Multi-Mirror aka Fold Distortion aka Multireflector 2

In yearly ages I designed a macro called "Multi-reflection". That was years and years ago and the problem with the macro is that 4 levels of reflecting is alway not enough. And all of the levels were built one by one. And everything is supposed to work with Peak Detector. And these are clearly flaws. And since that was not good as I always want to have I redesigned that multi-reflecting macro. Now it's Multi-Mirror with Stereo, Mono and Event version available! Also the structure became smaller, a lot:

 

  • In – Audio in, typical range -1 to +1.
  • Fx Reflecting amp-factor, 1 to *as you wish number*, 1 means no reflecting.
  • Out – Audio out, range -1 to +1
  • Event version has 0 to 1 ranges to keep compatibility with my LFO Modulators

The Multi-mirror allows to reflect the incoming signal very effective as it done with math. It's often called as Fold-distortion and detailed description of the effect and sound examples can be found in the old Mutli-reflector post. The new multi-mirror macros can be found at downloads.

How about a little collection of waveforms?

About 4500 ones!

All this huge collection by Advanture Kid you can get for free at their site. Also there are some extra free stuff like Reverb Impulses and etc.

Advanced multiwave oscillator

Hello my silent visitors 🙂

I’ve finished to build Reaktor ensemble that contain something that will show how serious it’s going to be, how clear my ideas are. I know I have not much of publishing experience. I know my English looks strange, probably. I know the site is mostly empty at the moment. But I clearly see reasons I started the project, reasons I’ll continue the work. Due to specificity of the information and preparations processes the ensemble and the all the promised stuff will be published in next post.

During building the ensemble I realized that how much I don’t like these simple multi-wave oscillators based on cross-fading I decided to waste an extra week to redesign this *classic* building block. I didn’t want to ruin a lot of time and I wasn’t sure in my success. Today I finished the redesigned oscillator, and I decided to put it out as another separate post. Basically, I don’t like the fact I have not a clear publishing strategy for the blog. Since the way it goes now reminds me back engineering I think I should make it more clear to myself first.

Anyway, the thing I don’t like about these simple multi-wave oscillators is that most of them produce separated waves. And since the output waves (Tri, Sin, Pls, Saw) have quite different trigonometric nature it’s quite ineffective to mix them down to one wave. The mixing result looks and sounds predictably boring. I said “not this time, baby” and sat down to brainstorm. Read the rest of this entry »

Custom Wave Oscillator

Another my ordinary building block – Custom Wave Oscillator (CWO). Another bone to my synths. I could say there is no anything special, but I have to admit there are things that do unique stuff working side by side to the other ordinary building blocks. By the end of this year you’ll get what the hell I’m talking about (I hope 🙂 ). Right now, there is general info for the macro:
