Hi All,

Really enjoyed experimenting with Whispair, it's a fantastic synth with quite a few neat tricks up its sleeve. Here's my submission for this month, I'd love to keep adding all the patches I've created to it but it would get ridiculous :hihi:

58 instances of Whispair in Ableton Live 11 Suite.

Stock FX: Pedal, Color Limiter, Echo, Hybrid Reverb, Glue Compressor, Auto-Pan, Saturator, Amp, Cabinet, Erosion, Auto Filter, Multiband Compressor, DrumBuss,

3rd party FX: Wider, STFU, Lifeline expanse, Raum, Outer Space, TDR Molotok, NEOLD Big AL, SPL Twin Tube

Initially I thought that GR-8 should have won the KVR developer contest, but after delving deeper into both I disagree with myself and I think Whispair deserved the win. This synth is pretty great.

Hi, I've found what seems a misbehaviour in the Amp EG. To make a long Attack fade-in usable, I have to assign AmpEG to the modulator socket near the velocity, set that modulation to 1 (max), and reduce the main volume to -30 so i can hear the sound fading in, otherwise, the sound is hearable from the first hit.
Note that the EG modulator socket is assigned to ON and full 1.0 modulating.

I was making some patches the other day and noticed with an arp and the amp env modulator set to on and the dial turned anti clockwise sounds like it's a record playing backwards. So I think this is similar to what you're describing. Any application of an envelope negatively on the amp means that the amp has to start at it's full volume and close with the envelope. I haven't tried your trick yet but maybe there's some clashing of control going on.

Hello Folks

Not sure if this is the right place to report a possible bug with WhispAir. I am sure that if it is not someone will direct me to the right place.

I am using Reason 11, by the way. So maybe you can check if the issue exists in other DAWs also.

Oscillator 3 can sync to Osc 1 and Osc 2 and seems to work fine.
However, Osc 2 should be able to sync to Osc 1 and Osc 3, but the sync to Osc 3 does not work for me.
When I sync Osc 2 to Osc 1, works as expected.
Syncing Osc 2 to Osc 3 does nothing.

Thanks.

If Ladies and Gentlemen are just there at this party, then why not?) Getting the synthesizer to talk - I think this has always been one of the elite tasks that command respect. A little easier, a little harder, but always spectacular...
P.S. Comments and downloads disabled? Well... :hihi:

Thanks IV for the reminder. Download now activated.
I was thinking about having comments deactivated ... but whatever ... after taking the blue pill ... activated them again ;-)
