hello friends! I am happy to announce that after 10 years of development, my project bespoke synth is finally ready for its full 1.0.0 release on mac, windows, and linux. you can get it for free at bespokesynth.com
if you think bespoke is cool, come join the bespoke synth discord at discord.gg/YdTMkvvpZZ, where I hope to form a community of users to share what they're doing with bespoke, and help drive the directions that bespoke should develop
(a big thank you to my prerelease discord users, by the way, for helping me to get bespoke ready for 1.0.0!)
my big push in bespoke for the past year has been to add documentation for every single module and control. a massive side effect of documenting a project this huge was that I had to look at every nook and cranny in bespoke, and fix all of the broken stuff I found!
this new release of bespoke is now fully documented, very cleaned up, and chock full of new features and modules. I'll continually update this thread with a series of videos that show off some of these new features.
simultaneously the most significant and most boring new feature: bespoke is now fully documented via "tooltip mode". hover over any module, and it explains what it does and offer tips. hover over any control on a module, and it explains that control. 1,167 tooltips in all!
I updated the algorithm of karplus/strong synthesis module, and it sounds so nice now. I also added a bunch of controls and MPE support. I'm really proud to have written some DSP that sounds this nice without external reverb applied!
one new feature of the karplus/strong module is that it can take external audio input, rather than just its internal oscillators. this allows you to do some pretty neat stuff, like exciting the karplus/strong physical model with drums:
another new addition to bespoke: VST3 hosting! wanna bring together @matttytel's incredible Vital synth with @valhalladsp's awe-inspiring ValhallaRoom reverb? you can do it in bespoke!

livecoding in bespoke progress: I found a nice way to do tidalcycles-like patterns using python lists and tuples!

here's a "cover" of @lildata's avril 14th tweet which is what inspired this whole livecoding endeavor for me
some cool things about this:
1. it's all using normal python structures: lists are sequences subdivided over the specified time, tuples are processed in parallel (for allow for chords or parallel sequences). this means I can take advantage of native python list/tuple features!
