NESWave Synth

A wavetable synth using sounds directly from the Nintendo Entertainment System – triangle, 2 pulses, and noise. Similar to my other CoolWave stuff but with some new additions. The first 4 waves are from the NES, but I wanted a few more options so there are some Commodore64, FM Synth, and Formant waves in there as well – kept to a smaller count so it’s easier to find what you want.

New features:
-Phase/Pulse width shaping/LFO
*NOTE: Not all waves produce sound in the entire phase range
-Delay volume and pan speed now controllable
-Mono or Poly
-In Mono mode, use the arp page to play 1 note at a time, picking your chord/speed/and decay. Probably my favorite feature…
-Granular Freeze: Use a modified version of C&G’s patch to freeze the grain. Use Wet/Dry 100% to freeze, next page GrainNote = 1 means you can play on keyboard transposed…

    Somehow I can’t play this patch, although I successfuly installed it. It creates a few register were Organelle find no patches. Is it still compatible with the new OS?

    Thanks a lot
