This month i am embracing the jsfx~ plugins that have just been made available for use on 32 bit systems by Pascal Gauthier. What does this mean?..if you know you’re already like cool if not.
there is a relatively cool DAW called reaper that has a very cool addition to it’s off-center powers and that is a plugin spec that lets users write [in some cases] some very fun plugins for the system
and they are rather “light” where i have got 3 or 4 separate *.jsfx “plugins” working in a pd patch.
I sent a bunch of fun ones for review to Blokas headquarters today but i have a really fun one that is going to be FORUM Only. I am going to start to only release some secret patches for anyone who has the time and inclination for some fun nerdy summer link scavenger huntings. …
Yet I digress… So back to the pd part
This is the spec for the language
here is the plugin Pascal finished -----why is this cool ? previously the FFT stuff DID NOT work on arm processors – now it does --so let the games begin
I am releasing a Formant Instrument that took a while It uses sigmund as well for note approximation and i think it could be fun to use.
It kind of wants you to play the phonemes on a keyboard though – this may become a problem
anyway so Pacal includes a jsxf->pd python script file that builds the pd patch for you and then it’s happy hunting for cool jsfx patches in that community.
i foud this wicked cool link and made three of the instruments on here for Blokas/JULY so keep your eyes peeled for those . BUT
it can suck real easily
I always feel meh after i fool with a Formant instrument so i tried to make one a little off -kilter
Formant is one of the classical electro-acoustic styles we had to master in grad shcool
i did very poorly and just eeked out a lame OM sound with my csound patch of fof synthesis i recall…pitiful
i am making the menu and i would love some BETA testers for FOrmant Synthesists!!!
