The summer sales are coming and I already purchased a full set of tools from my wishlist. Now that I can get tunes released, I just need to work faster and create tracks easier.
Yesterday I started to learn Max4Live plugin development. For the first trial comes the remake of my simple Comb Filter with feedforward topology. You can see the old VST version here. The M4L version is on maxforlive.com.
I may make some more, depending on time and ideas coming (some ambitious ideas might take a long time to finish). I’m also looking forward to Oscillot modular synthesizer – it’s easier to add own little plugin to already existing library of over 100 devices, than to build fully-blown synth from scratch. Even Oscillot Lite version can sound great. Unfortunatelly, so far it got little attention from customers – much less than it deserves, IMO.
Recently I was also inspired by Eurorack and it’s unusual modules which create random, seemless patterns and envelopes. This is certainly something that classic substractive synthesis is missing. Instead of having complete synth with all features you want, take random oscillator and let it make the music on it’s own, something you wouldn’t imagine. Check these movies, they are very inspiring.
