Finger Picked Acoustic Guitar, Flageolets and a Psychedelic FX Guitar all in one instrument. All instruments have been recorded 4 times and sampled round robin. The Modest Guitar is designed to sound warm and organic. There are also some decent guitar player noises on the flageolets which can create an additional pleasant atmosphere. Read more »
In the last article we’ve learned a basic round robin function via groups. Now we create a more complex round robin application. A simple guitar engine, containing 3 different instruments (acoustic guitar, flageolett & fx guitar). They can be activated via special instrument buttons. So this time we nee to create a matrix that only the activated instrument groups are played (containing 4 round robin groups for each instrument)
With samplers (or other software instruments) round robin basically means sound variations. Imagine you are picking a guitar! Your single picks will never sound the same since you always pick the strings slightly different. We can simulate that “humanization” by simply randomly varying between a few sound variations which we all have to recorded of course. So each time you hit a key on your keyboard another sound variation is played. Thereby the same variation shall not be played twice one after another.
The set_engine_par() command is used to control or set almost any engine parameters like volume, pan, tune, fx, lfo’s, envelopes and more. It is mostly used in combination with the on ui_control callback whenever we use custom knobs or buttons to control any engine parameter. Read more »
