MackTuesday releases Orz Modular Synth v0.0 alpha


MackTuesday has released an alpha version of Orz, a fully modular synthesizer VST instrument for Windows that uses "TRAMS" (Tuned Recursive Amplitude Modulation Synthesis) oscillator technology. This allows Orz's oscillators to produce band-limited digital waveforms with rich, complex spectra. Nine sliders that control timbre might remind you of a graphic equalizer; their function bears rough similarity to that of an equalizer, but they don't control specific regions of the spectrum, rather, they affect disparate groups of partials in a way that defies simple explanation. Brightness and Contrast meta-controls affect the regular controls altogether. Brightness sets their average level; contrast adjusts the width of their spread (the standard deviation). Orz is also capable of a sort of E-MU-style morphing filter behavior.


  • 4 envelopes.
  • 4 oscillators.
  • 4 fractional delay units.
  • 4 filters.
  • 4 LFOs.
  • 4 noise generators.
  • 2 ring modulators.
  • 2 step functions (AKA bitcrushers or amplitude quantizers).
  • 2 sample-and-hold units.
  • 6 freely routable user controls.
  • Partial patch saving and loading.
