Alterex releases X*ONE
Alterex has released X*ONE, a free virtual synthesizer instrument plug-in for Windows.
The X*ONE is a virtual monophonic synthesizer by AltereX, with one oscillator, one modulator, and one 12dB lowpass filter. Although the design is similar to the ViCON the sound of this module is phatter. This basic unit has some tricks up it’s sleeve and is one of the core parts of the X*PAND VSTi – that will be released next year.
- Modulator — Low frequency oscillator with a triangle shape and a envelope generator.
- Oscillator — Two oscillator shapes: sawtooth / square wave. Both waveforms can be edited. Sub oscillator from -/- 2 octaves to 0 octave.
- Filter — 12 db lowpass filter with envelope generator and decay for modulation of the cutoff.
- Master — Velocity sensitivity, glide, level and decay controls.
X*ONE is available as a freeware VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.
