Good day, Roland! I was relistening of this Kyma-X piece from you:
https://soundcloud.com/roland-kuit/fm-w ... rator-test
"FM on Warped Phase Oscillator and Pattern Generation"

Very enjoyable sounds. Could you please tell a bit more what was happening in it?

Thanks koner, it was a phase distorting experiment.
In this vid the phase is altered by the sequencer's MIDIKeyPitch.
This creates different harmonics:

Thanks for additional examples, this is interesting.

"Warped" refers to waveshaping?

In case of modulating time it is.

In the bell examples frequencies were added to create metallic spectra.
In granular synthesis this is done by creating clusters of particles:

Micro-movements to bring an arco sample to life. Chaotic movements copied 24 x. You will hear different vibrato's in intensities and rates. As these are copies, we hear fase differences too fading in and out harmonics

Have you checked out FlipWrap?
https://kyma.symbolicsound.com/library/ ... -flipwrap/

It was a sound I worked on with some others to do multi-reflection folding (up to 255 folds). I find it a bit more easily controllable than the Input/Output version.

Now I did.

I have been a long time reader here on the forum and especially lately in this thread and wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone here for the inspiration!
This August I finally took the plunge and picked up a second-hand paca and I am super happy with the whole Kyma system so far! Trying to wrap my head around all the different directions this thing can go but already appreciate the sound quality of the system...

I am posting here two of my recent "explorations" from my practice sessions with Kyma ... this is maybe more in a musical context than super-advanced sound design, but I am trying to get there slowly ;)


The first one is a modal filter as the main arpeggio going into a chorus + delay followed by granular reverb:



The second one is a Random Order Sequencer triggering one xylophone tone and one kalimba tone and 4-voice synth towards the end:


All best and Merry Christmas!
Alex
That second one is pretty damn sweet.
