Thanks for the clarifications. It's all good. Nothing I can't work with for now.FathomSynth wrote:Yes, Version 1.0.15 is the latest.
Correct, there is no authorization screen, very low tech for now, only the version updates require a password, which is just a file unzip password, nothing installed in the plugin itself.
Periodically I check the internet for illegal free versions and so far everyone has been honest, so I prefer to make the purchase as easy as possible for first time buyers.
Actually your two suggestions are really good ones.
1) Yes that is correct, the default modulation type (range) for any new modulator is “multiply” which goes from zero to the current dial value. If you increase the mini-dial mod amount on the right side mod slat it adds to the modulation, rather than raising the minimum. This was a tough decision on my part but an important one so that the max range of the mod amount itself can be modulated in over-all intensity, which is the most common case.
In your case (for now) you want to change the Mod Type on the far right side of the mod slat to “Add” (“+”) and set the dial value to the minimum and then increase the mod amount dial until the max range of the modulation on the dial goes to your desired max.
I admit this is not ideal or convenient in your case, and what is really needed is an additional mod type which is basically multiply with the mod amount dial raising the minimum, it’s an easy change so I will add that in 1.0.16.
2) You are very correct on the ADSR, and others have noted the same thing.
Fathom desperately needs a simple version of the ADSR which just places the A,D,S,R knobs directly on the mod slat for easy editing without using a graphical envelope.
The graphical envelope is a massive over-kill for many simple ADSR situations. I’ve been wanting to do this for ages, but its more work.
I will try to get that in by the end of the year. But right now the MAC release has priority over everything else since it will double sales and help continue the project.
In terms of your current workflow with the graphical ADSR, try just clicking and dragging the last point after the black note-off line way way far to the right. The interface is smart enough to extend the release time in the correct proportion even as you drag way outside the entire gui. It might take a couple drags to get a long release time but that’s what I always do, and it should work reasonably well until I can do the simplified ADSR modulator.
P.S. I just ran through the KVR purchase process using paypal. I’ll place complete instructions on the web site, and update this note with a link.
So far, loving this. It does a lot of stuff for you as far as Note On, Gate, CV, etc, and that's going to take some getting used to after using Modular for so long (I keep thinking I'm missing something when I just pop in an oscillator and it makes a sound lol) but I'll get the hang of it. Funny how simple can mess up your mind when you're so used to connecting EVERYTHING in order to just make a sound. Of course that kind of flexibility allows you to do things that I'm not sure Fathom can do, though I'm sure going to stretch this thing as far as I can take it.
Thanks again for a really fun synth. Best $25 I've spent this year.
