SP404 subsonic effect in Drambo
Not sure how many of you rock 404s but there’s an effect effect on it called subsonic. Roland infamously left this effect out of the mk2 but it got me thinking I’m certain it could be made and improved in Drambo.
For those that are unfamiliar subsonic adds a bass note when your track volume goes over an adjustable threshold. works with 3 knobs, first is to tune the note, second adjusts the threshold which triggers it and third is the wet/dry blend. I’ve got similar results so far using a vca being opened by an envelope follower fed by flexi. haven’t bothered folding and mapping macro knobs yet till I get the idea right. obviously this is more flexible than subsonic in that I could change wave/filter/saturate the note
this all works but it doesn’t really nail the threshold thing as the samples amplitude is pumping the vca which (while similar) isn’t triggering by an adjustable threshold level. any ideas?
