Effect Delay based

DESCRIPTION

BASED ON SPACE MASTER, USES GOLDEN RATIO(PHI) FOR MAX DIFFUSION. DELAY TIMES ARE MODULATED AROUND PRIME NUMBER OF SAMPLES. DIFFUSER USES NESTED DIFFUSER DELAYS FOR MAX RATE OF ECHO DENSITY INCREASE. TIME DOMAIN IS DENSE, FREQUENCY DOMAIN IS SMOOTH. A TEST MACRO IS INCLUDED FOR ANALYSIS OF THE IMPULSE RESPONSE. MOST OF THE CREDIT GOES TO MARTIN ZWARTJES.

Though really dense, I don´t like it much - seems a bit alpha to me (sorry). The scale and range of values of some knobs is not reasonably set ("SIZE" gets WAY too big and is hard to turn due to 10000 steps, low settings of "Diffusion" kill output with nested allpasses active etc.). The test signal generator does not make that much sense in a reverb as well...BTW: the golden ratio is only used when "NR" is set to 0.618 ((1/GR)^1). ;-) But the prime numbers are working really well to prevent ringing, nice job!

Phi, Pi and the prime numbers are among the few unique building blocks of the universe, and they are in every bit of nature. Employing these numbers/dimensions to music/frequency renders the music immediately "masterplanly" and healthy! Just like retuning scales to Pure, which can be done using the Dynamic Pure Tuning script in Kontakt 2. Curious to see how those two go together...

Best reverb I've ever used. Seriously. Thick, lush, rich, none of those really artificial sounding ringz and whatnot from most reverb units. A kool idea and concept that produces usalbe and musical results. Rock on.

I'm with Donovan. This ensemble is unique. I tested it processing some boring generic drum beats, just to see what it could do, and the results were excellent - really full of character. Thank you very much, and please develop your ideas further.

I'm very curious what other downloaders think of this ensemble..It's surpising to me that no one has commented on it by now..I personally got a kick out of seeing the Golden Ratio employed here..This ensemble is a dream machine for dark ambient.
