Polymoog Resonator

Here's a patch I was sent a while back by jhulk. It's based on the Resonator section of a Polymoog...

As you can see, the patch has been created inside a CLM module and because it's a filter circuit jhulk has locked it to 1DSP so as to keep latencies in check.

While the CLM can be saved as a new module it is unfortunately rather bulky and this circuit weighs in at approximately 1.7MB in comparison to other much leaner BC Modular modules. Also, because the whole circuit has been locked to 1DSP it can only handle 4voices if you were to use it polyphonically.

However, since this patch was built entirely using BC Modular modules it wasn't too difficult for me to recreate as an optimized BC Modular module complete with popup control panel...


This module weighs in at 53KB and can handle 14 voices of polyphony :)

Good job.

I just want to point out that creating a modular with "sdk" capabilities in my view defeats the purpose of the modular which is user friendlyness and performance. A developer who wants (i'm answering jhulk post at planetz here) to "develop" can take his work seriously and invest at a "sdk entry" hardware. He will benefit himself absolutely.

I don't want to say anything negative, its a great and big work, respect, but that's my opinion. It's better to orrient to more performance like features than to sdk feautures. SDK is there for all. Modular design and synthesis is a different philosophy.

Simon, you guys are quickly competing with all of my analog modules! This is actually fun...since I have direct comparisons, and use cases, for scope vs. analog :)

(the module I have in question is a DIY triple resonator, based on the Korg PS3100.)

I've always liked the look of the MAM RS3 and heard nothing but good things about it.

jhulk sent me a PS3100 patch a while back so that one is definitely on its way :)

im also doing the moog modular 914 module but the volumes will be vc controlled

there are 12 resonators 12db and a lowpass and hipass 24db

i copied yusynths design as he added the all odd and even outputs

which can make very different sounds
