farbrausch V2

farbrausch has released version 1.5 of V2, a synthesizer system used in the farbrausch demoscene releases.

Here it is – the synthesizer that was responsible for creating all sounds in the famous farbrausch intros such as .the .product, poemtoahorse, Candytron, Flybye and of course the 96 kilobyte shoot-em-up .kkrieger, and the 177 kilobyte miracle called debris. makes it available to YOU – from this time on you can download all tools necessary for composing as well as a library that you can put into your own productions at your own will. So, enjoy!

Two downloads are available:

  1. The content creation tools (new: version 1.5, for musicians and .werkkzeug users) – this package contains the V2 synthesizer in VSTi (Windows) and Buzz machine form as well as a WinAMP plugin that allows you to listen to your V2 songs in a comfortable manner.
  2. The libv2 (new: version 1.5, for programmers) – the V2 synthesizer and player as static library for easy including into your own programs. Contains an example project which not only shows how to use libv2 but also is a great lesson in getting your Win32 executables small.

These packages include the singing V2 speech synth, featured in Candytron, the Breakpoint ’04 invitation by MFX and others.
