Ability to add samples to Microtonic 4

    Any thoughts to adding the ability to add your own samples to microtonic, as so to mix samples and synthesis?

  • reddog

    I thought the whole idea of MicroTonic was that it was synthesis based program.

    In my opinion, better not.

    1) It would have been interesting, if would be the presence of inтernal complex effect processing \ transformation of the original osc signal.
    2) In addition, there is MIDI outputs that can be assigned to the sampler and synchronously mixing wave sample and u-tonic, each channel individually.

    Ie at least this moments negate this idea.

    Good idea but my answer is NO to that!
    I want keep microtonic simple as it is.

    i just want to have a 64bit version asap!

    I agree.All Microtonic needs is 64bit version.

    I have good news then: 3.1 is ready for beta as soon as we have sorted out the new installers and "BetaTracker" for 10.8.

    Great news indeed.
    Thank you,really looking forward to the update.

    yes!

    Sorry pretty new to Microtonic..............Is it possible to add my own sound banks of hats snares etc etc so they will then be converted to the correct format and then playable through Microtonic?

    You are talking about importing sample files, right? Microtonic is 100% synthetic. It generates all sounds using "virtual analog" oscillators and filters. No sample playback at all. So loading samples into it is simply not possible. Sorry.

    I suppose 2 nice features would be an algorithm which analyses a sample and then re-creates it as a synth and another algorithm which analyses drumloop samples and converts it to a Microtonic Preset. This could be done as a separate plugin for creating MicroTonic patches. That way we could convert sound-samples to clean synth patches. A batch processor for this would be a God-send but I imagine it would probably not be too easy to code. Although this sounds impossible (or unlikely at least), I see that the ABL3 synth can do this for patterns. It analyses a sample loop for individual notes, note pitch, note length, note slides, note velocity (accent). It's very quick and fairly accurate - even when it gets it wrong, it still generates something unique and usable. It's meant for translating recordings of original 303 bassline loops but you can feed it drum loops or vocals and it will still work - even if they are not cued/looped/normalised, lol. I've made hundreds of decent presets this way. It's not perfect all the time but it does open up another angle to quickly add new synthesized sounds and patterns and it would also satisfy those who want to import their own sounds without taking away from the ethos of Tonic or bloating/complicating it with samples.

    Vegan Pete: totally cool idea! I also once thought: "can't there be some kind of audio-to-patch mechanic". I also would love this idea / feature. (=
