Virtual ANS (ANS – the abbreviation for Aleksandr Nikolaevic Skrjabin) by Alex Zolotov is the software version of the Russian ANS synthesizer, which uses the unique optical method of synthesis developed by a scientist E. Mursin between 1937 and 1957.
Virtual ANS creates unique sounds by converting JPG-images to sound and vice versa.
- Several tools for visual transformations
- Three methods of synthesis during conversion (FFT and ADDITIVE)
- Option to generate multichannel sounds (mono, stereo, 6 channels)
