Golden BPF-FM for Reaktor (bandpass Filtered FM)

a picture of the scope on the ensemble's interface

Hello all, I’m back!  Here is a new Reaktor patch that Iv’e been using lately.  It is a 4 oscillator FM synth, with bandpass-filtered modulators (with noise), a comprehensive modulation section, and a filter after the four oscillators.  That may sound fairly simple or boring, but there are a lot of options in this one.  I’ve always loved FM and the thought occurred to me recently to try using bandpass filtered modulators to get a unique sound.   And then, yes, you can modulate the modulators.  And modulate the modulators with the carrier.  And then modulate the carrier.  And modulate the filter with the modulation, that modulates the modulator oscillator.  Just kidding, that last sentence was just bullshit.

Here is the file :  Golden Master Reaktor Bandpass Filter FM Ensemble

multiple different filter types for the synth: pro-52, ladder, diode, and state variable.

Right now I’m using this synth in a live set I’m working on that I’ll be playing at The Upstairs here in Belltown in Seattle.  I have a few examples, of improvisations I’ve done while working on the set (though I consider this music to be Work-In-Progress):

The synth is used for the Pad sound in this track (a cover of “assassin with son” from the shogun assassin soundtrack): Assassin with son MP3 download

The main melody in this track is the BPF-FM synth (the bass is “grobian”). Metacarpal Mp3 Download

Here is a demo track I made to demonstrate the noisy sound design possibilities of the synth:  BPF-FM noise demo MP3

    Hey I’m glad you’re back. I am really thankful for your just intonation macros. I did a core remix of your vosim patch. when you play two notes at once you can really simulate the sound of water dripping from your into the ceramic after you turn the shower off.
