Heliox is a rather simple experimental synthesizer, with a "no-frills" GUI, capable of "weird" textures and noises, as well as "normal" synth sounds, like pads, leads and basses.

Main features are:

  • monophonic, with 30 oscillators bank.
  • adjustable oscillators' frequencies, ranging from single frequency to harmonic and non-harmonic series.
  • oscillators can be purely sinusoidal, or "shaped" by an adjustable parameter.
  • adjustable attenuation factor between successive oscillators.
  • 30 LFOs, each modulating amplitude of corresponding oscillator.
  • adjustable LFOs' frequencies, similarly to oscillators.
  • LFOs can be purely sinusoidal ("bell-like") or "shaped" by 2 adjustable parameters: center and sharpness.
  • phase shift between successive LFOs is adjustable.
  • LFOs can be periodic or randomly intermittent, with adjustable "density".
  • ADSR envelope.

i see there's a new version of heliox.. this "review" (acknowledgement and endorsement) concerns the initial release.

makes my top handful of synths list.. not general purpose but utterly unique and extremely applicable for select timbres. the shifting harmonics make heliox an excellent source for signal chains producing complex ambiences, even emulative environments can be created if one is selective in processing.

the original release was pragmatic and appropriate for my applications. people who prefer self contained instruments with on-board effects may balk at the utilitarian form.

Um, sorry but the download like is some BS spam, not even in English. Fix it or take it down... Click on the Helios as a product, not the download link for windows. Very disappointed in KVR.
