you guys never sleep?
great naming: C4T, at least with your font choice for the logo
It's looking fantastic bytheway, very clear design, even when it's mainly a copy of the original
No (hidden) 2 octave keyboard?
I always like to have instant access with soft synths.
Edit: ah, I think where you changed the power knob with 'Page' I will find it...?
Are you trying to stay close to the original concept (except the usual modern novelties which are part of our global consciousness)?
Otherwise I would like to see low-fi circuits as on the Elektrons (bitrate/samplerate reduction, distortion or SID-like primitivism).
Wavelength' OP8 and sparC (monophonic...) offer that, and I like it very much.
It would be a way to add something new to an old proven concept.
I mean, the C4t isn't an pure emulation or meant to be, so pricipal objections can't be very relevant.
Scope just sounds too good sometimes...
Btw., does the original one phase-cancelate your version at the same settings?
Just to inform, this is on Synthforum.com:
The Cat is similar to the ARP Odyssey, but not as similar as some people think.
Things that make this synthesizer unique are: The 2-voice keyboard, which has a second sample-and-hold for
the second voice, so both notes die out when you let go of the keys.
Each oscillator has a sub-octave output allowing you to get 4 separate notes from the machine at once (although two
must be octaves of the other two).
VCO 1 also has a triangle wave output, which ARP left off of the Odyssey.
Finally, the keyboard is switchable between 2-voice (poly) and 1-voice (mono) modes, allowing you to work
monophonically if you want to.
The ARP can't do that, so if you're using the ARP's ring modulator you will get random timbres if you
aren't careful to release each key before pressing the next one.
