Postby bjporter; Thu Jun 01, 2017 9:25 am One Synth Challenge #100: Lord of the Springs (Taron Wins!)

Welcome to the One Synth Challenge #100! It's a friendly music competition where you can win cool prizes but most importantly, meet amazing musicians, and learn a lot about mixing, sound design, and more! :)


Submissions will show up here (may be a long delay before showing up):
https://soundcloud.com/kvrosc/sets/one- ... e-100-lord


Want a chat room with other OSCers? Join our slack here



Lord of the Springs is a free win32/64 physically modeled synth made by long time OSCer Taron. From Taron's page: "LotS features 128 voices in form of constantly active spring systems, which a key hit stimulates as well as modwheel scrubbing!
As one might imagine, springs will generally create rather metallic sounds, which makes it ideal for complex glockenspiel sounds, xylophones, marimbas and so on, but the freedom granted by the features allows for a much greater variety of sounds from soft, dreamy pads to harsh percussion and other percussive sounds."

Man, I know I said I was done with these but if my friend Taron has made a synth, there is no way I can pass this up.

I'm assuming we're going back to the original rules. Free FX only, etc.

Hi guys, long time, just want to say grats to OSC for reaching this landmark! :clap: :party:

I know it's technically been more than 100 OSCs, and the real 100th competition duly celebrated, but still..

Kudos to Brian and the community for keeping this going and in such a friendly and spirited way. Image

:wheee: ...well, I'm more in a duck'n'cover mode, but ready to serve, should things go sideways! :box:

I will make an introduction video, covering all the new features, too. Just about 20 minutes ago I posted the last update, adding pure NOISE as an option, if you crank the SPRING B's diffusion all the way to 1.0 (100%). This will help with SNARES and the likes.

A number of features I've added exclusively for us here so it can cover more ground for us. However, it's sole purpose used to be to be a rather specific little instrument. It's a wee bit more now! :hyper:

So, yeah, video and documentation will follow shortly. As well as a proper preset GUI, which is still missing, though you can load and save presets in its own format and fxp and fxb, as well! That means: no worries!

Well, I'm very, very excited to hear what you all will do with it, where you will take it and whether I'll get any sleep for the next few days/weeks, hehe. :borg:

Thanks, BJ, for your tremendous support, confidence and encouragement. Once I get to the "about" box, hahaha, you'll find yourself in there for sure! :hug:

Have fun, all, and don't hold back, if you need :help: !

And...already I had to update the presets, because I forgot to consider the NOISE addition... Well, if you download again, you should have proper presets for snare and tambourine. :oops:

Here's a little demo for the new noise and some of the new features:
https://soundcloud.com/taronium/lotsv2demo01/s-S1WHL

Absolutely PURE LotS, by the way, except for a limiter it uses no external effects, not even EQ (which probably makes a better excuse than an achievement, but well...) :phones:

Great choice for the 100th OSC!

Taron, I'd dearly have liked to play this brainchild of yours for months now had only Reaper found the .dll I stored in the usual folder. I run Reaper 5.40 on Ubuntu 16.04 via Wine and my faint hope that this issue would be resolved with your new version was not fulfilled. So if you could check into this I would be very glad. If it is too much of an effort please give me a small notice if you don't mind. If you need further help I will do everything I can.

Have a nice day, you all.

Oh, Ruedi, I wouldn't know where to start, I'm afraid. I have no way of testing your situation, though, I have tried it on Reaper on win7 (64bit) without troubles. I'm assuming Wine might have troubles handling the graphics stuff? :shrug: ...I just can't tell. :neutral:

So...it just won't start up or what exactly is happening (if anything?!)?

Well, fortunately I'm not exactly on a winning streak, hehe, but besides that...I wonder, if I should actually just support all of you instead of making a track myself, I don't know, yet. But it's hard to resist. Yet, you guys ROCK way too hard! 8) :tu:

Haha, I was just thinking it would be quite funny if that were to happen. By all means, I hope you do enter and come away win the win :D

Just make sure you are not working with your own super mega ultra version of the plugin :hihi:

The note offset sliders above the keys are great fun. Well done there, a unique sound for sure, good for keys. I might make a composition piece for this entry. One thing, is there a way to adjust the velocity amount?
