It would be nice to be able to change the mixture of operators as we move up and down in pitch, to simulate the way acoustic instruments vary to change in timbre between their highest and lowest notes. Dexed, which is available for free in AU and VST formats for Windows, macOS and Linux; 1. I also set the second operator to Fixed and the frequency to 2398 Hz. DEXED, is a FREE VST Plugin software you can find here. You should see we now have a three-storey stack with Op3 modulating Op2, which modulates the carrier Op1: Instead of breaking out a calculus textbook, I recommend setting Op3's "A mod sens" high, and setting up the LFO to be slow and deep, like this -- the result fades the modulation from Op3 in and out, making its effect easy to hear: Switch over to Op4, Op5 and Op6 to hear how a bit of feedback affects things; this time Op6 is just being fed back into itself, but the effect is still pretty noisy with the feedback control up a bit: If an operator is acting as a carrier, its envelope determines the volume of the sound in the usual way. The "L curve" indicates the shape of the effect, with the default slope indicating the volume will rise as you ascend from the bottom of the keyboard to the breakpoint; "L depth" indicates how strongly the curve affects the volume. When it's lower, you'll get a variety of different modulation effects that are hard to achieve by other means. In this video, I use Propellerheads Reason 10 to make a trap beat using Dexed only with the exception of the sounds from my drum kit, Spyder Demon. Level 2 and Rate 2 work together to give a "Decay" effect; notice that they also have a knock-on effect on the attack time. The two-operator setup on its own provides plenty of scope for FM synthesis. I sidechained the bass to the kick, to make the volume duck a bit. I'm also not going to discuss any history but if you'd like to hear some typical FM synth sounds from soon after the technique was invented I suggest Paul Lansky's gorgeous mild und leise: or the more abrasive Stria by John Chowning, who wrote one of the books mentioned above: With those sounds in our ears, let's get familiar with the Dexed interface and how the pieces fit together. Set the envelope to the values we’ve used above. This is one octave higher then the sub and has a moving filter type effect on it. Share ideas. There is a jumping play between the low and high parts in this track. Since learning Dexed I've often found myself making patches "FM first" rather than thinking additively and then adding FM like some kind of crackly frosting on top. This is basically a noise patch, using only sine operators. For a more chilled experience, admire and explore the diverse worlds of DEXED free of enemies in Zen Mode. Try adjusting the envelopes and the scaling of either the carrier or modulator to see what different sounds you can get. I'm running it in SAVIHost, which is a very clean and simple way to do it, but you can also just drop it into your preferred DAW. Turn up "PMD" and you increase the depth of the pitch modulation; turn up "PMD mod sens" to hear it. Korg Volca FM: Firmware 1.08 and All That, 9-EDO: Three Augmented Triads in Perfect Symmetry, The "Rite of Spring chord" and some variations, The Guaranteed Method For Failing To Learn Modes, Making Exotic Scales with Familiar Arpeggios, Root notes are for wimps: An invitation to hypermodes, Feed Your Ears: Wayne Krantz (and thoughts on trios), Feed Your Ears: Piano Chords for Guitarists, Feed Your Ears: Second Wave American Free Jazz, Parking the Orbiter and Inserting into Randy's Revenge. Im having an issue with getting Dexed (https://asb2m10.github.io/dexed/) the DX7 soft synth to work with push2.im using Isotonik Preditor with Dexed and Push2 which has so much potential but.... main issues seems to be that dexed does not send automation parameters (in configuration panel) to ableton live when it loads a new sound. You plugged one of these into the DX7 and it gave you 32 sounds: The INIT button in the same panel clears the current settings and gives you a simple but nasty-sounding init patch. By setting a DX7 in / DX7 out midi interface, Dexed will listen to specific program/cartridge changes from your DX7 and send controller/program/cartridge you edit. The plugin is comparable to the Yamaha DX7 hardware synth. This gives it more low end and less upper frequencies. Remember that although we're currently only using one operator, we'll be using more shortly. The "rate scaling" knob is a whole different thing. There are six operator that can be … When you play around, the results are likely to be raspy and harsh, with random tweaking often yielding no sound at all. Dexed is a multi platform, multi format plugin synth that is closely modeled on the Yamaha DX7. But I tend to just reach for a stereo imager (ozone or magic stereo) and make sure the low end is mono, whilst checking in mono also. The quality of the sound is like a glass, which is implemented with two operators playing serially and I also adjusted the envelopes to have very short decays. Incidentally, William Sethares has written some interesting stuff about how these ratios between harmonics might relate to consonance and dissonance in different tuning systems. In addition to the user guide, the nerds got hold of a copy of The Complete DX7 by Howard Massey; the real nerds also had FM Theory and Applications for Musicians by Musicians by John Chowning. Use "coarse" to set the order of magnitude in Hz (1, 10, 100, 1000 etc) and then "fine" to pick out the exact pitch you want and "det" for ultra-fine tuning that's not really audible on its own but will be useful later. Dexed is a multi platform, multi format plugin synth that is closely modeled on the Yamaha DX7. Here's a patch using this idea but leveraging operator scaling to cross-fade between the two stacks so that lower pitches have a simple ratio of 2:1 for modulator (Op4) to carrier (Op3), whereas the higher pitches have a much messier ratio of 14.16:1 (Op2 to Op1). DEXED – irregular frequencies in the FM/PM spectrum A heartly “Hello” and big “Thank you” for DEXED! This is a simple 4/4 beat with kick and snare drums. This is just a matter of mixing. A percussion loop which I mixed to the left and cut the low end. Dexed is a multi platform, multi format plugin synth that is closely modeled on the Yamaha DX7. It’s also FREE. I pulled this from my yamaha tx7 module via midi editor, it works perfectly in Dexed then it does in other software, dexed pretty much nails the sound. I mixed this track a bit to the right. I added the mid-range tonal synth melodies. I also did sometimes with the high end on specific instruments. Pretty neat little bit of software tbh. As ever, the more tools you have in your box, the better. The goal of this project is to be a tool/companion for the original DX7. Envato Tuts+ tutorials are translated into other languages by our community members—you can be involved too! For shaping the sound further I cut with EQ at 50 Hz, then boosted 177 Hz by +3 dB and cut 596 Hz by -2 dB. Adjusting the level of the modulator down from the maximum will remove some of the raspiness that you may be getting tired of hearing. Re: Dexed plugin not registering being enabled Post by Trebor » Sat Mar 02, 2019 9:02 am Check you've downloaded the 32-bit versions of the plugins, ( not 64-bit). Comes with AudioUnit AUv3 plugin for use inside AUM and other DAW apps like GarageBand. If you turn up Level 4, the note will die away to that level instead and then keep going indefinitely; this isn't very useful when we're listening to it but it will be later when we use the oscillator to modulate another sound. Dexed is a free software synthesizer developed by Digital Suburban.Available format(s): VST, Audio Unit for Windows 64b, macOS. Dexed has six, each of which lives in a little squarish rectangle with a number in its upper right corner, like this: Notice that most of the interface is taken up by the six operators. In FM jargon, an oscillator is called an "operator". So this is not an intermediate or advanced tutorial, more of a day one orientation. You may want to grab the extra carts as well; this gives you about 3000 patches to experiment with, since reverse engineering other people's patches is a great way to learn any synth. I gave the sound some space with a Reverb (3.79 sec decay, medium predelay and 44% dry wet). The harmonics added depend on the ratio between the frequencies of Op1 and Op2. so it's not bad. A final disclaimer: technically, the DX7 uses phase modulation, not frequency modulation. In fact, it’s such a faithful recreation you can actually load real DX7 patches into Dexed. Flip through and few and play them to get an idea of the sounds available. The volume of the oscillator can be set to rise or fall as you ascend through each side independently. Sadly, there's no way to have "negative rate scaling" -- the assumption, I suppose, was that people would mostly use the DX7 for emulating acoustic instruments. What you're hearing is Op1's frequency being modulated by Op2. First, set Level 1 and 2 on full, Level 3 at noon and Level 4 all the way off. Dexed can be configured to use some of the original math limitation of a DX synthesizer. This web page contains a very good discussion of all this at exactly one more level of detail than I'm going for here. The graphical interface is also nice and detailed. These are two separate sounds that get mixed at the output (remember the output is the two carriers at the bottom, Op1 and Op3). Of course these numbers represent the six oscillators. Prerequisite Before you use this interface, your DX7 must be configured to send or receive sysex messages. I started with creating the sub, then bass, and the second bass. These are very low sounds, they can be felt more with a better studio speaker or studio headphones. After this I set operator 3 to fixed. I cut the low end with EQ Three kill switch. The more you modulate an operator, the brighter and more metallic the sound becomes. FM synthesis is no more technical than any other kind, it's just a different way of thinking that takes some time to get used to. I removed the low end with EQ where it was necessary. On the right are the two things you can do with the LFO: PMD (pitch modulation, aka vibrato) and AMD (amplitude modulation, aka tremolo). Operator 2 isn't "plugged into the mixer", it's modulating the currently-inert Operator 1. This does not only apply to the DAC, it also involves the bit resolution of the sine waves and the way that the amplitude is applied to each operator. It goes well up beyond the range of human hearing, which might not seem useful but it will be later. The Chowning book is much more theoretical, with lots of math, but both use the DX7 as the point of reference, so translating to Dexed should be easy. Now Rate 1 controls -- to an extent -- how fast the note rises to Level 1, i.e. In fact, it’s such a faithful recreation you can actually load real DX7 patches into Dexed. If you turn this up, it will cause the envelope's four rates (set by the lower row of four knobs) to increase. I mixed as I went along the project, constantly adjusting volumes, EQ and some effects. Notice there is no "AMD mod sens" here -- that's because we have a separate one for each operator, called "A mod sens" in the Dexed interface. The DX7 manual is easy to find too. You use Dexed - a free VST DX7-like synth - but also has inbuilt SYSEX send/receive and library tool. Lead discussions. Actually the factory sounds that came with my TX7 in 1984, I know because the guy I bought it from told me he didn't use this to modify sounds. I amplified with 5 dB with the Utility module and then cut the top end at 12 kHz with an EQ Eight. I suggest proceeding in the same way, starting with a very simple init patch and only a couple of operators turned on, then slowly adding elements making sure you can hear and, to some degree, understand the effect at each step. Dexed is a multi platform, multi format plugin synth that is closely modeled on the Yamaha DX7. ‎A port of Dexed, a FM Synthesizer. If you just pick a whole number, you're modulating my a pitch one or more octaves away from the carrier, which produces results that retain the same pitch identity as the unmodulated carrier. I'm a European creative all-rounder working in web development, graphic design and music. The goal of this project is to be a tool/companion for the original DX7. To get started, fire up Dexed and look for this panel near the bottom left: The dropdown list next to the STORE button contains the presets in the current cart. Since we'll have to refer to specific operators a lot, let's adopt the notation Op1 for Operator 1, and so on. Xen-FMTS may be a better choice for this but I haven't dug into that yet and the project's website is dead, so Dexed is probably a better choice for getting started.). In FM parlance, the two chains of modulator->carrier are sometimes referred to as "stacks", "strips" or "stripes" (we'll use "stacks" here). We will split the full range of the keyboard into two parts, which can be unequal; the "breakpoint" slider controls where this happens. the conventional "Attack" of the ADSR. You will need a VST Host of some sort to run it within, such as a DAW like Ableton Live , Bitwig Studio, Logic Pro or Cubase etc. I'll ignore that distinction in this post. Subscribe below and we’ll send you a weekly email summary of all new Music & Audio tutorials. Turn up the level of Op2 and experiment with changing the pitch of Op2. We'll turn off Op4, Op5 and Op6. The bottom knob indicates how fast it travels from where it ended the last segment (or 0, at the start of the note) to this target level. Now turn up the feedback control. Note that the depth controls are very sensitive; turning them all the way up usually results in no sound at all anywhere in the keyboard's range. This is a phasy sounding hats loop. Host meetups. So if you're eager to get on with some actual FM synthesis, feel free to skip this section and just leave it unchanged when editing the patch. I checked the mono compatibility by turning on the Utility module for a couple of seconds. Looking to the right of this general settings panel we see three more panel that I'll discuss later: the all-important "algorithm", an LFO stage for vibrato and tremolo, and and additional pitch envelope stage. There are six operator that can be combined in the specific algorithms. Flip through and few and play them to get an idea of the sounds available. © 2021 Envato Pty Ltd. An insight into the powers of DEXED v0.8, the open-source DX7 librarian / emulator VSTi. A port of Dexed, a FM Synthesizer. The pitch section looks like this and, of course, controls the pitch of the oscillator: The crucial thing here is the switch, which toggles the oscillator between a fixed pitch and tracking what you play on the keyboard. The Dexed Best Thing One of the reasons I’m such a plugin-head is that I love to have the option to play with tonnes of different synths and effects without having to rent a warehouse to store them all! As you slowly increase the pitch, the beats get closer together until we hear them as forming a new, extra pitch: a harmonic. The trouble is, Dexed isn't particularly welcoming either. Each time I've tried to install, it is missing the ".dll" file that would allow Ableton to read it. You may very well want to attach LFOs directly to the pitches of individual oscillators, but this has to be done outside Dexed (Ableton Live, for example, makes it pretty easy). Under the hood it uses music-synthesizer-for-android for the synth engine and … The synth also features a cartridge loader popup, a parameter configuration panel and a patch storing screen. Design like a professional without Photoshop. I admit I'm not really sure why we have two controls here as both together affect the depth of modulation. Though if you overdo it, it will sound like a chaotic noise. Dexed’s synth engine is built on music-synthesizer-for-android, a music synthesizer and sequencer for Android for live performances and recording. If you flip it to "fixed", it will play the same pitch no matter what note you hit. I used only a default pure operator for the sub. The first melody line uses the notes C3, C4, D#3 and F3. Never miss out on learning about the next big thing. Gain multipliers by tagging as many enemies as possible before releasing a barrage of missiles and use your shield to defend against incoming attacks. Above that is a low pass filter ("cutoff" and "reso") along with an unrelated "tune" button that allows the overall pitch to be fine-tuned. Looking for something to help kick start your next project? For spicing it up I used a Reverb with big room size, 1.2 sec decay time and 55% dry wet with default predelay. Rate 4 controls how fast the note's volume goes to Level 4's level at the end -- since this is zero, Rate 4 is our old friend the Release of the ADSR. For example, setting them to the same pitch but then detuning one produces beat frequencies. Now glance down and to the right to find the dynamics section: This one is also pretty easy. Dexed is a Free VST Synth that is used for creating amazing sounds. Since all of this is experimental, multiple engines will be available to be able to compare them easily. Now copy the settings exactly into Op5 and Op6. There's no visial feedback for this as it happens separately for each note. You're now in a position to explore all the algorithms. There are three types of modulation: 1. serial, when one operator is modulating the other 2. parallel, when two operators are mixed separately in the patch 3. feedback or self mod, when one operator modulates itself With these two tiny building blocks you can build almost anything you'd like to have. If you don't want any effect, turn "L depth" all the way down. The sound morphs smoothly between a square wave when Op2 is at maximum, and sine when its amplitude is at zero and so no modulation is happening: Overall, though, the LFO section is nice to have but a bit underpowered. Earlier we were listening to a carrier with no modulator (Op1 only). The amplitude modulation is a bit more intuitive. The final section is perhaps the most cryptic-looking, but it's actually very straightforward. Dexed is a FM synth closely modeled on the Yamaha DX7. Now is a good moment to play with the section near the bottom right, which contains a pretty basic LFO: On the left are the basic controls for the LFO: the waveform, speed (rate) and a "delay" parameter that lets you ramp up the LFO gradually starting from the note onset. The sound uses the default algorithm and settings. The number 2 should light up on the grid: The output is at the bottom of the screen; "modulation" flows downwards and the bottom row of boxes get mixed together in the normal way. Finally, I cut the low and high end with EQ Eight and increased the sides / stereo to 133%. One easy way to expand what we've been doing so far is to layer two or three versions of it together. Combining with the previous sound it give more stereo width. These are probably best thought of as extra things to add to your FM synthesis toolkit once you've got the hang of the basics. It has a sound engine that's capable of a very decent emulation of a real DX7, if that's what you're into, but it can also do anything else that can be done with any an FM synth of the same capabilities. But now my problem/question. This post contains some basics about making sounds with Dexed; the stuff you need to start getting a grip on it and make sounds you more or less intended to. This does not only apply to the DAC, it also involves the bit resolution of the sine waves and the way that the amplitude is applied to each operator. Here's one way to set things up. (Incidentally, Dexed doesn't support Scala tunings so you're stuck with sending MIDI pitch change messages in mono mode if you need something other than 12TET. Check they sound the same. The second operator is modulating the first operator. I'll use panning occasionally like if I'm using 2 hats or claps layered I'll pan one slightly left/right but not really at all these days, or I'll pan backing vocals left and right sometimes. For seasoning the sound I used a Flanger mixed with 49% dry wet, then I applied a Ping Pong Delay with 33% feedback and 33% dry wet. The DX7 came out in 1983 and was a huge seller and was responsible for many of the iconic sounds of '80s electro-pop, but it was also an incredibly sophisticated synth engine. The sound is designed to be a small sine wavy thing, but on the effects side I used an agressive distortion with the Saturator effect (Rectifier preset, +15 dB gain and hard curve), then there is a Reverb set to mono with the lowest room size and 1.2 sec decay mixed with 25% dry wet. A conga/bongo loop which I mixed to the right and cut the low end. Besides its destination as virtual instrument by itself, the target of this project is to be a companion of the original DX7. A couple of PDFs to look for are "The Complete DX7" by Howard Massey and "FM Theory and Applications" by John Chowning. Dexed Free FM VST Synth Plugin. The trouble with the DX7 was that it was notoriously unfriendly to programme. Once you've made sense of one of them the others are all the same. Op1, the carrier, has a quick attack that dies to nothing, like a piano. In a DAW you should be able to route more fully-featured LFOs into Dexed to get the same effects with a lot more flexibility, enabling you to create some nice, slowly-shifting textures. This makes the oscillator follow the note being played, which is usually what you want. Design templates, stock videos, photos & audio, and much more. If your ratio has a fractional part, you're adding "inharmonic" information that will likely make your sound "gritty" or "discordant". Rate 3 is similar; it effectively gives you a second decay stage, taking you from Level 2 to Level 3. I turned it off and cut the low end at 40 Hz in mid and 300 Hz in side mode with EQ Eight. Both can be found as PDFs online and are still worth seeking out, although Chowning's book is only really worth having if you enjoy lots of mathematics. It's a good idea to sit with it for a while before moving on to more complicated setups. For example, if Op1 is set to 1 and Op2 set to 2, you should get a sawtooth; move Op2 up to 3 and you'll get a square wave.
