The definitive MIDI controller

New sounds, moment of inspiration

A few new sound clips: the first one is another experiment with the oscillator pitch shifting, tuned to sound like inharmonic overtones. Just three oscillators, all parameters are constant. There is no chorus effect, no LFOs, all the movement is coming from the oscillators!

The second one is a very plain goa riff loop, playing with the filter and oscillator waveshape knobs. It starts slow, but once it gets going it’s unstoppable.

The last clip is a repeating bassline (from a game that was very popular in its time, I have to add) with again just one single oscillator producing the sound, with the synth in monophonic mode. Enjoy!

Reverb and delays provided by Lexicon as before.

    When I started building the synth, I first thought about making some kind of a DIY kit. But I wouldn’t have the capacity to offer any real technical support for it, and due to the complexity you have to know how to debug it.

    Likewise the software development environment is not exactly friendly towards beginners. Freescale has apparently completely given up supporting Symphony Studio, and many have reported failing to get the debugger to work.

    The main programming language is DSP56k assembly.

    If you can get past these difficulties, the PCBs, designs, and BOMs are available: drop me an email!
