KX77FREE Kx-Synth-x16 and Kx-Modulad, freeware synths updated

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jul 12, 2010 - comment 0 comments

KX77FREE has released version 3.0 of virtual vintage modular polyphonic synthesizer Kx-Synth-x16, and version 2.1 of Kx-Modulad, an analog modular synthesizer with stereo SF2 player and an additive synthesis.

Changes in Kx-Synth-x16 v3.0

  • KX77FREE oscillators replace the native SE oscillators (tweaked with a lot of modules). The result is -40% of CPU use won (-33% up to -50%).
  • The waveforms have been modeled by using additive synthesis (Wavetracer v2.0). This technology produces waveforms like the original analog waveforms, the timbre and the shape can be identical or very close.
  • Kx-Synth-x16 oscillators are 100% compatible with the Kx-Modulad waveforms. These waveforms are available on http://kx77free.free.fr.
  • New parameters: “G Vcos” to put all vcos in phase to do fatty bass sounding.
  • New LFO parameters, the AUX envelop can control the LFO speed and its amount to the LFO level is now independent of the main AUX envelop level used to the matrix.
  • Midi input channel selector added.
  • All the Midi learn parameters are set to “none”, you start with a blank Midi learn setting.
  • All banks in version 2.5 are compatible with those of version 3.0. This new version keeps the same vst index (ID) of the version 2.5 in order to preserve the compatibility of the presets between the two versions.
  • Fixed: If a negative value of velocity modulated the release of the VCA envelope, the VCA output level could be completely saturated.
  • Fixed: A bug in Cubase 5 is avoided by changing only the first letters of the name of the plug-in. Indeed if two VSTs have the same ID and have theirs names beginning with the same letters Cubase 5 shows only one in its list of VSTs. If you want to keep the KX-SYNTH-X16-V25, the plug-in V3-KX-SYNTH-X16 will work fine and will appear in the VSTs list of Cubase 5.

Changes in Kx-Modulad v2.1

  • Wavetracer v2.0: all VCS3 waveforms was done with this new version!
  • Help texts for all Wavetracer parameters.
  • 13 new waveforms are available.
  • All the Midi learn parameters are set to “none”, you start with a blank Midi learn setting.
  • Fixed bugs: the Midi Learn channel was selected alway to “All” and the Aftertouch destinations was wrong.

Kx-Synth-x16 and Kx-Modulad are available to download as freeware VST instrument plug-ins for Windows PC.

    • Initialization time of 2 sec.
    • Less cpu use, no mute and initialization during the Prg Ch.
    • Mini knobs to control directly the joystick with Midi controllers.
    • New internal structure with less modules and connections.
    • The input level of the Fx is controlled by the Run AR to smooth the signal when the FX are used directly .
    • The destinations Vca, Ring a, Ring B and Fx go to the sleep mode if any pins are not connected in theirs columns.
    • Midi out: the Prg Ch is filtered and better management of the CC123.
  • Bugs fixed:
    • The transposition of the sequencer CV to the matrix was wrong.
    • The Mod signal of the voice n°6 was rectified and always positive.
    • If the loop ( Lp ) of the adsr was enabled during the sustain, the adsr could not be retriggered.
    • To avoid incompatibilities with some hots during the samplerate update, the external inputs are unavailable with the VSTi version. This feature is implemented in a monophonic VSTe (effect): KX-SYNTH-X16-FX.

KX77FREE KX-SYNTH-X16-V2

KX77FREE has released KX-Synth-X16-V2, a vintage modular polyphonic synthesizer based on the VCS3 structure.

One of the new features of the 2.0 version is the polyphony with a total respect of the original feeling of this synthesizer. A new KXMOD system is implemented to create fat vintage leads or nice polyphonic instruments. A CV and gate sequencer has been added to create real vintage sequences.

KX-Synth-X16-V2 features

  • Common features with the VCS3
    • Three variable shape oscillators,tweaked to simulate the color and bandwidth of Vcs3′s oscillators.
    • 16*16 pin matrix with feedback connections.
    • LP filter, 18 db per octave with self oscillating.
    • Noise generator with EQ.

KX77FREE releases KX-Synth-X16

KX77FREE has released KX-Synth-X16, a freeware VCS3 inspired VA type instrument plug-in for Windows PC.

Xavier Kalensky writes:

It is unusual for me to work on VA. But when Burnie asked us Nova and me to do a VCS3 plugin I was interested. This old EMS synthesizer is great with its modern matrix concept, its joystick and its possibility to do feedback patches. Nova collected some docs and Scot Solida sent to Nova his recordings. I used them to research the way to do a close oscillator simulation. I did a new filter based on the KX filter code. Nova built a modern skin. We did not built another SE clone of this synthesizer but added some great features on the original concept.
