i am Andre from TubeOhm and yes , i also use Shruthi and like it very much. So we build a Midi controller for Shruthi.
But it is not only a Shruthi MIDI controller. It is a Controller with an internal STEP SEQUENZER/GATER, an ARP, and a Effect unit with EQ, Distortion, PHASER, CHORUS,Delay and REVERB. Works as a VST insert and standalone.
In the standalone Version you can use Shruthi with the Effects and the Stepper/ARP. Implement the Controller for example in Cubase is tricky because of the MIDI routing, but it works also.
The release is in January 2013 . First infos on TubeOhm.com
You can save/load/edit patches for Shruthi direct on the PC. Sorry MAC user, for PC only…
The Sequencer has two CC lines for control Shruthi via CC 2 of 32 Parameter. We have build in a ratchet mode and the Stepper is also polyphon, this if you want to control other synths.
The Shruthi Controller can control all function of Shruthi exept the in build Shruthi Stepper. You can choose the mod matrix (12)and you have 4 free programmable Knobs for different additional MIDI CC’s.
All Shruthi values are shown direct into the Controller ’ LCD’.
The best is , you can route Shruthi into the 6 EFFECTS. This pushes the sounds.
All functions works with NRPN parameter , exept the 4 free prog Knobs. This was hard stuff and hard do to.
If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact us:::: Kontakt@TubeOhm.com
Hope you like it.
PS: back too the roots, Shruthi reminds me on my first self build Synth – Transcendent 2000 … 30 years before. But Shruthi sounds better and had more functions Thanks Olivier…
