Carl Free Software, News Leave a Comment

GyL Synths has created a new modular wavetable/FM hybrid synthesizer Constructor for free.

Main features:
– 2 independent synth layers in parallel and/or FM mode
– 1-1 wavetable oscillators with 135 waveforms in each
– independent pitch tuning, pitchbend ranges, unison, pitch sweep by amp envelopes
– 2 LFOs to independent vibrato, wah and tremolo
– 2 filter blocks with own envelopes, keyboard tracing, feedback, distortion and x-y pads to cutoff and resonance
– the filter and amp envelopes (A, D/R, S type) velocity sensitivity is adjustable
– the new FM solution uses the whole line’s components in the sound shaping (osc-filter-envelops) and can provide interesting effects
– the lower layer can be switched off and the level and the FM level can be adjusted manually, by velocity and pitch value
– 2 delay modules
– the upper delay has very wide range and some modulations ; can create metallic and changing in time effects
– the delay envelope adds time and pitch changes
– the multi-tap delay has 1 incoming + 8 independent delayed signals
– step times, levels (standard falling or custom levels), panorama and some formant filtering for every signal
. independent pitch bend ranges and modwheel levels (LFO depth & cutoff) for the layers
– 4 different knobs style can be selected and saved to any preset
– the Hold button keeps the last pressed note
– init button for fast sound design start
– double click sets the knobs to default value.
– right click for MIDI forget/learn
– 16 presets from GyL and 64 from Kujashi (in .fxb soundbanks)
– the 64 bit version was created later and due to technical limitations had to modify the filter coponents ; it means that the presets are ported and nearly the same but are not compatible ; use the corresponding
