I have an update once more.
I think this is the last update before version2,
which will happen when the source can be opened in Flowstone retail.
It seems to work fine now,
I have been dealing with confirmation bias for years-
ie. being sure my latest trick has got it,
hmm maybe it's a fine instrument now
If you'd like try it again 8D
I had to take away the sine oscillator,
it created instability on held notes.
The x64 .dll is once again included.

I will be attempting to make impressive demos, now that it's finished(again hah :D ).

I have had 8 custom breakout boxes made. They are a simple affair- and we can make more now more easily after the first run. They are wall outlet powered, and feature highest quality 13 pin jacks. I'll up a couple of photos of my current setup now that I have locked it down, including the box. The plugins are designed for an active Roland GK3 hex pickup.

Hope you enjoy my lengthy project-
and good times all

oh thanks!
It made one mistake about 1/3 way through-
just tweaking this trigger mode which is used for piano/plucks and sounds with release
I think one fix will quash that fluke some
Cheers 8D

1992 up
see first post 8D

I focussed on the harmonic in this release.
Although by default, all the notes contain a lot of first harmonic content,
all but the 5th and 7th fret can be sufficiently mitigated.
So instead of an across the board harmonic quashing-
the 7th particularly has been adjusted for.
I can nearly make it impossible to play the harmonic intentionally,
but this is not great,
coz the high notes cease to register to a degree.
Instead of allowing the high notes to all play in a chord of open and 24th fret,
I have blocked the 7th fret(a fifth) harmonic as much as I can,
while allowing the fret 24 to play when not in a chord with an open string.
The GK3, although amazing,
does bleed between pickups some. The chord causes the fret 24 to play less than 100% of the time.
It is a compromise, but I'm finding it necessary atm.
If you'd like to try it, the unruly harmonic at 7th is tamed as much as possible.
It can be tried by playing the 5th & 7th fret harmonics intentionally.
The fifth will now not play at all now I think, no matter how sweet u hit it.
Please try again, this compromise may remain though.

Also- I tweaked the trig mode to be true to pitch better,
just sorta put the filters in a better rough config for the mode

Rock on!

1993 up
It has full range again 8D
I got a bit of the harmonic quash working.
Maybe it's novel-
I call it an auto-compensatory subtraction filter
The fifth and seventh fret harmonics are damped a lot more, while preserving the ~22 fret over open chord
The Reaktor ensemble also has been updated
njoy!

v2 up!
I used also a half band band pass to mitigate the harmonic

There is a new build for Reaktor called FretKeys, which is AMDF based and plays differently

All my strings are flat wound C-strings(note 48, .711mm, 028 gauge) now

hope ur digging' it -Nick

Hiya,
new build up for the Windows VSTfx

I have taken down the source coz I have had a real nice surprise making a ts guitar lead connection into a poly synth.
I am going to try make a professional go of it.

The hex builds are still available for Windows, but I wanted to pull the source,
as hopefully I can become a little pro outfit.

njoy the guitar tek as always 8D
