Enjoy! And thanks to Irion for the suggestion. VK-1 Viking Synthesizer is an authentic emulation of a classic monophonic analog synthesizer. It has three continuously variable wave oscillators, two ladder filters with a Dual Lowpass or Highpass/Lowpass configuration, a multi-wave LFO, and two modulation busses. VK-1 uses state of the art DSP technology to accurately reproduce the sound of the hardware.

FYI the classic monophonic synth that it emulates is a Moog Voyager, Rack Mount edition. Great choice! Hopefully I have time this month to participate.

Great choice --- looks like a lot of fun. Any chance that you might allow commercial plugin effects this month? When you allowed that a while ago it made for a fun OSC and I don't think there was an advantage in terms of overall score for people who used their purchased plugins for compression, reverb and EQ -- it makes workflow easier though. Thanks!

Looks promising, but the vst is not recognized by any host on my Mac Pro 10.12.6...
I tried Logic, Mainstage, Bitwig, Digital Performer and Ardour. The install shell command looks wierd. Seems Windows only, the claim for mac is not backed by any test... Too bad, will miss it...

Correction, in Max/MSP I can load it...

In Cubase 9.5 I have had some
  • Hung Notes
  • Notes not played at all

More symptoms:
If I cycle thru a midi part with only three notes in it the first gets played the other two not. Most of the time not even the first gets played. Only after a midi reset a new note will be played. Probably Midi Note Off is not received and processed correctly.
The hearable release time of the patch I have selected ("Bass - Dirty Bass") is quite long when I can make it to play a note, though I have reduced it in both envelopes to zero.
I have tried to fiddle with the Gate and KB Mode, but no setting was able to produce reliable output.

P.S.: Has anyone already read thru the "heritage" page on the blamsoft site...hilarious ;-)

I'll sit this one out as I'm still on Windows 32bit XP-aladotious. But I can't wait to hear all of the great entries made with the VK-1

In addition to beta testing, I have personally tested VK-1 in these configurations without any issues:

macOS 10.12.6/10.13.2:
Reason 10.0d72
Bitwig 2.2.2
Ableton Live 9.7.5
Reaper 5.26/5.52/5.70
Cubase Elements 9.5.0
MuLab 7.7.0

Windows 10:
Reason 10.0d72
Bitwig 2.2.2
Ableton Live 9.7.5
Reaper 5.60/5.70
Cubase Elements 9.5.0
MuLab 7.7.0

I can debug the synth in these configurations. If someone could please create a project file from Reason, Bitwig, Ableton Live, or Reaper that demonstrates the problem and send it to info@blamsoft.com I could find the bug.
