I sincerely do not want to keep you away from your work, but can you expound on the "kernels" modeling a little bit please.

Keep up the great work!!

It is a way of modeling _non-linear_ systems by taking measurements and defining parameters for a model to actually replicate original system's behaviour.

The well known fantastic Nebula uses Volterra Kernels, which are dynamic (multiple) FIR filters associated to each active harmonic (the kernels). We are using a similar but really different kind of modeling to get rid of latency and huge databases.
Also they are not used on a "black box" and automated basis (when you just look at input and output of a system or sub-system, e.g. when you extract impulse response from a linear system) but as part of analog modeling, always through somebody looking at diagrams and tuning it manually.

The result is still lightweight and smooth effects but a more "organic" sound.

This all sounds very exciting indeed. Looking forward to this - and everything you're producing!

Wow Quinto the new kernal system sounds really cool! Seeing as how you've said in the past the Roundtone is one of your favorite emulations, it'll be very exciting to hear!

Hi Quinto,

Do you have any newsupdate of Roundtone or Strip? I'm very curious about the update.
Ciao!

Someone mentioned something about makeupgain in the Strip's thread before.
How am I supposed to make up the gain loss after the compression again, is it just in using the fader?
I assume the fader is post EQ and dynamics section?

I love the sound of the expander/gate, compressor has also a nice character.

Benny.

Yes, I agree, I can't do without a separate makeup control.
So I added it. You'll find it in the update, which also replaces v.2.

Roundtone is tough but I feel it's something really special. I know I can just go the "easy route" with TB Reelbus - with its intuitive and proper tape controls - and get amazing results instantly but something just keeps pulling me back to RT. If I can get it to work for individual tracks with Reelbus on busses/master I think something very wicked will happen

Think I've found the magic settings for drum multitrack tape. I wanted to stick to using the same tape machine for all the drum tracks so I tried to find a global setting that would suit them all: 30ips hard, Speed 80, Action 30, Emphasis 60, with the B-EXP engaged for select tracks to taste, input/output also adjusted for individual tracks and also a little bit of noise. This gave me something comparable to "Professional Tape" preset on Reelbus but a bit punchier and darker. I could probably get away with more Action since I will compensate later for high loss but this is a great starting point

Hi Quinto,

How are things going on Roundtone and Strip V3? I'm having high expectations considering the great stuff you developed earlier this year. Can you release a glimps of the new Roundtone GUI to us curious GS?

Strip v.3 coming out the first. I redesigned the interface to get it bigger but fit in the screen.
Roundtone is great but I clearly overloaded things this year so I'm showing a preview of the new version soon

Hi Quinto,

I saw the preview of the new GUI somewhere... it looks slick!
Any idea when the release could take place (without being unpolite) ?

Greetz, Benny.

I promised it a long time ago, but my excess of enthusiasm got me overloaded

Also great discoverings about emulation made me work on it before releasing v.4.

If I'll be able to release AAX really soon (it is the highest priority now) it could come out next Feb.

Hi Quinto, if Roundtone is planned for February, will Disto update come before that or after?

Strip absolutely before Roundtone.
This v.3 being halfway is a total pity.

We are working on a few tracking and mixes to get Strip v.3 running 100% with great demos and tutorials on real life use.

I think the most confusing thing about Roundtone is, what do the percentages really represent? When I'm on 20% Action, it is 20% relative to what? To the actual (hypothetical) machine? Does that mean 100% speed/action/emphasis represents what a real machine would do? (or double, or triple, or don't the numbers work that way at all?)

Those are controls on internal emulation parameters, instead of more "marketing style" and somehow limited references e.g. to specific tape formula. That's why there are not units, it is because they don't have perceptual meaning.
