Element VST is a loop modulating wav player (sometimes known as a "sampler") which loads a single 8, 16 or 24 bit wav.
- wrap mode looping ('normal looping') with crossfade.
- bounce mode looping (forward-reverse).
- two crossfade modes.. fixed time (up to 1s) or loop relative (up to entire length of loop).
- 4 interpolation modes: floor ('none'), linear, cubic and hermite.
- emulated downsampling.
- loop position can modulate filter cutoff.
- a bunch of filter modes (low, band, high, cut, peak in moog, svf or biquad).
- curveable envelopes and stuff.
- modulating start/end (loop or otherwise) reverses playback if end is lower than start.
- 8 voices poly.
What this feature set translates to...
- 'floor' interpolation would put you in early sampler territory and alias nicely especially with pitching down.
- long crossfade times (more CPU intensive with 'quality' interpolation) aren't done often..
- bounce mode's a bit fun.
Element VST was developed with a series of open source wav player modules created for SynthEdit, so that this item can be considered partially open source (e.g. the LFO modules have not been released at this time).
