i just realized that the Delly is also capable of additive synthesis. By assigning multiple synth tracks to the same midi controller you can play them simultaneously.
This may be pretty obvious to some of you.
I was trying to replicate a Hammond organ using the eorgan single cycle waveforms from AKWF. That actually worked good enough.
But then i realized i could just as well use five synth tracks (nine sine waves) to emulate the nine drawbars of the b3 organ. Using LFO1 to modulate the pitch of each track and LFO2 to modulate the LPF frequency as well as the pan of each track makes for a good enough Leslie.
Then i assigned the volumes of the individual oscillators to the nine drawbars of my midi controller and the rates of all the LFOs to the same single knob on the controller. Another knob assigned to the reverb of each track.
Turning the knob for the LFOs by hand until you reach the rate that sounds right seems to emulate the acceleration of the Leslie good enough.
I just had a few minutes to experiment with this this morning. But it's a promising sound already.
Dear folks at S⚡nthstrom Audible and in the forum,
I'd just like to say how grateful I am for the Deluge!
It's such a powerful yet intuitive companion in my music making. Whenever I look around for other combinations of electronic instruments and effects, I find myself coming back to the standalone Deluge for its simplicity, deepness and sheer power in features.
And its sound! It has such a wide variety of sounds in it, and always leads me to some wonderful texture that's even better than what I was thinking of. Also, I have compared it to a variety of other synths. And while each synth has its sweet spots that are particularly easy to find on that specific synth, I was so often able to replicate the sound on the Deluge rather quickly. From intricate to phatt...and wow can the Deluge be phatt...and punchy...
Using midi on several synth tracks gives us a whole wonderland of sonic possibilities. And its clever idiosyncrasies allow for so many tricks that make it feel like a real instrument. And sometimes like working with old tape machines...or a modular synth. And it has a wonderful 8x16 screen that deserves much more love than it gets!
Is there room for improvement? Of course! The sky is the limit. And the CPU I can think of a bunch of things...but I know that S⚡nthstrom Audible feel such a passion for their brainchild that I am constantly excited for what it is already and for what it yet is to become!
Thank you all at S⚡nthstrom Audible for this magical instrument!
Yours, Annaluise Blume
