KV331 Audio has released the standard version of SynthMaster, their new semi-modular software synthesizer and multi-FX plug-in for Windows. As a software synthesizer, SynthMaster combines many different synthesis methods such as additive synthesis, subtractive synthesis, ring modulation, amplitude modulation, frequency / phase modulation, pulse width modulation, osc sync and waveshaping. As a multi-fx plug-in, it features 8 band parametric EQ/filterbank, 16 band Vocoder, Stereo Tremolo, Stereo Chorus, Stereo Delay and Stereo Reverb.
SynthMaster comes with 200 presets covering leads, basses, pads, keys, organs, brasses, sequences and effects. It also features 150 tutorial presets that describe sound programming with SynthMaster in detail.
SynthMaster is available for Windows in VST, RTAS and standalone formats for $99 as a downloadable purchase form the KV331 Audio website.
The current version of SynthMaster FREE! and SynthMaster Standard is v18.104.22.168, which includes the following changes since v22.214.171.124:
- Updated Installer: With version 1.0.4, Visual C++ 2005 Runtime Libraries are no more installed during installation. All binaries are now statically linked instead of dynamic linking. With this change, Windows Installer 3.1 is not a prerequisite for the installer any more.
- Full vs. Latest Setups: With version 1.0.4, users can download either the full installer of the latest installer that only installs the latest binaries.
- (Standard version) SynthMaster asks the user authorization details each time it is run. For regular users (as opposed to users being members of the Administrators group), SynthMaster was still asking authorization details each time it is run. This issue is fixed with version 1.0.4
- SynthMaster crashes when an LFO modulator has feedback. This issue is fixed with version 1.0.4.
