MadRing is a ring modulator and a tone generator.
Essentialy based on 8 VCO and 2 noises generator,
a large matrix allow many combinations to shape or generate your own sound.

Last addition / fix / modification :
- Automation fix
- Some automation label renamed.
- nanosynth added and complete TONE

COMMON INFORMATION [+]

 

RESYNC :

  • re-synchronise all the oscillators phases
    (automaticly done when changing preset)

LFOs :

  • SPEED : 3 speed mode :
    BPM, BPM Host, Hz (the "hints" on text field indicate time in ms)
  • PHASE : +-90°

NOISE :

  • DNST : Density of grain
  • SMTH : Smooth (none, soft, hard)
  • STEPS : fine to coarse steps

RANDOM :

  • NST : DENSITY or Speed (Hz)
  • MD / PARAM:
  • NOISE / PARAM = smooth
  • S&H / PARAM = smooth
  • SPRING / PARAM = Hz modulated by DNST

TRACKER :

  • Follow the incomming signal
  • Hz / Q / mon : BPF filter
  • ATCK / REL : envelope folower, time setting (ms)
  • TRIM : adjust the output signal

MATRIX :

  • There is a special destination called NODE.
    NODE allow to stack more than one source
    and can be adjusted through the NODE LEVEL.
    Useful to extend the MATRIX capabilities.

VCOs:

  • Hz : 8KHz, can be overiden trough the text field up to 16Khz
  • LEVEL : negative or positive
  • Hz : Frequency global shift
  • % : Frequency global shift
  • SHAPE : 0=sine, CCW=SAW, CW=SQUARE, set harmonics number
  • WIDTH : channels phase shifting

TONE / nanoSynth :
nanoSynth is a very small monophonic synth

  • SHAPE : 0=sine, CCW=SAW, CW=SQUARE
  • MD : MODE : TONE or nanoSynth selection mode
  • TUNE : Following MD, Hz or Octave
  • GLIDE : only available in nanoSynth mode

FILTER:

  • CUT-OFF
  • RESONANCE
  • D/W : DRY / WET, to disable set on left the knob
  • MD : MODE LPF, HPF, BPF
  • dB : 12 or 24

MAIN :

  • NPUT : adjust the external audio signal incomming.
    More than 100% introduce a "special" distorsion.
  • D/W : DRY / WET
  • ON : LED indicator when the VST running
