Daisy Patch

3 Mono/Summed Saturators & Comb Filter

The Saturators work like this:

3 identical saturators on inputs 1, 2, and 3. They are labeled L, M, and H. Each are autonomous and tunable. They were designed to take a split from a multiband crossover. Namely, the LA67 LR4 eurorack module.

 

Output Channel 1 always sums the three channels. No need for an extra mixer there. In this way they become a very capable set of multiband saturators/distortions. Separate filters will also work, but won't be phase correct (but I mean who cares?).

 

Output Channels 2-4 are all individual outputs. That way you can use them as a stereo distortion or 3 separately controlled channels of that algorithm.

 

You probably don't want to use output 1 unless you are using a crossover or are using high/low/band pass filters to separate your sound.

The outputs are roughly compensated. Adding a ton of distortion wont give you a higher output volume. In most cases it is just barely lower in volume. This makes it easy to evaluate whether more distortion is actually better, since you aren't fooled by loudness. It also wont redline the Daisy Patch.

 

I have a personal version that has expanded midi control. Ask about it in the chat bubble and I can shoot you a copy and let you know what the midi is. The expanded controls add wet/dry to all channels and alter some additional parameters to the saturators.

Each of the saturation programs uses the knob 1 as a volume control. Then the 3 other knobs control Low, Mid, & High Distortion, which are respectively outs 2, 3, & 4, unmixed.
 

The Programs (with GenExrp code adopted from strk.waveshaping & Yofiel Synthcore):

MagLev: My favorite one. Tape style saturation with bias control. Based on Tom Szilagyi's plugin.

Troika_Drive: A smoother overdrive by Volker Bohm.

Phat Eleven: By Laurent de Soras. Fun distortion, more versatile. 

Uber_Comb: A stereo Daisy adoption of Yofiel's comb filter. This one has two modes of operation. Linked stereo, where the two channels are controlled by the left side's parameters. Or unlinked, so you can then have two mono comb filters or make stereo comb filtering very interesting.
