More Cloud generator demo's with FM synthesis!

From Paul Schreiber came the following message:

Here are 2 more Cloud Generators showing features available with the
"Expander Module".


Both demos show how the internal parameters can be modified by the *ROTARY ENCODERS* in real time. So, each 'detect' is a set parameter, and as we are rotating through the sound 'jumps'. This *does not happen* with control voltages, there will be nice smooth transitions (no zippering).

OK, now that we got that out of the way:

Sine 2 operator FM!

SQR bandwidth mod

The first demo is a simpe 2-operator FM patch changing the modulation index (just like a DX-7). The second demo is a square 'cloud' that is having the bandwidth of the noise for the chous/spread being varied.

Currently, there are ~50 different parameters that are under user control. These can be saved as a general "patch". 6 parameters at a time are under the rotary encoders, in 9 'pages'.

Cool stuff again, this is going to be a great module! :-)

Got a chance to talk with Paul and play with the Cloud Generator module today... Can't wait for this thing to be finished so I can add one to my setup. The demo clips are great, but the thing sounds better in person!

great! did you make any pictures of the design, not meaning spy shots, but just a picture of the unit on a test bed, for illustrative purposed would be great to use on my blog :-)

Took a few pics (with Paul's permission) Nothing very special, and only three of them came out at all… not the greatest lighting and a crudly little pocket sized digital cam. If you have an e-mail you would like them sent to I'd be happy to e-mail a copy of the ones that didn't turn out to blury.
