Gotharman's PolySpaze
4 voice polyphonic/multi-timbral synthesizer/sampler with analog filters, effects and sequencer
Details:
Oscillators/Samplers: 
Each voice of PolySpaze has 2 oscillators. 8 oscillators in total.
 
Oscillator 1 
For oscillator 1, oscillator or sample playback mode is selectable. 
In oscillator mode it generates a waveform that is morphable between sine, triangle, saw, pulse and feedback waves. Pulse width are adjustable for all waveform types. Oscillator 1 outputs both an audio range signal and a low frequency version of this at the same time, so the oscillators functions both as audio range sound and low frequency modulation, at the same time.

Oscillator 2 can frequency modulate Oscillator 1 (FM). Pitch, PW, wave and FM amount can be modulated. 
In sampler mode it plays back any of the 255 storable samplings, and any of the 64 possible chop samplings within a sampling. Pitch, start point and length can be adjusted and modulated. Samples are chromatically tuned, and has a pitch range of 4 octaves above and 5 octaves below the original sample pitch. Loop mode can be set to Off, On or Free. In Free mode the sampling is constantly playing back, and is never re-trigged. Like in oscillator mode, the samples also outputs a low frequency version of itself, so samples can be used as low frequency modulation. 

The samplers can load and playback Little deFormer samples and use the chop points. It is also possible to create chop points in the PolySpaze sample editor, and use these, and to load all samples from a directory as chops within a sampling, via USB. Chops can be detected by level peaks or by single wavecycles. Single wavecycle chops are an easy way to make loops. 
Both oscillators and samplers has a portamento control.

Oscillator 2 
Oscillator 2 generates a waveform that is switchable between sine, triangle, saw, square, noise, input L and input R. Pulse width are adjustable for triangle, saw and square, but sounds different from oscillator 1, to have a wider sound range. Oscillator 2 can sync to oscillator 1. Pitch and PW can be modulated. 
Portamento is shared with oscillator 1. 
 
Ring Modulator: 
Each voice of PolySpaze has 1 ring modulator. 4 ring modulators in total. 
The ring modulator get it inputs from oscillator 1 and 2. 
The level of the ring modulated signal can be adjusted in the analog filters input mixer. 
 
Analog Filters: 
Each voice of PolySpaze has 2 analog filters. 8 in total. 
The first filter are a 24dB resonant highpass filter. The second one are a 24dB resonant lowpass filter. Cutoff and resonance for each filter can be adjusted. Oscillator 2 can also modulate the cutoff frequency of both filters (FFM - Filter FM). Cutoff, resonance and filter FM amount can be modulated. 
On the analog filters edit page, the level of oscillator 1, oscillator 2 and the ringmodulator can be adjusted. 
In connection with the filters, a special G-ray (Gotharman-Ray) circuit can be found, that will add grit and noise. G-Ray intensity, mode, and feedback can be adjusted, and feedback can be modulated. 
 
VCA's: 
Each voice of PolySpaze has 1 VCA. 4 in total. 
In poly, mono and multi-timbral play modes, the output signal from the analog filters goes directly to the VCA. In filter bank and stereo bank modes, the output signals of the oscillators goes to the VCA. 
The VCA can output to either audio output 1 and 2, EFX 1/2 or EFX 3/4. A pan control adjusts the levels of the audio signals sent to each output or effect. 
An ADSR envelope are attached to the VCA. The VCA envelopes can either be in linear or logarithmic mode. A Drone parameter are available, for opening the VCA without the envelope needing to be trigged. VCA pan, attack, decay and release can be modulated. 
 
ADSR Envelopes: 
Each voice of PolySpaze has 1 VCA envelope and 1 modulation envelope. 8 in total. 
With linear/logarithmic charateristics and the modulation envelopes has an additional offset control. Both the VCA envelopes and the modulation envelopes appears as modulation souces. 
 
LFO's: 
PolySpaze has 4 LFO's. These are global, and can modulate any voices. 
Waveform is morphable from triangle to saw to square to high speed FM waveforms. Rate can be adjusted. Both the rate and the wave parameters can be modulated. 
 
Random Generators: 
Each voice of PolySpaze has 1 random generator. 4 in total. 
Changes to a new random value every time they are trigged. Trigger sources can be note and LFO 1-4. 
 
Effects Processors: 
PolySpaze has 4 effects processors. Each of these can either be placed as a voice insert effect or as an output send effect.
All effects has a bypass/Freeze switch and a mix parameter. Many parameters can be modulated.
Effects can be linked for true stereo effects processing.
Effects present at the moment: 
As Insert Effects:
-Digital filter/EQ - 16 filter types and 2 EQ types. Derived from Fuzion. 
-Chorus - Gotharman's special chorus with an added Deep parameter, that adds space to the chorus. 
-Pitch-Shifter - +/- 1 octave, +/- 2 octaves or +/- 4 octaves. Adustable sense. 
-Stretcher - Tries to time stretch the input signal, while at the same time keeping up with it. Impossible? -Yes, indeed :-) 
-FM - Adds self-FM to the input signal in +/- 1 octave, +/- 2 octaves or +/- 4 octaves ranges. 
-Resonator - Adds space to the sound. 
-Distortions - 4 types: Valve, Sine, Fuzz, Xdis. 
-Pitch Shaper - 1 input version of Gotharman's special Pitch Shaper, that forces an audio signal to play back at a specific pitch, determined by an adjustable frequency. 
-Glitch Shifter 1 and 2 - Imperfect pitch shifters. 
-Wave Shaper - Re-shapes the input signal. 
-FAT - Adds up to 3 layers of the input sound on top of it. The Phaze of the added layers can be adjusted. 
As Output Effects:
-Granulator - Cuts the input signal up in grains, that can be re-arranged. The anAmoNo X granulator can sync to the sequencer. 
-Variator. Creates new variations of the input signal. Both pitch and rhythmic variations. 
-Delay - Delay with time and feedback controls, plus Gotharman's Deep, Size, Beam and Xfade controls. Deep adds space to the delay, Size makes the playback range more narrow than the input recording range, and beam beams the delay to previously unknown places. The Xfade control on this delay, creates valleys between the delay taps. The more it is turned up, the more time the valleys takes up. 
-Roto Delay - New Gotharman delay! This is a 2 tap delay, that is constantly crossfading between the 2 taps. When the Xfade control is turned down, the crossfading is rough, the more it is turned up, the more smooth the crossfading gets. Other controls are the same as the first delay. 
-Bright Delay - First delay, but with a brighter sound, created by a resonator. 
-Bright Roto Delay - Roto delay, but with a brighter sound, created by a resonator. 
-Reverb - Synthetic reverb. 
 
Sample Recorder: 
-Samples are kept in NOR FLASH RAM, that is much more stable than the widely used NAND FLASH, and that does not get any bad blocks. 
-Samples are kept even after a power off. 
-Total recording time: 22 minutes mono/11 minutes stereo. 
-Single sampling max length: 12 minutes mono/6 minutes stereo. 
-Max. 256 samplings/16.384 chop samples. 
-Recording sources: Audio input and output, USB import of .wav files. 
 
Audio Input: 
It is possible to record samplings from the stereo audio inputs, and they can be routed to the analog filters and the effects processors. 
 
4x 64-step Note sequencers with MIDI Out: 
Each Note track has 3 subtracks: 
-Note: Note input by touch or by realtime record. Octave and bar selected by knobs. Steps on/off selected by touch. 
-Gate Time: Values inputted by touch. Bar selected by knob. Steps on/off selected by touch. 
-Delay Time: Values inputted by touch. Bar selected by knob. Steps on/off selected by touch. 
 
8x 64-step control sequencers with MIDI Out: 
Each Controller track has 2 subtracks: 
-Control Values: Values inputted by touch. Bar selected by knob. Steps on/off selected by touch. 
-Slide Time: Values inputted by touch. Bar selected by knob. Steps on/off selected by touch. 
 
Play Modes: 
-Poly: The 4 voices polypnonic. 
-Poly Bank: The 8 analog filters forms a filter bank, which the 8 oscillators plays paraphonic into. 
-Mono: Complete control of all 8 oscillators and 8 analog filters in one huge mono synth! 
-Multi-timbral: Complete control of each of the 4 voices. Key range and MIDI channel settable for each voice. 
-Stereo Bank: Play back stereo samplings through a dual filter bank, formed by 2 x 4 analog filters. 
 
Morphing System:
-Each preset holds 2 sets of sound parameters. By using the Morph knob, or by assigning modulation to this, when morph mode is "Synth" or "Both", it is possible to morph between the 2 sets of parameters. Pushing the "Morph Settings" button on any edit page, will reveal the second set of parameters. 
-The sequencer also has 2 sets of parameters. Turning the Morph knob, when set to "Seq" or "Both" mode, will morph between the 2 sets of parameters -Morph from one tune to another. 
 
Touch Screen Keyboard:
