Dark Matter should send Midi out anyway even though it’s not designed for it, I haven’t tried it though so I don’t know how well it will work :) But yes it might be a good idea in the future to make a Midi version.
I've found that Dark Matter sends out an interesting amount of Midi, especially if connected to a percussion VSTi, it adds a touch of excitement :wink:

Is it just midi notes or is it CCs as well? I was thinking being able to assign a CC# per lane, but again I haven't even played with it yet so maybe I'm off base.

Just Midi note data I’m afraid, but every Kontakt instrument that creates notes will also be directed to the midi out, as that behaviour is defined by the Kontakt options settings. CC data must be explicitly sent and is not done in any except my Midi plugins.

thanks for reminding me about Fluctuate, I hadn't moved it from my HGsounds(32Bit) to MIDI-plugins folder and therefore forgot it and the great stability (over CCstepper) & probability options :)

Gotcha, well hopefully maybe we'll see a midi version :D

AmuroFord, thanks for joining :)

LempFace. No doubt about it although it will probably be based around 'Emergent Properties' rather than Dark Matter which will be a better candidate.

I have to say, after playing around with these instruments, I love how you've implemented controls for modulation wheel, aftertouch and pitchbend. I was using an MPE keyboard but today I switched to a more conventional keyboard where I can more easily play pitch bend up, or down separately and I'm finding it super musical and intuitive to improvise. Feels like a whole other world of improv potential are opened up aside from all the trigger keys and modulations built it. These are deeply controllable in the best way. So thanks for the thoughtfulness in that area!

And so far, no bugs. Everything works!

Thanks Killmaster :) oh and Paul I’d forgotten about Fluctuate too :)

@astralp I'm struggling w/ Circular, you have some nice sounds in the presets but the majority of the tone seems mostly from the pluck and swell engines. The two main synth engines waves all seem very close (mostly) and any character of changing waveforms seems to be masked by the pluck/swell. Perhaps I'm missing the point?

well there are 127 waves in each bank which are all different. The waves are selected by the Waves Slider Table and each time a new note is progressed it moves to the next one for Synth A and Synth B. When you release all notes it will Reset to the first step.

The Pluck and Swell are there to give some stability amongst the cycling Waveforms as constants, and so those waveforms are selected using the Wave Knobs.

Does that help? I'm not really sure what you mean if not, I've just loaded it up and each waveform is definitely different. Just move the cycle sliders :)

lol, no I didn't. Tatanka did let me know but it's a bit late now so I've added a Bonus Token in it's place. Oh Well :)

Here's a video of 'Emergent Properties' showing polyphonic mode and I've kept it more Ambient as requested. I'm still not quite happy with all of the samples yet.

Dark Matter has a sibling :love: I really enjoyed that video and I can think of quite a few Libraries & VSTis, which would struggle to reach that amount of diversity, in one instance: brilliant :clap:
