New: version 1.1 update adds velocity modulation of the Filter EG . ds80 has been added to the Korg Logue software. This is a wavetable-based user-oscillator with sounds from the Digisound DS-80-21 VCDO , a 1980’s vintage rack module. The oscillator is based on the viper engine, using additive synthesis to generate high quality output without aliasing. Features include wavetable modulation from the Shape control and Filter EG, adjustable table interpolation for smooth or stepped sweeps, a bandwidth limiter, and simulation of analogue control voltage drift.
New: version 1.1 update with bug fixes and velocity modulation of the Filter EG . ds80 is a Logue user-oscillator which emulates the digital waveforms from the vintage Digisound DS-80-21 VCDO rack module . Key features: 32 waveforms in 4+1 banks reproduces variable-sample-rate waveform artefacts alias-free sample generation single oscillators plus white noise waveforms can be selected individually or swept smoothly as a wavetable bandwidth limiter analogue tuning drift Filter EG modulation of wavetable position, incorporating velocity sensitivity The plugin is a free download and uses the same technology as viper which uses additive wavetable synthesis to emulate the Korg DW-8000, Kawai K3, Ensoniq ESQ1 and PPG Wave .
The Korg Prologue and Minilogue-XD feature the ability to load digital user-oscillators that extend the range of possible sounds. Good candidates for these are emulations of oscillators from early digital/analogue hybrid synthesisers, replicating waveforms and wavetables from instruments such as the Korg DW-8000 , the Kawai K3 , the Ensoniq ESQ-1 and PPG Wave . But, there is a catch. Logue plugins run on a relatively slow processor, an ARM Cortex M4, with only 32KiB of shared code and data space.
viper is a pack of four user oscillators for the Korg Prologue, Minilogue-XD and NTS1 that provide waveforms and wavetables from classic hybrid synthesisers: viper-dw with 16 waveforms from the Korg DW-8000 viper-k3 with 31 waveforms from the Kawai K3 viper-esq with 32 waveforms from the Ensoniq ESQ-1 viper-ppg with 32 wavetables from the PPG Wave Key features: dual oscillators high quality, alias-free synthesis core with 16 bit sample resolution simulated multi-sampling allows tonal shifts at different key ranges slew-rate limiting for glitch-free modulation single-stage pitch envelope for ‘auto-bend’ effects and white noise generator1 wavetable modulation using the filter EG and shape LFO2 At the heart of viper are four additive synthesis models that reconstruct the original waveforms in real time Up to 128 harmonics to be generated with full anti-aliasing and 16 bit sample resolution, giving a clear, musical sound.
