Then connect the output of the filter to the mixer and you should again hear the signal. Now connect this box to the second input of the oscillator. Great tutorial, thanks for your efforts…. Here is where we can configure how birule voices we want the synth to have and how it chooses what to do when it runs out of voices.
You should end up with something looking bidulee this:. Once you’ve got the ports in place, we can get into Reason and start wiring things up! Some polyphonic synths on bidjle market are plain CPU drains as each and every voice consumes resources all of the time. There wont be any sound just yet though.
Heres a complete picture of the current setup Now before we add the envelope we need to consider how we can control the start and stopping of the sound.

The input types are colour coded so you can tell which types of signals go where. Now connect the output of the oscillator to the mixer.
Open the sequencer panel and reduce the BPM to maunal 50 and play with the envelope settings you can leave R for now as it wont make any difference Play around with the Filter Env Amount as well to see how that affects the sound. The level at which the envelope holds while it receives a gate signal.
Bicule we are going to use the envelope to control the filter cutoff of each note as it plays. Now we need to go into the group and wire it up.
You can bidulr this layout here PolySynth. The manual explains this as follows: They are as follows: Now you should see the filter block with 2 inputs and 1 output. Now try playing your midi keyboard…hmm, well it works but it sounds kind of out of tune.
Have a play around and see what sounds turn up, its always good for a bit of inspiration for new presets. Lets wire up the note extractor to the oscillator, we wont use the control key while wiring the note extractor because we dont want to wire up all 4 outputs to all 4 inputs.
Thank you Martin for this great tutorial. All the other wave types have harmonics which will be affected by the filter setting. Bidule makes this really easy, but we have to do a little bit of preparation first. The first, BPM, just controls how fast the sequence plays. We want stereo output, so while dragging a line from the left mixer output to your audio device, hold down the control key and it will attach both cables. So when I write 10, it means ten thousand, and if I write Dont include the midi input device or the mixer in your selection.
Thanks for the reply! The 2 outputs arent for stereo sound, they are 1: The basic oscillator has 4 audio rate inputs and 1 output. Go into the palette and open up the MIDI section.
And also you can lock a setting, so when you use either random or mutate, it wont change. Now let’s open the VST interface for Bidule. You should be able to play it again from your midi keyboard and change the settings from its panel.
If only 1 out of 12 maximum voices are needed at one point, then only 1 out of 12 is effectively taking cpu resources To make our group, select everything starting from the note extractor, up to the mixer. Leave this field empty. It only has one output, the number we set. In Bidule you can open the parameters window and map the parameters of Bidule to any VST loaded to the Bidule surface.
Click on it to select it, then drag the handle which goes into the mixer to the first input of the filter.

Wow, thanks so much for putting this together. I have been using reaktor for some time and have not found any tutorials as well written as this one. If you have a midi keyboard, you probably want to try playing your new synth using that.
Now we can start to add our envelopes to get better control over the shape of the filter and the amplitude as each note plays.

Currently we are using a constant to control the amplitude of the oscillator, but we wont use this anymore so go ahead and delete it. Before we go back up to the main layout, its always wise to label the connectors, so that when you roll your mouse over them you know what they are for.
I’ve added 5 and labeled them Loop1-Loop5. For our simple synth we will use an envelope and lfo for the filter, and one envelope for the amplitude control.
