Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jul 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

KX77FREE has announced updates to its Kx-Modulad, Kx-Synth-x16, Kx-PolyMod, and Kx-PolyM-CSE free synthesizer instruments for Windows.

KX77FREE Kx-PolyM-CSE
Kx-PolyM-CSE is a vintage modular polyphonic synthesizer with CV/GATE sequencer and CS70M emulation.

Changes in KX77FREE plug-ins

  • Kx-Modulad v3.0:
    • News: Filters, Ring modulator, Fx, Envelopes, SF2 player, Distortion, Lfos, Host synchronization…
    • Oversampling available for some filters, the ring modulator and the distortion.
    • Now the Lfos are band limited and use the oscillator waveforms.
    • Oscillator phase reset (Gate) available in all modes (Poly, Mono, Unison).
    • Midi controllers with aftertouch like the Kx-PolyMod.
    • Unison mode with portamento (up to 3 voices).
    • Polyphony setting (2 to 6 voices).
    • Improvement of the S/N ratio of the Vco2 synchronization.
    • Improvement of the SF2 large banks and waveforms loading.
    • Improvement of the Scope by setting its rate to 15 hz.
    • SSE2 SEM modules, less cpu use (up to 25% won following the preset) and size.
    • SSE2 KxWaveTracer.exe.
  • Kx-Synth-x16 v5.0:
    • New SSE2 sem modules (less of cpu use and size).
    • New filter more close of the original filter (based of BLT’s recordings) and SVF filters added.
    • Now the Sustain time is adjusted with the On parameter when the envelopes are looped.
    • Possibility to adjust the levels of all main generators with only one knob (vcos, ring modulator, noise).
    • Under Bar host synchronization (envelopes).
    • Only two outputs for the compatibility with jBridge and some hosts.
    • Improvement of oscillators: reset, synchronization and waveforms loading.
    • Improvement of ring modulator: new oversampling filter and now the equalizer is before the inputs.
    • Improvement of sequencer: files loading and host synchronization.
    • Internal changes for use common modules with the others plug-ins.
    • Internal presets modified.
  • Kx-PolyMod v1.57:
    • 6 new filters: SV (type R, more resonance) and Vcs3 (based of BLT’s recordings).
    • Update of Fx filters (Sv to Sv type R).
    • S/N ratio of the Vco1 synchronization improved.
    • Improvement of MgL filters with the MgLQ and MgLQd, they are oversampled x4 and can use more resonance level, they replace the MgL2 and MgLd. Also the new resonance curve of the Lo* filter (renamed Mg*and Mgd*) is very close of the one of MglQ (less cpu use).
    • Possibility to disable the reset of oscillators.
    • Improvement of Kxmod generators.
    • Minor internal changes.
    • Fixed bug: The delay line of the MgLd filter for the oversampling interpolation input was not boosted like the input signal.
  • Kx-PolyM-CSE v1.1d:
    • 6 new filters: SV (type R, more resonance) and Vcs3 (based of BLT’s recordings).
    • Improvement of Lo* and Hi* filters (renamed Mg* and Mgd*).
    • Update of Fx filters (Sv to Sv type R).
    • S/N ratio of the vcos synchronization improved.
    • Ring modulator: new oversampling filter (upper fc).
    • Possibility to disable the reset of oscillators.
    • Improvement of Kxmod generators.
    • Minor internal changes.
    • Fixed bug: An All Note Off Midi message is sending when the keyboard split limits are modified to avoid possible blocked notes during a program change.

The plug-ins are available to download for Windows (VST).

KX77FREE updates Kx-PolyM-CSE free synth plugin to v1.1

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 16, 2013 - comment 0 comments

KX77FREE has released version 1.1 of Kx-PolyM-CSE, a free synthesizer instrument for Windows.

KX77FREE Kx-PolyM-CSE
Kx-PolyM-CSE is a vintage modular polyphonic synthesizer with CV/GATE sequencer and CS70M emulation.

Changes in Kx-PolyM-CSE v1.1

  • 55 KX’s presets added.
  • Now the LFO envelope is reseted correctly like the original.
  • No LFO synchronization with the host if the LFO envelope controls the LFO speed, only the host tempo value is used to control the LFO speed.
  • Values under the BAR for the envelope synchronization with the host tempo.
  • Improvement of the Scope by setting its rate to 15 hz.
  • Improvement of x16 files loading when the plug-in is initialized.
  • Fixed: Now after a Prg Change the plug-in plays the first MIDI note.
  • Fixed: The resonance is decreased following the output of Sv filters to avoid an overflow of these filters when the Noise modulates the Cut off and the resonance level is upper than 8 (SvLp, SvHp, SvBp, SvBr).

The plug-in is a free download for Windows (VST).

KX77FREE releases Kx-PolyM-CSE modular synth plug-in

Kx-PolyM-CSE

KX77FREE has launched Kx-PolyM-CSE, a vintage modular polyphonic synthesizer instrument for Windows.

This one is a special work to implement a CS70M emulation and the x16 sequencer inside a modular VA. Even if the CS70 used for the tests is broken (some voices and keys are HS, no split, …), I could work nicely and really check this piece of synthesizer story. I really appreciated to go to the past… I added some “CS” offsets to the initial values of my usual setting, created the waveforms, modified the Lfo, etc, to match with the original synthesizer. Of course, you can use this plug-in like you want with or without the “CS” offsets.

I love the vintage japanese synthesizers because generally they have more creative parameters.

The particularity of this CS is its two channels (for each: 1 VCO, 1 VCF, 1 VCA) which provide nice stereo pads. And its Vcos are not Dcos (like those of 80’s synths), so the detune between the two Vcos and each voice creates rich chorus fx to build nice organs or string ensembles. But the great features of this vintage synthesizer are: the Lfo which generates a frequency modulation up to 500 hz controlled by the AD envelope and the Sine oscillators of the Vcas which create a solid base of the sounds using Bp or Hp filters.

The Kx-PolyM-CSE for Windows (VST) is a free download.

KX77FREE updates Kx-PolyMod synth plugin to v1.52

KX77FREE Kx-PolyMod

KX77FREE has released version 1.52 of the Kx-PolyMod, a vintage modular polyphonic synthesizer plug-in with stereo SF2 player.

Changes in Kx-PolyMod v1.52

  • New SFO compatible with the PAN feature of SF2 banks.
  • New SSE2 SEM modules, up to 7% CPU won (min requirement >= Athlon K8 and P4).
  • Improvement of the loading of large SF2 banks.
  • Vcfs: possibility to replace the parameter “Master Cut” (F1 and F2) by a simple Cut off (F1).
  • Improvement of the Fx: new sources of modulation, new SV filter (2 to 4 poles), dry level added.
  • Filter Fx: now it is not necessary to set the resonance to half in LP mode to have a flat response curve.
  • Lfo: peak follower added to smooth the Sample and Hold signal.
  • Some automation names corrected.
  • All notes are stopped when the selectors “P Max” or “P Note” are modified
  • Fixed bug: The plug-in was overloaded when the distortion was oversampled if the sustain level, the release time of the Vca Eg were set to 0 and also when the Pan was on the left or on the right (too small signal level to the oversampled distortion).

Kx-PolyMod for Windows (VST) is available to download at no cost.

KX77FREE updates Kx-PolyMod to v1.5

KX77FREE Kx-PolyMod

KX77FREE has released version 1.5 of the Kx-PolyMod virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Vintage modular polyphonic synthesizer with stereo SF2 player. To build analog 70’s leads!

Changes in Kx-PolyMod v1.5

  • Improved reset of the voices (filters and oscillators).
  • Levels of the harmonics before the cut off no longer decrease when the resonance is high (lp or bp, 18,12, 6).
  • A soft Tanh process has been implemented in some d* filters, the signal is modified by the Tanh process following the input level (produces less distortion).
  • Four SV filters (lp, hp, bp, notch) added with the possibility to adjust the number of poles of the slope (2 to 4, 12dB to 24 dB).
  • Two CS70M filters added (lp, hp), a special version of the SV filter with the same limits found in the tests: the cut off limited to 7040hz (9 volts) and the resonance level limited to 0.88.
  • GUI tool added: you can change the joystick background color to identify your plug-in if you have a session with many plug-ins used.
  • The internal help text has been modified to correct some errors and to update the test values.
  • The cut off of the MgL2 filter was false, the values used were not those of the oversampled filters. Fixed.
  • In some cases, the F1-F2 mix multiplied the stereo Vcf output by 0, causing abnormal CPU use. Fixed.

Kx-PolyMod for Windows (VST) is a free download.
