Latcher is a VST3i noisebox synth in the same vein as NANDroid and XORbot, and contains many of the same features as those previous synths. The sound-generating part is something of a cross between a circuit I built called the Modutronic Messmaker (an AM/FM noisebox), XORbot, and an Atari Punk Console.
Latcher is a noisebox synth in the same vein as NANDroid and XORbot, and contains many of the same features as those previous synths. The sound-generating part is something of a cross between my Modutronic Messmaker circuit and an Atari Punk Console, in that it combines the AM/FM oscillator configuration with the osc-triggered monostable of the APC. In keeping with the logic-based theme of the previous two noiseboxes, it also includes a switchable “mod osc” that is fed into an XOR gate with the APC-like signal on the other input (pre monostable).
NANDroid and XORBot have both been updated to V1.01, with the biggest change being that MIDI note value is now available as a modulation source in any of the assignable slots, including the Combiners. This change is largely thanks to a user request.
Another change is that these and other FSA plugins will now be available from Gumroad. They are still available for free if you like, just enter a price of “$0”.
Some ultra-minimal technoid made with Giorgio Sancristoforo’s early electronic music studio simulation, Berna3. The video was made with TouchDesigner. https://www.giorgiosancristoforo.net/ https://derivative.ca/product/touchdesigner-non-commercial/77 The Berna3 patch is available from the FSA website, link below.

XORbot is another fairly simple noisebox synth based on logical operations. Though it has some similarities to the previously-released NANDroid, it uses a different method of sound generation and thus creates a different kind of cacophony.
XORbot is somewhat related to NANDroid, in that it uses logical operations to generate sounds, and features a similar modulation setup and synth engine. The synth itself is finished, just working on presets and a manual.
Here’s an audio demo, starting from a preset and tweaking knobs:
Uploaded a new (and free) SFZ, sampled from a Kurzweil K2000. The sound is made from one of the K2000’s built-in piano sounds, and makes use of amplitude modulation. It can be found on the Samples page or downloaded directly with the following link:
I’ve been uploading stuff to patchstorage.com, starting with my VCV Rack patches. I’ve also started adding Reaktor stuff, and in the process have made a demo video for Loid’s Cousin. The others will follow in the near future.
