New envelope - of sorts

TModEnvReso.jpg

Published as pre-release. 2022.1.26.0]

Made a new envelope module of sorts.

I had been experimenting before with a State Variable Filter (SVF) set to low frequencies as a method of getting some ressonance in the processed signal. Worked that out to use a time setting instead of a frequency setting for the filter and allowing for very long times (ultra low frequencies … like once per hour) and for pretty short times like 500┬Ás (2kHz - in the audio range).

There are some details and an example patch (including a short mp3 recording from it) in the more section.

New distortion module

TModDistort.jpg

Published as pre-release. 2022.1.10.0]

Made a new Distort module. It takes it’s input value and raises it to a settable power (alpha) which can be modulated.

And a third one …

TModQuantizer3.jpg

Published as pre-release. 2021.11.13.0

Made yet another quantizer, it quantizes it’s input value to various levels each with it’s own output.

Fixed filter bank

TModFixedBank.jpg

Published as pre-release. 2021.10.24.1

Made a new fixed filter bank module with 38 bands, starting at 35Hz each next band has a 17% higher central frequency for it’s bandpass filter till the last sits at about 12kHz..

A new module and some extra modulations

TModOscPercCS.jpg

Added a couple of modulations to the percussion osc, for click, decay and fine (cents) control.

Also made a new module, a prototype for a Daphne Oram type of Oramics module. I plan to make some variations on this one.

Two new modules

TModCopy.jpg

Made two new modules, a Copy/shuffle modle and a percussion oscillator.

The Copy module copies it’s inputs to it’s outputs - but the coupling can be randomized in some way.

The percussion oscillator is loosly modelled after the pch2csd interpretation of the Clavia G2 OscPerc modue (type 195 there) - it ended up a bit different than the original escpecially for the punch mode. Oh, and it got a bit of an odd name somehow … OscTrigCs, will fix that later on.

Upped the current pre-release

TModLog2.jpg

The current pre-release was upped to officially include the changes in the three posts before … the RandSigs quadratic mode, the bug fix in the PDosc module and the inclusion of the Log2 module.

The Log2 module is the inverse (with some restrictions for low input values) of the Power2 module.

Published as pre-release. 2021.7.5.0

A new power2 module

TModPower2.jpg

Made a new power2 module, it calculates 0.5 * Power( 2.0, input). This is meant to make higher values less likely, more quietness …

Published as pre-release. 2021.7.4.0

Also made the inverse, a Log2 module, which will be in the current pre-release.

New envelope module type

TModEnvARMod.jpg

Made a new EnvARMod envelope module, it has better time and shape control than the existing EnvAR module. It also has outputs for the A, H and R phases (as well as as for End Of Cycle (EOC). It also has not the bug mentioned in the previous item.

Published as pre-release. 2021.7.3.0

Some small changes

There still was an issue with the ScaleQuantizer. When first loaded from the module selector it would by default need an enforce operation, fixed that.

Changed the connector popups to additionally show the signal type .

A new data recorder module

TModDataRecorder.jpg
Made a data recording module, along the lines of the Recorder module, but it takes it’s input from the selected voice only (so no voice mixing) and it writes out it’s data as a Comma Separated Values (CSV) file.

A proper oscilloscope

TModScope.jpg
Made an oscilloscope module, a somewhat more usual one than the XYScope module.

The module listens to the selected voice only.

The input signal is amplified or attenuated by the level control.

The time base can be set to various values, the values reflect the time for the full screen width (so not the usual time per division). For long time base values the update frequency is low. The shortest time span that can be set is one point per sample, in this position the relation between signal rate and size on screen depends on the sample rate.

Added a tropical mixer

TModTropicalMixer.jpg

Added a Tropical Mixer module.

What it does is mathematically simple … it computes the minima and maxima of some values. The values are made from an input value summed with a constant value and a modulation input.
