xoxos releases Perfecto
xoxos has released Perfecto, a freeware virtual analog synth VST plug-in for Windows PC.
Perfecto has two relatively uncommon features:
- two audio oscillators cross modulate via pitch (fm) and phase (pm).
- pitch to user-scale algorithm that can be used for arpeggio effects.
Note: Perfecto’s oscillators are “unimproved,” with no antialiasing or other usual amenities and pitch or phase modulation of the oscillators uses tons and tons of cpu.
- Oscs (4 voices of poly) – Sine, saw, tri and square waveforms, Key (syncing oscillators to NoteOn events), Octave, Tune and Portamento.
- LFOs – Sine, saw ramp, square and triangle waveforms, synced to key or free running.
- Scale – main pitch bus is snapped to user-input scale.
- Filter (H/L/B/R) – When the filter tracking mode button is lit, the filter’s cutoff tracks whatever is coming out of the scaler instead of the played keyboard note.
