My only go to synth.

And I've tried many, because I'm very demanding to find all I need in 1 synth for live use. But only Avenger can please me up to now. I use it as my solo live synth running in my DAW on stage. It's demanding but I've found a way to get it running pretty smooth. Besides it's the only synth that has a next/prev preset assignment (thank you devs !;-) Very handy when you want to load the next preset in your DAW, because like most synths, you can't pc a preset/bank anymore.

It sounds like a monster, can distort multiple ways, has huge filters and effects, lot's of synthesis, .. in 1 word I love it.

Why I choose Avenger?

  • It has 8 OSC (eight!) and you can even add multi samples under 1 osc+sub and voicing in the osc.
  • Has many synthesis on board, also a nice basic sampler per osc.
  • It has arp on board, step seq, mod env, ...
  • A drum seq and full drumkits.
  • Full modulation possibility, everything you see can be assigned to everything .
  • Great effects in chains or as send, ...
  • Comes with a huge library of professional presets and the devs are working all the time on new expansions. Mainly it's dance oriented, but you can go several ways with this synth, even importing (basic) multi samples...

Sound Quality: Just perfect, what more could you wish? A ton of fx, waveforms, drum samples, drum patterns, arps, ... to choose from plus many filters.

UI: Consider it the Nord of usability. All knobs in your reach, use rightclick or shift for more functions, ... and very nice skinable. I already made several skins for it. It's not easy to put all the functions into one interface, but somehow they managed it. Some things could be better and I'm still demanding those tweaks to the devs, ... Hoping one day they will make this great synth even better.

Synthesis and functions: Almost unliimited, you can assign everything to everything. And the developers are working on even more functions and synthesis every month (it's version 1.3.6 already since 7/2016.

CPU: It's quite demanding but works perfectly for many instances on a modern music PC via Wasapi (I hear Mac is the same). Although there is an optimisation problem with ASIO (I get pretty fast some cracks on my MOTU mk4 at 128 smpls).

Price: A fair price for such a great product. The expansions are rather expensive, but worth the money and very well programmed into the detail.

Support: The dev Rene is always ready to answer your questions or fix any problems. And sound dev Manuel is every day online here at KVR forum for your prayers...

Conclusion: The intrest is growing very fast in this synth as it's still kinda new under the soft flagships. It's not perfect. It has flaws, but I believe in the product and the dev team is very helpful and responsive. They even help me solve issues I have with live situations for the synth. Which is quite unique (sorry for the nagging Rene and Manuel;-)).

I see this synth rising the coming years, next to other big boys as Serum, Falcon, Omnisphere, ...

Keep on improving the product .

If you're wondering: Shouldn't I buy Serum instead of VPS Avenger, "cause Serum's a standard and everyone's using it, including deadmau5"?

Well, then maybe you should. But if you're looking for a synth that beats Serum in practically every aspect, and even isn't (much) more expensive: Buy Avenger! Don't get fooled by the sound demos and packs that all sound like pure "EDM / Mainstream Trance" directly from the Netherlands. Avenger can do this, granted, but it can also do pretty much anything else. I'm into Dub Techno / Minimal and Avenger is a pure joy to work with. Coming from UVI Falcon, which is very different to Avenger, not better or worse, the great thing about Avenger is you kinda get the versatility of Falcon, but in a much quicker and more userfriendly workflow. I wouldn't wanna miss this pure awesomeness of a synth ever again (nor would I wanna miss Falcon). It has some rough edges, but it's few.

Sound Quality: Purely excellent
UI: Good
Versatility: You can phase-modulate (FM) a Wavetable with a Sample or whatever combination you want. Then add Analog Style Filters or FX. You can draw synth shapes. There're so many things. 100%, seriously.
CPU: No problems on a decent CPU, Ryzen 7 or Core-i5. Even running on my Tablet-PC although mileage will vary depending on the patch. Still performance is great in my eyes, a lot better than U-he synths for example.

Made myself a lot of enemies with this review I guess, but I hope I also made a few new friends! :)

I review Avenger based on its demo. It's quite easy to install it, though has more than 4Gig factory content, but it's OK for me. One word from the the developer : Vengeance Sound means quality, and browsing the forums I have never read any bad about their stuff.

The factory sounds are good, but for me, something is missing (maybe I should demo it more). Similar hybrid monster synths like Zebra or Blue II contain more presets I like. I think my problem with the sound is that VSP Avenger mainly offers sounds for the todays' producer, and don't contain "oldschool" sounds in its factory set, Sure it can sound many different ways.

Anyway, the GUI is interesting with lots of visual feedback and animation, so a great fun factor, but on the other hand is quite a mess. There are some parts that are small despite of their role, for example the modulation matrix should be bigger% from the whole gui. I think Avenger gui problem is that they want to put many things in one screen, where some parts should deserve a second screen alone.

I Quite like the Arpeggiator, and the Zone screen where you can layer sounds. I only tried some of the effects, and filters. That was really interesting to see a "tape stop" kind of fx in the effects rack.

So currently I have mixed feelings with Avenger. The main reason of this is I mainly like synths that are made for one specific goal, and Avenger is not this kind. It is made for covering many synthesis types, and the question is if it can sound wicked enough...

They said "the last synth you will ever need".

And they have a point. If there is one word for the philosophy of this soft synth, it's MORE. It pretty much has everything you may want to see in one synth, overdelivering on many things - who actually needs 8 oscillators in one sound, and what do I want with hundreds of waveforms and 4 Gig of sample/wave content? Well, the answer is: I don't know yet, but I plan to find out.

There seems to be very little this synth can not do... audio rate modulation between oscillators or on filters is missing, and wavetable editing is not (yet?) part of the game, but other than that, a great many synthesis methods and FX are there already. There is a Zebra 2 like flexibility in routing sounds and building layers. The ergonomics are great, I had fun navigating the GUI.

How does it sound: Pretty much like anything you want. It can be digital, it can do analog, it even can do some physical modelling. Warm and fuzzy in some presets, icy cold in others. The filters are good, a wide variety is there. One of the highlights of this beast are the effects - the quality is very high, no need to use external effects. If you really must, you can program sounds that start a whole track with one key press, including a drum sequence.

VPS Avenger runs smoothly on my system, but that system is pretty high end. You are advised to test it on your computer, as some sounds can be demanding.

Highly recommended.

VPS AVENGER

PROS::

  • Friendly GUI (but i still want the old Vengeance color style from FX!!!).
  • A lot of the excellent Essential FX Bundle fx include in the synth (especially the V-Verb!!).
  • VST version Pretty stable under OS X 10.12.3.
  • Drum machines included.
  • The sound : Very nervous / agressive sound (in your face sound !).

CONS::

  • CPU Spike sometime.
  • The price of expansions.
  • I don't like the colour of GUI...
  • ......nothing else.

GOOD TO KNOW:

Vengeance dev is here @KVR .

The autorisation is made with a keyfile.

The plugin is updated frequently, and the dev are open to news features.

The FX from vengeance are excellents.


I own this plugin since 2 or 3 months (don't remember), i was first disappointed because it sound like nothing I own in the past and now.
This is the first time i consider to buy expansions.
It deserve a 10 but for the CPU spike i give it a 9... but it deserve a 10.

Hello I have a question I have been asking to vengeance directly,
"hello, I am trying to figure out if in a arp avenger sequence ABCD, if it's possible to extend it to EFGH.. or to continue to link the ARP 1 with an ARP 2, and ARP 3... to have a longer progression of an arps not limited to only 4 block ABCD? Thank you"

I have been answered :
"No this is not possible. The ARP should not and can not replace your DAW for sequencing a complete song. However you can use the StepSQ as a modulator for the patterns. So you can play AAAB, ABDDABBC or whatever pattern you like"

then I said :
" I have been trying your suggestion, or there is something I didn't understand or this is not possible. I know you don't have as vocation to train the people but if you could me more specfic to understand how to make it working, I would be thankful"

I have answered :
"just drag and drop the Step Seq "6point" handle on the StepSQ tabs onto the ARP: ABCD index to establish a mod matrix assignment"

But despite all those recommandations it's still chinese for me. Can someone has an idea how to make it working, I don't want be asking Vengeance all the times to be more specific. It's probably very easy for them are they are using it daily but not for me for sure .

Thanks for your help.

In the Step Seq section, you'll see the STP SQ1 organge button. This six point mean it is draggable to any other paramter, so it will modulate that. Just drag and drop from this orange to a knob, a line will appear. Then you can set the amount on the knob the line has been drawn to.

If it is still not clear just read the Modulation monster section of this article: https://synthmorph.com/blogs/news/vps-avenger-review-has-a-new-king-been-born.

Hi tripleflows, .

thanks for you help, .

I have a little understanding of how works those draggable parameters, and I figured out what where those 6 dots points today and tried during hours to do what I have been explained by vengeance guys. But I am stucked nowhere...

If you figure out to what I have been explained and how to do it step by step, I pay you a pinte. Cheers.

I was a bit underwhelmed to discover in one of the review videos that, out of its 32 FX, it seems to only have... 1 Delay, period!!!
given the ridiculously enormous amount it packs of just about everything else (except maybe LFOs, which are "just" 4+1), it feels pretty weird and uncongruous to me that there's only one delay in this, delay being the single most important FX (apart from reverb) of them all -- for me anyways.

So I don't know... Maybe the one delay is so versatile that it covers mono/stereo/tape/multitap/what-have-you types, but somehow I kinda doubt it, seeing as how other FX are provided in several flavours.

So, just my usual critisizing 2 cents. Obviously this is a monster of a synth, I am just a bit puzzled by this "delay minimalism" which doesn't seem to make much sense, especially considering how everything else has been treated and implemented.

I have been using Avenger for a while. It's brilliant and I love it, and because of that love I already have generated a few wishes and noticed a couple of issues that can be a bit disturbing during a workflow, so since I don't know where else to post about these, I post them here :)

1) When making a large pitch glide in the Pitch curve which 1/10 speed and 24 range, ranging from +100 to -100, I noticed the sound pitch kind of stalling while passing through 0. The glide wasn't entirely uniform. This actually sounds like a bug. I can offer more information if requested.

2) Mod Matrix should include an option to expand to the whole height of the right column, like Preset/Sound selection areas do. If you start using macros and automation to the mod matrix slots themselves, it can soon become a hell to see how they are affected.

3) A way to bypass all effects globally and persistently would be great. What I mean is having a "bypass" button that turns off all effects from any chain, send and master, which persists when changing Presets. This would greatly help when you're looking for a sound while using your own FX in the DAW or if you want to look for a good dry timbre and mess with it later.

4) When switching from simple oscillators to wavetables, it'd be great if we could lock the piano view and not switch to the wave view. It can help in sound tryout (sometimes in some occasions and spaces it's not possible to use a MIDI keyboard, so losing the piano view from the view makes trying out sounds when changing presets or oscillators irritating).

5) It'd be fun if we could stack more than one Pitch envelopes on a single oscillator :)

Has vps avenger made a guitar expansion?. www.eastboundsounds.com has an acoustic guitar pack that i bought.for a great price compared to vegeance-sounds pricing. EBS presets have better foundations, but vengeance sounds has more variety.
