I’ve been working long hours on getting the next Valhalla DSP plugin out to beta testers. Today, I decided to convert some of the parameters to use percentages instead of just going from 0.0 to 1.0. Apparently I goofed up the math. Here’s what got barfed out of the plugin:
This is NOT what the plugin is supposed to sound like. This is a nasty, brutal bug. So I’m going to include it as a mode, alongside all the non-busted modes.
To quote Brian Eno:
“Honour thy error as a hidden intention.”
Another Oblique Strategies quote, that is equally appropriate:
“Work at a different speed.”
EDIT, 9 YEARS LATER: This ended up being the OverMod control in ValhallaÜberMod. I had been working with the Mod Depth control, which works in a range from 0-100%. I forgot to scale that down to the 0.0-1.0 parameter range the plugin was expecting. The results were weird enough that we moved it to a dedicated control!
