61 - Synthesis

This bank includes synthesis algorithms from the H8000 - from FM to audio input driven synths and analog style oscillators!

#6109 Arabian Collangette

An oscillator tone is the Root of a sequence tuned to the Arabian ‘Collangettes’scale. Filter, modfilter, panning delay and verb process the oscillator.

…More about the arabian scale?…

It has 25 steps from G to G 1200cents above. Very microtonal.

Here it is: G:0c. G #:48c. G # #:90c. G # # #:149c. A:204c. A #:253c. A # #:294c. A # # #:355c. B:408c. B #:456c. C:498c. C #:547c. C # #:588c. C # # #:694c. D:702c. D #:751 D # #:792c. D # # #:852c. E:906c. E #:953c. F:996c. F #:1045c. F # #:1110c. F # # #:1147c. G:1200c.

#6111 External Hats

Inputs 1&2 trigger synthetic ‘hats’. Use short, sharp trigger sounds. 2 LFOs and/or envelope of sound can mod phasers. The envelope of sound itself can mod the LFOs! Each ‘hat’ is output though a LP & HP filter that is modulated by the envelope of the sound. Tweak away! 2 in, 2 completely different out. Stereo in, stereo out.

#6112 FM TimbreFactory

A four operator FM timbre generator suitable for sampling. At fund of 55Hz (A1), loops should be (1/4 samp rate) number of samples. Each operator can be modulated by the other three operators and itself (if you’re clever, you can create any parallel or series combination you like). Each operator is sent to the Mixer. The outputs of the Mixer are filtered. Nothing in, quad out.

As in, Hammer and Beck. Synth will follow your input guitar line… sorta. If you don’t understand it, you’re too young. Summed in, stereo out.

#6115 Rise Or Fall Osc

A series of oscillators perpetually rises or falls. Gives you that uplifting or sinking feeling. Because of the mechanisms involved, the program distorts upon loading (sorry!). Nothing in, mono out.

#6116 Samp/Hold FM Lab

A sample and hold ‘circuit’ is triggered by the lfo. The output from the s/h modulates an oscillator dubbed ‘modulator’ according to ‘S/H mod’. The output from the ‘modulator’ Osc then modulates a ‘carrier’ Osc according to ‘fm mod’. The output from the ‘Carrier’ Osc is panned between two speakers by the S/H ‘circuit’. Finally, the output from the panner is filtered. The setup just described is repeated for both the front and rear speakers. The LFO can be triggered to sync with music. Mono in, quad out.

Input on DSP 1 triggers the LFO to jump to a specific point in its waveform. ‘Thresh’ adjusts the threshold for triggering. One cycle is equal to the ‘Note’ value for the given ‘BPM’. Great for syncing FX to a song. Interesting results if the note value for your trigger does not coincide with the ‘Note’ parameter. The time you spend figuring out this triggered LFO will be well worth it. Look for other ‘TrigLFO’ FX for the same mechanism.
