Post your Instruments here!

I couldn’t find a thread with just instrument posts. So… maybe start one?

Phatty Basic & Unison
Basic.xrni (10.3 KB)
This is basic stuff but seems worthy of sharing, esp for those new to making instruments
Synth with saw/square oscillators and sub - Many fx already in chain to play with, that will not affect sub
Unison.xrni (22.0 KB)
Same as above but with unison thanks to zen’s trick

SubSupersonic Drums
SubSuperSonic Drums.xrni (1.2 MB)
Adds sub and noise to drum loops using transients lp filtered for sub, hp for noise and a cool filtered delay

Vinyl Scratch
Vinyl Scratch.xrni (997.5 KB)
A realistic vinyl scratching effect! Comes with 2 samples. I tried to make phrases but can’t automate the modulation :frowning: Thanks to the pitch modulation it is possible! To get it to sound right it’s probably best to use envelope automation. Got inspired watching someone on youtube do it for another daw

Delay Lama
Delay Lama.xrni (8.7 KB)


2 instruments - Sine Wavefolder, Saw Wavefolder:

Wave Folder Sine.xrni (3.4 KB)

Wave Folder Saw.xrni (3.9 KB)

Two dials affect the ‘Fold’ and ‘Resonance’, West-coast style variance, combine with filters for long morphs.


ReGranulizer v3.xrni (317.7 KB)
Granular synthesis in Renoise. Read the comments, but basically, try dropping in different samples & twisting macros & changing phrases. Each phrase has a variety of available “playheads” (i.e. note-columns) that change grain playback behavior

some very interesting sound generation capability :upside_down_face:


Some bass instruments I’ve made:

Classic Reese.xrni (6.5 KB)
West Rumble.xrni (4.2 KB)
Garage Reese.xrni (135.9 KB)

I put some of these together pretty messily but I think they could still be pretty useful.


303 Clone-ish.xrni (9.7 KB)My attempt at a TB303


some instrument ideas, hope they are useful

everyone needs a house organ bass in their lives
powerchord organ.xrni (1.4 MB)


MBPRO_031.xrns (21.5 KB)

a few experiments. since the renoise delay is not quite designed for these sounds, I replaced it with a free instrument. and for a more comprehensive understanding, a small demo example

I hope this will be of some use in your work.

Dude I love freq echo. Will check your xrni :slight_smile:

yeah, nice work!

I love the resonant, physical modelling-type sounds you can get from filtered delay lines in time-based dsp. I do a lot of this sort of thing with the renoise chorus, flanger, delay, and phaser dsps. Lots of character and depth posssible with these kinds of techniques. good stuff :+1:
