Vengeance Producer Suite (VPS) Avenger facts:
Took me the whole morning to gather this list, maybe I even forgot something to mention... Wow, I knew it can do many many things, but this is quite a bit insane :D
Btw VPS Avenger is TAB based, that means a preset grows as you design it. Need more OSCs? Just add them, need another Filter or more ARPs? Just add it. Thats why its "up to 8 OSCs" for example. A preset can have just 1 or 4 or even 8.
We also did not limit the possibilities and freedom this offers: You could create 1000 OSCs playing on a single note. Does not make much practical sense, but if you want you could do that - we won't stop you :)
• up to 8 OSC Modules:
  • each OSC with own V-Saw (Supersaw) (1-7 voices, 1-4 octs, pan spread)
  • each OSC with its own vibrato LFO (which can modulate every V-Saw (Supersaw) voice seperately)
  • each OSC with own Chorder (Note Stacker, Unison)
  • each OSC with additional Sub OSC model
  • each OSC can have its own synthesis model (see "GENERATORS" for details)
• OSC Transformation parameters:
  • Xcite (bending the waveform in any direction)
  • Formant (pulse with modulate any waveform)
  • Bit/Crush (Rate/Bit reduce any waveform)
  • Sync (easy sync mode with built in modulation env)
  • Volume / Pan / Transpose / Finetune / Random&Alternate Pitch
  • Noise Generator (level, noise color / noise rate reducer, stereo spread)
  • FM & AM (if you wish Alias free mode), FM source: countless basic waveforms, noise or own custom drawable shapes. Rate is syncable to semitones/octaves/7ths etc)
  • FFT editor for each OSC Module: Edit all spectral content in realtime, delete odd harmonics, boost octaves performs morphs or create custom filtersweeps
  • Randomizer
  • many FFT presets (organ overtone registers, crazy stuff etc...)
  • use our unique feature to randomly pulsate every band!
•  up to 8 ARP Modules:
  • up / down / random / poly modes
  • editable note lengths and note transposes / velocities
  • each arp has up to 4 sub patterns (A B C D), means you can make complex melodies of 4x 32notes
  • hundreds of ARP presets 
• up to 8 Step SQ Modules:
  • contour, decay, gate time, editable step lengths and velocity
  • perfectly synces Step SQ
  • Can be quickly used as TranceGate effect
  • does not click
  • stereo mode (L/R)
  • comes with many presets, even such as sidechain simulations, rhythmic gates etc...
• up to 8 Mod Envelope Modules:
  • free configurable envelopes, add as many points as you like
  • can also be in sync mode (quarter/triplet) to create moving and unique patterns
  • countless trigger modes, such as firt/last notes, arpeggio, bassdrum from drum SQ etc
  • can oneshot, loop, loop with release phase, ping pong etc...
• up to 8 Pitch Envelope Modules:
  • BiPolar Pitch envelope where you can add as many additional points as you like
  • sync and trigger modes like in the Mod Envelope
  • portamento modes: normal, poly, legato and poly legato (yes) with custom depth and portamento pitch curve
  • editable Pitchbend lag time
• up to 4 AMP Modules:
  • OSCs can be routet in different AMP Modules:
  • each AMP module has its own (analog) AHDSR envelope, but can be triggered from other env sources, such as MOD Envelope, too
  • spike parameter, which REALLY spikes this time. You have been warned! :)
  • volume / Pan / Keytrack
  • stereo spread parameter
• up to 4 FILTER Modules + Master Filter Module:
  • OSCs can be routet in different FILTER Modules              
  • each FILTER module has its own (analog) AHDSR envelope, but can be triggered from other env sources, such as MOD Envelope, too
  • at the moment 47 Filtertypes, all basic filter types as well as analog filter, comb filter, talking/vowel filters, peakfilters, fm/crush, TB filter etc...
  • resonance type selectable: additive or volume compensated
  • each filter has Drive, Drive oversampled and a neat Comb filter
• up to 4 SHAPER Modules:
  • the Shaper modules add distortion (per voice!) for each osc which is routet into it
  • at the moment 17 unique distortion models
  • two pre distortion EQ bands to shape the distortion tone
  • stereo split mode
  • can be pre or post FILTER or AMP modules
• up to 4 LFO Modules:
  • 17 LFO Shapes to chose from +3 freely drawable shapes
  • fade in / delay
  • change offset (y axis) phase (x axis)
  • countless trigger modes, such as firt/last notes, arpeggio, bassdrum from drum SQ etc

  • triplet or quarter mode
  • roll function for each note (x2, x3, x4 etc)
  • each note has velocity, pan, pitch or gate time
  • multiple selection tool: draw a box and select multiple notes, delete them, move them (with cursor arrows up/down/left/right) or st the velocity for all at once
  • many special modes: flip, reverse, mirror, copy/fill blocks etc
• powerful routing system:
  • add new modules and re-arrange the order the signal passes the modules for each OSC
  • apply send FX
  • graphic routing help system: rightclick on a module in the OSC routing diagram lets a cross-hair apear, to show you where this module is located in the GUI
• unique new Modmatrix system:
  • "Drag and Drop" creation of ModMatrix entries. Just drag a source and drop it to any target you want on the GUI
  • "grouped" mod matrix. Means you can change all modmatrix assigments with 1 click to a LFO assignment for example
  • "+" (additive) or "%" (percentage) modes
  • lag parameter. Smoothens the modulation, giving it inertia (for wha wha etc...)
  • cool new mod sources, such as PORTAMENTO glide (for example open the filter with the glide movement)
  • almost everything in VPS Avenger can be connected and modulated
• MACRO Controllers:
  • All Factory presets are pre-routet with cool modulations on these Macro Controllers
  • 3 Macro knobs
  • 2 Macro buttons

  • global shuffle factor: All shuffles (ARP, StepSQ, DrumSQ etc) are linked to each other
  • parameter lock: lock your shuffle, volume or filter settings during preset change
  • powerful UNDO function: whatever you did, it can be UNDOne with 1 click

•              classic VA Synthesesis
Regular synthesis with saw, square, sine, noise, tri etc... 7x Supersaw in cobination with 5x chorder module and sub osc (all PER OSC!), sounding wonderfully analog and fat.
•              Oscillator Shapes:
You can import and convert ANY 1 cycle waveform sample into an Oscillator shape. Once the waveform is imported, you can transform it in every direction possible, 100% alias free.
there are thousands of hand selected shapes to chose from in VPS Avengers factory library. Many emulate the shapes of classic gear or complex digital shapes, dubstep screams, real instruments etc...
•              Freeform:
You can freely draw your own OSC shapes. Use a pencil or draw lines, use smoothening parameters or normalize, fade in/outs as help to create every shape you can imagine.
•              Wavetable Synthesis:
if you stack up to 128 Oscillator Shapes you will have a Wavetable. Wavetables can be morphed seamleassy and have their own powerful editor and morphing envelopes
VPS Avengers factory library will come with more than 600 top notch wavetables, ranging from all kind of synthesis tricks, vocals, harmonic/disharmonic spectrals, FM or real instrument morphs. Of yourse you can load and create your
own wavetables.
•              Resample:
Basically this is a wavetable editor, this Synthesis mode lets you cycle through long wave files, to explore microscopic grains as an OSC source.
•              Multisamples:
Each of VPS Avengers 8 Oscillators can also be a Multisample player. With our new "Sample Stacker" feature you can layer up to 4 multisamples in each OSC module with 1 click. VPS Avenger comes with a huge library of more than 1000 Multisamples, ranging from
pianos & organs, synths, real instruments, voices etc. Furthermore there are 2 special Sample Sources: Attack Clicks and Organic Noises which are great layer additions.
•              Drumkits:
This are real drumkits with their own drum edit page and a exclusive new Drum Sequencer. VPS Avenger comes with more than 160 Drumkits from all possible genres, while each drumkit holds 12 perfectly mixed and matches
drumsamples. Furthermore each drumkit has its own Drum Sequencer pattern. You can Change the Kits or the Pattern seperately, which gives you endless combinations. Of course you can create your own kits by filling it with normal drum samples.
•              Granular Synthesis:
Every OSC can be a full granular module: Load one of the many granular samples from the factory sounds into it ot drag and drop your own samples Explore the sample being played back in hundreds of small grains. Pitch, spread, reverse these grains, play forward, backward or in whatever speed or direction your want by using our internal powerful granular envelope. Insane and unlimited possibilites - and a lot of fun!

• Real FM synthesis:
Avengers easy but powerful FM & AM engine let you create your wildest FM fantasies: Modulate to countless FM shapes, your own custom FM shapes or "cross frequency-modulate" with other oscillators, or other oscillators, which have been cross modulated with other FM sources. Highly flexible, complex but easy to handle and - if you wish - we also have an "alias free FM mode"

• Feedback Synthesis:
Avengers perfectly tuned new comb filter gives you the possibility of feedback / string simulation synthesis: Use short pluck samples as resonator impulses for guitar string like sounds or use waveforms with strong feedback for screaming sounds. Add a shaper module for further control and more interesting frequency spectrums or stack two or more comb filter modules for complete feedback mayhem!

This looks to be a very capable synth. Has Rene Keilwerth ever done synths before? (Not like a rompler / drumsynth.)

Protection will probably be Synchrosoft.

will there be a functional demo at release date?

also, could you please elaborate more about FM? are we talking about one of the OSCs as carrier and a modulator of choice, or will it be possible to conceive an "algorithm" and emulate for example, a DX7 with 6 OSCs modulating eachother?

I guess, if you take time to write down each and every feature of Serum or Icarus, you will end up with a list like this one. The GUI preview seems like it will have pretty clear and logical layout.

Hope to hear how it sounds soon :wink:

Now all we need is Oculus Rift compatibility in order to switch that thing on and manipulate some 3D knobs.

Unless it uses samples as oscillators ( a possibility) it will need cpu my friend. No way around it. It's impressive on paper, but I won't go anywhere near nor support anything that has an association with ilok.

My only concern is how CPU intensive its going to be.

I can tell you when optimization is really finished. At the moment its not end-optimized and CPU is still "ok".
The CPU consumption *really* depends how deep your preset is designed. A simple Saw with 7x supersaw takes just 2%, but this grows with the effects and features you use, so the question is difficult to answer. How many Reverbs are used? How many modulation parameters? How many filters? etc... We have a look on the CPU meter during preset design of course, so we will optimize all presets for the lowest CPU usage possible.

damn.. I have a top of the line computer. seriously. it's a skylake 6700k i7 with fast ddr4 memory. Win10. and Serum still annoys the crap out of me in that regard! :scared:
