We even made a video demonstrating bass guitar tracking, in which we explained that for best tracking, the user needs to adjust the LPF in real time using a dedicated expression pedal we provided on the Squaver P1 for this purpose, opening the filter for higher notes and closing it for lower notes. While this did solve the problem, we were never quite satisfied with this approach as it required a good bit of maneuvering from the musician, who might rather concentrate on simply playing music.
All this time, we found ourselves asking the question: What if the filter could be automatically tuned to track the fundamental frequency of the input? It seemed like a pipe dream for months, but barely one week ago, we came up with the missing link needed to make the frequency-tracking input LPF work. We modified one ConVertor and one Squaver P1 PCB, cutting some traces, adding some wires and changing some component values, and when we heard the results, to be honest, we couldn’t believe our ears! The frequency tracking was made MUCH more reliable by our new dynamically-tuned filter.
But don’t take our words for it. We decided to record a video demo illustrating the difference in sound between the old and new ConVertor (we decided to show the comparison with the ConVertor for simplicity, although the Squaver P1 will have the same improvements). See for yourselves:
And now we REALLY can’t wait to hear all of you start Squaving!
