The trigger on the other hand just changes to 1 when the note on occurs, and then goes back to 0 as soon as possible i. Thank you for your comments. Lets wire up the note extractor to the oscillator, we wont use the control key while wiring the note extractor because we dont want to wire up all 4 outputs to manaul 4 inputs. Once you’ve got the ports in place, we can get into Reason and start wiring things up!
Now we need to go into the group and wire it up. This means it outputs MIDI data, not just raw numbers like the blue bixule. I hope this was helpful!
This is the audio output, then we will use the activity gate from the Amp Env to tell bidule when a voice is playing not the filter, because the filter may finish before the envelope. Blue inputs can have multiple cables connected to them, and when that happens all the numbers coming in are added together.
Thanks for that, never thought about this. Try playing around with the oscillator frequency variable and the filter to see how the biidule changes. First, let’s take an inventory of what we’ll need for this. We want stereo output, so while dragging a line from the left mixer output to your audio device, hold down the control key and it will attach both cables.
And also you can lock a setting, mamual when you use either random or mutate, it wont change. Open the ADSR panel and reduce the sustain to about 4. The two other types are Yellow and Orange for spectral frequencies and magnitudes.
This panel is for setting up the inputs, outputs and the name of the group. The Polyphonic Adapter in Bidule bldule care of that. I’ll drag it into the rack while holding shift so we don’t get a mix channel, and then I’ll right click on the rack unit and delete the associated track that was created as we won’t need it.
Chapter 1. Introduction : Bidule’s Concepts
Biudle lets start with a really simple sequencer, manua that will just play a different note after some time passes.
You should have a layout that looks like this: It should look like this: I’ll let you check the Bidule manual for how to get your VST plugins to show up in the palette, and I’ll similarly drag an instance of LuSH onto the Bidule surface.
There is still no sound because the oscillator is running with zero amplitude.
Sample input The audio we want to filter Frequency Input. So connect the first two outputs to the bidulle 2 inputs.
I always like to give things names, so I always go back to the bldule menu, select rename and try to think of something appropriate. Random just changes the unlocked controls to a random setting, whereas mutate will change the current value of a setting by the amount set in the params dialog.
Your email address will not be published. Add this to the canvas.
Now you should see the filter block with 2 inputs and 1 output. The time it takes to go down from the sustain level to zero. A progress dialog will appear to inform you that its creating the necessary voices.
It should now look a bit like this Now we can test that the audio is working. ADSR stands for Attack: Join us on Slack. Connect the sequencer output to the input of the note extractor. It should now look a bit like this.
Envelope output value Activity gate The gate and trigger are logic inputs as we saw earlier when looking at the note extractor. The Polyphonic Adapter is a special bidule that only appears in the right mouse menu of a voice group. Lets wire the note extractor to the envelope, using the third and fourth outputs of the extractor. Thanks for the reply!
Bidule Tutorial 1 : A Simple Synthesizer
Once those are set, leave the slider somewhere around Post Sat Jan 27, 2: When making a polyphonic synth, bidule uses the 2nd output to determine when a voice has finished playing. Its in the same group in the palette as variable so add one to the canvas. To make our group, select everything starting from the note extractor, up to the mixer. So I have a use for Bidule after all Ideally we might want to play the synth via midi. Sorry for the confusion.
Check your multitimbral VSTi’s manual for information on how to configure this specifically. And to control the sound you will often find a couple of envelopes and an LFO.
So if we keep the existing frequency control the variable we can use that as a base frequency to tune the oscillator. First biudle check that everything is working and you can hear some audio. Now let’s open the VST interface for Bidule.
