an old project drafted yesterday, to mess around with.
not a finished project re: voices+GUI
(does it sync ok to your host?check instructions re how
to run it, not complicated)

Sounds really good, cpu is up there Santa Claus, I like how patterns are presets.

Code: Select all

This plugin is a-ok

there is a better ninja way to do it.
just found out how ;)

somewhere in doing ZoxDrum an error was introduced,
with the retriggering.
the method is the same here, and i remember really
working at ironing out the problem and making it
run slickly - but it still plays note wrongly on 1st
beat sometimes on the pattern change, playing 1st
step of previous pattern. went off on a tangent
trying to fix that, and never returned to it.

if i can leave out the preset-as-memory pattern thing,
i'll maybe get faster changes ;)

syntheditors may wish to note that this is an example
of 2 patch modules running in one plugin: one for the
patterns/chain, the other for the drum voice parameters.
only thing is, the kit does not change with VST preset
changes.(or did i say that before? :) )

Rock Solid :)

Host Sync is spot on

aside from note being able to implement midi notes for each sound, this plugin kicks ass :)

the Bass drum Especially is 808 Killer :shock: :P

'up there Santa Claus'? i say old chap, do you mean
rather high? or is it a 'gift' (know wot i mean)
bear in mind it is 8 little synths and nothing has been
done to manage polyphony.

thanks for youtubing it :)

just want to *STRESS* that the drum voices are the
standard ones that comes with synthedit -before Jeff
gets back from holiday- and not by me, except for minor
tweaks - a lot to be learnt there -

i *knew* haha MIDI notes would be asked for, but not what
this one is about - recommend TS-808 v2! - and i would have
liked to have worked more on the drum sounds too. i'll see
if i can suss out another trigger mode for ongoing drum seq'r
project. (currently working on different method)

check again for host sync: i think it is late, but it may just
be my machine: tight short dry hardkick running with it on 4/4.
had a problem with this before, and haven't changed anything.

can go *much* further with this :D

here is 'ZoxDrum' again, if you missed it. uses Cassette808 samples
with a similar sequencer:
