HERCs Music Systems has released a public beta of their upcoming VSTi Viktor, a vector morphing synth.
- 4 VCO (with many waveforms)
- Analog/Digital filter with ADSR
- Recordable X/Y vector pad
- ADSR key scaling
- Key sensitivity
- LFO linked to pan, pitch and amp
- Delay effect
Do remember this is a beta so you might encounter some problems (worked fine for me in FL Studio 7). This release also has some patches by Vera Kinter (patches 128 through 186)
