Curated collection of FV-1 programs?
« on: January 20, 2020, 06:15:58 PM »
I've been trying to scrounge together FV-1 programs to try out and play with, but it hasn't been terribly easy.  My question is 2-fold:

1. Does anyone have curated links or files of FV-1 programs they want to share? Whether a few or many... and
2. Are others interested in a site that has downloadable (or linked) lists of categorized FV-1 programs? Ideally with a bit of commentary on each one. Probably both paid (e.g. pedalpcb's)  and free ones. If there's interest and if I can find enough available programs, I'd love to put one together.

There used to be a bunch on the SpinCAD Designer forum at holycityaudio, but that website seems down?

Maybe Digital Larry could chime in?

Yeah, I've heard reference of that site a lot. I'd love to know if he has an archive of them.

I think a lot of hobbiests like me could benefit from having a page with a bigger list of programs to look through, so I'm still eager to set one up.

Hi,

holycityaudio was closed some months ago by Digital Larry. There is a post in the forum explaining the reasons.

But he has kept some information (including some interesting discussions and patches) in the SpinCaD github repository. Go check it out.

https://github.com/HolyCityAudio/SpinCAD-Designer

On the other hand, I do have a lot of programs I have been collecting over the past years, some from this forum, some from holycityaudio, and some from Spinsemi forums, and including some programmed by myself. Not really "curated" though..., and in most cases I have lost track on where they came from. But if you are interested in building such a repository, I can provide some raw material. You will need to test and comment them yourself though.

I never really organized patches, but yes if you look down here you'll find many patches contained within various discussion threads.  Once I wrote SpinCAD Designer I started coming up with patches that were pretty bizarre and difficult to explain because I wasn't all that interested in yet another chorus patch.  I probably have hundreds on my hard drive but can't bring myself to spend the time to review them.  I'm really trying to record some songs I've written over the last (cough) 30 years and if I spread myself too thin nothing gets finished.  This year for sure!

Some of these are SpinCAD Patches or banks (which can be turned into Spin ASM and/or Spin IDE projects by using SpinCAD Designer) and some are probably FV-1 assembler. 
https://github.com/HolyCityAudio/SpinCAD-Designer/tree/master/patches
https://github.com/HolyCityAudio/SpinCAD-Designer/tree/master/docs

If you want reverbs, go to Spin's free programs page.
http://spinsemi.com/programs.php

Also check the attachment to the OEM projects where they've hidden some other stuff (programs).  If you're into studying the FV-1 code with a mind to understanding it, you'll find several different reverb structures and you might be able to improvise something new.  Some of these are designed to just use one control rather than all three.

http://spinsemi.com/guitar_amp_application.html

Of course, I do recommend using SpinCAD Designer as well, since you can work really quickly and come up with strange (or not) things.

If anyone has questions about using SpinCAD, or especially trying to update or improve the code itself, feel free to ask here or over at Github, and I will answer as time and my recollection permits.  I pop by here once or twice a week still.

Thanks a lot for the links. These are the sorts of hidden gems I was hoping for.
I'm downloading them all now, and I'm really looking forward to going through them later!

potul, I would certainly be interested in any programs you have, even if not documented.

I think I'll probably go ahead and at least publish a list, even if I don't yet have any commentary for them.

I was going to comment and mention the dozen or so I've got, but then I saw Larry's list and now I don't feel the need :P

To be honest, I never went past using SpinCAD Designer and into Spin ASM, since the Designer gives me all I need!
Thank you SO MUCH for that wonderful tool.

Hey, thanks again everyone.  I put together an initial list here:

https://mstratman.github.io/fv1-programs/

I'll certainly continue to find this useful as I experiment with the FV-1, and hopefully others do too.

I hope any time you create or come across something you think others might be interested, that you'd consider adding it to this site as well.

Good initiative.

In the coming days I will review the list and see if I have something new to add from my private repository.

This list is amazing.  It's very satisfying to me to see all the stuff people created with SpinCAD.  And all the handwritten code too!  The FV-1's got its own corner of FX history.  It's not the most powerful by a long shot but it's still pretty useful.

Many of those with SpinASM links actually came from SpinCAD too, and were exported.  So the number of spincad files in it isn't even representative of its popularity. Great work! To you and everyone who helped make it such an awesome platform.

What about to create a github repository with all those source codes?

Github can keep track of all modifications done to the code.

Yep, they're all in github: https://github.com/mstratman/fv1-programs
