Simple-Media - Super Spook Keys (Pc/Free)

Designed to re-create the sound of a 'Theramin' and offering control either using a MIDI keyboard or using the mouse to drag the glowing spot across the 'chart' for more authentic 'Theramin' style play. Spook Keys also includes the following features:

* sine, sawtooth, triangle and pulse waves
* variable key in and out response
* variable LFO for vibrato and tremolo
* pan, chorus (detuning), stereo spread and glide controls
* filtered, ping-pong, stereo delay.


Midi playable virtual Theramin.

CPU Usage - low.


To install simply unzip and copy the dll to your VSTI plugins folder.

Controls for this synth are as follows:

* The Chart - you can play spook keys either using your keyboard or by dragging the glowing dot across the chart

* Volume - controls the overall volume level

* Spread - controls the amount of the stereo field covered by the tone

* Pan - controls the placing of the tone in the stereo field

* Glide - portamento control sliding between notes when one key is pressed while the previous key is still held - higher values equal slower portamento

* Key In - this controls how quickly the note rises in both volume and frequency from zero to the note played

* Key Out - this controls how quickly the note falls in both volume and frequency to zero from the note played

* Delay - the delay incorporates a filter that consists of 1 high pass and 1 low pass filter chained in series, the high pass filter's Cutoff being set lower than the low pass filter's - Resonance is also controllabale, Width is the difference between the high pass and low pass cutoff - Time is self explanatory, Feedback is the amount of signal that is fed back in to the delay - the delay bounces the left and right channels back and forth (ping-pong)

* Modulation - you can set the LFO Rate (frequency) and Depth

* Wave and Pulse Width - you can select from sine, saw, triangle and pulse waves - pulse wave also supports pulse width modulation for more tonal variation

* Thickness - this is a chorusing effect created by detuning 2 oscillators.


* tweak key in and key out values for more realistic 'Theramin' style play

* spook keys can create so much more than just 'Theramin' tones

* making drastic changes to the LFO and Delay settings you can create some quite surprising effects

* with more subtle control settings you can produce great progressive leads.
