Hey, thanks for the feedback guys! :)

@ZebraTamer

I'll update the examples after some more work on the patch.
I went for a completely dry sound so any mistakes can be spotted easily, but the finished patch will have some basic effects setup.

The shaper module is present in the 1st example, I was talking about the version 2 of clip 2.
Anyway, some small changes were made here and there for the 2nd example but don't really remember them, maybe they made a bigger difference than expected (as sometimes that's exactly what happens even with very tiny amounts of offsets)

Just updated the examples,
been working everyday and I every time I did an update I thought... this can't get any better but every time it did.

Fixed higher notes, changed OSC split, adapted waveforms.

Now it should sound a bit darker and smoother but not duller.
Cleaner, rounder, but more responsive with "oversaturated" hard velocity (bite)
Tines and hammer timbres reworked and featured at lower levels by default (will have the ability to set those via XY)
..any finally, overall tonal balance with fine EQ adjustments (all inside Zebra of course)
added: envelopes all finetuned also, tines release a bit less noticeable and overall a bit more hammer bounce (finetuned velocity-amount also) should behave more like in the physical world now :P


Beautiful "soft" chords: https://www.box.com/s/r49q2pua1svb5eauuefb
and
What'd I Say: https://www.box.com/s/ya9ev3bsz5mgevc9n5db

Will get on the Wurli asap! :)

...are you still thinking of doing the whole (well, non-FX) GM set? :love:

Well, if you ask me now, I don't wanna hear of such a thing :lol:
.. but yeah, I mean, that's one idea that keeps coming back... but 1st, lets just hope that the 3 keyboards will get finished on time ;)

Thanks for checking out!

Getting better and better,

Before setting up the performance XY controls, I would like to know some opinions on how does it sound/feel aka beta testers needed! (Zebra 2.5.4+, latest version saved on rev 1331) edit: no more need for beta testers at the moment, thank you very much for applying! :)

Cheers"

What a hell of work you have here! :shock:

I just love it as it is! Very very very nice!

The attack is like real, it's very playable.
On Roland A90 the velo is Great.
Even the xy pad is just well - helping my old Dx7 to play a little harder:
(Y down )

Huge Congrat! 8) :tu:

Cheers, :)

-use as few stuff as you can, but not that you begin limiting yourself. (that way you will have more control and immediately remember what, where...)

Thanks for applying for beta testing.
Thanks for the feedback so far to everybody as well.

atm, I will work with the current beta test team to fine-tune the patch.
Will keep you posted, work on the Wurli and Clav should follow early next year! :)
Until then, Happy Holidays!

The "What I'd Say" sounds very much like the original!

hmm... can't really tell what the original sounds like since there's much distortion going on, but that always felt to me like a Wurli..

...and I thought a little while back, "It's in the bag, once I got the Rhd patch done, I'll change it up a little and it'll turn into a Wurli" ... but it's far from the truth, now I realize building the Wurli will be a different challenge all by it self. :D

3ee,
I didn't anticipate your vocals would sound so much like Ray Charles since you are a brother of a different color ;)

Wow! These sound really, really great!
Really well done! I can't wait to hear the final results!

You have to post the complete link instead of the shortened version.

youtube . com / watch?v=YyCIzQAoHNI
instead of
youtu . be / YyCIzQAoHNI

I have no idea why that sometimes happenes, I guess when you use the "Copy video URL" thingy instead of manually copying it.

Cheers

Not me in the clip :D just some "random" YT video.

Yeah, the current version isn't updated through out the clips, wait until you hear that! hehe ;) It's easier to be liked too, I mean.. who doesn't love EPs? :D

Yeah, I pondered the idea of releasing a 2nd volume with those "alternative" less popular versions someday :) ... until than, I'll be happy if I'll get the magical Wurli contrast/contour 1st :cry: (it's harder than I expected but hopefully I'll figure it out :) )
