Reaktor 5 or lower

DESCRIPTION

This is a simple Math macro for Reaktor 5.6.
It gives the value of the Gold Number. It's very usefull to add/multiply this value to an oscillator, or any kind of generators in Reaktor. This gives a more 'natural' feeling into your patch.
NOTE : anyone can put into this macro an 'in' port and a math method (add, multiply, substract, etc.) to use this value...
Have fun !

It's exactly what DONALD PHILIPS is talking about : just modulating oscillators one to the other, with this ratio. It gives an 'inharmonic' sound that is just weird and interesting to listen. it is not a value, just a ratio. And I'm sorry if I seemed 'offensed'. I tried to explain myself on this module. In fact, I made it also as a Core Cell, just to experiment with this section of reaktor.

I am all about Golden Mean and Fibonacci numbers in everything! So big thanks ;-)

chowning was probably using the golden ratio as FM (IE, modulating an oscillator with another oscillator at 1.61803399 the frequency of the first, or something like that. I'm bad at DSP).

hey man, again, no offense! i'm not saying that there is no need for this macro, i'm just saying that adding or multiplying it by an oscillator is probably not the best way to use it! it'll just make it louder, if that sounds 'better' that's fine too!

So... Sorry for the main title, but I have to name it GOLDEN MEAN...

By the way, on Wikipedia's John Chowning article : "One of Chowning's most famous pieces is called Stria (1977). It was commissioned by IRCAM for the Institute's first major concert series called Perspectives of the 20th Century. His composition was noted for its inharmonic sounds due to his famous FM algorithm and his use of the Golden Mean (1.618...) in music."

Aw Com'on men, Don't be so harsh with it. I use it on some of my patches and give a good feel. For example : 5 oscillators (like Sine) with this value on each Pitch entry, and you make a synth reacting with the concept of Stria (you can listen it on the Ambiant Works from AFX, for instance). I thought (and I'm a bit naive, maybe) it would be useful here. Is anyone haven't seen graphics made with this value ? Try it in the same way...

Ah, the sorcerers stone - lead (plumbum) to gold. It's a hard way Stephane.

no offense but i'm not sure you want to add or multiply an oscillator to this - you're just going to create clipping.
