“My first ever release of a VST
effect. Made in Synthmaker v2.0, so, sorry, no Mac
version. Most of the modules are my own (rather
simple) code rather than stock modules. I’ve been
using it a lot and thought I should give something
back to a community that’s given me a lot over the
years.The first knob is called offset and this adds
DC offset to the input signal (the mod LED below
changes the direction of offset). The next knob is
labelled fold and adds some fold back distortion.
The next knobs are sat (saturation), feed (feedback
– the mod LED changes the signal slightly), delay
(for the feedback), HPF (high pass filter), H-REZ
(high pass resonance), LPF (low pass filter), clip
(hard distortion), followed by a dry/wet control and
finally gain (for output). The feedback path
actually goes after the clip module and re-enters
before the fold back distortion stage, so maybe a
future update will change the knob order to reflect
this (it’s like it is for chronological reasons).
Beware that on settings where all settings are high
that you will get proper high squealing feedback.
I’ve kept that as a feature and the tone can be
changed with the delay knob when it appears.
Anyway, I hope someone else finds a
use for it. I’ve used it as an effect for specific
instruments, but also on the master channel (mostly
using the saturation, HPF and LPF modules). Finally,
this has only been tested (successfully) in Orion.
Feedback welcome! ”
