Sample Patches in Obsidian
FWIW and for those who may not have used samples much in Obsidian, I thought I’d pass on a helpful tip. I’m working with some older samples of a synth that only have a single sample of the C note for each octave. Setting Key range of G below and F# above splits the octave logically, but I was often getting a noticeable ‘stepped’ change in tone between F# and G, especially in the higher octaves. Overlaping the key range helps aleviate this a lot. Sometimes just overlapping by setting the Min & Max ranges to F# (overlapping by one semitone) does it. For other samples overlapping the sample’s Key Range even more does the trick. Just thought you’d like to know if you haven’t tried it yet.
I also find that for many of the samples I am working with, setting the Sample Parameter to Loop Sustain really handles repetative clicks & pops of the sample looping quite nicely. This is one of my favorite features of the Sample Oscillators. Another trick I use is to have samples or synthesis on the other oscillators - that really helps cover any clicky loop points.
I’m betting many of the sound designer geniuses on this forum already knew these things. If anyone has some other Sample Oscilator tips, please share.
