round-robin instrument number?

Post by leondustar »

Hi, before I post a feature-request, I just wanted to double check in here:

is it possible to roundrobin an instrument?

Example: I have 3 generators (01, 02, 03) and one multisynth (04):

Code: Select all

c-3 04 -----    // i want multisynth to sent this note to generator 01
c-3 04 -----    // i want multisynth to sent this note to generator 02
c-3 04 -----    // i want multisynth to sent this note to generator 03
I know you can create note-ranges on a multisynth (or split by velocity), but the point here is that I'd really like to not manually program the roundrobin in the pattern editor.
Ideally I could even change the roundrobin range from 1-3 to 1-5 (basically roundrobin-by-wiring up extra machines).
I was thinking about changing the input-param on a metamodule, and I have had limited succes with an arpeggiator metamodule (automating the phase-slider).
However, I was curious about more optimal solutions...anyone?

If not, Im going to suggest this effect feature request:

Code: Select all

28 - take a note from line XXYY on track 0;
29 - take a random note from the range of lines XX..YY (inclusive) on track 0;
2A - roundrobin the instrument value between number 0000 to XXYY                   <---------------------

Kinda possible but not exactly. You may use the cyclic shift effect to play note in different pitch. Then use multisynth to filter out some of notes to be used for trigger the specific voice of the main synth. However, this approach do not support note skip/steal and chord, so there is not much application for it.

I really hope round robin is going to be implemented too! Unlike the current LiFo behavior which is good for bass + lead solo, round robin gives better release for each voice. In addition, that would save a lot of time to assign each voice manually. (although assigning voice manually is the most optimized approach)
I was stressed out by my own matter, but I am finally back on the SunVox discord.

I was playing with your patch, and it also suddenly reminded me of the 'random' pattern effects (like 29 e.g.):

Both approaches (even combined) would allow setting up a rowpool of (non)roundrobin'ed notes in track 0 (with velocity 0).
Then on the other tracks you'd basically randomly pull notes (maybe chords?) from track 0.
