  • RE: Anyma Phi v1.0 public beta

    The Anyma tries to be smart when detecting whether the Expression CC is present or not (because that determines whether it uses or bypasses the Velocity Envelope), but doing so it expects the expression signal to be sent almost continuously. This is fine when using a wind controller, but not in your case.
    I think it could be better to allow you to force whether the Expression CC is used or not, for instance with an option in the settings.
    Or at least to set the "timeout"; i.e., the time after which the synth considers there isn't an expression signal anymore if it didn't receive any.
    Would something like that be OK to you?

  • RE: Feature request - some tips

    @AndyHornBlower The Anyma patch structure is far from ideal for specifying FM sounds, but couldn't the structures you describe be done using VA oscillators and FM operator effects, with judicious mix routing and envelopes that modulate the "expression" and pitch mapping destinations for each of the osc/ops?

    @mimj44 Les noms courts des paramètres de la matrice sont parfois "grisés" (et un peu illisibles) pour indiquer qu'ils n'ont aucun effet pour le moment. Ca dépendra donc du patch sur lequel tu es. Pas de panique, le prochain item sur notre liste à la sortie de la v1.0 sont les documents/vidéos tuto/démo !

    Didn't know that, thanks!

    If nothing happens when you click "Connect", it means the editor couldn't even open the MIDI ports. This generally means the ports are already open by some other application or driver, because Windows doesn't allow a MIDI port to be used by more than one application at a time.

    I've just uploaded v1.0b276 (links in the top post of this topic), with two new effects and two new modulator groups.

    Here's what's new:

    • Added a Bitcrusher effect (Timbre group) with continuous bit depth and sample rate reduction.
    • Added a Ping-pong delay effect (Delay group), together with a sync variant.
    • Added an Algorithmic modulator group, providing algorithm-based utilities to generate sequences:
      • The Euclidean sequencer generates a large variety of rhythms whose beats are as evenly spaced as possible.
      • The Hexadecimal sequencer generates a sequence based on the binary representation of a 32-bit hexadecimal number, with each of its 8 digits controllable individually.
    • Added a Physics modulator group, providing physical models and simulations:
      • Bouncing ball simulates the movement of a ball thrown in the air and bouncing over a hard surface.
      • Ball impact simulates up to 8 independent bouncing balls thrown in the air and bouncing over a hard surface, and outputs their velocity where there are impacts, making it more suitable for modulating the expression of percussive oscillators.
      • Spring-damper system simulates a mass attached to the input with a damped spring, making a "springy" or "bouncy" version of the input.

    If no new bug surfaces before the end of the week, this will be the last beta version, meaning that the v1.0 release is imminent.
    After the release, we will focus mostly on improving the documentation, tutorials and feature demos for a time.

    What is the problem with the editor on Windows 8.1? Does the editor stay blank?

    Thanks a lot for the great feedback!

    I've just uploaded v1.0b270 (links in the top post of this topic), with very minor bugfixes and a new Chaos modulator group.

    Here's what's new:

    • Added a Change polarity modulator that turns unipolar (0% to 100%) values into bipolar ones (-100% to 100%), and vice-versa.
    • Added a new modulator group, Chaos, that provides various ways to generate chaotic sequences:
      • Logistic map, Tent map, and Circle map, each with controllable parameters.
      • Discrete chaotic map, which allows continuous switching between Duffing, Gingerbreadman, Bernoulli and Hénon maps.
      • Cellular automaton, with 32 cells, selectable rule and initial state, as well as trigger outputs for 3 different cells, whose indices can modulate.

    Thanks @JLS for the inspiration and advice.

  • RE: Direct vs Link Latency

    @Clint Thanks for all the very detailed analyses you made. As soon as I get a sizeable chunk of free time, I intend to carefully read them all from the beginning and contribute tests that can help us understand what's going on and get to the bottom of this.

    @steviek Nobody else of Aodyo can comment on this particular issue, unfortunately, but we're reading everything posted. It's just that I can only do one thing at a time, and such a question deserves proper treatment and will take time to answer. Sorry that we've not been very good for giving a sense of where we are and where we are heading to. I hope we'll be able to communicate a bit more often from this point on.

    I've just uploaded v1.0b266 (links on the top post of this topic), with mainly bug fixes and a new "Dirty formant filter".

    Here's what's new:

    • fixed the timing of patch imports for the Windows/Linux versions of the editor; patches should now import correctly on these platforms
    • added Save and Import commands on patch list context menus in the editor
    • fixed the pseudo-random number generator on the Anyma Phi
    • mappings now have a +100% amount by default
    • lumped all pitch-insensitive oscillators to the beginning of the oscillator list in order to avoid losing the pitch source and mapping setup in paraphonic patches
    • added a new "Dirty formant filter" that uses the same old-school FoF vowel filtering technique as the Artin VFOF oscillator, but applied to any input sound

    Thanks @markusschloesser, @bibenu, @JLS, @DeepSea, and @AndyHornBlower for reporting.
