Triceratops (release 0.3.1 shown above), created and developed by Nick Bailey, is a 3-oscillator, subtractive digital softsynth for the linux platform. It has both polyphonic and mono (legato) capabilities. It includes three LFOS, each one able to influence the three oscillators at separate levels; lfo waveforms include: saw and inverse-saw, square and inverse-square, sample-and-hold, sine and noise. The oscillators (sine, saw, square/pulse, noise) can be synced. There are three ADSRs (filter, amplitude and LFO modulation).
A variety of effects are provided, such as reverb, delay (echo) with 3-band equalizer that affects only the echo, drive (distortion), and FM capability that makes oscillator three into a high-frequency modulator for oscillator one. Portamento (inertia) is provided. There is also a Unison mode.
There are four filter types in Triceratops: low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and formant. The filter function can also be switched off. Along with cutoff and resonance control are key-follow and tuning capabilities.
Triceratops is an LV2 plug-in which can be run in several DAWs such as Qtractor, or in jalv.gtk. In jalv.gtk, run Triceratops after installing by entering
jalv.gtk http://nickbailey.co.nr/triceratops in your terminal. Or, check out the "jalv.select" GUI application (available in the Ubuntu Studio/KXStudio repos) which allows quick selection and loading of all your LV2 plugins.
