This is an example, demonstration patch, though fully functional in its own right, demonstrating the use of the fx1000 multi-effects pedal abstraction (included in the zip where more details about it are available in its -help file).

Like its predecessor, the fx600, the fx1000 is a cheap, fast, and easy to use multieffects abstraction (though including 10 not 6 effects) that, when combined, can easily create wonderful, highly complex, and original sounds. Each fx1000 includes: chorus, delay, distortion, flanger, phaser, pitchshifter, reverb, tremelo, vcf, and vibrato.

The s3s includes:

  1. a sample or adc~ toggle, which sets whether to receive audio~ from a sample (.wav) file or adc~;
  2. a sample player, with both a short, default (Pachabel's Canon) sample for testing and an openpanel to either test or even edit and remaster tracks;
  3. presets (for all three pedals) via savepanel and openpanel. There is no need to navigate anywhere to save the preset, just click "SAVE", enter a filename, and click "Save" (they are all stored in the fx1000/presets folder with a prefix in the format "pedal1effect-pedal2effect-pedal3effect"+whatever you entered). Note: you Do need to navigate to that folder to load a preset;
  4. a parallel or serial selector which either sums, i.e. +~ all three effects, or serializes them, audio~>1>2>3>masterout~;
  5. a transport control (abs) for recording your work, which includes fadein and fadeout bangs and times(ms) which starts recording from env~=0 and then sends a line~ ramp up to 0.9 or vice versa sends line~ down then stops recording when env~=0. Recordings are saved at fx1000/recordings.

If you just turn dsp one and click the "PLAY" toggle, it will play the default(loadbang) voice (3 choruses).

I can't play guitar very well. But I really wish I could, because I would really like to be able to use this patch to its full potential. Which is where you come in. :-).

I would Really like to see/hear what I good guitarist can do with a pedal board of 3 multifxs.

Please, do drop me a line or link if you use it or even just experiment with/test it.

I hope you find it easy to use and understand, rich in the amount of possibilities it (compactly) opens up, and able to free you up to do the really important thing, which is you making music (not programming pd :-).

Let me know if you have any problems getting it to work or there are issues with it and I'll help you or fix them as soon as I can.

Peace and Love through Music.


p.s. one really fun thing to do is set it to "Parallel", then "R"andomly set the 3 pedals, and switch to Series, and tweak the knobs. Parallel allows you to hear each one, while Series allows you to hear the...whacked out...result. If it's cool, just save it with a name. Watch out though, it is limiter~ed but random results for distortion can be quite noise~y.
