Stereo synthesizer with 16 oscillators
This is a synth containing 16 oscillators per voice, arranged in two groups of 8 each. The oscillators in each group can be detuned and spread across the stereo field. This began life as an expansion of the Sixteen string machine. The goal was to create a thick stereo sound without requiring a chorus device.
That’s about it. Other than that, this is a very simple instrument. I just wanted something that had a thick stereo sound.
Like the Nord Lead series, the first group of oscillators can be FM-modulated by the second group, and the second group can be synchronized to the first group. Six waveforms are available: sawtooth, sine, triangle, pulse, formant, and tuned noise. While making this, I learned that the core formant oscillator eats CPU cycles for breakfast.
I want to thank Jonathan Style for creating all of the graphics and a nice collection of snaps. Also, don't miss the collection of alternate skins he provided.
V2: This update fixes a bug in the MIDI modulation system. To fix it yourself without uploading this version, open the MIDI macro and turn off the Mono attribute of the Mod Bus 1, Mod Bus 2, and Mod Bus 3 macros.
