CDP / Soundshaper Exp #1

Post by TS » Mon Jun 26, 2017 12:57 pm

It started as a drum loop and then I applied several CDP processes inside Soundshaper. I just got it this weekend and I am loving it... Although, I am mostly scratching my head and getting errors! This is the first cool result I have gotten. I am happy to share how I got this result, if anyone is interested.

I thought I was in another part of the forum, this doesn't seem like the right place for my post. Sorry about that!

so the cdp is still alive. i remember using that 25 years ago.
yeah, it's complex (and used to crash easily) but that's a nice sound you got :tu:
don't need midi, don't need keys, just want knobs and cables (all together now ;-)

Thanks! Yeah, it has been fun. Hopefully, I can figure out how to make some of the tricky processes work. I discovered it when looking for alternatives to the Soundmagic Spectral plugins, since I do not own a Mac.

it was the first phase vocoder i had access too. took three runs to get an 8 sec piece of speech processed to 60 seconds but in the end it worked and sounded really nice!

I have fond memories of running CDP on a silicon graphics computer in the 90's. Would be nice if it was available on linux too, though perhaps it can be built from source code.

Sounds like you two haven't messed with it in a while, you should try it out again. I would love to share ideas with people. The CDP forum is a ghost town.

CDP is now free software under the GPL. And it does run in Linux.

Also there a new-ish front end for CDP being developed by Xenakios.

But the project seems to have stalled as of late.

Thanks, I'll give it a try. Compiling from source code isn't always easy but the instructions look solid for once.

Will always have a soft spot (har har) for the CDP. Never unlocked even a fraction of its potential in years of messing around.

Yeah! It's deep. Some processes are still a mystery to me, I can't figure out how to make them work - I just get errors.
