Sonic Charge updates Synplant to v1.0.1

Sonic Charge Synplant

Sonic Charge has released version 1.0.1 of Synplant, an innovative software synthesizer with a genetic approach to sound creation.

Instead of creating patches the conventional way by turning dials and knobs, Synplant lets you explore a world of organic sounds by planting seeds that grow into synth patches.

Changes in Synplant v1.0.1

  • Implemented support for the “all notes off midi message”. Some hosts (most importantly Cakewalk Sonar) require this to stop notes from playing. In other words, the hanging note problems in Sonar should have been fixed now.
  • Improved compatibility with older VST 2.3 hosts, including FXpansion’s RTAS wrapper (VST 2.4 is still the official requirement, this version of Synplant is expected to work well with the RTAS wrapper.
  • Fixed a rare but serious problem with the GUI freezing up on Mac (never to defrost again, never to come back to life). Turned out to be a bug in Synplant in combination with some unexpected behavior from OS X.
  • Some minor updates to the internal code libraries that will improve stability in general.

Sonic Charge has also released Crop of Year One, the first new patch package since the release of Synplant last year.

This package separates the wheat from the chaff among a year’s worth of patch cultivation. 163 patches created by Az’re-ul, elv, Elxicano, eXode, Hint, Magnus Lidström, rsmus7 and Tore Jarlo.

Crop of Year One is available as a free download for all registered Synplant owners.

Nucleus SoundLab releases VS Resurrection

Nucleus SoundLab VS Resurrection

Nucleus SoundLab has released VS Resurrection, the second volume in the Nucleus SoundLab Resurrection sample line, based on the vector synthesis of the Prophet VS.

VS Resurrection includes all 94 classic waveforms from the VS – as well as 14 more complex, filtered and effected waveforms. Using these waves as a starting point, Nucleus SoundLab designers created patches ideally suited to Wusikstation’s strengths. The result is a eminently playable, rich – and very ’80s digital’ – sample library.


  • 600mb (32-bit format) of carefully sampled/looped VS waveforms
  • 108 unique soundsets
  • 300+ Wusikstation presets authored by a variety of talented Wusikstation designers – tasmodia, Daniel Kemp, Vera Kinter, and elv
  • Each Wusikstation preset has the XY pad fully mapped to a variety of parameters – as a tribute to the original VSs vector synthesis

VS Resurrection is available for Wusikstation v3+ and Soundfont/SFZ and costs:

  • 29.95 EUR for a single-format download
  • 39.95 EUR for the multi-format* download
  • 44.95 EUR for the multi-format* DVD (including international shipping)

* The multi-format includes the raw SoundFont/SFZ files exclusively.
