GOLDFINGER (Golden Ratio Delay)

V2: GOLDFINGER & GOLDFINGER 2

This is my reissue of the Golden Ratio patch from three years ago. The new patch comes in two versions. Both are fine for Ambient with some gimmicks under the hood. Have fun customizing or just playing!

GOLDFINGER is a Golden Ratio patch based on four different delay times. These delay times can be freely combined with each other. Additionally a reverb can be added. Designed for bass/guitar. Also works with synthesizers.

Page 1: Cockpit – The heart of the patch.
>>>Two rows of “In Switches” in orange (gold). Here, the individual delay times are selected via the Channel button (second to last in the row, or directly under the Eye sign). There are four channel settings per delay: Slow, Medium, Fast, Fast +. These are calculated and adjusted by me using the Golden Ratio formula. The values are rounded up or down. Ch3 and Ch2 are stored as presets. The delay times are freely combinable, but not adjustable in a certain sense.
>>>Two rows of “pushbuttons” in white. These create glide effects. Works like the channel settings Ch1-Ch4 per row. Is really just a gimmick.
>>>Stomp switch on the left: turns on plate reverb.
>>>Stomp switch center: turns on the “freeze” function of the plate reverb. Only works if the stomp switch on the left is switched on!
>>>Stomp switch right: Switches on the compressor.

Page 2: Operator
>>>Mixer: Here you can generally adjust the gain of the individual delays. If necessary, the panorama can be changed according to the mood. If the patch initially comes in mono, quickly go to page 2 and briefly turn the Pan 1 knob “L100-R0” back and forth in the mixer. The stereo sound will then come alive again.
>>>Compressor: Is freely adjustable. The initial setting is the factory setting.
>>>Reverb: Is set to a short and long reverb, which can be switched on and off completely with the stomp switch. Stompswitch center: Turns on the “freeze function” of the plate reverb. Only works when the left stompswitch is on! I chose the Plate Reverb because, unlike the Tape Delays, it brings a nice coldness. The long reverb generally reminds me of a freeze sound, which can be used to create soundscapes. The settings of the reverb are freely adjustable. See -> Mix=33.

Page 3: Operator 2
>>>Delay 1: Setting is set to “Old Tape”.
>>>Delay 2: Setting is set to “Tape”.
The settings can be adjusted as desired.

The remaining pages are VCAs, Audio In & Outs, etc.

>>>Important: If the patch initially comes in mono, quickly go to side 2 and briefly turn the Pan 1 knob “L100-R0” back and forth in the mixer. The stereo sound will then come alive again. Sorry about that, haven’t figured out what that might be about yet! I am now off on vacation.

GOLDFINGER 2 is a golden ratio ambient patch based on its predecessor. Designed for synthesizers. Also works with bass/guitar.

>>>Reverb: Two independent reverbs channels (true stereo) that can be completely turned on and off with the left stomp switch. Center Stompswitch: Turns on the “freeze function” of the Hall-reverb. I chose the Hall-reverb because, unlike the two reverb channels, it brings a nice foundation that becomes audible after a while. The general interaction of the different reverbs is very nice, which can be used to quickly create soundscapes. The settings of the reverb are freely adjustable.

The remaining pages are VCAs, Audio In & Outs, etc.

V1:

GOLDFINGER ist ein Golden Ratio-Patch, welches auf vier unterschiedlichen Delay-Zeiten zweier Stereo-Delays basiert. Diese sind frei miteinander kombinierbar. Erstellt für Bass/Gitarre.

Seite 1: Compressor und Delay 1. Der Compressor ist hier frei einstellbar. Ausgangslage sind die Werkeinstellungen. Das Delay 1 ist auf «Old Tape» eingestellt.
Seite 2: Delay 2 und Plate Reverb. Das Delay 2 ist auf «Tape» eingestellt. Plate Reverb ist auf ein kurzes und langes Reverb eingestellt, welches sich mit dem linken Stompswitch nach belieben komplett ausschalten lässt.
Seite 3: Mixer. Das Herz des Patches. Über den Audio Mixer kann generell Gain der einzelnen Delays eingestellt werden. Ggf auch Panning nach Lust und Laune. Nun folgen die drei «In Switcher» in Magenta-Farbe. Hier werden über den Channel-Button (vorletzte in Reihe) die einzelnen Delay-Zeiten gewählt. Pro Delay sind es vier Channel-Einstellungen: Slow, Medium, Fast, Fast+. Diese sind von mir nach der Golden Ratio-Formel ausgerechnet und bestimmt. Die Werte sind auf- oder abgerundet. Als Preset ist Ch3 und Ch2 gespeichert. Die Delay-Zeiten sind frei miteinander kombinierbar jedoch nicht verstellbar in dem Sinne. Sie sind fix. Das Reverb wird über den «In Switcher» drunter kontrolliert. Channel 1 ist Short Reverb und Channel 2 ist Long Reverb. Ich habe das Plate Reverb auserwählt, da es eine schöne Kälte als Gegensatz zu den Tape Delays mit sich bringt. Das lange Reverb erinnert mich allgemein an einen «Freeze»-Sound, mit dem Klangwelten erstellt werden können!
Der rote Button zeigt an, ob das Reverb mit dem linken Stompswitcher ein- oder ausgeschaltet wurde. Alle Channels werden von Hand mit dem «Knob» gesteuert.

Die CPU-Auslastung sollte 96% nicht überschreiten. Viel Spass beim Anpassen oder Geradeaus-Spielen!

    _____________________________________________________________

    GOLDFINGER is a golden ratio patch, which is based on four different delay times of two stereo delays. These can be freely combined with one another. Created for bass / guitar.

    Page 1: Compressor and Delay 1. The compressor is freely adjustable here. The starting point is the factory settings. Delay 1 is set to «Old Tape».
    Page 2: Delay 2 and Plate Reverb. Delay 2 is set to “tape”. Plate Reverb is set to a short and long reverb, which can be completely switched off using the left stomp switch.
    Page 3: Mixers. The heart of the patch. The audio mixer can generally be used to set the gain of the individual delays. If necessary, pan as the mood takes you. Now follow the three “In Switches” in magenta color. Here the individual delay times are selected via the channel button (penultimate in a row). There are four channel settings per delay: Slow, Medium, Fast, Fast +. These are calculated and determined by me according to the golden ratio formula. The values ​​are rounded up or down. Ch3 and Ch2 are saved as presets. The delay times can be freely combined with each other but not adjustable in a sense. The reverb is controlled via the “In Switch” underneath. Channel 1 is short reverb and Channel 2 is long reverb. I chose the Plate Reverb because it brings a nice coldness as opposed to the tape delays. The long reverb generally reminds me of a freeze sound that can be used to create soundscapes!
    The red button shows whether the reverb was switched on or off with the left stomp switch. All channels are controlled by hand with the encoder knob.

    CPU usage should not exceed 96%. Have fun adjusting or playing as-is!
