I’ve posted these units before but I thought it would be a good idea to make a separate thread for them since I’ve just finished cleaning up the code and writing a nice README with more details.
I present Simple Synthesizers!
It’s a collection of saw-based synths that can be used for all kinds of things and, most importantly, creating polyphony on your ER-301.
These units are created using the Middle Layer SDK which means they require only a tiny amount of CPU compared to their equivalent UI based patch. This means they can be used quickly and cheaply as a base for more complex creations or even as a zero-effort sound source when searching for inspiration.
Any and all feedback is appreciated, including ideas for improvements or new features. I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with it and I’ve left a couple of patch ideas in the documentation.
As for future improvements, here are some ideas I’ve had so far:
