Expert Sleepers has released version 1.4.4 of Silent Way, a suite of plug-ins designed for use as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system.
The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound – rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs etc. of an analogue system. Also, with the addition of the CV Input plug-in, it is possible to bring CVs from the synth into the computer, for recording or processing.
There are currently six plug-ins in the Silent Way suite – Silent Way DC, Silent Way LFO, Silent Way Trigger, Silent Way CV Input, Silent Way CV To OSC and Silent Way Voice Controller.
Changes in Silent Way v1.4.4
- Silent Way CV To OSC added.
Silent Way CV To OSC translates CV signals (such as those produced by Silent Way CV Input, for example) into OSC messages. These can in turn be used to control all sorts of software and hardware devices. See the Expert Sleepers YouTube channel for some ideas.
Silent Way is available for PC and Mac (VST/AU) for $49 USD (plus VAT if applicable).
