Audio Synthesizer

Running through some basic audio synthesis concepts with Vuo audio tools.

Since there are such amazing modular environments out there solely dedicated to audio, I hadn't given Vuo much thought for audio. Vuo of course has its own special charm, and having made this comp I can now better imagine some interesting results integrating some audio with visuals in Vuo.

Here's another spectrum plug I made using a different approach. Unfortunately this is even less accurate, but it looks fun and is useful as a visualizer. Here I have the "Calculate Amplitude for Frequencies" set to "quadratic", which arranges the bin values decently enough that they can be processed in an even row (In the previous composition I spaced the bins exponentially). With the bins spaced linearly they can then be processed as scalable rectangle layers. If anyone knows a good way of taking the bins and then reprocessing them into more accurate data then please let me know.

This is a frequency spectrum I made for VJ use, particularly in Resolume. My aim was to make a spectrum that would be fun to watch mostly, rather than being super accurate. I think it makes a good base source and then you can add effects from there, ie colours, feedback etc.

Device Picker

Original composition by Magneson. Here it is as a subcomposition for convenient reuse.

This composition outputs a device element from a list, with a separate control panel window for moving forward and backward in the device list. It currently uses List HIDs, but can be swapped out with List MIDI Devices, List OSC Devices, etc.
