You know that RAPID has 8 layers? :neutral: Imagine each layer is a unison voice so you can give your unison voice everything you want...
Lush-101 has 8 layers too :neutral:

Thanks sampleconstruct and delta. I didn't know about that. i will have to explore those soon. :hyper:

You can do cutoff spread (or any parameter spread) in Falcon and HALion.

I think this function is not that important. It is like "why can Rapid only have 8 unison voices? Serum can go up to 16..." - "because it is pointles. You can get the same sound with 8 or less voices. And if you really really really need more... than just use the second osc."

Result: no! Individual functions per unison voices is not planed because glitch fx, mb saturator, reverse delay, tonal delay, osc to osc fm and a lot of other stuff, which comes with the next free updates, seems to be more cool and useful in our opinion. ;-)

Frankly I don't like how certain synths (Dune2 for example) have global unison and layers mixed up, I find it tedious to program. If you can copy/paste oscs, filters etc between layers and have global controls which may be linked to all layers (i think Rapid now has all that) you can treat layers as inidvidual unison voices which you can finetune as you like and IMO this is actually more flexible and easier to handle than adjusting individual unison voices within one oscillator.
I hate incomplete sentences because they ...

Geodesic Frequencies is now out in the wild :)

It contains 128 patches with over 350 layers in total, with 100MB of unique multisamples and wavetables. All patches are assigned Modulation Wheel, macros, and velocity settings. I put a lot of effort into making sure its sounds as dynamic and lively as possible when playing on a midi keyboard.

What do you think of a unison cutoff spread like in lush 101. [...] the cutoff is being spread differently from among the voices.
To clarify things -
Rapid's unison is per oscillator, not per layer. So you can't really control a filter cutoff spread, because the filter is applied after summation of unison voices. But as mentioned by others, there are various methods to achieve the same sound.

Now, what I could imagine is an additional source parameter that changes its modulation value dependent on the voice (notes) distribution. For example, playing a CMajor chord, the source values would spread like

C = 0.0
E = 0.5
G = 1.0

Now you could use it to modulate the cutoff. Low notes are filtered, while high notes are completely open. Similar to keyfollow, but dependent on your overall notes played.

Interesting. Might add this. If anyone has similar ideas, for modulation sources that are embedded and note dependent. Like Flip Flop, Is Released, or 1/3 Step.
I Will hear them out. I know they can be obscure, but at the same time they are relatively easy to implement and can open a lot of new possibilities.

Yes. I was thinking about how Rapid is different and that it has unison per oscillator. Which is amazing. How I wish other synths were the same (Diversion). It might make more sense at a global level on the main mixing page somewhere to control the cutoff spread in the unison from all the oscillators from each of the layers. It wouldn't make sense for each osc's unison to have its own cutoff spread. Alas, wishful thinking :)

What occurred to me elsewhere is how the random parameter in the oscillator window for waves and wavetables is sort of behaving almost like grains when I load up vocal phrase. Playing really fast notes changes its positions in a way sort of reminiscent of grains (kind of hard to describe). Would be cool if somehow an lfo can be added to the random feature so that it triggers different areas of the sample. Or simpler, a morph slider like how wavetables have, which can simply be assigned an lfo.

Both of these ideas are cool, but honestly secondary to a few of the things you guys are already working on, so keep that up first by all means. I'm quite excited on the prospect of using fm between osc's. That would be great!

I can't really comment on the patches themselves, not my genre, but unlike many other sound designers you surely deserve the asking price, given the amount of effort you have put into that set, also into the multimedia content on your site :tu:
