Cherry Audio has released Voltage Modular 1.3.5. They tell us that this update features the new QWERTY Keyboard (above), which allows Voltage Modular to be played directly from your computer’s QWERTY keyboard. They say that it's ideal for rapidly auditioning presets, testing and building complex patches, or working with Voltage Modular when a MIDI controller isn’t available.
Cherry Audio has also released Octagon, described as a powerhouse sequencer that allows super fast and easy creation of rhythmically elaborate patterns and melodies. Sequences can be up to 32 steps, and each step contains up to 8 gate pulses with numerous modes for extended note values, legato play, repeats, or user-defined patterns within each sequence step. Each step also includes ratcheting, skip, and slide controls. A spokesperson told us, "Octagon’s unique slide implementation allows traditional-style synth portamento or 303-style constant rate slide. Octagon also offers numerous step play order modes including an innovative CV control mode for 'playing' steps via a keyboard controller or another sequencer."
