I've got a wip that I'm having some fun with blasting back to 1992 :) Surge is rather astonishing.
Yes it is :), and that's a terribly cool wip!

Alas, I'm not in such luck. After what I uploaded last month, I temporal shifted into Berlin 20 years later, and this was all that was going on in the streets

You scrambled „20 years later“ with „from the 20s in Berlin“ obviously. You haven‘t been born back then - or have you?

And I didn‘t get the joke with Rypdal, but it was a good reminder to listen to that again for inspiration as well as Mangione - old times heros...

Haha, I don't mean to sound conceited or anything, but I think he was probably just referring to my real name! :lol:

Also, I've been kicking myself all day that I didn't raise Guenon's "High Bar" by a riff on his Tab in the Spacebar. Oh, well, I'll get back to it upon his Return! He won't Escape!

(I spend too much time with my QWERTY!)

I think Guenon's street rave spilled over into my middle school orchestra concert.
HAH! :D

Should probably archive these snippets somewhere, lol.

Haha, to be sure, just "20 years later" from the "Berlin 1974" skit I submitted last month :D

I think I, too, need to drop the explicit years from track names for a while :P

I've been playing around with this synth a bit yesterday. I really like it so far!
Thinking about joining this challenge as well if I can find enough time for it :)

It seems to crash my DAW (Zynewave Podium Free 3.2.1) sometimes:
When I exit the DAW, it sometimes randomly crashes when there are any instances of Surge in the project.
When I delete the last instance of Surge in the project, it crashes every single time (more than 5/5 times so far).

Obviously, these issues are not holding me back in any way so it's no big deal for this challenge :D

Has anyone had any luck at any Karplus-Strong design? It seems resonance doesn't go high enough to get rid of the noise. Running both comb filters and feeding them back into each other somewhat helps, but key tracking the filters goes out of tune across the octaves.
Just a touch of EQ and a tickle of compression

As we found out in another KVR forum the other day, the Clarinet patch is a good example of using physical modeling and tuning using the filter network. The trick is to set the comb filter to "2" and so on. Taking apart that patch may help.

If you get a crash, adding it as an issue on our GitHub and including information like the version of surge (including bittiness and plugin flavor) and the version of the OS you you run can really help us at least remember it is there. (That's not the same as being able to fix it quickly or ever alas; there's lots of hosts which act in lots of different ways).

Glad you are enjoying the synth!

physical modelling with surge is described in pg34 of manual.
