-Four operators with independent parameters such as volume, panning, modulation index, feedback, three different frequency modifiers (ratio, free and fine) and ADSR volume envelope parameters. The operators can be independently switched to white noise mode
-Flexible routing allowing setting the output operator (with some limitations) as well as the percentage of signal that is simply added to the final output, enabling additive synthesis. By default, operator 4 is routed to operator 3, operator 3 to operator 2 and operator 2 to operator 1.
-Master volume and master frequency parameters
-Four LFOs capable of targeting most operator parameters as well as most parameters of lower index LFOs.
-128 voices (using them all simultaneously might consume quite a bit of CPU time though)
C&S are currently developing their first VST instrument (Possibly also AU) . Similar to some of their Reaktor instruments it will be a sampler instrument for House, Deep House, Deep Tech, Minimal productions. It will soon go into beta testing phase and is expected to be published in the near future.
If you want to participate in the beta testing , especially for Mac, write to email@example.com . Naturally you’ll get the instrument for free then, but valuable documented feedback is wanted.
This tube preamp emulation has been developed Philipp Bulling as a thesis work. Philipp has been offering the plugin in VST format for some time on his own website. He has now moved on to new areas for some time already but didn’t want to let down his users. Hence, DDMF took over the code and will continue to offer the plugin as freeware, with the intent to further improve it and maybe add some more bells and whistles in the future. Download here.
