rs-met updates Straightliner to v1.1
rs-met has released version 1.1 of Straightliner, a straight-lined subtractive synthesizer in a modern guise.
You will find the well known building blocks of classic analog synthesizers (4 oscillators, a filter, 2 envelope generators) patched together in the traditional way. What sets it apart from the sheer mass of other subtractive (also often called virtual analog) synthesizers is, that it does not attempt to emulate analog synthesizers with all their physically imposed limitations. Instead, Straightliner takes full advantage of the extended possibilities that sofware based synthesis offers.
Changes in Straightliner v1.1
- Re-designed GUI.
- Additional waveform manipulations in the oscillator section: time-warping, stereo-detuning, stereo-phase-shifting of the harmonics, Even/Odd adjustment, spectral contrast, spectral filtering and more.
- Now includes 58 selected high-quality presets and the required waveforms (more are freely available as add-on from the website).
Straightliner is available as a VST instrument for Windows PC for 89 EUR. A demo of version 1.1 can be found here.
