Quote"Zebrify is the 'effects' version of Zebra2.Zebrify includes several features that transcend what you normally expect from an insert effect, for instance audio oscillators - with carefully programmed pitch-detection, Zebrify can be used as a powerful guitar synthesizer.Like the effects section in Zebra2, Zebrify is strictly monophonic i.e. single-voice. "The tracking is really good.I'm starting to think about using 6 instances of Zebrify to have a polyphonic guitar synthesizer, to see if I find the time and my pc can handle it.

QuoteAbout gating the OCS, do the following per the screenshot. In gist, we control the OSC volume with EnvFol1, we mute the audible guitar signal coming from Input1, while outputting the OCS on another channel.There's other ways to go about this, but this should be a good starting point.
Quote from: jassy on January 18, 2021, 09:02:23 AMWow! Thank you very much for your detailed explanation, very informative and useful.Im slowly understanding the nature of this synth, its modular typology makes it especially complicated at the beginning.Asking about the way to use OSC for a more pure sound, other user from KVR has explained how to do it and it works, I paste his explanation here maybe it woul be useful also for you.
Quote from: jassy on January 18, 2021, 05:19:50 PMI think the real key for this is the "envfol1" modulatin the OSC volume, as seen in the screenshot that I uploaded. Modulator at max and volume at min, this way the volume opens when you play a note and closes when you stop de string.Try this preset, its pretty fat I think.Anyway, in this way the tracking seems more lazy and imprecise... tweaking the input section helps to get more controlled sounds. Seems that Zebrify has two modes of traking, one tracks de pitch of the guitar the other the guitar sound is the oscilator. In this preset (based on one of you!) there is and XMF1 in the lane 1, if you unmute and activate it then it mixes both worlds, like in some of other of your presets.This guitar synth works very well in mono, but you need to try in exaphonic mode, it opens a new world. A cheap second hand GP10 will allow you to do that.
Quote from: pasha811 on January 19, 2021, 12:08:33 PMSolved.My GTR Input was too low. However I have discovered a way to make pitch more stable by using pitchness as a modulator mapped to OSC Volume opposed to EnvFol1. Guitar sound decays in a very peculiar way so pitchness is more stable after I have tweaked the INPUT section.Then you can play with WAVES and you are in presence of dozens of sounds. As an example you can find an Mp3 I have created and the patch used attached.Check the input section carefully there is where you shape the pitch to MIDI that drives OSC. This method is more 'direct' than the one I used so far and by means of a correct usage of WAVES and modules can lead to more straight synth sounds. Thanks for letting me know! Zebra Rocks and so Rocks Zebrify!
Quote from: Snow Black on January 19, 2021, 11:50:51 PMTo host 6 instances of Zebrify you could try Unify by pluginguru.com. I don't have Zebra to try it out but Unify is a VST plugin that can host other plugins, including itself! Highly recommended!
Quote from: jassy on January 19, 2021, 04:53:24 PMIm creating sounds in mono and then I save them and load in 6 instances to have a polyphonic sound. The problem is to have a container to encapsulate the 6 instances of Zebrify and be able to save presets that load the 6 instances with a PC command other way doing it one by one is unmanegeable.Im experimenting with different mini vst hosts to see what serves better that pourpose. Patchwork, Metaplugin, KV_Element... Let the Zebra-brigade to continue, Im sure others will discover it soon.
Quote from: Gaustu on January 06, 2022, 01:06:45 PMIt looks very strange to vote as an ideal the synth which is monophonic and to run 6 instances a tricky way . There are some synths on the market having not less possibilities of modulation and complexity, midi flexibility but true poliphonic, 6 channels ready w/o need to run 6 instances. Sytrus for instance
