Monday morning synth thread.
Topic of the day: VST effects plug-ins
sure but you're going to get a lot of latency. most onboard sound cards can use something like ASIO4all but it's not ideal.
FerricTDS is my favorite free one
Nah it's not bad, they're individually defeatable too. Having a pre/post switchable delay on your verb is handy too. I love drums hard panned right with delay-fed reverb hard panned left.
If you're looking for instruments I really like LuSH-101 for muh supersaws, but everything by NI is good. The Korg legacy VSTi collection is also a super underappreciated gem.
Synthesizer.com and a 1x16 modular I'm making out of Pine (I'm cheap as fuck) so it's 36" by 10" roughly.
I'm going to stain it a nice cherry color and do a poly finish, hopefully it'll look nice, I wanted to use Oak but at ~15$ a foot there was no fucking way.
Nice, what modules do you have in mind? I strongly suggest the Q118 instrument interface, I use it constantly.
Just to add on, I'm sort of just going in steps because of how expensive these things are to put together at once:
>get power supply and first oscillator
>get envelopes and mixer
>get MIDI interface
>get second oscillator (can be used as an LFO)
I figure with a keyboard interface, two oscillators, a filter, envelopes, and a VCA ill have basically a standard mono synth in a cool modular form that I can actually use.
Then comes the fun or adding more components.
Nah, the way I have it figured it'll be even cheaper this way, plus I'm not to crazy about the MIDI interface they use in the entry system, the new modules allow you to have a second gate and pitch output with out using a multiple unit.
Yeah, I'm thinking of getting the new midi to CV modules as well.
I have the old midi interface and it sits in my second panel with a broken sample and hold. The microbrute works way better in that regard.
I have a mini brute which has both CV and Gate out, so I can use that to control the unit until I add the second module (unless of course I'm using it hard sunk or as an LFO)
I'm planing on getting a Beatstep soon too, which also has CV and Gate out in addition to full MIDI.
Guys, I have a fun new game to play

Looks like Bazilla is near release.
I tried the demos, I've used some pretty demanding synthesizers, but this one was pretty head scratchy. I spent too much time on it wondering why something wouldn't make a sound than I did making sounds.
this is more amusing than I expected
