SKnote - Grainz v0.4.0 (Pc/Free)

  • 1 physical modeled "string" oscillator (plucked, bowed). Plucking/bowing position, pickup position, stiffness, damp

  • 2 granular oscillators. Loads wav mono files and "granulizes" them. From sample playing to complete destruction. Position, grain width, grain fade out, single_shot/loop, position lfo

  • Multi-stage drag-able envelopes for amplitude, grain position, filter frequency

  • Granular -> physical modeled oscillators interaction. From resonance to weird effects

  • Multimode resonant filters with resonance and "action" control

  • "Spread" effects

  • Pre-post-filter delay lines with feedback. Separate send for each oscillator

  • Arpeggiator with chord detection

  • Control matrix

  • Graphical user interface by Rick Christy

(Grey features are going to be implemented in next versions)


* Physical modeled oscillator now has three modes:
1. Plucked.
2. Bowed by oscillator2.
3. Manually bowed.
* Oscillator2 now has two modes:
1. Normal.
2. Bow (amplitude envelope is bow velocity for oscillator1).
* Granular synthesis now works in two modes:
1. Waveform (the grains span and stretch the waveform).
2. Granular (the grains set the frequency, the waveform gives harmonic content). This new mode makes waveform use a lot more versatile (ever in-tune).
* The synth can load up to 100 waveforms.
* Grain width has been set to a better range.
* Physical modeled oscillator has been optimized.
* Bugfixes.

This is an excellent free VST synth! Recommended.
