Blue Synth PM – Free phase
modulation virtual synth 23rd October 2013
Blue Synth PM is a free phase
modulation virtual synthesizer. It can produce lush
pads or powerful leads. It is available either as a
standalone application or as VSTi for using in a
host application such as Sonar, Cubase, Ambleton etc
There are two oscillators to create
the carrier waves which can both be phase modulated
by a sine wave. You can choose the carrier waveform
and apply an attack, decay, sustain and release
envelope whose amount can be adjusted. The Freq PM
knobs control the phase modulation frequency, 0 is
no modulation 1 is full modulation at half sampling
rate. Oscillator 2 can be detuned.
The output can be
fed through two filter banks with cutoff, resonance
and track as well as ADSRs’ affecting the filters.
Programs can be saved. There are 10 factory sounds
preloaded in the synth courtesy of Yoa out of the 20
available program slots in each program bank.
Programs/banks can be saved as text files or as fxp/fxb
files using the host program for vsti. Please set
midi and audio preferences in standalone version
first. In the VSTi the host settings fixes these
parameters. The download is free. All I ask is for
feedback and ideas for additions or modifications.
Also additional programs/banks welcome.
