Very good news from SPC Plugins! The developer has released a free update for the ArcSyn Synthesizer plugin. Version 3.0 features now a new Unison mode with up to 16 oscillator copies as well as 25 new programs that use the new mode.
ArcSyn is a synthesizer instrument plug-in based on typical analog synthesizer architecture, i.e., a “virtual analog” synthesizer. Unlike many virtual analogs, it doesn’t try and emulate a particular ‘real’ synthesizer, nor does it use 90% of your computer’s CPU time to emulate a filter which can be cloned on a 2″ (5 cm) square PCB with $5 worth of components.
Instead, it takes the “road less well-traveled” and explores some unusual avenues of analog (and digital) synthesis—the sort of capabilities you might find on a well-stocked modular synthesizer, including unusual waveforms, dividers, logic functions, frequency shifters and so on. ArcSyn also introduces the concept of LFO wave sequencing, allowing extremely complex modulation patterns.
Version 3.0.0 includes also a new demo mode which no longer produces random noise. Instead, it allows for 20 minutes of uninterrupted use and you can reload the plugin for another 20 minutes.
ArcSyn is available for VST/AU, priced at £69 GBP / 79 EUR / $89 USD. The update is free to current ArcSyn users.
