KX77FREE has released a VA synth, KX-synth-X16, based on the VCS3 but with added features. Here's what he has to say about it...
It is unusual for me to work on VA.
But when Burnie asked us Nova and me to do a VCS3 plugin I was interested. This old EMS synthesizer is great with its modern matrix concept, its joystick and its possibility to do feedback patches.
Nova collected some docs and Scot Solida sent to Nova his recordings.
I used them to research the way to do a close oscillator simulation.
I did a new filter based on the KX filter code.
Nova built a modern skin.
We did not built another SE clone of this synthesizer
but added some great features on the original concept.
Three variable shape oscillators.
Two external inputs.
LP filter, 18 db per octave with self oscillating
Same structure of the matrix (16*16)
Modern skin with notepad and variable color background.
Keyboard controls to the oscillators and filter, -10 volts to 10 volts, useful for keyboard scaling.
256 mini knobs to adjust the plot modulation, 0 to 1.
The original ASR (trapezoid) is extended to 2 ADSR with Host synchronization.
Delay fx with Host synchronization.
