Kern is a VST 2.4 polyphonic software synthesizer plug-in for Microsoft Windows (both 32 and 64 bit) designed to run with and to be fully controlled by modern MIDI keyboard controllers like the Novation Impulse. It is written in native C++ code for high performance and extremely low CPU consumption.
A spokesperson told us, "This simple thingy is designed to work with modern hardware MIDI controllers, for example the Novation Impulse. (Almost) each parameter has a dedicated hardware control - thus the parameter set is quite limited (but the sound is not). It can run on the V-Machine, so together with the Impulse one gets a nice stand-alone (i.e. no PC needed) synth."
