Re: "Antivocoder": does it exist ? ( a spectral "ducking" device ;) )

I don't know if this is what you want but I wonder if you are interested in spectral processing. I have two interpretations of your question: 1. Maybe want something which can amplify/squash individual bands, maybe one sound's band's amplifying/squashing another. This is called "cross-synthesis" or ...

Re: max/msp random float

Wrong. You are not getting random float numbers ranged between 0 and 1, whatever you think. If a float with six digits of precision repeats then you don't have randomisation. On 64-bit Max, all floating-point values must fit within 64 bits. Therefore, one will inevitably see a repeating number some...

Re: Renoise & Midi controller

Maybe check the list of tools. There is one called StepSequencer (the full URL is https://github.com/renoise/xrnx/blob/ma ... quencer.md) that also has pattern select. I don't know if you can use more than one at a time.

Duplex + Gridpie is fun! I think there hasn't been updates for Duplex recently because it sort of "just works". Download the version of Duplex and Gridpie for Renoise version 3.1, and it should work fine in 3.2 or whatever. Gridpie lets you launch patterns like clips, making Renoise work a little bi...

Re: VCV rack sequencer

I think the Impromptu WRITE-SEQ-64 is similar. It's a 4-channel sequencer with step-recording, some advanced functionality, but only one CV and one gate signal per channel, unfortunately. Impromptu has I think 11 sequencers, so they're definitely where I'd start. https://library.vcvrack.com/Imprompt...

Re: [Release Announce] Scheme-For-Max 0.1

tslime is specific to vim, so that is one thing to make a note of. So, in vim, you can type in `va)` in normal mode to select a parenthetical expression. Then tslime will send that text over to the console with a newline, and the newline is the part that triggers the evaluation of the expression. In...

@Voltcontrol Yeah! In fact, in the instruction manual they show how to set it up for a hexaphonic guitar, where each string gets its own voice.

Re: Twisted Electrons MEGAfm

I don't know if the FB-01 is necessarily less "grungy". The FB-01 has a filter on the output, which reduces noise but also can make it sound a bit "muffled". There are instructions for removing a capacitor which will reduce noise, but then you're getting close to the territory of the other Yamaha FM...

Re: Know MAX/MSP? I need your advice

Check out the built in BEAP objects. They have recorders, MIDI/CV I/O, effects, some basic oscillators, sequencers, etc. and any of the modules can be right clicked and opened up to figure out how it works. Because they use the built-in GUI elements, the parameters can be one-click MIDI-learned in M...

Re: Polyend Tracker

Generally with trackers you modulate using the effects columns, so a common approach is to copy a pattern and change the effect column. The Polyend has a "probability" effect, so that's an additional way. The Polyend and NerdSeq also have LFOs. Finally both the Polyend and the Nerdseq can have indep...

Disregard the file suffixes, they're both files containing sysex data. It's just that those files you're trying to load are single patches, and Dexed loads files containing banks of patches. I was looking and I don't think Dexed has any feature to load single patches... In your case I'd probably rec...

Re: WaveEdit to Serum?

Export your wav file with several tables, and then drag the wav over one of Serum's waveforms. 3 drop areas will show up, drop it on the one labeled "constant framesize". I have had best luck with 1, 4, 16, 64, or 256 waves, but that might be superstition. I did have trouble loading in some Casio CZ...

Re: WaveEdit to Serum?

I haven't used WaveEdit but I've used a few other editors with Serum. Serum likes to have a regular amount of fixed-width waves (by "regular" I'm fairly certain it wants a power-of-two number of waves). Otherwise it tries to auto-detect, and from experience, it gets confused on waves with a lot of h...

Blofeld... especially when you treat it as a multitimbral drum synth, can be a lot of fun. Probably would want an external sequencer, though. Alternatively, Waldorf Attack for iPad can get pretty deep. I was almost thinking of getting a Rack Attack but ended up getting the Blofeld instead (before al...

Re: digital piano setup

For what it's worth, I ran into a similar issue with a cheap pair of travel speakers.

If I put a high-pass filter after PianoTeq, it gets rid of the rumble that I couldn't hear per se, other than it made the speaker distort.
