Puremagnetik has announced Verv, a virtual synthesizer instrument inspired by tape loops, Mellotrons and other time-worn analog recordings.

Puremagnetik Verv

Verv is modeled after the 1970s Freeman String Symphonizer and ARP Solina. It features a dual-oscillator and carefully constructed ensemble modulation reminiscent of the classics.

Verv also employs a final stage Tape Loop effect that emulates a splice of tape that can be “aged” to varying degrees. Once turned up to its maximum range, this effect creates wow, flutter and other worn-out tape artifacts.

Despite being designed as a string synthesizer, Verv is capable of a wide variety of sounds. It has a morphable saw to triangle oscillator. Similar to classic Buchla synthesizers, you can add or subtract harmonics with the “Shape” control. There is also a dedicated Sub oscillator – fixed as a pulse wave – that can be used as a standalone bass synth, similar to an MC-202.

Verv features

  • Vintage string synthesizer emulation.
  • Tape loop and wow and flutter effect.
  • Classic ensemble effect.
  • Integrates into any VST / Audio Units compatible host.
  • Includes a collection of factory presets.

Verv is now available to Spark subscribers ($8 USD/month). After one month it will be available a la carte for $20 USD.
