Below are a number of soundclips I recorded, with descriptions of the patching setup. They provide a small sample of the sounds the synthesizer is capable of. All soundclips were recorded directly to my computer. These clips are all taken from the same 16-minute session, which you can download here
- The VCO through the VCA with a square wave modulating the amplitude, through the state variable filter in Lowpass mode being swept by the second LFO's triangle wave. Square wave LFO is slowed down towards the end.
- The VCO through the VCF modulated the Sample and Hold outputting a random voltage caused by the white noise... this one is to demonstrate the way the SVF clips-very ugly! But it can be useful.
- The first in a series-square wave from the VCO being pulse width modulated by a triangle LFO.
- The same pulse width modulated squarewave being amplitude modulated by the gate output of the sample and hold via the VCA...
- The same wave now being frequenc modulated by one of the ADSRs, controlled by the S+H's gate again...
- The same wave now being synced via the sync input to the first VCO.
- Now, my favorite, the same wave now through the VCA controlled by the S+H gate AND the VCLPF controlled by the S+H with a white noise in.
- Simple one here... square wave through the VCLPF being swept with high resonance.
- The obligatory "wind/wave" soundclip, made using the white noise out and the VCLPF.
- Here is what many people thing of when the hear "noise" (as opposed to thinking of white noise)... One VCO being frequency modulated by white noise, and then by the other VCO! Ack!
- Same wave as above bit with something fun being done to it-through the VCA with a square wave modulating, then through the SVVCF.
- More weird sounds... earlier today I was making nice bubble noises, here is me failing to replicate that sound and instead creating something else interesting with the VCO and random S+H with very fast clock speeds, being amplitude modulated slightly by the S+H gate out.
- The same wave being amplitude modulated by the ADSR, I am using the manual gate switch here to control the level... I also change the clock rate a bit midway through.
- If you have 16 minutes to spare, here is the mp3 of the whole session... lots of pauses and mistakes, but lots of sounds too.
