Guys,

A free patch of mine to show you how to do 3/4 timing using a Wavetable of three!  It uses all standard unify instruments and MIDI!!

 

Update 1: I have since tuned the patch and added a second Patch that includes the use of a vocoder so you can substitute should you wish to do so!

 

Update 2:

I have now attached it them as a zip for the future archive as I didn't want to leave my Dropbox on here.  Place the two files within the

UserLibrary/Patches folder and put Waltz in the search text and you should find them.

Enjoy guys!

 

 
Update 3: Final one!!
 
This includes several macros to tweak your own taste on the instruments and edited macros to stop the sounds over driving.  
 
Macro 1 : Changes the Pattern Speed
Macro 2 : Adjusts the depth of Pump House
Macro 3 : Adjust MIDI Velocities
Macro 4 : Strings Attack
Macro 5 : Strings Release
Macro 7 : Delay FX
Macro 8 : Reverb FX
 
Enjoy

Thanks, good idea @chrisg-uk and unusual to find anything in 3/4.

You're welcome.  It was a request from Daniela so I helped out in a live broadcast.  If you increase the layers to say 6 or 12 in poly box then you can make different subtle rhythms with 3/4 timing.  When you extend the release or soften the attack it works quite well also.

Try duplicating the three layers and make a variant inside the guru sampler that makes it subtly different.  I have done a few patches since then and they sound excellent with Skippy's Strings.

If you want to change the feel you can also assign some but not all of the layers.  For example make 4 layers but set them to channels 1,3,4 and 6 accordingly and you get different rhythms without the excess usage of extra layers. Or even make the first hit a bigger instrument by assigning Channel 1 to the first two layers!  That's the beauty of Unify, experimentation.

Enjoy! 🤩

@chrisg-uk  Thanks, I will certainly give those ideas a try 👍

I was interested in seeing how you constructed the patches. I can see why you used ComboBox for the vocoder patch but wasn't sure why you did for the Waltz for Daniela patch. Maybe you have a standard Unify top layer with ComboBox, effects etc set up as a kind of template upon which you can base a number of patches. That makes a lot of sense even though ComboBox might not be doing much in every patch other than, say, holding another Unify instance and routing the MIDI and audio.

I think I did it out of simplicity.  The main instance of the Unify preset contains the effects and so this is easier to change the 'Unify Instrument' layer with whatever you like.  It is easier to load from a previously saved preset without layer faffing.  Obviously you have to watch your macros inside the imbedded Unify as to not clash with the main outer FX macros.
