Audio Damage Proton
Starting with the delay line, which is "tuned" via the coarse and fine tune knobs, we then add a quality low pass filter (modelled on the MS20's LPF) and damping circuits. We hit this with a noise burst from an analog random number generator that passes through two more filters and an envelope with decay to produce the plucked sound. A "CHOKE" input empties the delay line, for extra dynamic control.
Since Karplus-Strong synthesis lacks bottom in general, we have a "SUB" control that adds a sine at the fundamental frequency to produce gut-churning low end in the bass register. The result is a physical model synth that is capable of both delicate harp-like plucks and monster face-melting basslines.
Proton is Audio Damage's take on the classic Karplus-Strong tuned delay line physical modelling synthesis. Take a capable "vintage digital" style delay line with 1V/Oct clocking, and add an enveloped...
