Re: Ideas for new sample libraries

Yeah, I'd better get a move on, I suppose. :D

Re: A draft whitepaper of my parameterization idea

Learn to code FAUST manually. I'm working on that one. I'm used to math functions and functional notation, so I'm actually finding the concept behind FAUST fairly easy to follow. Make it possible to compile FAUST into LV2. This would involve making a new wrapper. I took a look at the various other ...

Re: Ideas for new sample libraries

http://www.sparkbangbuzz.com/flame-amp/flameamp.htm This just opened up a whole new slew of samples I would like to record now. :D Definitely check out the video. That same mad scientist (who, by the way, is Nyle Steiner, inventor of the Steiner Electronic Wind Instrument, or EWI) has a variety of o...

Re: A draft whitepaper of my parameterization idea

We can call it Sylvester, as in Sylvester and Tweety. :D I don't see what's wrong with Sylvestris, though. So far, this whole brainstorm has been rather wild. ;) Anyway, never mind that for now. What's the first thing that needs to happen to implement a visual editor for FAUST? I guess we need to de...

Re: A draft whitepaper of my parameterization idea

I'm tempted to take the piss out of Native Instruments and call it Nuklear, but that's too obvious. :D Well, we keep throwing about words like "atomic" and "element"... How about "Dmitri", after Dmitri Mendeleyev, the inventor of the Periodic Table? Or maybe we can just call it "Atomic". Or "Atomik"...

Re: A draft whitepaper of my parameterization idea

Well, no I'm thinking more in terms of including binary LV2s in an Omnibus synth which then itself gets compiled as an LV2. It's recursive, you see. I think, though, that the LV2 spec can handle that. We're going to need a new name for Omnibus. Back when it was just the name of the routing system, i...

Re: A draft whitepaper of my parameterization idea

Well, the LV2 spec doesn't seem to have anything against an LV2 plug-in hosting further LV2 plugs. That kind of recursive plug-in architecture has always been something of an unreliable hack in the VST world. That way, Omnibus could host LV2 plugs as part of another LV2 plug. See what I'm getting at...

Re: A draft whitepaper of my parameterization idea

Argh... need to get me soaked in FAUST soon so I can discuss that route with more authoritey!! :D Heh, just do what I do and fake it all. Beyond some basic DSP programming, I haven't done anything other than read papers and books and study some math. Up until now, I haven't had a project I really w...

Re: A draft whitepaper of my parameterization idea

Or do we really want to go that route? Would it be possible to build something that is basically a visual programmer for FAUST? That already has all of the good stuff in it. We'd just need to integrate the output of the FAUST and GCC compilers into an Omnibus network in some fashion. On the other ha...

Re: A draft whitepaper of my parameterization idea

Part of the way this would have to work is by allowing recursive embedding of blocks within blocks. To illustrate, at the Elemental level (we can't call it the core level, as that's the name Reaktor uses officially), we have: Adder Mutliplier Subtractor Divider N-Sample Delay Line (where every sampl...
