edit: PLEASE REDOWNLOAD, PUCK IS BUGFIXED! also check the other posts for a new version (Puck plus)
hello dear 301ers! it’s been a while since my last contribution.
i wanted to replicate a weird max patch i did last week, sort of chaotic modulator with very weird shapes but i ended up with something else.
Puck is a custom source unit that can be used for both sound generation and modulation. It is based on two sine oscillators modulating each other’s phase. Two low pass filters (which share the same controls) are used to smooth out the modulation of the phases but believe me, they end up doing much more
- ph1 amount of phase modulation for oscillator 1
- ph2 amount of phase modulation for oscillator 2
- tune1 v/oct control of oscillator 1
- tune2 v/oct control of oscillator 2
- cutoff cutoff frequency of the two low pass filters
- Q resonance of the two low pass filters
cpu around 9%
tips with ph1 and ph2 greater than zero try experimenting with different tune1 and tune2 values (even sequencing them) and then slowly close the filter to find sweet spots then very subtly increase Q (use FINE mode or super fine mode holding shift when increasing Q), you’ll immediately discover a lot of very realistic brassy sounds! listen to the demo to get what i mean. then you can tune puck via both cutoff or Q or even sequence them.
or put it in a global chain and use it as very weird lfo

the demo is just puck and some big sky reverb:
