I wanted to do something different, so this track is entirely written in four-four time.

My third OSC entry! This is what I ended up with. Some may have started the month with a plan, however I spent a couple weeks trying to make drum sounds and then let the synth guide me with it's succulent Master SYNC, single knob FM and Ringmod, the OSC Crush with a pixel sized sweet-spot, the all or nothing Chorus effects and otherworldly Delay and Reverb. This synth was a lot of fun to play with. I'm pretty happy with how my percussion sounds turned out, especially the clap which has no external processing!
I also didn't end up using any commercial effects, I was considering using Ozone8 and SlamPro on the master bus, but ended up using Maximus because my laptop CPU was struggling.

One of the devs of ardour wrote me a little script to list all plugins in a session.
  • save below code as "DumpPlugins.lua" in ~/.config/ardour5/scripts/
  • Menu -> Windows -> Scripting
  • select it under "Snippets"
  • click <run>
Image

Code: Select all

ardour { ["type"] = "Snippet", name = "Dump Plugins",
  license     = "MIT",
  author      = "Ardour Team",
}

function factory () return function ()
  local all_plugs = {}

  for r in Session:get_routes ():iter () do
    if r:is_monitor () or r:is_auditioner () then goto nextroute end -- skip special routes
    local i = 0
    while true do
      local proc = r:nth_plugin (i)
      if proc:isnil () then break end
      local pi = proc:to_insert () -- we know it's a plugin-insert (we asked for nth_plugin)
      local pp = pi:plugin (0)
      local id = pp:unique_id()
      local cnt = 0
      if all_plugs[id] then cnt = all_plugs[id]['cnt'] end
      all_plugs[id] = { name = proc:name(), id = pp:unique_id(), cnt = (cnt + 1) }
      i = i + 1
    end
    ::nextroute::
  end

  for k,v in pairs (all_plugs) do
    print (string.format ("%2d * %-30s (%s)", v['cnt'], v['name'], v['id']))
  end

  all_plugs = nil
  collectgarbage ();

end end

Merry christmas and happy new year!

That was a very nice and memorable year, the year I've lost my musical virginity! I want to thank KVR for giving us this opportunity to show your creations (sometimes not the best sounding). Making music for OSC gave me experience, inspiration and motivation, and forced me to learn new ways of doing things when your possibilities are restricted. Right now I have more than 1.000 veiws/plays on my SC page. I think I wouldn't get even half of this spitting my tracks out of nowhere. And perhaps I wouldn't even finish my first track this year.

It was surprisingly pleasing to work with Elek7ro. It is like an examination in the university. No presets, no internal effects, no tricky gimmicks, just a straight virtual analog. "Show us, what you have learned throughout this months of your evening hobby!"

Noisemaker was an option this month because of technical issues with Elek7ro and commertial effects were allowed to use, but I prefered to stay in standard conditions. I do like to try Noisemaker in later OSCs.

I think we don't need a dedicated commertial synth OSCs unless there is a promotion (like MPowerSynth or U-He synths). Just do an Any Synth Challenge more often, at least once or twice a year, so overyone can choose whatever they want to use.

Enjoy my new reece and wobble free submission (or not). And forgive me my long cinematic-wannabe intro...

Been a long time since I last took part in this. But then again I couldn't think of a better way to send off a nasty year.
No commercial effects are used, only freeware and a few CM magware ones. And Diffuse, which I got when it was offered for free for a limited time. Used as a delay on a send track for some spatial niceness.
As it turns out, when the oscs and the main volume are driven to the max plus max filter drive it only takes around !0% ! of drive (DD Overdrive in my case) to achieve a guitar-like sound.

Some Info:

DAW - Zynewave Podium x64 v3.2.1
TAL NoiseMaker instances - x35, all sounds from init (*edit*)

Effects:

Podium native – zPEQ & zReverb

Orilriver
Ambient Reverb

TAL DubIII
HY-Delay3 (free)
Diffuse

IIEQ Pro
reaEQ
SonEQ free

ADT
Ambeo Orbit
DD Autopan

DD Overdrive
Tone2 Warmverb (as reverb only)

Venn Audio Utility for gain staging

reaxcomp
jscompshaper
Analog87 CM-COMP
OTT
Saturation Knob (on the Master around 0.7)
Unlimited
SPAN
mvMeter

So, here it is, hope you'll enjoy it.
Cheers and HNY.

Here's mine:
https://soundcloud.com/taronium/taron-fashion

OSC#118: TAL-Elek7ro

Instances#: 18
DAW: MULab (www.mutools.com)
FX: 2 Band EQ, Mid-Side Processor, delay_cross, Vintage Echo 2, level compressor
3rd Party: Valhalla Vintage Verb, SonEQPro, OuterSpace, Dimension Expander, OTT, The Glue, Limter6, Auburn Sounds Panagement, Occulus Spatializer

I almost forgot to make the track, but luckily remembered today and sort of wrapped it up. I've had plenty of fun with this rather simple synth with mighty UMPF. Missing velocity made it a bit tricky for me for some reason, not to mention the permission to use commercial effects, which is something I haven't done in ages... but I fired up some of the wonderful prices, hehehe, indulged in Valhalla verbs and did a rather...well... atypical kind of track from me. Somehow the image of a fashion show couldn't get out of my mind. :shrugs:

Cheers and HAPPY NEW YEAR to ALL of us! :hug: :party:

My track for OSC118. I used both synths, but no commercial effects... I have enough trouble working out how to mix with the basic DAW fx, let alone confusing my brain with better tools :)
