WOK has released Ghost, a freeware drone synthesizer instrument for Windows.
What is it? Something that makes a sound.
How to use? Adjust Attack/Release with the one knob and press + hold one or more keys on your keyboard.
Is it made with Synthedit? YES! So it’s big, a CPU hog, might crash your host, is NOT available for overpriced MAC computers and is responsible for all the evil in the world (incl. Rave and Facebook).
Drone for Windows (VST) is available as a free download here.

WOK has announced the release of Notenspeicher, a MIDI VST plugin for Windows.
Record a sequence step by step and play it back in various modes with Notenspeicher.
NOTENSPEICHER is a MIDI recorder / step sequencer with maximum ease of use: just record MIDI notes step by step and play them back in various ways.
The plugin holds up to 64 notes and plays them back transposed with selectable speed in sync to the host; nonstop, while a key is pressed or step by step.
Each sequence is saved as a VST preset, so 128 sequences can be accessed by program change.
Easy to use, with a nice vintage looking GUI.
The VST plugin for Windows is available to purchase for 3 EUR.

WOK has announced SAM, a VST recreation of the famous Oberheim™ SEM module.
While the soundwise construction is similar to the hardware unit, some limitations have been eliminated in the software version; so there is polyphony, a second LFO, a noise source and PWM for the saw waveform.
Special attention was given to recreate the analog variably of seperate hardware circuits for the audio paths in polyphonic mode.
SAM will be available end of August as a VST plugin for Windows with an introductory offer.

WOK has announced the release of Estrima, a virtual string machine instrument for Windows.
Liking this lush pad sound of the 60s/70s ? ESTRIMA is the little sister of our Cromina string machine. It creates this famous, swirling sound with a minimum of hassle. Also there is a choir voicing on board to treat you ears with this old “Aaahh”-sound ;-)
Unlike our big Cromina, it does not have the full polyphonic octave divider simulation, but a simplified phase lock for the 20 voices to reduce CPU load. There is a paraphonic envelope simulation too.
Also on board is a 3x chorus and a deep phaser. The waveform-shape of strings and choir can be varied to achieve the sound of different vintage machines. Auto pitch-bend (for the choir) and vibrato complete this straightforward little toy.
Estrima for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for the “Spring-2013-Maya-fail” introductory price of 9.87 EUR.

WOK has released Mixtube, a tube stage effect plug-in for Windows.
One of the secrets for the special, warm sound of old recordings was the usage of mixing desks with tube input stages in past times. As you know, tube amplifying has many different effects on the audio signal like adding overtones, smoothening transients and so on.
With Mixtube, we carefully implemented these effects into an easy to use VST effect plugin. Insert Mixtube into each channel of your recording and/or the master channel, and enjoy a warmer, thicker sound of your music, with every signal fitting better in the mix.
Mixtube for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for 28 EUR.
