Well, yes... that's a great linear interface... but if it's outputting anything but sine waves, and it doesn't have complex envelopes for each harmonic... it's ultimately worthless.ppg_wavecomputer wrote:The Interface is lovely. If only they had incorporated some more modulation routings (like oscillator crossmod), more elaborate envelopes, another LFO, and a ringmodulator...Automatic Gainsay wrote:Eeeuuuwww.ppg_wavecomputer wrote:Seriously, the sound is extremely raw and the single harmonics are no pure sine waves but closer to pulse waves. You have two filter sections, actually, a simple low-pass in each of the Harmonic Generator sections, and then a multimode VCF with independent outputs for LPF, BPF, and HPF, which can be modulated using a very simple envelope or an LFO.
It's so hard to find a good hardware additive synthesizer with a great interface.
There is some RMI Harmonic Synthesizer stuff to be found here:
Crossmod has nothing to do with additive synthesis. LFO, again, worthless. Ring modulator? Dude, you're not looking for an additive synth at all.
