Ok, this may be related to the "resonator notes being fixed at 3kHz": In a patch I am working on Kaivo locks up with sad little high-pitched "feep" and has to be reloaded, once I get up to C3 and C4, with keyboard pitch info sent to the grain and resonator engine, as well as the body. I'll email you the patch in question.

Just had time to check out the new beta, here is what I have noticed:

  • Performance is drastically better. I get double the voices now.
  • the limiter is much nicer, very clean. Still would love an overdrive possibility
  • the new synthetic harmonic banks are beautiful, they remind me of the E350 module.
  • that chorus is wonderful, almost too good. A bit like the Juno 60. You should release it as standalone.
  • Spring resonators sounds great!

Off to play with it more!

Patching up noise: That Death Tape Under Your Car Seat

One instance, no fx.

Metal Conch Music - this feels to me like my first "finished" piece of music with Kaivo. I used one three voice generative patch (did nothing while it ran) and a touch of Valhalla VVerb.

One feature I would like when patching is an end of cycle out for the envelopes. I use this on the modular constantly to get things swinging. Just a suggestion, of course.

To add: Kaivo has not crashed once, it feels very reliable already.

Here is a patch where I tried to go less for gnarly sounds, but rather more clean and shining tones.

New York Cello Player

@Randy: It does sound very good, much better than any of the PM synth I tried. I can't any more wishes despite what has been said already. Maybe if I play a bit more with it something will come up. For now, I am rather happy.

This is so much fun! I uploaded two more patches to the Soundcloud group.

Sound suggestions:
I am interested in more bodies, if possible instrument bodies with nice resonant zones such as violins. Also, some more resonator models would be beautiful.

The limiter is useful, but maybe it could act a bit more dirty and go into a wilder overdrive? Of course I could simply insert a plugin behind it, but the way an instrument overdrives by itself has a huge appeal to me.

That's all for now!


(lowering the number of voices in an adaption of the "harmonic sweep patch" caused Kaivo to stop outputting sounds, even though the sequencer was still running. I had to open another patch and then get reload this to make it play again.)

NOT A BUG - I had a gate from the "KEY" section still patched in.

second patch, playing around with the body, running two voice

My first patch

Just installed it and playing it now with my morning coffee. I am getting sounds I have not heard yet from this computer box, bravo!

Bug Report (Using MacOSX 10.7.5, Live 9.1 Suite, AU Version)

In the BODY Section:
when I up the pitch to + 1.00 with the "small wood box" the output is only crackling white noise. All other impulses retain their original sound.

In the Sequencer:
When set to INT, starting and stopping playback of Live 9.1 stops the sequencer. Has to be set to HOST and back to play again.

I am making a lot of patches, its so much fun! Here is a downbeat groove with tuneable bassdrum. Just play it with the keys.

And here is another one, HB Disco 1978. Sounds best to me at range C2/C3. I set the LFO to many more parameters than are active now, so playing with them might be a good starting point.

Ha! I was inspired by Aalto in the same way. So it is a gateway drug!

If you are interested, here is my Aalto-inspired Eurocrack setup (scroll to the end of the thread)


I guess I was rather unprecise - I meant the decay time of the gate. If that had an modulating point of its own, it would awesome, at least for some of my patches. But I could...trying it out...just do it with modulation on the ADSR. Ok, that works! Now I miss the facepalm smiley.

Maybe I am too dumb to work it out, but its not possible to modulate the gate right now, am I right?
If so, a modulating gate would be awesome!

Randy, just the mention of an Aalto 2 makes me jump! I'll see if I can get more patches together, but that will take some time.
Listening and tweaking your Shruti patch now - lovely!

Thx randy!

Feel free to add them to the preset library, if they fit in there.

@borealis: I love your patch! Reminds me of the Waldorf PPG.
