Make Noise QPAS: Quad Peak Animation System


#81

wow… this sounds so gorgeous. this def gives me some good ideas for my sisters! can’t wait to hear what yall come up with using QPAS.


#82

Will definitely have to try feeding the 4 outs from QPAS through a Sisters just to see what that feels like…


#83

Info about the video from Walker:

90% of the video is just a square wave from the DPO straight into the Left input of the QPAS. The only real exceptions to that are the “Ping” section where it’s a gate stream from MATHS, the “stereo-to-stereo/stereo-to-mono” patch that puts the DPO’s Sawtooth in the other input, and the “sweetener” section near the end where I used a loop from Morphagene as the source.

Giving me GAS for three more sisters.


#85

ahhh man … preordered ***20 characters


#86

yoooooooo was thinking i needed a second sisters but like… WOW.


#87

Live event (assumig the stream gets started) at PCA to show off the module.


#88

From the live stream: Shipping early February (tentatively the 12th).


#89

Listening to the MN demo with headphones did me in.
As soon as I have recovered financially from my latest business/life choices, I’m buying one of these. I was so close to being out of euro, too.


#90

tony demoing smile pass with alice coltrane gave me a huge grin


#91

demoing anything with Alice Coltrane is just cheating… couldn’t make it sound bad if you tried :wink:


#92

I was there in person. Should have stayed home and worn headphones. (the room wasn’t great for stereo imaging)


#93

You can always check the video online. You can’t be there a second time (and get a free t-shirt)!

Yeah, I pre-ordered. :sigh:

I was a little disappointed that they have been playing up QPAS as stereo without giving examples of a dual mono application. Surely it would be a great way to mix and spectrally isolate two voices?


#96

This looks and sounds great. Just trying to get my head round what it actually does :grinning:

So each channel (L+R) is a dual multi-mode filter, and ‘radiate’ controls the spacing between the dual filters cutoff on each L+R channel (like the span control on 3 Sis)?

Luckily for my wallet I don’t have space for this (and am quite happy with 3 Sis and its spectral mixing joys for now).


#97

Walker Farrell mentioned he was going to show that in an upcoming video.

I’m also curious about patching it in serial, cross-feedback, self-patching etc.


#98

Im wondering about this too, they explicitly mention its possible to control all four filter cores so both radiate parameters control one filter core plus the center freq just makes for 3 positions?
Wheres number 4?

Ah wait i get it. Radiate 1 moves filter 1 up and filter 2 down while radiate 2 moves filter 3 up and filter 4 down, ofc this works also the other way around.
Freq just offsets the whole ensemble
Ingenious!


#99

Lord QPAS or QPASimodo sounding great :heart: Filters in Stereo and Analogue domain are scarce in Proaudio, i could easily imagine this liked by Producers and Mixers alike.
And i‘m still quite intrigued abt the RXMX-this is a concept i never scoped before

Some parallels between QPAS’s radiate controls and Three Sisters’ SPAN. Hordijk’s Twinpeak generally keeps its two peaks independent. A unit like the QMMF-4 is mostly just a block of four separate filter modules behind one faceplate: you can control them (and pitch each) independently, but the downside to that approach is you pretty much have to control them independently.
