About the synth:

Sunrizer synth (previously known as ‘Horizon synth’) is a virtual analog synthesizer that takes the definition of iOs synthesizer to the next level. Thanks to carefully designed architecture and heavy usage of coprocessor it blurs the boundaries between iOs and hardware synthesizers. Sunrizer was built to perform and works perfectly with any MIDI keyboard or sequencer. A lot of research has been done in order to achieve unheard warmth and clarity.

Highlights

True SuperSaw sound emulation, first found in the legendary Roland JP-8000 synthesizer. SuperSaw is a layered waveform consisting of multiple saw waves which are detuned to create an extremely full and epic sound. It’s possible to use 2 supersaw oscillators per voice * 7 polyphony = 98 saw oscillators playing the same time!

Two independent filters per voice with configurable routing. You can select between various filter types including classic resonant LP,HP,BP,Notch and less common like Comb and Formant. The Morph Group function lets you continuously morph of up to 30 parameters in a sound (including effects), using only the modulation wheel.

Oscillators

2 warm-sounding analog modelled oscillators per voice + 2 sub-oscillators (except SuperSaw). Available waveforms: Saw, PWM pulse,Triangle, SuperSaw.

Oscillator 2 hard-sync and configurable routing. Osc-mix, ring modulator. White noise oscillator.

Flexible multi filters

Two independent filters per voice with configurable routing. You can select between various filter types including: resonant LP,HP,BP,Notch, Comb and Formant. Configurable routing: serial or parallel with bypass option. ADSR envelope, keyboard tracking and full LFO control.

Modulation

Two LFOs per voice. It’s possible to assing each LFO to almost any parameter. 3 LFO running modes: trigger, 1 shot, global. 6 waveforms, phase and fade-in knobs. The Morph Group function lets you continuously morph of up to 30 parameters in a sound (including effects), using only the modulation wheel. Two Modulation ADSR Envelopes for amplitude and filters cutoff. Pitch and modulation wheels.

Effects

A number of effects are built in: distortion, chorus, equalizer, stereo delay. All parameters can be modulated using mod-wheel.

Cool looking – EasyQ and EngineersFilter – free effect plug-ins for Windows

April 5, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

rs-met has released updated versions of EasyQ and EngineersFilter, two free effect plug-ins for Windows.

after some beta testing and bugfixing (thx to all who participated), it’s now done. updated versions for EasyQ and EngineersFilter have been released. for EasyQ, it’s only a maintenence update with a little bugfix related to colorscheme handling.

EngineersFilter now includes two new approximation methods: Bessel and Papoulis. The Bessel design approximates a linear phase response in its passband and the Papoulis design achieves the maximum negative slope at the cutoff frequency when a monotonically decreasing magnitude response is assumed.

EasyQ and EngineersFilter are available as freeware VST plugins for Windows.
