Karplus-Strong String/Percussion Synthesis

Post by DS-10 Dominator » Sat Feb 27, 2010 2:40 am

Karplus-Strong synthesis is mostly used for making strings and percussion. For this you need noise with feedbacked delay through a filter. In DS-10 you can achieve this effect (or something like it at least). I've made a track using this technique. You'll hear some weird piano strings, mouth harp (formant) sounds, and ...? I also found out you can make beautiful sounding cymbals, like they're played with sticks or sweeped with brushes. Check it out please.

Thanks for pointing out you can do this... I just got this awesome chorus-y guitar sound going.

Wonderful sound, any chance of a patch or sheet for this. I'm not good with the lingo about filters and feedback.
