Pluck for Minilogue XD
is a User Oscillator for uploading to a Korg Minilogue XD synthesiser. At its heart is an algorithm which attempts to recreate the resonant qualities of a plucked string instrument through the use of a tuneable feedback loop. 

Kevin Karplus and Alexander Strong were two of the first pioneers of a commercial physical modelling plucked string synthesis algorithm in the early 1980's, and their valuable work has inspired and contributed to numerous hardware and software implementations of plucked string instruments ever since. 

Although the algorithm inside Pluck for Minilogue XD is to a degree based on the basic principles of Karplus/Strong string synthesis, it is of my own creation and not a direct clone of any existing work. That said, I do not believe that bringing the basic sound of a plucked string to the Minilogue XD is something I should seek specific financial reward for, hence the minimum price I have set is purely a small contribution towards the administrative costs of providing and running this distribution channel plus a small charge for the nine presets that I developed specifically for Pluck for Minilogue XD and which are included with the User Oscillator.

If you are able to donate more than the minimum price then I will be ever so grateful, whatever income I receive will help me to maintain this User Oscillator, to keep it compatible with future Minilogue XD firmware updates, to provide maintenance releases and to hopefully provide new features in the future.
