Robin Schmidt’s Music Engineering Tools releases Straightliner v1.0
Robin Schmidt’s Music Engineering Tools has released version 1.0 of Straightliner, a straight-lined subtractive synthesizer in a modern guise.
Straightliner key features
- 4 alias free Oscillators, each of which may load a stereo or mono single cycle wave file (.wav or .flac).
- Full stereo signal path for wide and enveloping sounds right from the start even without any effects.
- Multimode filter with 15 modes, among them a sophisticated Moog model.
- 2 flexible modulation generators, with an arbitrary number of breakpoints and 9 options for the shape in between any pair of breakpoints.
- Support of microtuning via import of .tun files.
- Hierarchical preset management to let you load and save presets not only for the synth as a whole but also separately for each relevant building block to easily hybridize your patches.
- Intuitive WYSIWYG user interface to let you comprehend patches at a glance – optimized for use with screen and mouse rather than mimicking hardware.
Straightliner is available as a VST plug-in for Windows PC and costs €89 EUR. A demo version can be downloaded from the product page.
