BB17 Binaural Auv3 Synth by Paul Wand

Paul Wand released BB17 Binaural Auv3 Synth and it nearly slipped past me! This new AUv3 synth has been getting a lot of updates since its release last month. BB17 Binaural is designed to be experimental, and from the demo I found I think it accomplished that.

BB17 Binaural Auv3 Synth

High fidelity synthesizer designed for generating binaural beats and exploring alternate temperments.

[Tone Generation]. (additive & precise)

Lowercase indicates an additive oscillator:
This method of waveform production allowed for a softer sound on the high end while maintaining the distinctive feel of these classic waveforms.

- [saw]
The additive sawtooth wave is generated by adding all the overtones one through 17.

The additive square wave is generated by adding all the odd overtones 1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 & 17.

Uppercase indicates a precise oscillator:

f(x)= x - floor(x)

f(x)= absolute value of [SAW]

f(x)= x < 0.0f ? -1.0f : 1.0f

The precise oscillators are calculated with their respective equations. I found these sound a nice and lush when under the low pass filter. Try setting all oscillators to SAW and adding some detune for the classic SuperSaw effect!

[Binaural Beats]

The Binaural Slider to the left of the oscilloscope Will offset the right speaker by the amount of HZ listed above it.
This enables the generation and experimentation of binaural beats for scientific and recreational purposes.

Presets for alpha, beta, gamma, tau & delta waves are included.

7 Currently Available Temperaments:

[12 tone Equal Temperament]
Standard Tuning with A at 440hz since 1926

[5 Tone Pentatonic]
Just intonated Major Pentatonic

[7 Tone Harmonic]
Just Intonated Arabic double harmonic minor scale

[12 tone Just Intonatation ]
The twelve tones western listeners are normally familiar with pitched by just ratios and based off a selectable root note.

[17 Tone Arabic]
Arabic Scale Quarter tone Scale, typically 7 are chosen from this set for a modal piece)

[22 Shruti Indian]
Much like the Arabic scale often a subset of notes is chosen for a piece.

[43 Tone Parch]
Harry Parch was a pioneer in microtonal music and an avid instrument maker. This temperament with a Root note of G and Root Frequency of 392 hz allows parch fans to compose for the chromelodeon on the go.
