Re: FR: More Asymmetrical Distortion Options

That Wiard "Waveform City" module looks like a BEAST! 256 available transfer functions - yikes! I didn't run across any MP3's however. I suppose that Wiard doesn't have enough internet bandwidth to host the necessarily huge demo clip. Drawing the transfer function is not as big a deal for me as watc...

Re: FR: More Asymmetrical Distortion Options

A good software example of Waveshaping is Rene Ceballos'/Cakewalk's Z3ta+ synthesizer. I was a (public) Beta tester before the initial release, and still have fun with it today. Z3ta+ has a "Shaper" window where you can apply a good number of algorithms with different intensities to "Vintage" wavefo...

Re: FR: More Asymmetrical Distortion Options

About Drive vs. Level ... When I overdrive a circuit, I need to boost the energy of original signal to bring it up to the level where the clipping starts. I get almost immediately satisfying results this way, BUT, what I've found is that I've fooled myself. What I've really done is to increase the L...

Re: FR: More Asymmetrical Distortion Options

Hi Kasper, (I'm revisiting the KarmaFX board after a week's hiatus.) I'm thrilled that you like the positive/negative/both polarity distortion idea. The Metasonix R-51 does something similar (with real tubes), except (I believe) that it only clips the positive portion of the wave to produce the asym...

FR: More Asymmetrical Distortion Options

Hello Kasper, With more thanks and respect that can possibly be typed on a QWERTY keyboard, please consider the following feature request for Karma FX Synth. I would like to see more asymmetrical clipping options on the Distortion Effect module - similar to but expanding upon Synthesizer.COM's Q130 ...

On my wishlist: a manual for KarmaFX Synth

Now that the holidays are fast approaching, I'm wondering if a KarmaFX Synth manual will appear in my stocking. I've been pretty good this year.

Naming this module a "mixer" is an understatement! It seems more like an multi-purpose "operator" module -- although FM owns the rights to that name.

Is the mixer's PAN modulate-able? (Sorry, had to ask.)

Thanks for a great synth and for a much anticpated update and manual.

Thanks Kasper.

No bug reports, feature requests, how-to questions, host problems, etc. This post is just a heartfelt thank you for your dedication to a wonderful instrument, Kasper. KarmaFX Synth is a joy to patch and to play, and is quickly becoming my go-to VSTi for leads. I'm not looking for anything too comple...

yessir!
I need to unlearn what little I know about Reaktor to make progress in KarmaFX. There are lots of ways of controlling amplitude in Reaktor, including EG's and Gate modules. The latter passes in velocity info. I'll save my confusion for another thread!

... but i'm currently considering doing a sort of "combiner" module (not sure about the name yet) that takes two signals and does operations on them. ring mod, add, subtract, bit manipolation, threshold gating, etc. Bet it could be useful for both sound and control signals. - KarmaFX Hi Kasper. I'm...

No big deal. I use Karma for monphonic leads, so I didn't want to hijack the ADSR polyphonic issue, which has its own merit. I'll just agree with MJOB that the ADSR module needs some attention and keep that little gate switch off in the meantime.

I found the little "gate" switch thing on the Amplifier module, deactivated it, and all is well (so far). I'm happy.

Thanks mjob. I avoided the more recent ADSR thread becasue I wanted to stay away from "the per" voice thing. Visually, the ADSR appears to be behaving correctly, and the Release modifies other destinations, such as the cutoff on a filter, just fine. Karma FX Synth is the best sounding VSTi on my PC,...

Another ADSR observation when modifying an Amplifier. In 0.92b, the A, D, and S stages modify the amplitude as expected, but the R stage does not. The amplitude falls to zero immediately as the key is released regardless of the Release time.
