Rngs release - please use this topic for any questions/issues and tips for other users.
This is free for everyone, and once I get sorted out, I’ll release the code as open source.
If you can afford a donation to my ko-fi account that would be great, and encourage me to develop more SSP VSTs
Have fun patching…
note: Ive included instructions in the zip file, but this topic may include more up to date information.
Rngs : Resonator
rngs - an implementation of Mutable Instrument Rings for the Percussa SSP.
1.2.0 updated for new SSP firmware
- requires new ssp firmware for vst sdk 2 !
- auto detection of audio/strum/voct
- mono compatibility
- ssp preset now stores/loads vst parameters
- pitch is now bipolar from 0.0f
- clicking encoder resets values
note: you will loose presets, as these are now stored in the SSP preset
1.1.0 internal release only - code cleanup
1.0.1 fix model persistence, add input gain, code re-org
1.0.0 Initial Release
I develop these plugins for free, please consider supporting my efforts with a donation.
Download : rngs.zip (1.9 MB)
important note: this requires the LATEST SSP firmware (26 Aug 2020)
plugins/*.so to sdcard
you may want to copy and rename the demo presets contained in
you may now remove
/plugins.preset folder on SSP sdcard as its no longer used
The best source of information about this module is the Mutable Instruments Rings manual
This document is based on the LATEST version of the plugin
Generally, I’ve tried to make as close as possible to the hardware modules.
Pitch & Frequency are synonymous in this context. Rings actually uses pitches internally not frequency
Excitation choice - see below
Models, I use a number to represent the models, 0,1,2 are the ‘normal’ modes, 3,4,5 are alternative modes.
added In Gain, this allows the input signal to be amplified, 0 = no gain (1x), up to 1.0 = 17x
as with the Mutable Rings module the VST will detect which input you are using to ‘excite’ rings.
tips/typical use for which input to use:
STRUM = for non-pitched excitation, or pitched where you just want the pitch encoder to be used.
STRUM + V/OCT = or pitched excitation
AUDIO + V/OCT = use external excitation, and pitch the resonator
Outputs are ODD and EVEN, not stereo pairs, and their ‘usage’ changes depending on ‘poly’ (as detailed in the manual).
However, there is alot of fun to be had panning these in varying degrees.
note: like MI Module - if you only patch the ODD output, then ODD and EVEN are summed evenly.
I highly recommend exciting Rngs with an external audio source (NOI/WTO/LFO), you can get all sorts of interesting sounds, that are not possible with internal exciter
I only recommend using at 48Khz sample rate, as this is how the Rings code is designed.
Using at other sample rates will lead to incorrect pitch, and possible other oddities.
( the only solution would be downsample/upsampling but this is sub-optimal on a platform such as the SSP)
