DESCRIPTION

Evolving Vector Environment
EVE-01

Six voice vector phase shaping synthesizer with limited components but very complex modulation options, due to this is somewhat CPU intensive.

Supports input from both standard MIDI and MPE controllers (MPE input received on channels 2 - 7, vertical position on MIDI CC 74).

Per Voice: 2 Oscillators, LFO, Noise Generator, Envelope Generator, Sample & Hold, Low Pass / High Pass Resonant Filter, and Stereo Positioning

Oscillators based on ADSR Tutorial:

----------------------------

Version 0.1.2 2018-09-18
- Smoothed out certain values sent to Stereo Position Modulation
- MPE AD envelope changed to logarithmic from linear
- Increased LFO frequency range
- Panel B now shows only scopes
- Added attenuator to scale scope view
- 12 new presets
- New preset bank 'Sound Generators'
(no pitch input, most can be modified by mod wheel position)

Version 0.1.3 2019-02-24
- Change to LFO frequency modulation behaviour
- Added key sync to oscillators
- Ability to offset phase on oscillators and LFO when key sync is enabled
- Select oscillator view now by clicking corresponding scope
- 6 new presets
- New preset bank for ‘Drones’

Version 0.1.4 2019-08-06
- Parameters better implemented for ‘Morph/Random’ function between presets
- Changed parameter ID numbers and names for easier use with automation
- 10 new presets

@oh ok the sine oscillator drives the function with a single-ramp phasor. he's driving it with a two-ramp phasor, so he needs the function to send that "custom" shape to it.

@Sergio Avila if you're referring to the 'Stereo Position' it is more for stereo widening than panning. It works by varying the amplitudes of the voices through different delay lines.

@Julian Hellman Does this happen with various presets? If it is happening on all of them then I haven't been able to recreate that issue. The only patch out of the 'Standard' bank that continuously makes sound is 'Coarse Sand' but all the others return to silence when sending them notes at full velocity for me. If it is with your own settings and there is any modulation on the oscillators' amplitudes then that may be what is causing it or if the noise generator is routed to the output.

I love your synth! But I have a problem: When I play loadly and stop then, the synth keeps playing silently, even with 0 amp. Do you know this problem?

@Alex Plant There's a changelog attached with the ensemble file but I guess I could have updated the description here to include it as well. Anyway here are the changes in 0.1.3: - Change to LFO frequency modulation behaviour (the modulation amount display now corresponds linearly with the fader as it previously did not) - Added key sync to oscillators - Ability to offset phase on oscillators and LFO when key sync is enabled - Select oscillator view now by clicking corresponding scope - Some new presets and a bank for the 'drone' presets Also if you have any recommendations on how you think it can be further refined, as you previously mentioned, I'm open to suggestions. Keep in mind though I also very much like the weird noisiness! @kevin halloran The envelope generator should function in a pretty standard way. It is a bit different in that the sustain level can vary after it has been triggered, this is in order to work by being triggered by aftertouch when using an MPE controller and still have a consistent decay/release time. If you select the 'ENV' on the Modulation Routing section and turn up the Scope Frequency a little (fader on right side) then you can see the envelope shape being generated when it is triggered. Hope this can help to better understand how the envelope generator functions.

Hi, I see there has been an update. Can we get a changelog?

great stuff! some excellent formant sounds and then some. one small detail : I haven't quite been able to figure out the envelope when varying release times (the sustain or not sustain block works as expected, but I can't get my head around the way the resulting AD and ASR envelopes work).

I love how well this works with MPE and love all the visual feedback and info tips! A joy to play. Thank you for this!

I'm liking this. Could be refined a bit but I do like that it gets weird and noisy.

@david bick Ya, the 'Polyphonic Expression' button is for switching between normal midi controllers and mpe controllers. When it is switched on each voice is on its own separate midi channel.

I'm trying to figure out the polyphonic expression control, is this just something that would work with mpe?

@Jonathan Canupp Thank you! I’d be interested to hear how you use it. The zippering happens when changing the position quickly as it fades between multiple amplitudes and delays at different times. Slow modulation or jumping to different positions seems to work fine. Still an aspect that I’m experimenting with so hopefully I can find a way to sort it out.

Very interesting! I was surprised seeing all is done in primary and rather simple but it is very flexible and sounds original. The routing and modulation options are very powerful indeed!

Very impressive ensemble here! Unique and rather slick design. More importantly, quality sounds. I was pleasantly surprised, numerous times, throughout my first bit of exploration. No doubt, I'll be using this in some future production(s). Thank you for sharing! (Only criticism would be the occasional zippering when tweaking a couple of the 'Position' parameters)
