    Hi everyone!

    Plain and simple:

    My first few minutes with MT3: microtonic-3-test by bronto-scorpio

    And some crazy things happen if you combine MT3 with some plugins of one of my other favourite plugin developers:
    microtonic-vs-freqecho-and by bronto-scorpio

    Would be nice to hear what you guys squeeze out of MT3 :)

    Cheers

    Yeah! Pretty slick. Thanks for sharing.

  • Users avatarMagnus Lidström

    Btw, I found this the other day collecting dust on my drive. Possibly, this was the first time I gave MicroTonic a spin myself. Some eight years ago.

    Hi guys! still learning about all the wonderful things you can do with this great software, but this song was made using microtonic.

    Here is my first MicroTonic experiment. Also features patterns from the Patternarium as well as Synplant for the synth tracks.

    This was all microtonic and synplant. I just wanted to try them out together, so I made this simple little groove.

    Sweet. I like the "body" you have given to µTonic here. What is it? Just good eq'ing, compression & reverb?

    Hmm, well I know that I used "OldTimer ME" compressor by PSP Audio (get it now it's $79 till end of the month) which allows compression of Mid or Side aspects of the stereo field. I compressed the Mid channel of the microtonic, then went into a vintage warmer by PSP Audioware, and the EQ was Aether. I believe Aether added a lot to the body / sound of uTonic. The PSP plugins are great too. Oh yeah, I used their StereoPack as well on the uTonic track :)

    I'm very glad that you liked the sound of the uTonic track.

    I think one of the keys to getting microtonic to cut through a mix is mid/side eq. It really seems to put everything where it needs to be. Boost only "mid" information eq on the low end, rolloff all "side" low end. On the highs use the "side" info and boost to taste. Play around with mid/side in the midrange. This can really make a big difference, at least to me.

    Hopefully these little tips will help others too.

    Great software guys! Sonic Charge has always been top notch in my book! :)

    An experiment (as usual) in using limited instruments - in this case, microTonic and Synplant.

    I started with a Patternarium patch as a "seed". The plan was for something far more improvisational and experimental (fail). 1 of 1 for now, but maybe I'll do more.

    DAW: Live
    1 instance of MicroTonic
    7 instances of Synplant
    Delay
    ValhallaRoom verb on a single send. EQ, sat, compression, and of course Ozone for extra crispiness :D

    Enjoy! (I hope)

    Just purchased Bitspeak yesterday after thinking about it for almost 2 years. I love the work Sonic Charge. I remember I first found the work of Magnus when I was looking up the designer of the Malström synth back when I used to use Reason. I stumbled across the Sonic Charge website. Synplant was just being released. I demoed it, loved it, and quickly bought it along withµTonic.

    All that to say. Bitspeek is another marvel of Magnus and crew. I don't know why I waited so long.
    Here is my first time using Bitspeak.

    All sounds, save the drums, are made with a voicemail processed with bitspeak. The drums are sampled from my old Gameboy. When I don't have a lot of time for music this is how I keep my brain engaged.

    here is a sound demo i´d like to share with you. 30 minutes crazy sounds and experimental noises, ,

    produced with a SYNPLANT and a MICROTONIC device only!

    no other instruments, no FX. 100% PURE SONIC CHARGE Sound!

    it was a spontaneous recorded jam session i made with a friend.

    so don´t bother with the (missing) arrangement or some other mistakes& glitches.

    ( hi-fideliy sound enthusiast , be warned hehe! :D) I don´t know how to describe the musical style ,it´s some kind of strange-beepy-noisy -live techno with a huge portion randomness :P... the wide range of sounds you can achieve with Microtonic & Synplant only (!) is just amazing, the recording is quite old, i allready posted the track a while ago but as all the links in my post were broken i thought i´ll re-upload it here in the "show us your Sonic Chartge creations" forum

    . Enjoy it!

    Hey guys, Microtonic is my absolutely favorite plugin in the entire world!! I made this after the second day of ownership, not sure exactly what genre it is, but it's got sappy brake-up-woe-is-me vocals, and an accidental saxaphone patch on a Minibrute. :) I tried to get the percussion fairly "natural" sounding which was much easier than I first anticipated. Obviously it's all from Microtonic!

  • Users avatar00.1

    Sorry, nothing new to post yet. I just wanted to drop a quick compliment on the low cpu.

    That probably is one of the greatest attributes imo. Great job on balancing the quality and versatily of sound with low cpu.

    I tend to really get into synthesizing each sound and its like deep sea diving. Low cpu = more air = more time to explore, as opposed to cpu hungry vst's which not only sucks the life out my cpu but any motivation to move forward.

    I'm slowly moving to a sonic charge based musical environment because of it. And getting the sounds I want out of it is pretty damm quick too.

    Thanks! Makes me glad to hear someone is appreciating the stupendous amount of time I plow into optimizing my algorithms. Sometimes I wonder if it is worthwhile, but hey, I am a perfectionist. It's not an option not to optimize. :)

  • Users avatarJeremy

    Ok first off a big huge massive overwhelming thank you to Magnus and Erik!! Nobody really listens to my music and so to even give it the time of day, and much less a compliment coming from the creator of two of my all time favorite instruments (maelstrom + microtonic) is just insane!! Thank you guys again 1000x!!

    Here's another new one, 100% MT on the drums. Once again sappy vocals. This time I used it in a sort of "my own personal robot drummer" role. Meaning, it's basically just a slightly edited preset (which speaks to the quality of the presets!!) and the entire song is sequenced from the pattern blocks in MT itself. No sequencing in the DAW environment outside of volume automation. Once again it fit the song perfectly and kept me inspired while writing parts on top of it and that is huge to me. To have amazing presets like that means I can just put my hands on the keyboard and start playing and get my idea out before it flies off into creative outer space, that's tremendous!

    Here it is:

    burnt by aktuator

    Oh and let me also hugely second the STUPID low cpu usage of this thing. It's criminal that it should take so little given the power of the sound itself. Just remarkable especially in the face of it's "peers" (though it basically has none).

    6 days until I get Synplant! Yay! (yeah, I'm poor)

    Also trying to pull off an entire MT + vox only song, but it's taking a lot of work, so that will come in a bit! :)

    Hi my name is Dan Baber,

    I have been using microtonic since it was first introduced to me by a good friend and production partner around 2007 and I have been using it exclusively for all my percussion etc since. I love how intuitive the program is and how literally within a minute or two I can have a completely original beat happening with original bespoke patches etc.

    I don't know if it would be possible to improve on this software and I rave about it to anyone who will listen.

    The following link is to a track due to be released on Inlab Recordings that is almost entirely microtonic (In Ableton). Everything other than the strings kick and bassline was made with microtonic + effects.

    Thanks for such a brilliant piece of software!!!!

    Cheers,

    Hey Jeremy,

    wonderful song "Powerless", but it isn't Powerless.

    Great stuff. Love it.

    All the years I worked with "Big expensive VST's" and now I have to find this great SW.

    Incredible !

    I love the way I can work with. Everything with a great sound and a different but simple way to find new sounds.

    Please keep it up- Lovely crazy Sonic-Team pls go ahead.

    I am controlling pitch 100% via daw automation which gets rid of the glitchiness from the bitspeek pitch tracking and creates a clean sound. Also, I clean up the input audio with a noise gate.

    This track is made for the KVR One Synth Challenge #98 Any Synth. It's actually the 100th edition of this challenge (because of 2 extra special editions), and one could choose whatever synth he wanted for this round.

    So, just to show everybody my love for Sonic Charge, I didn't choose my Diva, Bazille, Hive, ACE or DUNE 2, and went with Synplant. Also used Echobode a bit.

    Wish I had more time to fine-tune things, but in the end this is what I submitted.

    Enjoy!

    Hi,
    all sounds comes from MT3 nothing extra (except reverb & delay comp. etc. fxes.)
    trying to create kind a random groove generator
    via mixing randomly MT3 presets and channels in hand made matrix ..
    not bad i guess :)
    i am still wishing an extensive preset manager with
    Midi Bank MSB LSB & Program Change support
    something like UHE MFM2 has.. which is great imho.
    anyway..
