Last week I put out an update for the nuSpin VST instrument beta testers that included the addition of a second per-note filter among other goodies. The next day, I had an email waiting in my box with a great audio clip attached that highlights what is now possible. Everything but the drums is nuSpin:
I have been sensing that the synth is getting close to ready because I have been finding it more difficult to resist playing with it myself. As I was testing the two-filter design a couple weeks ago, I discovered one of the tricks I have heard in a lot of dubstep music played on filth.fm: By using a sawtooth wave and modulating the frequency of two parallel band-shelf filters in opposite directions, you can get something that sounds like a robot saying “yoy”. That discovery probably cost me an hour of development time! 🙂
Step by step, I am getting closer to living up to the motto of nuVibrations LLC: Software Helping Artists Stay Fresh.
