ig'nant waveguide mesh sounds like Sir Nose D'Voidoffunk
  • I figured out how they made the Sir Nose voice on this Parliament classic:

    but totally by accident, LOL.

    The explanation of Karplus-Strong in this thread:

    http://forum.audulus.com/discussion/1227/help-moving-from-nodes-to-modules

    got me thinking about how it might be possible to expand the idea into three dimensions to model a vibrating membrane like a drum head instead of a string. Which led me to here:

    however, the math was a little over my head ... so I just got busy building a matrix of 9 delays with a bandpass filter on the feedback lines. Which I'm pretty sure is not exactly a waveguide mesh as described in that article, but it makes interesting noises. :-)

    Also its real trigger happy on the feedback when you bring the Q down on the filter so watch out if you play with this.
    Anyhow ... yeah ... I accidentally discovered the Sir Nose effect.

    Thought y'all might could dig it.
