Kastelheimer Veldberg XD is a virtual analog synthesizer based on algorithms from hardware VA synthesizers.
Veldberg XD offers cold heavy and ultra sharp sound with analog sounding liquid filters and hard oscillators.
Wide sound possibilities: from classic massive analog to experimental and innovative digital sounds. Thanks to 3 oscillators (every oscillator has more than 28 waveforms), 8 filters, 3 envelopes, 2 LFOs and Modulation matrix Veldberg XD offer wide range of various sound styles for almost every music production.
If you are looking for innovative sound, Veldberg has various new features and technologies as:
- OSC signal routing / mixing in various modes: (Standard, Synchronizer, Hernsht1, Hernsht 2, RingMod).
- HyperTWIST technology – for experimental/FX sounds.
- Klangcharakter (Schärfe/Macht) – If turned off, synthesizer sound similar to basic soft synthesizers (thin, basic / weak sound) if turned ON expect heavy, bass, massive hardware/analog sound on low frequencies and sharp / brilliant / strong sound on high frequencies.
Veldberg XD was made in cooperation between German engineers from Kastelheimer and developers from G-Sonique digital instruments, SR, European Union.

Just (2017-11) bought the full version. It comes as 32-bit VST with a serial number.
The gui is rather big and straightforward. The waveforms and filters are really very good, and the presets too. Basses, FX, Leads, Arps, the special Psy sound, all very clear and diverse. It has a modulation matrix with 6 entries, each with the same 5 sources and 6 or so destinations. Effects are 'only' a synchronizable delay and a flanger, but that is not a problem. CPU load is very low, 4% in Ableton on my Lenovo notebook.
However, it has several missing but important parameters:
NO key velocity, NO aftertouch, NO pitchbend, and NO modulation wheel sensitivity.
If these parameters were present, a rating of 8 or 9 would be in order. For now, I can only give 5/10.
A bit funny is that the gui is part english, part german, but the synth is easy to understand, so everybody will get the hang of it quickly. Quite astonishing that so much is possible with so few parameters, so the "four NO's" are even more annoying.
An update would be really great.Read more
