SPC Plugins has released version 1.3 of ArcSyn, a virtual analogue synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.
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 v1.3
- Updated GUI.
- Polyphony increased to 32 notes.
- Output stage soft-clipped to 0dB.
- Many small bug-fixes and improvements.
- Over 40 new programs.
ArcSyn for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for $99 USD/89 EUR/£69 GBP.
