Heavyocity has partnered with Icebreaker Audio to release Calc-U-Synth, a vintage lo-fi synth inspired by the Casio VL-Tone, for Reaktor and Reaktor Player.

"Calc-U-Synth was designed to present the full capabilities of the original's programmable features in a more convenient interface," says Icebreaker Audio Founder Adam Hanley. "We took great care in measuring and reproducing every aspect of the original accurately. Features like the built-in speaker and the key-click sounds of playing the instrument were sampled and included, to retain the character of the instrument."

Calc-U-Synth, like the original, can be run in one of two main modes: calculator or synthesizer. The synthesizer is a monophonic instrument that has 5 preset sounds as well as a user programmable 6th slot called ADSR. The sound was then expanded beyond the VL-Tone, featuring over 70 customized presets, and using a number of effects and performance options including an arpeggiator, circuit-bending glitch controls, and a filter & delay effect module. Calc-U-Synth was developed using the Reaktor Blocks framework, which means that owners of the full version of Reaktor can incorporate the 9 individual blocks into their own creations.

Powered by Native Instruments' Reaktor & Reaktor Player version 6.2, Calc-U-Synth offers all playback and sound shaping functionality through Reaktor & Reaktor Player version 6.2 (or later).

Intro Price: $19 (Reg. $29 USD). Offer ends September 28, 2017.
