Alterex X*ONE

Alterex has released X*ONE, a free virtual synthesizer instrument plug-in for Windows.

The X*ONE is a virtual monophonic synthesizer by AltereX, with one oscillator, one modulator, and one 12dB lowpass filter. Although the design is similar to the ViCON the sound of this module is phatter. This basic unit has some tricks up it’s sleeve and is one of the core parts of the X*PAND VSTi – that will be released next year.

X*ONE features

  • Modulator — Low frequency oscillator with a triangle shape and a envelope generator.
  • Oscillator — Two oscillator shapes: sawtooth / square wave. Both waveforms can be edited. Sub oscillator from -/- 2 octaves to 0 octave.
  • Filter — 12 db lowpass filter with envelope generator and decay for modulation of the cutoff.
  • Master — Velocity sensitivity, glide, level and decay controls.

X*ONE is available as a freeware VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.

Alterex releases ViSYNTH

Alterex ViSYNTH

Alterex has released ViSYNTH, a freeware synthesizer plug-in inspired by Synth Lite produced by MFB.

Alterex tried to catch the functionality and feeling of the original german unit but is not intended as software clone. It’s hard to deny that we have a weakness for small units.

ViSYNTH features

  • Oscillators: 2 with saw, square, pulse waveforms.
  • Sub oscillator: 1 with a square waveform.
  • Oscillator mode: ring-modulation 1*2, 1*2*3 and oscillator sync.
  • Modulator: triangle, saw down, square and one shot saw down. The modulator can be set to the oscillators pitch and the filter’s cutoff amount. If the oscillator 2 is set to pulse, the modulator acts as pulse-width-modulation.
  • Filter: 24db low-pass filter with envelope modulation (ADSR 1) and CV (note pitch) modulation.
  • VCA: the ADSR 2 is set to the VCA (when the release value in the system settings is set to 0 the amount of the decay = the amount of the release value).
  • Global settings: modulation wheel: can be set to oscillator pitch or filter’s cutoff velocity sensitivity.

ViSYNTH is available as a freeware VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.

Alterex updates [modified] ViCON

Alterex [modified] ViCON

Alterex has updated [modified] ViCON, a free virtual monophonic analogue modified synthesizer plug-in for Windows.

Do dirty overdriven modulated sounds make you smile aswell? Alterex modified ViCON and added cross-modulation, overdrive and distortion. Don’t hesitate to e-mail me if you have ideas for mods.

Changes in [modified] ViCON

  • The octave switch is now set for the sub-oscillator and has a range from -1 to -2 octaves.
  • Added Frequency Modulation for the cut-off frequency. The audio signal from the main oscillator is routed to the cut-off frequency.
  • The LFO has a new shape: a ramp.

[modified] ViCON is available as a freeware VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.

Alterex ViNOM

Alterex has released ViNOM, a free synthesizer instrument plug-in for Windows.

The ViNOM synthesizer has dual VCO, LFO (tri, sqr, saw up, saw down and s&h) and a VCF with a 12/18/24 dB lowpass filter.

ViNOM features

  • LFO/MG — retrigger, BPM synced with the waveforms: tri, sqr, saw up, saw down and sample and hold.
  • VCO — Two with saw, sqr and tri with oscillator sync and ring modulation. The MG or EG can modulate the pitch of either oscillator 1, 2 or 1+2.
  • VCF — 12/18/24 dB low-pass filter with CV modulation. The cut-off frequency can be modulated by the MG or EG.
  • ENV — The envelope generator is based on ViCON.

ViNOM is available as a freeware VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.

Alterex releases [modded] ViCON

Alterex [modded] ViCON

Alterex has released [modded] ViCON, a modified version of the freeware ViCON virtual monophonic analogue synthesizer plug-in for Windows.

Changes in [modded] ViCON

  • Oscillators
    • XMOD, The frequency of the selected oscillator is modulated by the output of the other oscillator (modulator) – resulting in complex overtones. This knob determines the cross-modulation depth.
    • XLFO, Adjusts the amount of LFO modulation for the cross-modulation.
    • PWM, This knob determines the amount of LFO modulation for the pulse width of the square oscillator. When the saw-tooth is selected this knob has no function.
  • Audio
    • DRIVE, By turning the (over)drive knob the signal output of the oscillator is multiplied by 1,66 before it reaches the filter input.
    • DIST., Determines the amount of (dist)ortion applied to the output of the VCA audio signal.
    • CRUSH, This knob determines the amount of bit reduction to the audio signal.
  • LFO
    • DELAY Controls the amount of time that will elapse after the beginning of a new note before the LFO’s amplitude rises.

The original ViCON has been updated to version 1.61, fixing a few bugs (LFO) and adding velocity sensitivity.

Alterex ViCON

Alterex has released ViCON, a freeware virtual monophonic synthesizer VST instrument for Windows PC.

ViCON is a free VSTi synthesizer with 1 VCO and sub oscillator with a 12/24db VCF – created using Synthedit.

The architecture of ViCON is solemnly based on the Microcon produced by Technosaurus. The ViCON is not intended to be a software clone or emulation of the Microcon.

ViCON features

  • Glide, trig (legato play) and master tune.
  • VCO (square/sawtooth) with -2 octave swith and mix control for mixing sub-oscillator (rectangular wave, one octave under the VCO’s pitch).
  • LFO for cut-off frequency and pitch (square or triangle waveform). LFO retriggers at gate signal.
  • LFO speed is synced to internal bpm clock of your VST-host.
  • Envelope generator with Attack and Decay (knobs) and Release (switch).
  • VCF (filter) with cutoff and resonance controls and 12db/24db modes.
  • Filter modulation (LFO and enevelope for cutoff).
  • Filter CV mode modulates the filter, it opens with increasing pitch.
  • VCA with audio signal level control and mode switch (modulation of volume: AD = envelope, GATE = connected gate signal).

ViCON is available as a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC.
