Bug or not ?
When an oscillator is send to both a bypassed resonator and a bypassed filter module , both modules in parallel .
The output of the filter module is a lot louder compared to the resonator's output .
i think we already had this topic...?
imho not a bug: the resonator is a quite different kind of module which needs a quite different kind of gainstage - i.e.: a lot lower because it's...uhm...a resonator...
whereas a filter can live with a lot hotter gainstage, up to distortion, because it is substractively reducing gain and frequencies...
kind of my personal explanation...

Hi guys, I had the pleasure to be part (amongst others) of the Factory presets design of Plasmonic.
I recently made a FREE bank of 24 presets, see link below.
And I previously published my Decoherence bank, a 105 presets (65 "standard" and 40 MPE), for which you will find a new video here.
Download FREE 24 presets Bank : https://bit.ly/plasmoFREE24
Premium Bank : https://gum.co/decoherence
Some audio demos : https://bit.ly/decoherence
Have fun with Plasmonic ! Philippe

Cool are the free presets in Decoherence too or extras?

kind of interesting:
it's just the oscillators that are different in level
whereas the impulse and noise seem to be the same...

This would make sense , but the volume difference is not there when using the impulse or noise generators .
Like I wrote, it's only with osc A and B

Edit : just saw you noticed it :tu:
Maybe someone can inform Brian

Since I had some days free I played further with Plasmonic (and tried also to finish some presets to be ready finally).
No extern FX again.

Damn. It sounds like a living instrument. Impressive.

Presets to be ready?

They sound tonal, warm and not "harsh atonal distorted" like the above and like your "brass" presets?

You do want to sell them?

How many?

How much?

Set me on the waiting list

This synth always amazes me. Truly special piece of work imho.

I hope I can get something out before Halloween (but as usual not sure if things go wrong).
Now I started to try some of my favourite sounds with Plasmonic, all kind of organ and organ hybrid sounds.
Normally I am never really happy with most synths when it comes to organ sounds (P900 and maybe Repro is an exception here). I would use real samples or other specific physical modelling tools but I really find Plasmonic also is a winner here for me. It feels kind of more organic as in other tools. At least that is what I feel while playing with these sounds.
So as a little example. This here are 4 single sounds and these are all more or less just slightly variations of the first sound in the audio demo. I think especially the second one will be one of my personal favourites and I really need to fine tune this. Beware, no MPE used here just some variations in the velocity. Also again no use of extern FX.
So if you would love some presets to try, what would be the first one(s). I could guess its some of the brass?

So a last one for today...I played a bit with the strings like pad sound and I liked what I got in short time.
Just held some random note/chords here (so think about I am a terrible keyboard player and so it might sound everything much much better in the right hands, then of course there is still another dimension missing if I would add some MPE performances, i own a Seaboard Rise but I rarely use it).
So this is again a single preset, no extern FX.
I wish everyone a nice and chilled day/night :D
