplified magnetic pickup and a reverb

this is a very accurate reproduction. thanks for sharing it. my only recommendation is to add a limiter to the signal path near the output stage so that it doesn't clip (and the user need not manually adjust output volume or add a limiter themselves).

I think there is a wiring error in the Partials macro in the three connections from the B macro to the tone rod quality switch. The 'ideal' parameters are connected to the 'pure' parameters. A nice demo of the modal banks!
