Blamsoft has released the VK-1 Viking Synthesizer as a VST plugin for Windows and Mac. Previously available as a Rack Extension for Reason, VK-1 offers an authentic emulation of a classic monophonic analog synthesizer.
The VST version comes with all new graphics with Retina support, new presets, and DSP enhancements providing a more rich, smooth, and creamy sound.
It has three continuously variable wave oscillators, two ladder filters with a Dual Lowpass or Highpass/Lowpass configuration, a multi-wave LFO, and two modulation busses. VK-1 uses state of the art DSP technology to accurately reproduce the sound of the hardware.
VK-1 comes with 228 presets in the categories Bass, Bright Lead, Electro Bass, FX, Percussive Lead, Soft Lead, and Synthwave. The 50 Electro Bass and 50 Synthwave presets were created by experienced sound designer eXode. The synth excels at thick bass and rich lead sounds.
VK-1 is available for 64-bit Windows XP or higher and macOS 10.12 or higher as a “pay what you want” download, with a suggested price of 59 USD/EUR.
