there are two good things (unique in freeware?) about perfecto:

the oscs cross-modulate each other. osc A frequency- or phase- modulates B and vice-versa.

the pitch can be forced to user-scale. with lfos this can create arp effects.


there are two bad things about perfecto:

frequency modulation uses a LOT of cpu.

the oscs aren't anti-aliased or have other 'improvements' you generally don't hear about as an end-user. the plus side of this is they are quite responsive to modulation.


i made this for analog bleeps and the pitch function is a bonus from hyperion's development (hyperion is an algorithmic midi vsti.. more info in my forum here).


it's late, there are only 8 patches. if you have a small processor don't start your host in poly mode ;)

here's a quick mp3 run if you like that sort of thing -

and yes, someday there will be other synths with the tuning function but with low cpu oscs ;)

Hi Xoxos
It is a simple and nice looking GUI.
i can't try it right now, but i will as soon as i can.

...but...
with such a name, i was expecting some hard-rock orientated vsti !
:hihi:

So we know who would win dc08 again huh :D..

Oscils cooperating? Useful! Better pitch ctrl.. Bonus.
Always welcome those shimering showers ;)!

edit:

Is that hyperion doig the footwork in the audio demo?

stay juicy!

the mp3 is a one note wonder - pitch modulation is created by scaling one lfo.

towards the end of the demo i switch to poly mode.

if you like arps.. try it.. don't put it in the pile, try it now ;)

Lovely! BTW :D

Thanks again xoxos!

Looks lovely :)

motherf**ker !
You can't always get what you waaaant...

a lovely exercise- so much possibility with the routings/fm/pm :) The semitone/arp scale is wonderful, too. I am grateful to have a crack at this one: you could market it.

-and now onto the FR :hihi:

If I program a simple 2osc bass patch, all mod off, the attack noticeably clicks. Have I patched it wrong?
Is the waveform supposed to display? (saw/sine, etc.)
..what goes around comes around..

I'm always keen to try out another xoxos creation! thanks!

I feel I must point out, though, that one of your competitors in the DC07 provided an entry that uses cross-modulation of two oscs...

no waveform display, if you hover over the 'wave' knobs a popup box lists the contours.

everything on the synth has 'absolute' values, eg. the smallest attack setting is 0 samples, so you will produce a dc pop unless you sync both oscs to key and use 0 (or 180) phase. it may also click with pitch transitions in legato mode unless you use a small amount of porta.

for 'normal' patches, use a tiny bit of portamento and soften the attack; this will approximate the lowest settings on many other synths. so here.. be conscious of the 'absolute' and 'unimproved' aspects..

the scale stuff will probably be applied to your patches for isnonu for that trance synth you mentioned some time back.. i have some other things to do in the meantime :)

Sounds really cool, I like the lfo pitch melodies. Good thing there's some presets, I have no idea how any of your plugs work.

I have like 4 or 5 of your new midi plugs, and I'm a preset tweaker.
