Title: Tempest Filter as Sine Synth
Post by: AJCT on December 10, 2021, 08:52:55 AM
Hello All

Iím not sure if I am being daft, but is there a way to make the filter track a keyboard ( to use the filter as a synth)?

I meant ďuse the filter as an oscillatorĒÖ.

Keyboard tracking is on the second page of the filter section.  Otherwise in the Mod Matrix you're looking for Note Number as a source.  That said, I just tried this on my Tempest, and the filter didn't track chromatically very well at all.  Performed a calibration, and it still wasn't tracking well, so... I don't know.  I haven't used the Tempest in a while, but I thought the filter tracked better than what I'm hearing here.  Maybe it never did.  I can't recall.

Cheers!

I found the tracking to be sketchy. Itís supposed to work, but as it moves between the different voices it definitely has issues. Your best bet is to use the couple of sine waves offered up in the digital osc section. They sound good and are very reliable. Iíve used these for creating self resonating drum sounds (to simulate my Multicassa) and was very pleased.

I'm relieved to hear that it's not just my Tempest on which the filter is not tracking well.  Thanks for confirming that, Stoss.  And here I was just about to watch your latest Medusa video on YouTube.  I hope this finds you well.  Cheers!

I donít know why, but now Iím intrigued by this issue. For some reason I want to voluntarily jump in and dissect whatís going on. I assume it has everything to do with kickin it old skool here with JtS. Happy new year!  8)
