KarmaFX has released version 1.0 (RC2) of KarmaFX Synth Modular.

The final version of this donationware Advanced Simulated Analog Modular Synthesizer will be released one or two weeks from now.

Changes in v1.0 RC2

  • Amplifier will now skip streams from input modules if amplification is 0 for more than half a second
  • Tweaked synth engine performance and reduced vst dll sizes for faster loading
  • GUI: Double clicking or Shift-clicking on a wire arrow now allows you to insert a module on this wire
  • GUI: Additive and Pad magnitude editor is now log scaled for easier editing
  • GUI: Renamed all “Component” references to “Module” for consistency with the manual
