Ogun can produce exceptionally rich metallic and shimmering timbres, although it's not limited to this genre. Ogun's distinctive synthesis engine can generate more than 32,000 harmonics, modulated by high-level 'harmonic mapping' functions, that hand tonal control directly to the user.

Ogun and real-time CPU load

Ogun generally presents a low CPU load to the host and has been designed to spread multiple instances of the plugin across multi-core CPU's. 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 (calculation of the waveform) for the harmonic series. Strategies for maximizing real-time performance of Ogun are:

  1. Increase the host latency (10 ms is a good compromise between responsiveness and CPU load).
  2. Avoid RICHness settings greater than 8 (where possible).
  3. Turn on multithreaded processing, if supported by your host.
