Hey, good ear! Yeah, you are right the Paraphrasis mixes the input sound if it is stereo into mono, because the current algorithm can not handle stereo. Sorry for being confused I should have mentioned it somewhere. I am going to update the entry description right now.
Hi, I am using Ableton Live on Mac OS X 10.6.8. which works fine with Au plugins but everytime I drag Paraphrasis onto a MIDI track a dialog box appears saying failed to create the audio unit plugin, this Audio Unit plugin could not be opened.
Anybody having the same issues?
The plugin looks very unique, shame it does not work on my machine.
ADSR implementation would definitely be a good thing ! For workflow sakes its nice to be able to control as much as possible within the plugin itself without having to send to busses or add extra plugin.
first, thank you for the plugin! I have encountered Loris few years ago and wished somebody would make it available in a sampler usable in DAW.
Having used it, I would like to chime in with few suggestions that would make it IMO killer sampler:
volume controlled by velocity, with configurable sensitivity - that would make the sample more playable and expressive.
option to select velocity range where plugin plays and for notes out of range, there would be silence. That would allow stacking number of Paraphrasis plugins, useful for using different samples for different velocities.
ADSR envelope - as others already suggested, that would again allow more playability and expressivity.
sample starting point - waveform would be displayed and sample starting point showed, trimmed sample would then be analyzed by Loris engine, allowing for smoother workflow.
stereo sample support - as it seems that engine is monophonic, how about running two engines in parallel, each for separate channel?
PADSynth support - would it be possible to achieve effect described at http://zynaddsubfx.sourceforge.net/doc/PADsynth/PADsynth.htm by modifying analyzed partials? It could be configurable - amount of detuning, curve controlling how much each partial is detuned, detuning on top or at bottom. That is not mandatory, however it would be so nice to have! Also, partials exciter would be awesome - specifying number of generated partials, odd, evenand their volume curve.
