Hillz is a synth voice inspired by function generators such as DUSG or Maths, in particular by Frap Tools Falistri. Each of the two sections uses an internal Sine osc to trigger an ADSR envelope (with zero sustain) and make it loop at audio rate. Controlling the attack, decay and release of the envelope waveshaping is obtained. Rich sound and low cpu.
- gate : this fires the envelope controlling the main (amplitude) VCA.
- tune : pretty self explainatory 1v/oct control (here 0 = C note but you can change it going into the unit and resetting the pulse vco tune back to 0 cents)
- A : controls the attack of the VCA envelope
- D : controls the decay of the VCA envelope
- S : controls the sustain of the VCA envelope
- R : controls the release of the VCA envelope
- rise1 : controls the attack of the sound generating looping envelope for section 1
- fall1 : controls the decay and release of the sound generating looping envelope for section 1
- rise2 : controls the attack of the sound generating looping envelope for section 2
- fall2 : controls the decay and release of the sound generating looping envelope for section 2
- detune : slightly detunes the sine osc controlling section 2 to achieve beatings between the two voices
cpu : about 14%
firmware : v0.4.11 or later
requires : no dependencies
tips : send some modulations to the rise and fall parameters of both sections with scrupolous attenuation to achieve rich and interesting waveshaping. if you use it on a stereo chain you can enter the unit (clicking on “open”) and pan the two voices or set their levels very easily for a wider sound.
to do : add envelope curves (log\lin\exp) to all envelopes (both amplitude control and sound generation). find better sweetspots for the rise and fall ranges
Hillz.unit (31.6 KB)
basically the same unit with added logic operation on the two sections.
if you want to change the logic function click “open” and navigate to the “logic” mixer channel, enter it and click on the header of the Logics unit to change the operator.
- logics: bipolar level of the Logics section. i kept it bipolar so you can sum the normal or phase inverted output of the logic section
cpu: about 16%
