BlauKraut Engineering updates Charlatan to v1.1.3 26th
BlauKraut Engineering has updated
to version 1.1.3.
Bug fix: corrected placement of non-linearities
in 4-pole low-pass filter. Mainly noticeable
with high resonance.
Filter key tracking: account for glide and
Introduced slight pitch tuning error of
voices in polyphonic mode.
Detune parameter is now non-linear to make
it easy to dial in small values.
Minor tweaking of presets.
Charlatan is a polyphonic,
subtractive virtual analog software synthesizer
plugin whose design focuses on sound quality and
easy usability. The design philosophy was to provide
a feature set just large enough to cover a wide
range of sounds rather than an infinite number of
parameters and modulation options cluttering the
user interface and distracting from the creative
process. That said, Charlatan’s synthesis
architecture is flexible enough to create all kinds
of sounds, from conventional classic leads, basses
and pads to weird blips and noises.
While making no compromises about
sound quality, the algorithms have been optimized
for efficient CPU usage making Charlatan well suited
as a ”bread and butter” synth even in projects with
a large number of plugin instances.
