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 now independat to matthias karplus circuit.
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.
(added a extended range selector below feedback knob)
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.
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.
not everything is fixed (scale correction shifting etc wasnt touched yet).
-polyphonic equinox deluxe chorus (thanks to colin for the hint, pretty CPU friendly!)
-polyphonic barberpole flanger (yes it hits your CPU hard)
-monophonic barberpole phaser (just FX)
-polyphonic filter section with several filter to chose from (SVF Paul will hit your CPU)
-constant noise injection (primary noise osc -> upper left knob called "Ampl")
-contsant noise injection inside the feedback circuit (Core different seed per voice)
-bit reduction inside the feedback circuit (it raises the volume a lot... things get power/intense)
-flaggeolettorium / Exciter are now a shared stacked macro to switch between
-lots of bugfixes
-more stuff went into the main core
-cleaned up snaps
-exicter can now be feeded by the original (external) pitch info OR by the internal modified pitch
-some more stuff i forgot to mention.
- wrote a lot of tooltips
i have used Boscomacs wonderful shimmer verb lately, which is not included.
