Adam Szabo has announced an update to Viper, a software synthesizer for Windows that aims to deliver the sound characteristics of legendary hardware synthesizers.

Version 1.0.9 includes new skins and various other additions, improvements, and fixes.

A lot of time and research has been invested to make Viper capable of delivering a wide array of sounds, everything from lush pads, huge basses, and powerful leads, typically found in analog synthesizers. This was achieved with careful coding, experimenting, analyzing hardware synths, and using the ear to fine tune its parameters.

  • New skins.
  • New Analog filter in Filter 1.
  • New “Enable Tooltip” function in main menu (displays help text when hovering over controls after a few seconds).
  • New “Restore Preset” function.
  • Improved filters.
  • More informative window about missing wavs.
  • Faster initialization of presets.
  • Show GUI scaling when resizing from corner.
  • Automations use lower CPU.
  • Arpeggiator uses slightly less CPU.
  • Fixed bug in Arpeggiator redrawing.
  • Fixed small bugs in LFO, Envelope and Matrix.
  • Lots of other bug fixes.
