KVR Developer Challenge 2018 entry.

Inspire CC is a stereo or multi out sample based synth with four channels, each having its own sound source, controls and options. Although designed primarily to produce rich pads Inspire CC is capable of shorter sounds such as bass and other hard attack sounds.

The Dome randomises all four channels simultaneously or specific parts of each channel. Apart from the Domes centre it has intentionally been left unstated what other areas randomise to introduce absolute chance and maybe inspire new musical pieces as a result - see the general help picture. Obviously through trial and error it can be discovered what each part of the Dome randomises, if that is so desired.

The random sweep generators (RSG) for each of the four channels create sweeps of varying speed and tonality. The master random sweep generators do exactly the same as the RSGs but for all four channels simultaneously, creating different sweeps for each channel. The generated sweeps can be so subtle as to be almost imperceptible, powerfully dramatic or anywhere between the two. There are also sweep templates to aid the creation of custom sweeps. Sweeps can be turned off for each channel by disabling the filter envelope resulting in a regular low/high pass filter.

Using only the Dome and the random sweep generators it's quick and easy to create useful presets for Inspire CC.

Right click anything to check for available MIDI control.

Automation is available for all parameters that make creative sense to have it.

On interface help.

There are more preset banks other than the default.

Why 32-bit VST only? Many third party modules for SynthEdit were used to create Inspire CC and, unfortunately, there are no 64-bit versions of the modules.

NOTE: Don't switch from Poly to Mono mode or change any transpose settings during play or hanging notes may result (this isn't a bug).

Wicked atmospheric sound generator.

Sounds really good.

Super deep possibilities.

Tested in Bitwig which accepts 32-bit plugins without bridging efforts. I love randomise options.

Pros:

Good basic pad sounds. Fine for ambient music.

Immediate "dope" effect when testing the randomise tricks with Dome for several/all settings and generators for sweeps.

Very nice context help for all the parameters.

Contras:

While the Dome looks "futuristic" the overall gui with different main colors for presets appear a bit oldfashioned to me.

CPU usuage not optimized. Rendering of good results would be recommended.

Hanging MIDI notes.

Randomise of sweeps is good, but the pool of waveforms/samples should be expanded for more different results.

Fazit:

Recommended instrument, when one needs a "Pad trademark" for ambient music projects.

Great sounding pad monster!, but in Cockos Reaper (PC) the Synth's graphic UI goes into the background (gets hidden behind Reaper) when I go to hit record, etc. All my other 32-bit synths always stay in the foreground when attention is not on them anymore, anything I can do on my end? Its an excellent sounding synth, but to have it dissapear everytime its not getting attention is frustrating argh.

Found this in the Reaper user guide>>>

Keeping a Window on Top
The small pin shown on the right of the title bar of most windows (just before the
X) can be used to pin a window to keep it on top. Click on this to toggle its on top
status. When the pin is shown in the down position, the window is locked on top.

Hey thanks for looking that up for me Samplesphere! It worked! I never bothered looking it up myself cause literally every 32-bit bridged plugin in Reaper I've used for the past decade has just automatically stayed on top, this is the first .. but hitting the pin worked .. problem solved! Its really a great quality sounding synth .. now that I can keep it on top I look forward to tweaking some patches .. but your stock patches are sweet. Thanks again man! Will go give this a big vote right now.

Happy I could help out. It could be you accidently clicked the pin after opening Inspire CC.

I hope you find Inspire CC useful.

I don't know if you've checked the other banks of presets or not so I thought I'd mention their existence here.

Hey thanks for mentioning those other banks! I guess eventually I'd have found em .. but now I'm further ahead faster :) Another thing I like is how the UI color changes with every patch .. helps when using small screens like my 9.7" iPad which mirrors my PC's screen remotely via Jump Desktop VPN. Kudos.
