Gyuto Monks Emulation

Nov 18th, 2021

This is my attempt at a SuperCollider emulation of Peter Blasser’s Gyuto Monks solar powered drone circuit, recorded with two instances in stereo.

The SynthDef is as follows:

SynthDef(\gyuto, { arg bp, r, hm, out;
  var amp = LFTri.ar(r);
  var p = bp + LFNoise0.ar(r, 4);
  var w = LFTri.ar(0.3, 0, 0.3);
  var osc = Pulse.ar(p + w, 0.9);
  var fosc = RLPF.ar(osc, p * 3, 1, 0.2);
  var fosc2 = RLPF.ar(osc, p * hm, 0.05, 0.2);
  Out.ar(out, (fosc + fosc2) * amp);
}).add;

To use this SynthDef, create an instance with a low frequency (bp), slow amplitude rate (r), and set the overtone to 1.5, 3, or 6 (hm) for perfect-fifths.

The full source code used to create this recording can be found here.
