just wondering if anyone has a good envelope follower solution…
i’ve been using the Distrho Amplitude Imposer to control the amplitude of a synth, so that it tracks envelopes nicely with my acoustic instrument – it’s ok, but really not very smooth - the resulting sound is kind of jittery or bumpy, like the envelope tracking is jumping around between discrete values or something.
any ideas for a better solution?
@solobasssteve - i feel like this might be something you’ve dealt with??
but I’ve been kind of waiting for some solution that allows midi of 1 plugin to control a parameter of another (beside the silly midi loopback solution). The CV version really would be better, but AFAIK no other plugins in stable yet will take the CV. I should get them on mod though to end the chicken and egg cycle.
@T-Pulse What works for me is to run the signal through
1.Mod Gain - max boost, I think of this as gain stage 1
2. Audio 2 CV with fairly high level, gain stage 2
3. Slew Rate Limiter with attack shorter than release, this a bit like an LPF smoothing the signal
4. CV parameter mod to further boost or invert the signal, gain stage 3
I’ll also experiment with the polarity when mapping - if something doesn’t work I invert it and sometimes it behaves more as expected
It’s also helpful to have the cv signal mapped to parameter you can see so you can see the parameter changes while calibrating the various gain stages.
Would love to be able to save this as Macro of some sort that I could reuse quickly
