    Hey there,

    here I wanted to start a thread in which I want to present some of my ideas I would have or even like to see for Microtonic:

    • some more sound noise types
    • filter envelopes
    • linking velocity to more parameters than just the three existing ones
    • polyphonic mode in the "Pitched MIDI mode"
    • adjusting the decaying curve types / tension (especially for the pitch mod)
    • maybe some FM stuff for the OSC (while I saw something in the scripting video ... will check it out, if I might have missed something!)

    If any idea might be not clear enough, please tell me and I'll try to elaborate it. Thanks for reading!

    Hello
    I totaly agree with Manuel's ideas and have some more to add.

    1. Sample section for at least one audio sample that can be loaded.
    2. Mixer section for all instruments for mixing in real time.
    3. Would be great to have 12 or 16 multitimbral.
    4. May be flexible section configuration where you could have only what you use and not see what you don't use.

    some more sound noise types : number 1!!
    polyphonic mode in the "Pitched MIDI mode" : would be great !!
    maybe some FM stuff for the OSC : there is some actually, but a deeper FM approach would be cool indeed ( look at the picture ).
    a reworked GUI ... the actual one is too small & not friendly.

    Thanks for the new feedbacks here! Regarding the GUI: tbh this doesn't bother me, hehe. And too small? You know that you can scale it up to 200%?

  • Sergey Kharuta

    As to the GUI... in my opinion, this GUI is really perfect for drum machine. I really adore this it's GUI though I changed the color of mine ))). I've been using mTonic longer than 10 years and I've seen almost all the drum plugins on the market by now, mTonic is definitely the Best one. And it'll get even better when it's provided with all needed features )))))))
    I really wanna thank SonicCharge for this amazing instrument!!!

    Eh ... what!? :D ... how can you change the theme of Microtonic? And is it allowed? I remember some companies would not allow a theme-hack, due to copyright reasons.

  • Sergey Kharuta

    NO NO NO!!!! I wouldn't allow myself to hack anything!!! I'm not that kind of person. It's totally alowed by SonicCharge. Once I asked about possibility of Skin option in mTonic and Magnus Lidström answered me it's not needed because anyone can change the skin the way he wants )))
    And he explained how to do that. This is wery easy. I guess you can find it here in forum in some other topic.

    What is really nice is the instrument you made! Thank you again! As I understand you are the one who did it? Correct me if i'm wrong ) And by the way, I painted it using the pair of faders in common Preview app on my MacBook just usin the Adjust Color tool ))))))
    BUT!!! I have a question. This way to change the skin color used to work perfect and I changed it then in AU and VST plugins. But afer the last update, after changing the Skin color VST started to say that the file was broken so I had to return the original file back. and unfortunately now I can use only AU with this skin color (((((( Why does it work differently now?

  • Manuel Senfft

    Thanks for the answer. I will search the forum. Everything else should be a new topic, I guess, so that here could stay the FR thread maybe, hm? (-;

    +1 for the Noise types and filter envelopes.
    But my number one feature to add would be the possibility to Tune all channels to a certain scale.
    That would accelerate my workflow immensely.

    Because under certain circumstances, MacOS is verifying the integrity of bundles and will not allow any changes inside them. Apple is tightening its security measures with every MacOS update.

    We have implemented another way to change resources (for skinning etc), but maybe we never explained it. Just put your modified resources in a folder next to Microtonic.vst (or .component) with the name Microtonic V3.3 Resources. Like this:

    Typical, you do one collaboration with those Teenage Engineering guys and next thing we know you're cavorting around with solid-gold GUIs 🙄

    And you, sir, are an enabler 😠

    (Jokes aside, both Magnus and Fredrik both deserve all the solid-gold GUIs and then some! Thanks again for all the incredible tools you've made, and all the incredible ones you might make in the future as well!)

    What I would like to see is a "export single sample set" option. So not exporting the pattern as a WAV-file but a set of single samples. Let's say eight per drum voice, everyone played with a different velocity).

    So a set would contain 64 single samples which then could be used in Hardware samplers as a multisample set.
