Padthv1 demonstration song

In another forum we occasionally challenge each other to write songs to a theme. Currently the theme is ‘General Election’. As I recently found a whole heap of presets for padthv1 I thought I’d challenge myself to only use that. This is my entry.

Fixed! Thank you.


All zynthian born sounds?

Yes, all using the padthv1 synth. Arranged in Ardour.

Nice. Open source all the way!

I’m not posting any more music than I’ve already linked on the subject.

Sorry it wasn’t a request for music it was more an instant reaction. I’ve just spent a weekend bellringing in Dublin and it was what we got asked about . . . (and the rugby)
I’ll have a think about a submission.

Interesting atmosphere … I can’t stop listening … jeje … did you get your inspiration in the “Brexit ambient”? Perhaps i should search for inspiration in the “Catalunyan Process” …

BTW, how did you convert the padthv1 presets? By hand or do you write another converter? I didn’t found it in your gitlab …

The presets aren’t in my gitlab, they’re in your github!

You should have a look in there from time to time, there’s good stuff! :laughing:

I did it every day or so … but normally don’t write an answer until i’m back to my Barcelona’s headquarters.

Of course, i saw your fantastic contribution in the issue tracker and i’m crazy for returning and integrating everything. I can’t sleep at night … believe me!! :crazy_face:

But my question was if you also have a “preset converter” for padthv1. I would like to integrate your preset converter for synthv1 in the new webconf’s preset manager, and of course, i would love to do the same for padthv1, Dexed, Raffo, etc … so you can upload the native presets and get it converted to LV2, ready to use with zynthian

OH! No, I did it the hard way. I loaded it in to jalv.gtk, opened each preset one by one and used the Preset > save option 74 times. It only works on plugins that have a gtk gui though. Weirdly, synthv1 appears to be qt, so I couldn’t use that method, so I wrote the convertor.

Regarding the preset convertor I need some guidance you might be able to help with. Have a look at this
