  • Aspiring Deluge owner questions : Vocoder ? Auto-Tune ? Auto-Sample ? Advanced sample navigation ?

    Hey, I hope I can help :)
    1. There's no vocoder. The osc trick is nice but it works different to a vocoder: It just puts out what you put in, but pitched. Note C3 is the base note, so the unaltered input gets put out. If you hold C3 E3 and G3, what you put in will be tuned to a major chord. But keep in mind that you have to have very stable pitch, because
    2. it doesn't have autotune. No plans in that regard are known. The pitch detection feedback doesn't alter the sample content in a way autotune would, it just repitches the whole sample to make it match the normal pitches used in western music.
    3. No auto-sample. I guess you could manually create a bunch of samples, move them into one folder and then make a multisample instrument out of it, but it is far from autosampling and you'd need a computer for moving the files anyway.
    4. There's no limit (that I know of) for depth of folder structure. You can search for samples by typing on the keyboard, but only in the current folder you're in, not the ones deeper down. As far as I know it does accept big SD cards, but I think the performance of scrolling through the files and folders might be a bit slower - I could be wrong though, I haven't tested that.

    I'll be upfront: The deluge is not a good choice for vocal processing, unfortunately. Besides the points already mentioned, it doesn't have a traditional compressor/limiter and eq. I tried some vocal stuff, but the vocals pretty much go through the deluge unaltered. If I were to make a serious song on it, I'd process the vocals on the computer.

    The inputs can easily be split the way you describe it: when choosing the input source, you can select between left, right and stereo.

    If you've already tried the MPC (One? Live?), what were you missing that you hope to find in the deluge? If it is what I think it is, maybe the akai force would be the better choice for you? I think it has pretty much everything you're asking for. ;) (-> example of vocal processing on force)

  • Make your own Wavetables?

    Brilliant starter pack - thank you very much - just starting to scratch the surface.
    As I'm wont to do, I start diving in and say: "But how can I make my own????"
    I don't want to buy Serum so I found this: (Free software!!!!)
    I've done some basic tests and brought some of what it made into works!!!! Some of it sounds squirrelly but I think I haven't set everything up right yet. It seems very easy to use. (Before trying this I tried Audacity and Reason but those don't help make wavetables very easily at need something specific to wavetable drawing and export).
    This WaveEdit also has a page with tons of wavetables - a few of which I've tested and work on Deluge. This is awesome! So many "oscillators" to play with now!

    Here's what the simple but powerful UI looks like:

    @Burtrude you won't get an answer on this because nobody knows :)

    Probably not before Deluge 2 is released.

    with a vengeance this December.

    The world is horrible. It won't stop raining. My coffee machine broke. My dog died. And all the postal services are tied up in impossible knots and are about to be 100 times worse

    ..and now Christmas is going to be the best one ever.

  • June 2021 TV Guide

    Having missed "Deluge Like Bulaw (Part 1)", I have learned that it is an excellent idea to use the "Google Calendar here" link that you provide, @Ian_Jorgensen , to ensure I get a reminder for all Synthstrom.TV webcasts.

    Thank you for providing Synthstrom.TV

  • After my first few days with the Deluge

  • Have Deluge. Making Songs. Now What? (Session 3 - July 18th)

    Thanks a lot, @Ian_Jorgensen ! There was so much helpful information and so many things I would never have guessed or gotten to know any other way. Very valuable insights, thank you for that!
