Moppel updates Sonatorium to v1.2
Moppel has released version 1.2 of Sonitarium, a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC.
Sonitarium employs a variant of DSF synthesis with aliasing-free oscillators that generate a quadrature stereo signal. Providing up to 100 oscillators per voice, Sonitarium is most suitable for smooth pads, layered leads, and some oddities.
Changes in Sonatorium v1.2
- About 40% less CPU drain (only on systems supporting SSE2 instructions, eg. Pentium4, Athlon64 or later).
- Fixed crackling noise when running multiple synth instances on multi-core systems.
- 22 new presets by runagate.
- Fixed potential pops and sticking notes.
- Limited the maximum generated frequency to 21kHz even at sample rates greater than 44.1kHz to avoid volume change at different sample rates.
- Downward compatible to v1.0/v1.0a.
Sonatorium is available as a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC.
