It's a little bit in the vein of my song "Then Girls Collided Severly With Each Other.smu" which is included with musagi. They're similar but opposite at the same time. You tried to do as much as possible with complex instruments and sparse patterns, while I tried it with the simplest instrument and a very complex pattern
08 is still good, but I guess you have some work left to do with transitions. The very last segment (and the other one like it which comes before the loop) sounds a bit out of place and like it's missing something. Everything else within the loop flows really well though.
ehehe, alone the name is longer than all patterns and sounds of 09 combined, HAHA! ;D I have to check it out! I might have already, but I somehow think I would've remembered the name! OOOHHH, funny! Just checked it out! Yeah, it's almost literally the exact opposite! Oddly enough, your pattern looks even more stuffed than it sounds, which is sorta hillarious, haha. Cool!
Yup, 08 is still somewhat of a skeleton. I think by the time I'd be done with it, I'd give it a deserving name, too.
Ah, there was additional craziness hidden behind the short note triggers in that song. One of the instruments has an elaborate arpeggio sequence that I decided to make something of. Adding the pads/strings unintentionally made it sound a lot like The Knife's Marble House.
neat! ...straight into the trove! The arpeggio was an afterthought that just juiced it up a little. The sound is actually nice enough flat, but appearantly it was nicely inspiring for you, too! ...LOVE IT!
Here's without arpeggios, which is kinda nice, too...just for fun...and with the "Flute" a little nicer...(noise was too strong) taron-test10b.smu
Ooh. I'm amazed how you managed to make such a faithful disted 303 thing with just a regular chip. I spent weeks studying waveform output from ReBirth to make the protobass instrument, which is essentially a visual interpretation. There are no real filters involved, I think - just different curve shapes that get scaled, stretched and mixed based on how you twiddle the knobs. You could feast your eyes on the completely bizarre code if you want to.
LOL ...let me think of something to answer that... ... I just do stuff! <scientifically proper right up until "stuff"> I suppose it's halfway's educated experimentation on the fly. BS is the perfect platform to go nuts! ;D
My question would be, normal filters didn't cut it? Facinating, I wasn't thinking too much about that before, I guess. Anyway, neat work with it, though! Just wished it had an "ordinary" envelope, too. Lot's possible with it!
I did it four years ago (age 23). A year before that I had tried using FFT, with reasonable success although limited by the buffer size required (no fast parameter ramps) - sample of those results
Basically I didn't know what it would require, other than that it was "probably kind of advanced", since the original synth is analogue.
When I did it for musagi I went "ah, what the hell" and just tried to make it look and sound like ReBirth recordings. I wasn't familiar with much audio filtering, so I couldn't really use filters because it'd be like "going over the creek for water" compared to directly imitating the waveform. I didn't manage to get all the "wet and bubbly" nuances in, but it was close enough for my needs. And fun!
It's all just friggin stuff for the ears. Inspiration is the greatest purpose any sound device can have outside of it's basic use.
Download test11 again and see what you've made me do! HAHAHA...303, man... I was thinking about the silliest possible, but still entertaining sounding bass when I made that one and now... it's actually really not all that bad, haha. Wow... ;D ...anyway, have fun with it, OOOOhh and also note the drums now. A tiny bit offsyncish due to my laziness, but still.
One or two tiny more parameter tracks to manipulate the synths with a pattern and...sheeesh...this musagi could really scare some folks!
Scheisse... you made me think of a potentially not-horrible way of implementing parameter curves into the existing code. Will need some additional thought to see if it would cause any major conflicts, but I could probably salvage parts from different existing components and make this work in a day (frankensteining part windows and knob recording).
I believe the curves would update their specified target knob at around 400 tps, so that should be enough even for very rapid triggered shapes. Drawing the waveform would need some kind of keypoint system with bezier interpolation or such. Maybe a combined draw/smooth/pinch tool using mouse button and ctrl/shift?
Dude....I'm sorry man, but you HAVE to download test10 again.... I've made a cello that is freaking impossible. I've never even had such an instrument myself...and I've done plenty of things, but this is .... I'm ... it's... check it out!
