Presets, params, lock, random and mutate. Wow, thanks so much for putting this together. The two other types are Yellow and Orange for spectral frequencies and magnitudes. Who is online Users browsing this forum: Building groups like this manjal a powerful way to start building your own collection of useful modules that you can reuse over and over again in all sorts of combinations.

Basically any group that has at least one midi input, and at least two audio ouputs qualifies as a voice group. Now, open the panel for the filter and set its type to One-Pole LP. A panel will appear with all manner of different options.

Chapter 1. Introduction : Bidule’s Concepts

You might recognise some of them. This is the audio output, then we will use the activity gate from the Amp Env to tell bidule when a voice is playing not the filter, because the filter may finish before the envelope. Do a copy and paste and you should manul almost everything ready to go.

Thank you for taking the time to make this tutorial.

Bidule Tutorial 1 : A Simple Synthesizer

Just to make things clearer, lets bidyle the cutoff frequency control so we dont get confused between this frequency and the other oscillator frequency control. The Note Extractor has 1 input and 4 outputs. Now we are going to use the envelope to control the filter cutoff of each note as it plays. Now connect the output of the oscillator to the mixer. This will require a little bit of maths, but its nothing scary, just multiplication. Post Tue Jul 10, 5: There is still no sound because the oscillator is running with zero amplitude.


I have been using reaktor for some time and have not found any tutorials as well written as this one.

Now try playing your midi keyboard…hmm, well it works but it manula kind of out of tune. You should now have something like this for the oscillator section: It should now look a bit like this. Hopefully you will know what your audio device is and can choose the right one. You can download this layout here PolySynth.

THe Best tutorial I found on the subbject.

Layer 1 will respond to MIDI channel 1 and output to audio out 1, Layer 2 will respond to channel 2 bixule send to audio out 2, and Layer 3 will respond to channel 3 and output to audio out 3.

On windows direct sound is preferable to MME.

Great stuff to work thru when trying out the demo. Add them in this order: It should now look a bit like this Now we can test that the audio is working.

Its in the same group in the palette as variable so add one to the canvas. Add this to the canvas. You should end up with something looking like this:. Heres a complete picture of the current setup Now before we add the envelope we need to consider how we can control the start and stopping of the sound.

Currently we are using a constant to control the amplitude of the oscillator, but we wont use this anymore so go ahead and delete it. I will change the text to make both of these points much more understandable. So navigate your way there and add the Note Extractor to the canvas. Bidule makes this really easy, but we have to do a little bit of preparation first. Check your multitimbral VSTi’s manual for information on how to configure this specifically.


Now connect the output of this block to the first oscillator input. The great thing about this extractor is that it converts midi note messages into Hz frequencies, ready to control the oscillator, and it converts midi velocities into the amplitude range 0 — 1 that also can control the oscillator.

Lets put minimum to 50 and maximum to You should see all your modules again on screen, also notice at the bottom the display says. Now you can enjoy sequencing multiple tracks to the same VST and send their outputs to individual mix tracks. If you are already used to how synthesizers work then you will no doubt realise that these two signals are perfect for controlling the envelopes we will be using to shape the sound.

You can download this layout here Simple Synth. Next we wire it up to the mixer, it always wise mnual use a mixer before the sound card so you can adjust the volume easily. I’ll drag it into the rack while holding shift so we don’t get a mankal channel, and then I’ll right click on the rack unit and delete the associated track that was created as we won’t need it.

This layout is here MonoSynth. That’s all we need for the VST part, now lets add 3 mix channels to the rack.
