The deputy Mark II is a software instrument for Microsoft Windows (VST) and Apple macOS (VST/AU) in the tradition of classic string machines and early "polyphonic" synthesizers, written in native C++ code. The main features are:

  • Polyphonic string/synthesizer (Poly) section and monophonic synthesizer (Mono) section.
  • Built-in Ensemble and Phaser effects.
  • Flexible keyboard assignment for Poly and Mono section.
  • Poly section:
    • Up to 61 voices polyphony.
    • Two band-limited frequency divider-driven oscillator banks.
    • Sawtooth and PWM waveforms.
    • 2-pole multi-mode filter and ADS envelope per voice.
    • Global ADSR envelope for paraphonic modulation.
    • Resonator bank (3 zero-delay feedback filters).
  • Mono section:
    • Single VCO plus suboscillator and noise.
    • 4-pole zero-delay feedback lowpass filter.
    • ADSR envelope and LFO.
    • Output of Poly section can be send to filter input.
  • Double precision audio processing.
  • All parameters can be controlled by MIDI controllers.
  • Exchangeable graphics (for individual skinning).
  • Plug-in supports Windows and macOS (32-bit and 64-bit).

The deputy emulates an instrument that might have been built this way in the 1970s. Due to technical and economical reasons it would have been a compromise between which features a musician expected, what he was willing to pay for it, and what fitted in a single box. It is (technically speaking, and as to nowadays standards) a fairly limited instrument. However, I strongly believe that technical limitation can be a source of great creativity. Prost.
