Kriminal has released Felix, a freeware synthesizer inspired by the 1981 synth, the Octave Kitten.
The real powerful area of the Kitten was the modulation – the LFO / Sample+Hold routing to modulate the ADSR / VCO / VCF – it could produce many interesting effects and S&H sounds – ive tried to capture this in FELIX, as well as making it versatile in the normal spectrum of sounds.
- 1 VCO (saw/tri/pulse) plus white noise generator.
- 1 LFO – sine/square/S+H.
- 2 SubOsc’s : square (-1 and -2 oct).
- VCF – 4pole LP self oscillating filter.
- VCA – ADSR.
- 200+ Presets (Michael Cavallo, Steven West, Shamanix, Luftrum, DLN and musicorner).
Felix is available as a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC.
