Avatar ST is most suited for a large variety of pads, soundscapes, atmospheres or related FX sounds but can do other sounds like e.g. certain kinds of basses too. The 16-Step Modulator allows sounds to be fairly rhythmical in various ways if required. Also you can have one section step-modulated while the the other is not as there are two complete sections with oscillators, modifiers, VCA EG, Delay, Pan and Reverb send, plus a grain processor and a multimode filter to be inserted via different audio routings. In addition there are a lot of modulation options you might select from in order to tailor your sound.

Twelve Tutorial patches have been created in order to help you explore this synth - see Appendix 4 of manual.

Main features (based on Pro version):

  • 2 x 2 PCM wave oscillators with 384 waves in 3 banks.
  • 2 x Osc Mix section with one XY-Pad plus mix option for direct and step modulated out.
  • 2 x Mystify with three selectable types (Bright, Soft, Dark).
  • 1 x Grain Processor.
  • 1 x Filter with 4 types (LP, HP, BP and Feedback) incl. 1 ADSR EG.
  • 2 x VCA EG (ADSR).
  • 2 x Delay, 2 x Pan.
  • 7 x LFO, 1 x S&H, 16 Step Modulator, Keytrack and Modwheel.
  • 1 semi-parametric 3-Band Stereo EQ, 1 small Reverb for adding some nice flavour.
  • 16 voices, 8 Lazy Buttons.

Major differences between Basic Free and Pro version:

  • Pro Version = 16 voices, 128 internal patches, 384 internal waves (3 banks).
  • Basic Free = 4 voices, 64 internal patches, 256 internal waves (banks #0 & #2), SF2 & wave loading only with Osc B2.

This plugin is very valuable for the price it comes at. The Avatar ST synthesizer plugin costs 12 EUR / 15 USD. You get a whole world of ambient for it. A must have with (4) 2x 2x wave oscillators, sample&hold and 7 LFO's and step modulation (syncable to host tempo), granular transformation and 2x sound transforming 'mystification', reverb, filter, delay, equalizer.

The Avatar ST synthesizer plugin transforms sound with customizable settings of synthesis routines over 4 wave oscillators of which 2 oscillators have user loadable waves. It features a rich set of internal waves, and this Avatar ST synthesizer allows adjusting a patch with randomize buttons for the waves and 7 other groups of settings of a patch. Sound is constructed with logical settings in a clear construction of the synthesizer display panel.

The Avatar ST has many options to ambiently modulate sound. It it is very suitable for creating ambient soundbeds and soundscapes and sounds with tension. The Avatar ST does allow creating sounds with a shorter decay/sustain/release on the amplification and filter envelopes, although longer sustaining sounds more suitable as ambient sounds and pads are the thing that this plugin excels in.

The Avatar ST synthesizer plugin is stable, and has an understandable, not too long manual. It does not consume a very huge amount of CPU, although the manual suggests lowering release times for less CPU usage. If you want to make ambient sounds, (for as addition to) pads, get instant relaxation and tension with very customizable settings: the Avatar ST synthesizer plugin will blow your mind.

The sound this Avatar ST synthesizer plugin creates is beautiful and astounding.

I got a version mismatch with AvatarST Pro Ver 1.2a. What version does this bank require?

I made them with Avatar ST Pro Version 1.2a single GUI version. I will try to save the bank again and repost.

Just posted it in the original thread where you announced these patches: for me they are the best I have EVER found for ANY of the great H.G. synths. If I would be able to understand these complex machines, exactly that kind of patches I would have liked to do. For me this great H.G. synth and youre two banks will be something to work with for years (at least unteil windows 10 does whatever with this...)

Kind regards and thank you so much, .

Richard.
