"PROBABLY THE MOST VERSATILE WAVETABLE SYNTHESIZER"

Vaporizer 2 is our flagship hybrid wavetable additive / subtractive VST / AU / AAX synthesizer / sampler workstation.

The heart of this plugin is the alias-free versatile high-performance wavetable sound engine with low system CPU resource usage.

Vaporizer 2 comes with a groundbreaking wavetable editor with a vast number of editing possibilities including frequency shift, smooth, clean, bend and bloat for single-cycles, parts of single-cycles or even whole wavetables.

Featuring an easy-to use wavetable draw mode with smooth Bezier curves and snap to grid function.

Includes 780+ wavetables and single cycles and 410+ factory presets.

Vaporizer 2 features a comprehensive preset management system with tags, free text search, file system folder management and ratings.

MANY MORE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • State-of the art wavetable engine with four independent alias-free wavetable oscillator banks with up to 24 oscillator unison.
  • Low system CPU resource usage - even with more than 1.000 oscillators playing.
  • Groundbreaking wavetable editor with a vast number of editing possibilities including frequency shift, smooth, clean, bend and bloat for single-cycles, parts of single-cycles or even whole wavetables.

  • Built-in arpeggiator that is freely editable and supports polyphonic modes, hold and MIDI file drag and drop.
  • Three step sequencers that can be synced to the DAW.
  • All parameter knobs / sliders automatable and support manual editing for exact parameter values.
  • Support for MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE): receive MPE MIDI dimensions (X/Y/Z) pitchbend, aftertouch (freely assignable), release velocity / lift (controlled via MSEG) and brightness / timbre (freely assignable) form supported controllers for highly expressive control options.
  • State of the art preset management system with tags, free text search, file system folder management and ratings.
  • General setting of wavetable frequency characteristics: sharp (ideal filtering), soft (butterworth filtering), dull (linear).
  • Comes with a daily growing number of presets – free regular updates on the website.
  • Includes 780+ wavetables and single cycles and 410+ factory presets.
  • Easy to use and intuitive user interface that is freely scalable and resizable even up to 4k and more with many drag and drop features and many graphical components, e.g. audio-out oscilloscope, filter response, MSEG / LFO / ARP.
  • Polyphonic real-time visualization of parameter modulations.
  • Four different UI themes to choose from.
  • Hotkeys for most important editor functions.
  • Life-long free update policy.
  • Plus: the sound is stunning.

Available formats: VST2 / VST3 / AU / AAX plugins and a standalone version for both Mac OS X and Windows.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:

  • Any CPU that supports AVX or SSE2 (Intel or AMD).

i own the vaporizer2 since january 2020, since then i have seen many great updates, that makes vaporizer2, that when i bought it was already powerfull, a really great wavetable syntesizer.
and now in the latest update it MPE is implemented.

first: when you buy it; lifetime updates.

4 wavetable oscillators, all parameters can be modulated, 30 realtime wavetable effects, with FM-from-Next, a oscillator can be frequency modulated, by the next oscillator. up to 24 unison per oscillator.
3D view, and 2D.
next:
the sampler, which has 2 or even 3 function, you can play a sample along, and you can play the sample granular, you can set the grain size and spread.
the samples that are loaded can be turned into wavetable(s), in different ways. you can select, resample, or make a "patch" that takes the full sample, and turn into a mono wavetable, or 2 wavetables, for stereo.. when you apply this action, for example make a stereo wavetable, the wave table position parameter is automatically set to all positions.

and there is a noise oscillator, for drums, or more experimental sounddesign.

an extensive modulation section, 5 MSEG's (with loop functionality, can be synced, are can be per voice, etc. etc.),
5 LFO's, a step sequencer, and an ARP.

the routing is straightforward, but powerfull, you have 3 filters (30+ types), 3 effect busses. you can route every oscillator to a filter or a FX bus, or straight ot the master. every filter can be routed through another filter or directly to a FX bus or to the master, as the 11+ effects, in the FX bus, every bus can be routed through a another FX bus, or straight to the master. this means extensive routing possibilties.

the sound is excellent. CPU usage is good, but as always, there are limits, but every complex synth suffer from the same limitations.
but CPU usage is for what it does great.

a lot of visual feedback, that is helpfull for modulation.

of course a modulation matrix, with curves, value, polarity etc. 16 slots.

the MPE implementation is great, and makes this synth, that is already powerfull, a great MPE synth.
pressure (called aftertouch), slide, all per voice of course. and lift (release velocity), implemented in the MSEG's, in way a very logical way.
and of course glide; you can set the MPE pitchbend per preset, also you can set MPE per preset (or globally).

and a full wavetable editor!, which works also via additive editing or freeform drawing. many possibilties. simply a great editor, you can make detailed changes, per slot, or more slots, or create from one single sycle wave, a full wavetable, with some great options.
so an additive oscillator, as a wavetable... or draw your own waveforms or: make a wavetable from certain position.
you can make selections, add/delete positions, slots.

so in one word, no not one word: a very versatile, excellent sounding wavetable synth, with 4 wavetable oscillators ánd a sampler (and granular sampler) and noise oscillator.

GUI is resizable by hand, or by setting. there are now 4 skins, enough to choose the right one for you.

and a great preset management! finding a preset is very easy, it uses also tags, and developers names.

undo/redo. etc. etc.

and so much more, but you can read the description on the website, what it offers.

the sound, possibilties makes vaporizer2 a very serious alternative to other wavetable synths.

yes the sound! great, the filters and FX's sound great, FX's have gain staging, can move freely, so you can change the order of the FX's chain.

simply, i repeat; a great wavetable/addtive/sampler synth.

try it!

I recently discovered VST vaporizer 2 and was immediately enthusiastic. There are not many wavetablesynth with 4 wavetable oscillators. Then I saw the extremely low price and immediately bought.
The surface offers a wealth of sound editing options. The outstanding alias-free sound requires surprisingly little CPU power. There are over 40 different filter types, 5 envelopes, 5 LFOs. An extensive modulation matrix and 3 effect busses with 13 different effects. In addition, the vaporizer 2 has 3 step sequencers and an arpeggiator on board.
In the middle of the GUI are the individual departments to be selected.
There is even a sampler that can also be used as wavetable editor. Here samples can be converted into wavetables.
The GUI can be adjusted in 10 steps from 25% to 200%.
