|Name/Version:||Phase Distortion Synth 1.1|
|Description:||This is my (first, finished) synthesizer. It is a polyphonic wavetable synthesizer using various techniques of phase distortion in a feedback loop. It's got some virtual analog filters and a 5x8 modulation matrix, as well.
To see what each control element does, refer to Live's info view; the device is fully annotated. I've also included a diagram to explain the signal flow. (The sections in the "Oscillator" and "Filter/Pitch" tabs are more or less signal-path-explicit.)
As a starting point, I would suggest turning up the "Post-Filter" knob in the "Phase Feedback" section, then maybe play with the filter settings.
I used various bits and pieces from the gen~ examples included with Max and from the forums. In particular, the filters are not my work but were created by Andrew Simper, the ICST and Dominique Wurtz, and ported to Gen by stkr, Peter McCulloch and Oli Larkin.
The device takes a while to load, especially with greater polyphony. There is, I guess, hope this will change with a future Max update.
The device is free. If you'd like to reward me financially, that would of course be greatly appreciated; you can do so here: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=XNDYJ5LA2PAHY
Version 1.1 contains fixes for dropping audio files to the Phase Transfer and Waveform buffers.
