Finally I got around to implementing my version of a Karplus-Strong type oscillator for the Korg *logue series.

Karplus Strong Oscillator

A Karplus-Strong oscillator is an oscillator, that creates a musical tone through a tuned feedback. It is fed by a burst of noise and then harmonizes the initial chaos through the tuned feedback loop.

The feedback loop is controlled by a low pass filter and also by an attenuator.

As initial exiter for the feedback loop, there is of course a white noise burst. In addition you can blend the noise over to one of 94 waveforms, coming from the internal wavetable.

Besides the initial exiter you have the possibility to add a continuous exciter to the oscillator. Again this can be a blend of noise and the selected waveform.

Last but not least the frequency of the exciter waveform can be altered (20 = in tune with the oscillator) to change the timbre of the continuous signal.

Try to set param1 (pluck) to somewhere between 90 – 99, param2 (vol) to around 50 and param3 (freq) to 12. Play it in the base range and please feel free to leave a comment.
