<br></div><br>Anyway, if you put a Envelope over the StifKarp and pluck it with some very, very low frequencies, then re-tune to something reasonable while ramping up the envelope (without plucking again!) you get the nicest evolving textures while the whole system re-ballances itself. Lots of fun at only ten or so lines of code. I have yet to get into some of the more advanced parameters of StifKarp I think a lot more could be done with it... And there are still some STK instruments I didn't even try, it's like a treasure trove of fun stuff!. So far I think my favourite is the Shakers, the Shakers is/are perfect for doing wat I call "gremlin techno"; techno as played by a ensemble of Gremlins that broke into a garage.
