Strike v2.0.0 - LPG/Filter/Envelope/Compressor/Etc

You nailed the Mangrove sound especially that soft sync- thankyou!

This is 4 of them plus 4 lpg units

great stuff @tomf ! your version sounds much closer! beautiful! (and at a fraction of the cpu drain)

The LPG’s sound really great :slight_smile:

I agree - formant osc sounds really good. Great work :slightly_smiling_face:

Formant sounds fantastic. I’ve never had a mangrove and now I want one.

Love Formant! I’ve had Mangrove(s) in the past, but always found it a bit "one trick pony"ish. Very happy with the ER-301 unit, it does everything I’d want from a Mangrove and sounds great.

Strike v1.2.0 (hub) is up!

Very excited for this new unit:

CPR
cpr
cpr-sub
cpr-scope

A stereo peak compressor with sidechain and optional auto makeup gain. Also includes outputs for gain reduction and a gate when the compressor is active.

CPR sets new standards both in graphics and user interface!
amazing work!!!

Here’s a quick demo of CPR, https://photos.app.goo.gl/ucSa8fcTYhzb1LQq9

Here I’m using the compressor on a drum loop, setting the ratio really high to squash the hell out of it and then using the reduction output to modulate the sample playback speed. I also use the compressors “active” gate to re-trigger the sample. Finally I throw a triangle oscillator on the threshold to change it over time.

Strike v1.3.0 (hub) fast follow :wink:

One new unit and some small optimizations to CPR.

Lift
lift

A lowpass gate using a slew limiter envelope and a 6dB/oct filter.

I find the simplicity here very useful here to distinguish this from the Strike unit. Instead of an Arc type envelope it uses a slew limiter which behaves more like an “analog” style envelope. Instead of a 12dB/oct filter it uses a 6dB/oct filter which is much more subtle.

During testing I’ve discovered quite a few practical uses for Lift:

  • Hold gate high and it’s simply a 6db/oct filter, easy peasy
  • Set release to zero and it becomes a track and hold (thanks to the filter)
  • Set a long attack time to naturally fade in the input signal
  • Use the active output from CPR to gate a signal smoothly

the Strike train cannot be stopped and I’m riding it to the sky.

Here’s a quick preview video of Lift as well as a new timed latch I just added to lojik:

Timed latch! I’ve been wanting that for some time!

hey @tomf, I think i may have found a bug.

In Strike (the LPG unit itself), v1.3.1, any modulation sent to the rise or fall parameters seems to be converted into pulses. I’ve tried sine oscs and i2c CV with similar results. The pulse width seems to vary depending on the frequency/length of the modulation.

Oh weird… confirmed. Will fix asap.

Edit: It’s a display bug… the branch view output is showing the EOF signal instead of the modulation signal. Seeing what can be done…
