mx.synths for monome norns

mx.synths from infinite digits on Vimeo.

"mx.synths is a collection of eclectic polyphonic synths.

each synth has a specific style that can be tweakable via “mod” parameters. their are four mod parameters and they are synth-specific (though usually mods 2 and 3 are frequency and resonance respectively and usually mod 4 is detuning). all other parameters - found in the MX.SYNTHS PSET menu - are shared for each synth. most the parameters are evident (delay send, adsr, etc.). one special parameter is called “sub”. sub is synth specific (and not implemented in every synth) which activates some sound with low-note priority. many of the parameters have lfos."

"synthy is a polyphonic synth composed of two saw-wave oscillators per note which are mildly chorused plus a pulse-wave sub-oscillator that responds with low-note priority as a monophonic bass.

synthy’s mind is its own and obeys an internal stochastic rhythm. synthy may decide to shrink or grow and when it does, it causes a global filter to close (when shrinking) or open (when growing). you can use E3 to manually take control, but after you stop turning E3 the synthy will revert to its own behavior after a certain time (available to change as a setting).

synthy’s body is modeled as six revolute joints which are kinematically re-positioned when moving with E2 or E3. the x- and y- flucuations from the kinematics of the body movement do detuning and tremelo respectively. the degree of modulation is available to change in parameters (“squishy detuning” or 'squishy tremelo').

plug in a midi keyboard to play synthy. if you don’t play any notes, synthy will try to help you out. synthy knows 1,000 chord progressions which can be recalled randomly with K2 and start/stopped with K3."
