Hey Everyone,

This month's entry. A one track composition.

I initially wanted to add more than the four voices that Hy-Poly allowed, but I was pleasantly surprised with the way that Hy-Poly chose voices and went with it. I think its top two and bottom two. Anyways, it created some melodies that I couldn't imagine myself, which I thought was neat.

Studio One 4
1 Hy-Poly
1 Pro EQ
1 Compressor

On FX bus:

Added on the Master bus...
1 Pro eq
1 multiband dynamics
1 limiter pre
1 limiter post

Thanks for listening!

I am not sure if this is a good idea, but Hy-Poly inspired me to something very minimal... ... r-hy-drone
Played in one go, a single sound, I had to use 6 instances to be able to play it in MPE mode. Only Hy-Poly fx used.
I used a special tuning based on prime number overtones. I achieved that with a Max patch that would modify the Midi pitch bend accordingly...
DAW was Bitwig...

I must say this is a really good sounding free synth...

Hiya, so after some back and forth Tadashi was able to give a version that eliminated the phantom CPU issues I was having (thank you very much for that, sir!). So I thought it would be only fair to actually finish a track. I present to you, with much grandeur and fanfare, the amazing, most bestist thing ever to grace the interwebs, or something... ! - wHY?

HY-Poly Free 1.0.75: ~ 60 instances

Bitwig 3.2.6 + plugins:
Tool (finally has -inf!)
Blur (for delay)
Peak Limiter

Other plugins:
Xfer OTT
Valhalla Supermassive
Dragonfly Reverb Hall & Room
TDR Nova
vladg Limter no6
VennAudio FreeClip

+1 for the @ontrackp commercial plugin vote! :love:

What a nice synth HY-Poly ended up. Modulation is quite easy to do. I would suggest @Tadashi if you're reading this: get rid of the popup window and just open the editor in the lower section, it would be much better. I had to keep moving the popup windows out of the way, quite irritating. Otherwise, the plugin is design in quite a pleasant way, thank you for the free version!

Don't like the synth. Sorry. I tried.

Making speech though was kind of cool.

So for your amusement here is the fragment I did before I lost inspiration and interest. ... 3-fragment

Stay healthy you all!
