4xPitchShifter v2.1
By Gerald Hauzenberger

Multi pitch shifter effect for vocals.
This ensemble is an attempt to simulate the pitch shifter effect of the multi-effects processor Boss SE-50 (patch 112). It features 4 parallel pitch shifters that can be used on vocals. In combination with shouting/screaming this creates the distortion-like effect used by various aggrotech bands like Suicide Commando, Psyclon Nine, Tactical Sekt, etc.

Changes (Version 2.1):
- Minor GUI changes.


Purform Granular Delay v1.1
By Peter Dines

Stereo panning grain delay
This is a stereo version of the quad delay used in Purform's White Box presentation.
The delayed voices can be rotated 360 degrees and more through the stereo field manually
or with an LFO. Buffers can be frozen individually or from a master switch.

It's designed for live control or host automation so built in automation is minimal.



Zeit III v2.0
By Glyn Darby

Polyphonic grain synth
Polyphonic grain synth with plenty of control of movement,pitch ect.Resonator and effects make it quite cpu hungry though.Just 1 sample included to keep upload size small.Hope it might be of use to someone.

By Jason Pottorff

Another freakenstien monster from my live percussion collection.
A collection of body parts strewn about the NI library put into a new body and re-animated to a new life. :P

It's pretty self explanatory, like most of my machines, just press play and start twisting knobs and blowing through the presets. I won't take credit for anything in this drum powered machine except some light construction, some design, and a need to fulfill.
Have fun,

p.s. if anyone feels the need to further alter this beast, I would love to know what you come up with. That also includes any music made with it.

FUMB v1.0
By Kim Bostroem

User-friendly FM synthesizer with 4 operators, LFO, overdrive and a peculiar stereo effect
FM synthesis is a powerful sound design method. Alas, with most FM synthesizers you rather have to be a technical engineer to create new sounds. Consequently, many musicians feel discouraged and find themselves browsing through the presets only.
FUMB invites you to tweak knobs and explore the possibilities of frequency modulation simply by fumbling around.

The central panel of FUMB is organized in four rows. Each row corresponds to one sine wave oscillator and all possible modulations that can be applied to it. In the left part of each row, the oscillator's amplitude, key velocity, pitch and envelope are adjusted. In the central part, the oscillator is modulated by the other oscillators and by itself.

To the right of the FM matrix, the FM amount of each oscillator (NOT its pitch or its amplitude) is modulated by a central LFO which is adjusted by the controllers at the panel top. There, the LFO rate is adjusted and can be synced to the host tempo. The LFO envelope is a ramp envelope with two parameters, the delay time and the tempo of the fade-in. Note that the LFO envelope amplitude is overridden by the mod wheel. At the wheel's zero position, the LFO is completely controlled by the LFO envelope. By cranking up the mod wheel, you increase the LFO modulation amount.
Finally, the rightmost two columns of each oscillator's row set its panorama and output volume.

The total FM signal is fed into the effect section at the panel top next to the LFO settings. First, a peculiar stereo effect, the "LR Mangler (LRM)", is added that, roughly, sums and multiplies each voice with an inverted, phase delayed copy of itself. The result of the LR Mangler can be viewed in the phase correlation display. The parameters of the LR Mangler should be tweaked so that the displayed sound spreads into both dimensions of the display, giving a pleasant stereo image.
Lastly, the signal is fed into an overdrive unit, giving the sound a little warmth or, if cranked up, some good amount of dirt.

For those who are more familiar with frequency ratios instead of octaves and semitones, there is a converter tool in the panel's B view. Note that the "Fine" knob sets an absolute detuning, while the "Oct" and "Semi" knobs detune by an amount relative to pitch of the key pressed.

FUMB v2.2
By Kim Bostroem
User-friendly FM synthesizer with 4 operators, LFO, low-pass filter and a special stereo effect
I just wanted to make a usable, straightforward FM synthesizer that can be easily fumbled around with to create sounds. Also, it would be nice to have some low-pass filtering to supress some of the harsh harmonics that often come with FM.
With FUMB, for the first time it is fun for me to create FM sounds, be it old-school 80s stuff or modern lounge style. (Back in the days, I would hate the DX7 because I didn't get any clue of how to use it, and I hated the presets, too ;-)
So, fumble and enjoy!



- new and rearranged snapshots
(the category items can be used as an init snapshot for the indicated category)
- minor corrections

- added low-pass filter
- removed overdrive (not really of much use in this synth)
