Hello people. Some of you might heard of Voyager synthesizer project I worked eons ago.

Is a really simple substractive synthesizer. I had in mind originally sell as shareware on my site http://www.aodix.com under low price, but changed mind recently and decided to finish a few bits of the code, and thought that would be good bundle aodix with this synthesizer. So now it's released as freeware.

At the moment my time is fully dedicated to Directwave VSTi/FLStudio and Aodix so it's not a good idea keep the synthesizer in the dust.

Sound demo:

Vocoder Demo

Presets banks by Ears and Joman respectively:

http://www.platinumears.com/ears_Voyager-Bank.zip
https://home.comcast.net/~jmalvey1/jomalbank.zip

The goodies:

- 4 Bandlimited oscillators (mipmapped wavetable) with hard sync/fm capable and "mirror" oscillator in each one to create PWM effects.

(FM in voyager works this way: output of oscillator N modulates N+1. So oscillator 2 FM is driven by oscillator 1 output. Oscillator 1 FM is driven by Oscillator 4 but with 1 sample delay)

- 2 LFO's
- 2 Filters with 2 different waveshapers (sine/tan)
- Sample accurate MIDI event handling.
- Pitch envelope.
- 32-Band stereo vocoder. (Use plugin as insert effect or use a proper VST host)
- Stereo Chorus and Echo FX units.

and the evils, hope the community will help here:

- No time to make a proper GUI.
- No time to make a default preset bank.
- No time to add some missing features like ability to sync the lfo's, (there're reserved parameter fields anyway).

The original knobs are made by odo.

Draw a damned great GUI using these as skeleton and send them to argu@aodix.com :-)

Indeed the interface is too big and if you're running in 1024x768, forget it.

(and buy a real display)

About blurring the interface, in wich host?

Mine barely fits on 1 screen but moves just fine in FLStudio. I think this is very usable.

I am running 1024x768 on a 17" FTT. Host is Orion Platinum 6

Buy a real 'display' is a bit of a knoby thing to say, imagine if someone wants to use this on a laptop???


anyway, ive taken your advice, and forgotten about it...and deleted it. Didnt even bother playing one note. Sarcasm and poor support from a dev dont do it for me, free or not.

Man, take it easy.

I was joking (sorry if you feel attacked). I'm guilty of course of doing such a big crap-ass interface. But read the original post mate: NO TIME TO WORK / GIVE SUPPORT TO IT! =) (at least for a window of 2 or 3 months).

It was just release as it's now or nothing.

Fair enough. Maybe someone can make a smaller GUI sometime.
