•••zensphere - bumperjacked••• [mid-tempo psychedelic glitch hop]

Hey fellow renoisers
Got a new tune up after a long hiatus of posting anything. I’ve been experimenting with karplus-strong type synthesis methods within renoise a lot lately. This track features a synth cobbled together with key trackers and renoise dsp chains. I’ve been enjoying the sounds I’ve been getting. kinda atonal and percussive. Anyway, have a listen, and as always, feedback and constructive criticism appreciated!


Indeed some nice sounds come out of this approach.What is karplus-strong type synthesis?

I love these kind of arty techno sounds, and these glitchy rythmes are groovy! :walkman:

From Wikipedia:

Karplus–Strong string synthesis is a method of physical modelling synthesis that loops a short waveform through a filtered delay line to simulate the sound of a hammered or plucked string or some types of percussion.

At first glance, this technique can be viewed as subtractive synthesis based on a feedback loop similar to that of a comb filter for z-transform analysis. However, it can also be viewed as the simplest class of wavetable-modification algorithms now known as digital waveguide synthesis, because the delay line acts to store one period of the signal.


Glad you like the soundz :slight_smile:
