VAST Dynamics releases version 1.20 of Vaporizer Synth for Mac & Win

VAST Dynamics

VAST Dynamics has released version 1.20 of Vaporizer, an analogue / subtractive synthesizer plug-in. Vaporizer is designed to combine a fat virtual analog sound, low system CPU resource usage and a low price. A main focus was laid on modelling fat supersaw-like sounds with various unison and detune models.


  • Native 64-bit on Mac OS X.
  • VST3 support was added for Mac OS X and Windows.
  • VAST Dynamics added a second LFO that can be used for all modulation options.
  • A new sample and hold oscillator was added to oscillator banks and LFOs.
  • An envelope mode option was added to all four envelope generators, to choose between virtual analog / capacitive, digital and linear envelope models.
  • A new bank with 28 high-quality factory presets was added.
  • Several major sound enhancements were achieved: e.g. a new complex attenuation model to ensure a homogeneous output level when stacking and detuning multiple oscillators.
  • The modulation matrix was extended by three slots and has now eight slots that can modulate nearly all parameters of the synthesizer.
  • Thirteen new modulation matrix destinations for all effect settings were included: distortion chorus, delay and reverb, comb filter plus a destination for modulation of the stereo pan the output.
  • Vaporizer now has a patch randomization function.
  • Many usability improvement were added including buttons for fast browsing through presets, logarithmic slider scales, fine-tuning of slider-values with Ctrl / Cmd key and / or mouse scroll-wheel, tool-tips and many more.
  • Optimized CPU usage.

General features of the plug-in:

  • Innovative virtual analog synthesis model that allows an almost unlimited number of oscillators per voice (e.g. 96 saw-tooth oscillators).
  • Three modes - 16 and 4 voice polyphony plus monophonic mode.
  • Full stereo – all generators, effects and chains.
  • Full effect bank with high quality oversampling effects (distortion, chorus, delay, reverb, comb filter and parametric EQ).
  • Old school UI with real analog feeling.
  • Everything at sight – no hidden tabs or menus.
  • Retro-style oscilloscope for immediate visual feedback.
  • Monophonic and polyphonic portamento in all modes including ARP.
  • More than 80 presets with many different styles.
  • Dual LFO with cross modulation.
  • Completely alias free oscillators (7 different waveforms).
  • Up to 97 parallel oscillators per voice (4 unison / detune banks with max 24 plus 1 noise oscillator).
  • 16 voice polyphony with a maximum number of 1552 oscillators per plug-in at a time.

Price: €24.90 (+VAT within EU).
