I've removed the automation recorder for now, it needs many changes and didnt feel up to that lately.

I did fix some bugs tho, made a couple of new modules and some changes to existing modules.

See http://bluehell.electro-music.com/wren/#changes for details.

Nice version.

The SeqValues is a cool variation of SeqPattern.

Several new modules to play around with, very cool.

And another one new update, 2019-.6.9.0... I've broken some stuff ...

Legacy audio is no longer supported, can do PortAudio only now.

Changed the AR envlopes in how they behave with time modulation, that may break patches which were using time modulation.

Added some new functions to the Monadic and Dyadic modules, old patches may select the wrong function now.

But also added some new stuff and fixed some bugs. Two new speach modules, two new Life variants, a voltage controlled pattern generator, an auto quantizer ... for a full report see https://www.bluehell.nl/wren/forums.html#changes

and for downloads https://www.bluehell.nl/wren/forums.html#top .

To use the eSpeak module you will have to download and install eSpeak ( http://espeak.sourceforge.net/download.html ) I've included the eSpeak DLL in the wren non-source zip, but it really needs some stuff to beinstalled to to be able to find any voices.

The eSpeak installation can also install some new SAPI voices, which can be used by the new SAPI speech module.

My website seems to have connectivity issues ... sorry about that .. working on it .. and meanwhile will monitor it to bring it up when I see it being off line. I should move it over from adsl to the fiber connection, but the domain registrar (xs4all) is not very cooperative and the adsl guys (novo) are a disaster too :?

Hmm .. I can just upload the stuff to here to I guess ... okay ..

The currently latest version (2019.6.9.0) seems to crash in the startup when eSpeak is not installed (while espeak_sapi.dll is present) .. when you do not wish to install espeak, renaming or removing the dll might help ... I'll try to come up with a solution for this issue soon.

When you do want to use eSpeak (for the new speech modules) you can download it from: http://espeak.sourceforge.net/

Half a year later already .. quite some changes .. so time for an update. 2019.11.11.0 (source code was updated as well).

Fixed the eSpeak issue mentioned above .. and a handfull of other nuisances. Then added some new stuff to some old modules and some new modules.

see https://bluehell.nl/wren/#changes for the full story.
see https://bluehell.nl/wren/#top for the downloads.

The summary :

* Over 300 module types now :-)
* Removed all support for legacy audio - only PortAudio can be used now - it was too much fuzz to keep legacy going.
* eSpeak bug fixed, to use eSpeak you will need to install it ( http://espeak.sourceforge.net/download.html )
* ProgDivider bug fixed.
* (De)Multiplexer oddities worked out
* A handfull of range errors and division by zero issues fixed.
* Allowed for quotes in patch names, patch comments and module titles.
* Copying of modules from one Wren instance to another would kill the settings for the tuning, fixed that.
* Looper, StereoLooper and WavePlayerwould not produce sound as long as the speed and the position inputs were left unconnected, changed that.
* The Constant, SeqValues, Lut and Knobs4 modules would loose knob and slider values when set to Note mode on patch reload or module copy/paste - fixed now.
* SeqValues module had wrongly colored dots, changed that.
* Vocoder squeal at 1/3 ofthe sample rate worked out.
* WavePlayer rate will now be correct on different sytem rates.
* VU meter updates made independent of the rate at which module lights were updated.
* Added an activation input to the eSpeak module.
* Added inverted outputs to a bunch of modules.
* Added changed outputs to a couple of modules, going active when the output value changes.
* AM modulation added to a handful of modules.
* Module feedback added to the history viewer, to see the selected module in the patch.
* Added filter mode to the PulseDelay, a non retriggerable delay mode.
* Added a PADSynth-like module.
* Added a GrainDelay module - which grains nicer than the existing ones, with less CPU used too - and that was module type 300!
* Added a MinMaxMix module, after an idea found here on the forums.
* Added a detector module - it outputs instantaneous amplitude, phase and frequency.
* Added a PhaseSplitter - with a sine input it generates a sine / cosine pair.
* Added an AbsAdder module, the sum of positive input values only.
* Added a DTMF tone generator.
* Added two Xenakis like number sieve modules.

Nope, Wren is not a nord clone.

From the FAQ :

Quote:
Wren is a monophonic synth. Still you can of course have multiple sounds or even multiple synths by patching them. The MIDI interface will need to work on a different channel though for each voice added this way, as it can handle only one note at a time. I've added a four channel MIDI input module to allow for manual patching of a fourfold poly synth.
