messages at signal rate/low quality vibrato in vst
Dec 05 2015 | 12:13 pm
I'm using some Reaktor oscillators as a vst inside Max. The frequency is determined by the max patch and sent over to Reaktor. When I add a fixed vibrato to the oscillator inside the Reaktor vst itself, it sounds very nice. But when I try to make the same vibrato by adding the 'vibrato' (LFO) to the number stream in Max, which is then sent over to Reaktor, the quality just isn't the same. Most likely this is caused because the frequency-parameter of the Reaktor vst is controlled by Max's messages of which only a 1000 can be sent every second. When I program the vibrato in Reaktor itself, it works at a much higher resolution, right?
My problem is that I would like to make the vibrato myself (ribbon controller) so the vibrato can't be programmed. Is there a way to make Max send messages (the frequencies for the oscillator) at the signal rate?
