Can you not do the same to the unison knob or mod sliders the same thing and just give it a host ID as well? Or like LFO shape list is a control that can be seen by the host. Can you not do the same for the mod source or mod target list? I don't totally see why so many parameters are seen in Corona but then a bunch aren't.
It's just a silly technical detail. It can fixed and I'm planning to do it later.
Well that's good to hear. If buy corona again if that happened. I would highly suggest giving the modulation source and target lists host parameter ids as well as every missing button or setting. Then corona will join the elite club of vst synths (like sylenth1, gforce synths, poly-Ana, spire, etc.) that can be 100% controlled from hardware like nektar and automap etc. even arp step velocity. It would be cool if corona had parameter ids for not only the arp step velocity but also glide per step and hold (from the previous step) as you can currently do with the mouse.
This is a block of text that can be added to posts you make. There is a 255 character limit. Once I have something clever, I will certainly fill it in.

I see :) Zip the WAV file and then swap .zip to .dwb extension. It should work, but the previous methods look more convenient.
Yeah, that fixed it for me.

But it is not what is stated in the guide on the webpage:

Custom SF2/WAV oscillators
Place them at Documents > discoDSP > Corona > Banks > User.dwb folder and they will appear next time Corona is loaded.Create additional categories by adding new folders with .dwb extension and keep your tones organized.


When I created Folder.dwb folder and put in the folder (as described above) nothing showed up in Corona. I needed to zip it (not rar) and then rename the .zip to .dwb to get Corona to see the file.

Did you place the Folder.dwb at Documents > discoDSP > Corona > Waves? It should work. Otherwise User.dwb won't load too.

As this is waveforms for the oscillators, it doesn't seem logical to me that they should be placed in the patch bank sub-folder, but rather the waves sub-folder.

Sorry about the confusion, I meant Waves folder.

Ah I see, what really happened. This refers to .SF2 and .WAV files only. A folder won't work since sub-folders inside .dwb are not supported.

As said, for let's say Custom.dwb folder to work, it has to be placed at Documents > discoDSP > Corona > Waves > Custom.dwb with all the WAV / SF2 files on it.

Yes, I got it to work when I packed the folder as a zip file and renamed the zip to dwb and then placed it in that subfolder alongside the other dwb files there.

Dominique Huchet aka tinga has released two Corona sound banks.

Birds & Noises / Download

Birds presets use osc3 like a LFO, using the "Classic Wav" folder, so you can change the song by changing the wave, by this way playing on your keyboard you can create infinity of birds song, many other presets use osc3 as LFO.

Demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MH6nAPmrpsk


Wendy / Download

An attempt to create some instrumental textures, presets using Just Intonation or Indian tunings are in C.

Demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdMgCgSCcPo
