Ostrich o6400 Sampler
High quality transposed sample playback
2.0 Updated to 5.15 file format, hopefully this will fix the issue for Mac users.
2.1 Includes "Safe Mode" version to fix Mac and certain Windows Vista users with issues running the original. Now includes fixed glide mode.
This is a project I started in 2005, and more or less finished in 2006. I've been one of those "I code all of my own plugins" artists, and I don't typically share my creations, however, I've had a change of heart lately. This started as an emulation of various EMU technologies detailed in the EMU patents, and David Rossum's papers at the IEEE. It eventually evolved into something different, but I will say it sounds remarkably hardware like(as well it should).
High quality 13pt Sinc intepolation
513pt Sinc(!!!) offline render mode
basic envelope configuration
Uses almost no CPU when not playing notes
*I elected not to include a suite of effects(i.e. add your own), if there is sufficient demand for future releases, I'll consider including some of mine.
Known limitations and bugs:
*Can only load one sample at a time(no multisamples). Reaktor has no support for object oriented programming, it would make it a nightmare to implement and use. The main purpose is to playback long samples stretched across the entire keyboard range.
*I believe this bug is in Reaktor and not my programming(feel free to prove me wrong), but when changing audiorate switch positions on the panel, you will get distortion and hung notes. The fix is to turn the main ensemble power button on and off after changing the switch.
*This ensemble was designed to work at 88.2/96khz(higher is OK). AFAIK, it will work at 44.1, but the sound quality will be somewhat diminished.
*Offline rendering mode cannot be used in real-time(if you don't believe me, try it).
*I've made some knobs invisible, because they were for my use only, and I didn't feel that these were really important parameters for end-users.
*I made the glide/portamento knobs invisible, because it seems that I broke it at some point recently without realizing it. It was a very good original glide module I made myself, if there is sufficient interest, I will consider fixing it.
Go get it!!!!!!!!!!!
