Alexander Zolotov has released version 2.0 of Virtual ANS, a full-featured professional tool which allows you to create unusual, deep, atmospheric sounds.
With this app you can draw a complete piece of music, or convert sound to image (sonogram) and then make some complex sonogram modifications.
Virtual ANS is a software simulator of the unique Russian synthesizer ANS – photoelectronic microtonal/spectral musical instrument created by Russian engineer Evgeny Murzin from 1938 to 1958. Murzin named his invention in honour of the composer Alexander Nikolayevich Scriabin.
The instrument was used by Stanislav Kreichi, Alfred Schnittke, Edison Denisov, Sofia Gubaidulina, Edward Artemiev and other Soviet composers. You can hear the sound of the ANS in Andrei Tarkovsky’s movies Solaris, The Mirror, Stalker. In 2004, the British experimental group Coil released CoilANS, a boxed set of experimental drone music performed on the ANS.
Changes in Virtual ANS v2.0
- Rewritten from scratch with the following systems support: iOS, Android, OSX, Linux, Windows.
- Optimized for realtime playing.
- Version 2 can load *.vns files from version 1, but not vice versa.
Virtual ANS is available to download for Android, Windows, Linux and OSX. iOS support is coming soon.
