We had an idea:
Develop a brand new synth here @ Kvr
Everything from the basis. First of all:
- Which kind of synth?
- Which name?
Could be interesting?
Contribute here with your ideas:

since KVR has many voices- it should be a "workstation" synth with lots of synthesis methods-
I think the best idea would be complex oscillators- but a simple subtractive VA-like layout- you would have additive/wavetable/sampler-looper/Rompler/FM/wave-drawing/shaper/PM/an d good-ol subtractive- along with RM/AM/Sync/etc and perhaps some other more creative ocs types-
basically a synth like Ethereal or Tera-like a software Z-1- lot's of osc types but one page GUI with simple filters and modififiers- basic FX with modulation [to be part of the synth- not just a tagged on FX] and NO sequencer or complex modulations-
it should just be called the KVR synth

It is here:

Yes, I agree with your idea!
So much that we did it. It is *exactly* our freeware synth "Solo"!
Only rompler is missing... you have many different oscillators (wavetable, physical modeled, formants, DSF, etc.) AM, FM, hard sync. Then a filter section. Then effects that are part of the synth... Yes, the old GUI makes it difficult to understand, but the new gui coming should show its structure better...
We have to build a different object...

Hey, this ain't SlashDot[.org]
(but I know of several SlashDotters that hang here, heck one of them modded me up once there!)

I can't believe I have missed this somehow! I checked out the info on solo, but the download page doesn't work. Is it not available anymore, or is Mozilla just toying with me??
btw I like the kvr synth idea

To tell you the truth, if I were going to pick something it wouldn't be a synth as such but a VST midi plug-in like Rythm & Chords. - but that's just me.
Posted: 1st November 2004 16:32
Yes, it is available!
Probably a problem with the web server. Please check later!

Wow. Several. Just imagine a beowulf cluster of those guys...

oops!!! wrong spot. edited and taken to the right thread..

Mmmhh... Probably it will be a granular synth with some physical modeled part in it...
Posted: 2nd November 2004 07:57
it should be an emulation of a classic synth- what about the arp2600 ?
Posted: 2nd November 2004 08:16
Mmmhhh... I should have a harp2600 to emulate it. Mmmhhh...
Posted: 2nd November 2004 10:48
An ARP 2500. Made with SynthEdit. Or a Buchla modular.
Posted: 4th November 2004 20:26
Ok, we are at granular synthesis.
(look at sknote forum...)
Any more idea about the name?
Posted: 4th November 2004 22:20
How about a polyphonic Crumar Spirit?
Posted: 4th November 2004 22:29
And I would like to have some modular possiblities,
like a filtersection to add or leave as I like and same with FX, and maybe with different osc. Lets say we have 2 or 3 osc, and I can choose how many I want, and I want them to be shut totally, making it CPU friendly .

not a monster, not an emulation. something which does one very particular job extremely well. and has at least one really original idea in it....

not a bad idea to develop something here at kvr. I think there's enough instruments available already though.
A type of plugin I desperately miss, is a good quality, reasonable budget harmonizer.
What about developing a VST effect (a harmonizer), not an instrument here?
If it got to be an instrument, I have to say I'm very happy with for example Symptohm, I don't see the need for a granular synth. I like the idea of developing a virus type of synth much better (I know they are available, but I don't want to torture my machine with even more hardware in form of pci cards)...
