This is Paul Giblock. I tried posting to the mailing list on several occasions and for some reason none of my messages ever went through. Therefore, I am now using my school email address.
I can sum up all my previous messages with this:
The TB303 Plugin is almost complete. It features an authentic TB303 sound. I just want to add accent and slide features to it before releasing. Then I will probably add distortion.
Second, I plan to work on a Juno-106 plugin. It is based around older UltraMasters source which features a modular component design (An oscillator, a low pass filter, a HPF, an envelope, Chrous, Delay, Mixer, etc..). Therefore, I can make a general purpose generator instead of one stuck to the Juno-106 configuration. So, here are a few questions for those concerned:
- Do you think that being able to engineer an instrument is useful, or
should it just feature a Juno-like standard layout
- If It should be configurable, should there be a separate tool that
exports instrument files? This will make the plugin lighter. Each
instrument layout can load its own presets..
- Should the instrument designer be built into the plugin?
- Finally, should each component (oscillator, envelope, etc.) be its
own dynamic library to allow developers to quickly design new
instruments? This can, of course, be combined with the above
I am asking because I hate being in a black box.
