Audjoo Helix

Audjoo has released an update to Helix, a virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Helix is a Wave-Table-Shaping, Phase modulation, Virtual Analog, Physical Modelling Hybrid Synthesizer. Unusually high sound quality, massive modulation, creative audio-routing and many built-in effects all make Helix a synth easy to like.

Changes in Helix (2011-02-14)

  • Bug-fix: Some filters could freak out with very high cutoff-frequency.
  • 100+ new cycles included (for wave-type oscillator).
  • New and improved re-sampling algorithm for the rompler.
  • Slightly quicker startup time.
  • LFO “free”-phase, to feel more analog.
  • More Global LFOs.
  • Global LFO can retrigger each time a new key is pressed.
  • Step-sequencer “key-step” (start at a new step with each key-press).
  • Chorus stereo-flip.
  • Shaper-postgain as a modulation destination.
  • Bugfix when saving patches on mac: properly ask before overwriting.
  • Reverb dry-level.
  • Support tuning in sfz-files.
  • A bunch of new presets.
  • Support for “zen” preset manager.

Helix for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $149 USD.

    interesting how little press/buzz this synth gets. Must be the price?
    Keep up the Good work, Ronnie!

    I think Helix is underrated, but it sure has some tough competition in the price range.

    Also, there was a long period of free beta releases (before it got the lovely GUI it has now).
    I know it is silly but once I have used free beta versions for a while it always feels a bit “funny” when v1.0 comes around and all of a sudden you have to pay for almost the same thing you already had before…
