is a polyphonic subtractive synthesizer to produce a vast
array of sounds, utilizing three main signal modules:
frequency (voltage-controlled oscillator VCO), timbre
(voltage-controlled filter VCF) and amplitude
(voltage-controlled amplifier VCA).
Four VCOs initiate the
sound waveform and control its frequency. It also determines
the initial timbre by the waveform option selected (sawtooth
or square). The VCF module shapes the timbre via a low-pass
filter with cutoff and resonance parameters controlled by an
envelope generator. The amplitude of the sound is shaped by
the VCA envelope.
It generates iconic
vintage synthesizer sounds with distinctive pads, peculiar
keys, punchy basses, sparkle leads, creepy effects, charming
ambient soundscapes or unearthly and otherworldly
atmospheres. Suitable for many genres
and styles of music and pliability to custom design over a
diverse sonic palette. Available as a plugin in VST and VST3
64 bit versions for Windows, as well as in Audio Unit for
Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCOs).
They will generate the initial sound signal with four voltage controlled
oscillators (VCO1, VCO2, VCO3, VCO4), with the following parameters:
A fine-tuning knob that tunes the VCOs by a semitone. Gives a wide array of
frequencies between the oscillators.
The knob to specify octaves above or below the current octave of the VCO by
dialing in a range between -2 to +3 octaves.
Morphs between sawtooth and square non-sinusoidal waveforms. The sawtooth
waveform contains all harmonics of the fundamental pitch of the waveform. The
square waveform contains just the odd harmonics.
Defines the frequency or speed of the oscillator. Turn the knob clockwise to
increase the rate or counterclockwise to decrease the rate.
This parameter is used to adjust the modulation gain level of each VCO.
Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) Envelope. Changes
the produced frequency. It can be used to modify the attack phase or to create
special effect sounds.
Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA) Envelope.
Controls the volume or amplitude of the sound with independent control over each
ADSR stage (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release) over the VCA amplifier that varies
its gain depending on a control voltage. The ‘Level’ slider determines the magnitude of
the action of the envelope.
Voltage Controlled Filter (VCF).
A low-pass filter that lets the lower frequencies or harmonics pass unchanged,
while it attenuates or reduces the strength of the higher frequencies, offering
a simple and effective tone control to shape and color the sound source.
Controls the low-pass filter cutoff frequency. Determines where the signal is
Controls the low-pass filter resonance. Emphasize or suppress portions of the
signal above or below the defined cutoff frequency.
Voltage Controlled Filter (VCF) Envelope. This
section provides control of the filter cutoff frequency over time, with
independent control over each ADSR stage (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release). The ‘Level’ slider determines the magnitude of
the action of the ADSR envelope on the frequency and response of the low-pass
A 4-voice stereo chorus effect that imparts richness and character to the sound
by adding multiple short delays with a slight amount of feedback, making each
sound distinct from the original.
A switch indicator to turn ON/OFF the module. Press the toggle to activate the
effect, the switch will light, and chorus will be applied to the sound. To
inactivate the effect, press again and it will turn off.
Adjusts the stereo spreading of the chorus voices. For maximum stereo spread,
fully clockwise rotation; for a monophonic chorus, simply set to zero.
the presence of the chorus. Turn it clockwise to increase it or counterclockwise
to decrease it.
slider sets the balance between the unprocessed (dry) signal and the processed
(wet) signal that will be blended.
A stereo delay that stores the input signal and plays it back after a certain
amount of time, creating from a subtle echo to a pronounced blending of previous
sounds with new sounds. Parameters include:
Modulation to vary the delay time dynamically.
Regeneration of delay.
Integrated reverberation module.
A switch to turn on/off the unit. Press the toggle to activate the effect, the
switch will light, and reverb will be applied to the sound. To inactivate the
effect, press again and it will turn off.
The knob provides a spaciousness and depth to simulate the sound reflections
from walls, floors and ceilings following a sound created in an acoustically
reflective environment. Small rooms can be modeled as well as large spaces.
This knob adjusts the stereo separation of the wet reverb signal.
A virtual wheel to vary the frequency or pitch of the oscillators (VCOs) in a
continuously variable manner. Bend
wheel upward raises the pitch and moving it downward lowers the pitch. It will
automatically return to its initial position when released.
Keyboard. The virtual keyboard
lets you listen to the synthesizer sounds without the need for an external
master MIDI keyboard. Just click on a virtual key to hear the corresponding
