Device Overview

Name/Version: BankOSCmr 0.01
Author: synthesizerwriter  
Description: BankOSCmr0v01 is a Sound Generator, not a synth, and the MIDI input is just about as limited as it is possible to be. It provides 32 sine-wave oscillators simultaneously...

The display shows the 32 oscillators from left to right, and each vertical shows the frequency as an orange square and associated bar underneath, and shows the amplitude (the volume...) as a purple square and associated bar underneath. Low frequencies and amplitudes are at the bottom, and high frequencies and amplitudes are at the top.

To control the oscillators, the controls on the left affect:
- the Rate at which the update sweeps across the oscillators from left to right
- the High and Low extremes of the frequencies of the oscillators
- the Time for the frequencies and amplitudes to change to the new values as it sweeps across...
- a 'New' button to generate a new set of random values for frequency and amplitude (If you send a MIDI note to this device when the Rate is set to the slowest time (...all the way clock-wise: 'Run' changes to 'Stop'), then this triggers the 'New' button.)

On the right, there is a simple state-variable filter that provides low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and notch transfer functions, and has Frequency and Q controls, and finally an Output control.

BankOSCmr0v01 can produce a range of not-so-ordinary sounds, and is the first draft of one of my irregular explorations into sound generation.

Very Cool! Looking forward to working with it.

This is very cool. Thanks very much! However, for me it crashes live after a few minutes. I am on Live 10. not a criticism just for your info.
Thanks very much

@zenke. Thanks for the bug report. I've not had any crashes in Live 10 so far, and I'm quite a long way towards finalising the next version release candidate, so there's a lot of hours of continuous use after making the video and the audio demos. I will go back to 0v01 and see if I can find anything. You say it crashes Live? - after how long and are there any specific actions that trigger it?
