A Tribute to Jon Gomm
dirty content in a clean surrounding
the audio example was recorded in reaktor standalone just driving one instane of car+ with 8 voices. no additional fx. i have only normalised the recording to -3db and converted into mp3.
stuff like this will just flow out of your speakers, lean back and have a nice sunday.
Main Ensemble/starting base (thanks to Matthias Schertler):
thanks to vadim @NI for taking the time to teach us some ZDF/Filter stuff.
it dropped me out in seconds after opening the "VA Filter". but my brain has recognized the feedback loop...
some days later i started to experiment with karplus strong setups (matthias' upload). as i saw his delay/feedbackloop and especial the positioning of delay and filters, i saw the VA Filter loop again :P
so i had to put a delay into a zero delay feedback circuit. yes even if it seem to make no sense...
i still don`t have any idea of this ZDF stuff nor (digital) filter design.
starting base was the VA Filter from the library. i have deleted not needed stuff and started experimenting in a unknown field.
maybe everything is just wrong :)
that karplus ZDF is driven in parallel (->X-Fade knob on string 1) to matthias karplus circuit.
so mostly all String 1 knobs are acting on the ZDF karplus too. only that feedback knob is replaced by the decay knob in the ZDF section since i wanted a wider range to experiment.
Matthias uses a feedback amount range from .99 to .999 while the ZDF can go from 0.7 to 1.1
this allows to generate short plucks, as well as endless feedbacks going extreme.
don`t worry too much, the saturator will keep it in range.
have fun exploring karplus
thanks to chet singer in general (picked your plug position idea/macro from geetar), which works similar but somehow sounds different in ZDF.
if you want to compare primary and core ZDF only use string 1.
the X-Fade knob will crossfade between
0 = primary
1 = core zdf
new in vers test1h:
-SatL has now a knob
-some new snaps
the combination of high pass cutoff + HP amount + SatL can act like damping, but without (or way less) pitch down effect while sounding more open than the usual low pass solution (alone) in karplus strong circuits.
applying them all slightly instead of going extreme with one of them (the low pass usually) seem to keep the pitch more stable overall.
thanks to antonio blanca for the awesome nod-e firing this setup. just perfect.
-we lost some things
-scale correction transpose does not work yet
- ignore any block A/B modulations. them are only there to remeber me removing them
- read tooltips. especial the macro header of the grown flageolettorium
- give feedback
thanks and enjoy a "small" update.
next step will be resetting the pitch "buffers" on snap change / panik button.
atm you can reset everything by switching the audio engine on/off
THANKS TO COLUGO_ for the scale pro!
added the missing pitch reset. button + automatic on snapshot.
