About HG Fortune: background of my music and algorithmic work: Actually all arose back in the early 90ies when I was developing some kind of tool the “generate” music from horoscope-data. It was then when I developed my very own system of algorithmic composition. This had been working quite well. For the technical interested visitors: the music was done with quite “simple means”: Kawai K11, Kawai K4 & K4R, Peavey DPM V2, some Juno 106 and JX8P, a Kawai RV4 as FX-Unit. Due to different circumstances that system lay dormant for several years and I did some different kind of electronic music.
In May 2003 I did some kind of music for a good friend of mine as a help to get asleep and that led my focus back to my old system as I did use some material from that work. As well I utilized some material from the VSTInstrument “Sun Ra” by elogoxa which drew my attention to the fantastic program SynthEdit by Jeff McClintock. Quite immediately I realized the deep potential of SynthEdit so in about June 2003 I started to “go forward to the roots” in reviving my old algorithmic system into new dimensions. It took me until end of August til the “system” was running basically to produce som more complex things. With a lot of finetuning and enhancements til mid of September I was able to add even a percussion-section which is offering an additional dimension. Later in 2003 I did the 1st “Wheel of Fortune”, in late Summer 2004 “X-Wheel Of Fortune” and “X-Wheel of Fortune Pro” and now this has evolved to an expanding range of stunning synthesizers.
I’ve done quite a long list of different VSTi by now and for the STS-33 I could finally find an elegant solution to control multiple targets by an X/Y control pad in addition to already working modulations, and without complicated workarounds to filter out or limit data possibly exceeding certain internal ranges – no extra CPU needed on this. And what’s best there is even additional control via MIDI. This will lead to further enhancements of the next X-WoF too, but I still have to investigate for the best options and possibilities.
