Avenger was one of the highlights of the last year in the VST Synthesizer market and now becomes even bigger and better. Vengeance Sound announced today an impressive new update for Avenger Synthesizer with custom sample support for the oscillators. This opens the door to many more sound design options. I can’t say something personal about Avenger because I don’t have yet the chance to test it. Maybe in future.
Meet our new alpha and omega of synthesis: Vengeance Producer Suite Avenger is here! The most versatile and best sounding synth you will ever encounter. There is nothing VPS Avenger can’t do, it offers you tons of features and a gigantic growing library from some of the best sound designers on this planet.
New in Avenger v1.1.0
- Custom samples can now be loaded into the OSC via drag and drop from the browser.
- Added loop editor page for these new imported samples.
- Added skin selector on the SYS page.
- New skin: COBALT BLUE by Satya.
- Added masterfilter post gain (for post drive gain adjustments).
- Added new live play option for the ARP on the SYS page: “Poly Arp quantize”. Defines the grid where new notes are positioned when you play live.
- Added a new shaper mode “EQ-only”. The distortion is bypassed and you now only have a (polyphonic) 2 band EQ for each note.
- Osc phase & microfade modulation can now be assigned via drag n drop.
- Improved GUI Loading time.
- Improved OSC-Wave selector open time.
- Improved visualization: fast-modulation ring movements now displaying 100% movements correctly.
- Converting a shape & converting a multisample does create a tune file automatically. You can open it with a text editor for transpose and gain settings.
- Removed syspage option for “sustain pedal mode”. Mode will now automatically be in “SUSTAIN” mode, when the sustain pedal is NOT used for anything in the mod matrix. If the sustain pedal is used as a switch for something else (for example switching minor/major), it will not sustain notes endlessly as long as this modulation is active.
- Removed syspage option for “accelerated sampleload”. This mode is now permanently “on”, since it had no negative consequences.
- While transposing / moving ARP pattern notes will no longer reset the transpose value when clipping on the max or min height.
- Now ARP pattern notes will reset (by clicking middle mousebutton) to the nearest octave. For example a 14 transpose will reset to 12, instead of 0.
- Fixed click-noise issue in resampler when numWaves > available samples.
- Fixed an issues with loading VINTAGE CHORUS presets. Now all Chorus factory presets will sound as intended.
- Creating a new TG Module does not reset the SHUFFLE value any more.
- Display for Modulation ring for cutoff knob hung with the last MIDI note. This is no longer the case now.
- Fixed: orange triangle hung in the cutoff, even if there was no assigned modulation.
- The editor remembers selected TABS correct now.
- Drumkits did not save correct after function “DrumKit copy sample to slot”. This has been fixed.
- When you save a Drumkit, now the correct last location when saving a drum kit is remembered.
- There was a sorting issue in the mod matrix when removing entries that was created earlier than other items in the same source-group.
- Wavetable envelope sequencer pattern mode “PING-PONG” works again as intended.
- Route View displayed “ERROR” after removing a second filter module that was used in the routing. This has now been fixed.
- Wavetable Env-Sequencer Mode “SILENCE” is now really “silent” again.
