Eplex7 DSP has announced the release of its latest software synthesizer instrument. Klerhaim N1 uses circuit emulation technology to deliver an authentic analog synth experience.
The plugin combines various vintage analog circuits from 60s-80s era synths in a single complex synthesizer.
In real analog synthesizer everything is moving, changing, modulating, living…analog synth is like a living organism. Nothing is static. The electricity and circuits are in constant “chaos”. Analog oscillator waveforms are not precise, sharp and always the same like in digital synths. They are changing their shape, have a noise, harmonics, ringing, modulating their tone / pitch, volume etc.
Also output from oscillator module is saturated. It is not just output of whole synthesizer but output of every circuit / module. More volume of oscillator = more saturation and color.
Analog envelopes (modulating filter, amp or pitch) are not linear like in digital synths. They are exponential and changing their shape in time / different one with every different note. Including some noise and harmonics too. The peaks / spikes are not digitally sharp but analogue round. The filters are creating small distortion / harmonics. They are not perfectly stable. The values are changing 0,1%. Including is the noise and output is saturated. Simply everything is “living” in analog synthesizer because of laws of physics / electricity.
Every note sounds a little bit different, that is why analog sound is rich, organic, warm, fat and like real instrument. We have successfully emulated analog behavior, individual circuits and electronic components.
Available as a VST plugin for Windows, Klerhaim N1 is on sale at an introductory price of 34.90 EUR (regular 59 EUR).
