SPC Plugins has released version 1.6 of ArcSyn, a virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

SPC Plugins ArcSyn 1.6

ArcSyn is a synthesizer instrument plug-in based on typical analogue synthesizer architecture, i.e., a “virtual analogue” synthesizer.

Unlike many virtual analogues, it doesn’t try and emulate a particular ‘real’ synthesizer, nor does it use 90% of your computer’s CPU time to emulate a filter which can be cloned on a 2″ (5 cm) square PCB with $5 worth of components :-)

Instead, it takes the “road less well travelled” and explores some unusual avenues of analogue (and digital) synthesis—the sort of capabilities you might find on a well-stocked modular synthesizer, including: unusual waveforms, dividers, logic functions, frequency shifters and so on. ArcSyn introduces the concept of LFO wave sequencing, allowing extremely complex modulation patterns.

Changes in ArcSyn v1.6

  • Oscillator phase reset.
  • 40+ new programs.
  • MIDI sustain pedal response fixed.

ArcSyn (VST/AU) is available for purchase for $99 USD/89 EUR/£69 GBP.
