first off, an apology to jupiter8 - when offered a "review posts made while you were posting" i breezed through the last of three
in my enthusiasm to post what i'd found without realising your last post offered the same information. then, my meant-well statement that "even just replying helps" was another thought i had in my head that seems crass in light of the focused replies i had been receiving. i'm sure you managed to figure that out tho.
and now for the next crass part, "has there been any development in the last two years i haven't been paying attention that i'd find interesting?" :rollseyes: my last thoughts on synthesis were multidimensional oscillators. i noted someone had made a freebie physically modeled snare (i managed to fenangle falstad's ideal circular membrane source for partial amplitude so satisfied there) peeping in at some point. i just check dafx and stuff on youtube.
apart from minor details (phase...! dear god...) my motivating thoughts on voice synthesis is as always an architecture to support user voice models, of course the practical reality is that any such act of intended goodwill will never flourish against the weight of commercial interests obscuring it. the paradigm of time intensive sequencing required for voice synthesis is really suited to a younger, more enthusiastic synthesist than i. my new $210 miniature laptop benches 26 times faster than my old nb205.
i'd love to see some public reception of the multidimensional oscillator. i really enjoyed using those because of the extensive timbral variance they offer. old stuff, but to demonstrate, one key held down with a few tempo synced lfos -
off to check the computer music journal link from the other thread. and to see why elan hasn't done anything in years.
you come and go, you come and go. amitabha neither a follower nor a leader be tagore "where roads are made i lose my way" where there is certainty, consideration is absent.
