With the download and voting stage of the KVR Developer Challenge 2014 in full swing we're posting a series of news items highlighting each release. You can download the entries for free and make a donation to the prize fund if you wish to do so here.
Paraphrasis by Virtual Analogy is an Open Source spectral resynthesis synthesizer which can model any sound with only one sonic sample. It is based on modified Loris - an Open Source sound modeling and processing software package - and JUCE.
Only two parameters are needed:
- frequency pitch of a sample.
- frequency resolution of spectral analysis.
Paraphrasis has a 16 voice polyphony and has a "Reverse" option to analyse the sample backward so it is synthesised reversed as well.
Changes in v1.0.1:
- Fixed: plugin did not load on some Win Hosts.
- Fixed: VST3 version did not clean buffer before synthesising new samples.
