Autogun

Autogun is a universe of sounds waiting to be discovered. Based on the Ogun synthesizer engine and Soundgoodizer effects processor, Autogun contains 4,294,967,296 presets (four billion, two hundred ninety four million, nine hundred sixty seven thousand, two hundred ninety six), most of which have never been heard by man (or woman...are there girls here? Quick, get their phone numbers!).

Options & Controls

  • Preset selectors - There are 4,294,967,296 presets to explore. Better start clicking!
  • Volume - 0 to 200%. That's '20' on the electric guitar amp scale, 9 better than 11.
  • Magic dust - 0 to 100% magic provided by Soundgoodizer.
  • Options -
    • Enter preset number - Open to copy, paste or enter a preset number. Each preset is unique and is given a number from 1 to 4,294,967,296. Since Autogun shares its synthesis engine with Ogun, preset numbers can be shared between plugins. Paste the number into Ogun's Options > Enter random preset number field. Why not try them all? Because listening to 1 preset per second, 24 hours a day, every day, it will take you more than 136 years...
    • Processing quality - Sets interpolation. Select from a range of output quality options.
    • About - Opens the About screen.
    • Visit our website - Opens www.image-line.com.

Maximizing Performance

Autogun generally presents a low CPU load to the host, however it is possible to experience audio dropouts during real-time playback while the average CPU load still appears low, due to a non-uniform CPU usage. This non-uniformity comes from the, sometimes heavy, FFT processing for the harmonic series. Autogun generally uses high 'richness' settings (see Ogun synthesis controls), although some patches are set a little lower (and will stress your CPU less). If a patch is causing problems the best strategy is to increase the buffer latency. Either that OR dry your eyes, suck it in and select another patch...after all, there are another 4 billion+ to choose from :)
