Ok so right now there’s this really cool thing you can do, that’s done in one of the stock drumkits (best way imo to learn about R3 capabilities is to look at the stock instruments), is to make a silent sample that’s just a line across the top and play it through a ring mod to generate a tone (or the lofimat for noise). This is a cool way to design some sounds, specifically drums and weird noises, but isn’t terribly useful for pitched instruments. Of course, that’s to be expected because this is sort of going above a beyond what it was actually intended to do, the ring mod is supposed to be a ring mod not a generator.
So why not have a dedicated generator DSP with the most ultrabasic of controls? Just generate a tone, be able to toggle keyboard mode or choose frequency mode, pulse width slider, and maaayyyybe a unison effect?
