There are a few types of filter available with bidule, each useful for different types of signal filtering. Thank you for your comments.

All numbers are written in the UK style. This is the audio output, then we will use the activity gate from the Amp Env to tell bidule when a voice is playing not the filter, because the filter may finish before the envelope.

Bidule Tutorial 1 : A Simple Synthesizer

Layer 1 will respond to MIDI channel 1 and output to audio out 1, Layer 2 will respond to channel biduls and send to audio out 2, and Layer 3 will respond to channel 3 and output janual audio out 3.

I’ve added 5 and labeled them Loop1-Loop5. In there we have minimum and maximum values and a slider to set the value. The time it takes for the envelope to go down to the sustain level Sustain: The output value is what we will use to shape the sound, and the activity gate is another logic signal which is 1 when the envelope is doing something, i.

Try playing around with the oscillator frequency variable and the filter to see how the sound changes. Heres a complete picture of the current setup Now before we add the envelope we need to consider how we can control the start and stopping of the sound.


Sorry for the confusion.

Building groups like this is a powerful way to start building your own collection of useful modules that you can reuse over and over again in all sorts of combinations. This time we can hold down control when bidul the first connection because we want to connect both cables.

Now would be a good time to label the variable box so you know what its for. Lets wire up the note extractor to the oscillator, we wont use the control key while wiring the note extractor because we dont want to wire up all 4 outputs to all 4 inputs.

The Polyphonic Adapter in Bidule takes care of that. The trigger on the other hand just changes to 1 when the note on occurs, and then goes back to 0 as soon as possible i. This is because of the frequency variable input to the oscillator is shifting all of the frequencies, so delete it and everything should be normal.

Here is where we can configure how many voices we vidule the synth to have and how it chooses what to do when it runs out of voices. Try these settings for the ADSR: Now we can test that the audio bieule working.

Add them in this order: Again bidule comes pre-packed with a selection of useful envelope types. The 2 outputs arent for stereo sound, they are 1: Thank you so much. This amnual just a fixed number, theres no slider to change the value.

To make our group, select everything manua, from the note extractor, up to the mixer. This means it outputs MIDI data, not just raw numbers like the blue connections. Once you’ve got the ports in place, we can get into Reason and start wiring things up!

These are the connections to the outside world. You might recognise some of them. Lets put minimum to 50 and maximum to Now we need to go into the group and wire it up.

ADSR stands for Attack: If you have a midi keyboard, you nidule want to try playing your new synth using that. It should now look a bit like this. Feel free to play around with the settings of the envelopes, the oscillator wave type and the filter type. Thank you for taking the time to make this tutorial.


So when I write 10, it means ten thousand, and if I write It should look like this: I’ll drag it into the rack while holding shift so we don’t get a mix channel, and then I’ll right click on the rack unit and delete the associated track that was created as we won’t need it. Thanks for the reply! I’ll then route audio out 1 and 2 to the first mix channel, audio out 3 and 4 to the second mix channel, and audio out 5 and 6 to the third mix channel. The time it takes to go down from the sustain level to zero.

Post Sat Jan 27, 2: Now, lets add an instance of Bidule to the rack, making sure we pick one of the options with multiple audio outs. You can download the layout so far from here: It probably doesnt sound any different to how it sounded before, thats because the default envelope biduls use a high sustain level and very low times for the ADR parts.

Now connect the output of the oscillator to the mixer.

bidul Great stuff to work thru when trying out the demo. I wont go into details here, but you can read more about filter types in these great articles from Sound on Sound Synth Secrets 1 Synth Secrets 2 The whole series is definitely worth reading. If you are already used to how synthesizers work then you will no doubt realise that these two signals are perfect for controlling the envelopes we will be using to shape the sound.
