I received a 301 a couple days ago and of course I’m in complete awe. Barely beginning to scratch the surface but here’s my first attempt at a custom unit — scannable harmonic oscillator inspired by a well known Eurorack harmonic oscillator, built around Sine Oscs and the brilliant Bump Scanner unit. Controls should be pretty self explanatory — ‘center’ scans through harmonics, ‘bwidth’ sets the width of each frequency band (bands have to overlap for smooth scanning), ‘xfade’ controls Bump Scanner’s ‘fade’ parameter, ‘fdbk’ controls Sine Oscs ‘feedback’ parameter and individual harmonics level faders control… well, individual harmonics levels.
Processor load should be around 33%.
Thanks Neil Parfitt and Joe Filbrun for your incredible videos!
hey. this is not a chain preset, this is a custom unit preset. you put it in presets/units/custom-unit directory.
to insert it into your patch you have to insert a custom unit, then click on its header’s soft button, then select ‘Load preset’.
Aha - Thanks @joe_biomassa ! I must have missed this important bit of info somewhere. Just got it working. Sounds lovely right off the bat!
EDIT: This is really useful to me - both because it sounds really great and I had been looking into the Verbos harmonic oscillator and the new Frap Tools Fumana. But also because it is relatively simple to deconstruct - having only a couple of layers - and everything is labelled - so it works well as a teaching tool too! I hadn’t started looking at Custom Units as I have been methodically making my way down the list of Units! Thanks again.
Glad you like it! Yes, it’s super simple, my first! I borrowed a Verbos a couple weeks ago and used it for a week, I wanted to play with it for a long time but in person it was even better than I thought.
Interesting. Using the 48khz firmware I can run two copies of this unit, the processor load goes up to 80% but playback is perfect, no crackles. On 96khz only one copy goes at about 62% and crackles are constant. Anybody else noticed anything like that?
