DESCRIPTION

this my first synth on R4,and I don't know what to think about it.

V0.3 is same as 0.1 I remove the design of 0.2

an osc is filtered an read an audio table, little amp of the osc read the center of the table, big amp read the whole table.

all env and tables can modulate all signals,there is room for 40 wave forms.
in a view there are scopes to see what's happening,
many switch to save CPU, done under 4.0.4;(sorry for 4.1 users)
you can draw your env and waveform,I added 2 instruments: math ,to designed wave form,and sample fitter,to capture sample in the audio table.
many, filters,those from R4 plus 2 factory, one based on the allpass filter,in the other one you can chain some modules from R4,like filters,clipper,mirror.
I did some snapshot to see the potential of the beast,there are in bank 1&2,but banks are not full,also included a little tutorial to help you.some sound needs short notes,some long one.very evolutive sounds.
the reverb is taken from R3,as you get a wide variety of sound,better you put FX you like.sensitive keyboard needed.don't hesitate to draw
to do your sound it's there for.

hope you gonna like it, but even if you don't please rate it even 0 it's not a problem,and put comment so that I'll know what progress I have to do.
thanks.

Maybe an A/B panel would get things Tight, it's really huge on my 15" powerbook. ;-)

thank you walter, I set the design to non visible, sorry for your mental health,I thaugth it would be inspiring;-D, hope the rate will get back to 8 or even more;-)

walter stähli great work and thanks for sharing but pliis, pliis rethink your design. i get psycho dizzy with druggy goa crazyness. its a tool and presented best as such. i know how to remove the bitmaps, its just for your benefit but thats just me.

ok,may be it's not just colors, what do you find hard to handle? (I'll change colors again,but with solid colors I find it ugly,so if someone have ideas, I'll be very pleased.:-)

Colors dont really help...Maybe some solid colors would be better. Nice one by the way ;-)

hmm maybe someone in the forums has a clue ... maybe you could post a thread there?

yes,I let it run, surf elsewhere then look at it and there was no blue line anymore(using safari),then check on user lib,nothing.my connection is 4000 Mb.

are you sure it stops? probably it´ll just take a while, depending on your connection.

wow!!! I was very upset nobody will post no comment,and I vave comment from program child and Ernest! I didn't even dream of it!!thank you,thank you,thank you!! (the truth I've been dancing of joy for many minutes when I read you:-)) yes it is too big,this is due to the fact I had no ideas what will come out.it is also due to the way I build instrument, in fact I uselly play a loop,and then build instrument on it,so my instrument is my score in a way, and as this one was for other people, like reaktor session users, I thaught,it would be better to make easy change in the synth, without building into.but you are right program child most of people are first listening to a sound and then play music.I'll think about it next I build an instrument. on my powerbook 667 I have what you see on the picture,I see everything but the two filters factory and the waveform and i thaught it was ok as once the wave form is choosen you don't need to see it again, and the filter factorys are on a kind of page two,and ones the param are set you don't need to have to look at it too much.but it seems that I was wrong, I also thaught of putting the factorys in A view, but i steel need the scopes sometimes, the circulation filter is so powerfull, but a bit hard for me to predict its reaction at first. in my first version there were no switch,but I had a big CPU charge,that's why I used switch.I'm not sure that router set to off modules that are not needed.and the use of switch gave me the idea of routing every signal. And the strange thing is that the paths are much more important than the waveform of the main shaper. the interface is a bit hard to handle because as i wanted to see every thing,I put things where I could.i have add a picture with many colors... :) to help user find its way. but maybe I go to far in "arty". but in order not to be lost in the synth, when I start a sound I set filter to bypass and filter circulation to without,when I have something interresting I then set filter circulation to with,then I choose the filter. I'll have to think of the FM modulation,but I was more in adding an external signal input.(I find this idea looking at socrates, wich is great btw). and again thanks you for your advices I will have them in mind for my next instrument.

I agree with program child. I look forward to seeing your future creations :) One idea you may like to experiment with: instead of switches, using router modules with list boxes to control them, as also, you could modulate the modulation sources. Also then you can put the list boxes in a different instrument for easier panel view. or you could use the B panel to make the layout easier. In the audio path, it may be fun to use FM modulation on shaper table position? Just some ideas. ALl the best, Ernest

definately a cool synth. I really like creations which do not go the usual ways. But it is too big. I cannot overlook all these controls and the interface is hard to handle. I think it is better to make most things happen beneath the surface. The user does not need all the options the synth has.But one thing isd for sure: cool that you joined. There´s much future in this one
