    Viper aims to deliver the sound characteristics of legendary hardware synthesizers in a virtual format. We can call Viper a Virtual Performance synth, with a vast array of features like: multiple oscillator types with user waveforms, Sync, Frequency Modulation, Ring Modulation, unison up to 8 voices, filter saturation, filter routings, mod matrix, high quality effects, a powerful arpeggiator, and much more!

    A lot of time and research has been invested to make the sound engine of Viper capable of delivering a wide array of sounds, everything from smooth, lush pads, huge basses, and powerful leads, typically associated with traditional analog synthesizers. This was achieved with careful coding, experimenting, analysing hardware synths, and using the ear to fine tune the controls. A constant randomization is also active in the synth to slightly alter its sound to mimic electronic components.

    The engine is written in optimised code to use as little CPU consumption as possible, while maintaining a high quality sound engine, finding a good balance between the two. The synth automatically turns off any parts that are not used to further reduce CPU usage. Viper also has a smoothing algorithm for its controls to remove the ‘steppyness’ when it goes between values to give that extra polished sound.

    Key features:
    -Classic Oscillators with user waveforms
    -Multisaw (up to 9x Sawtooth waveform)
    -Sub Oscillator
    -Noise with coloring
    -Punch
    -Osc Sync, FM, RM
    -Unison up to 8 voices
    -2 Zero Delay Feedback filters with Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass, Band Reject (notch)
    -Filter Saturation curves
    -4 Filter routings: Serial 4, Serial 6, Parallel, Split
    -4 Envelopes: Filter Env, Amp Env, Mod 3 and Mod 4
    -3 LFOs with Oscillator shape morphing
    -Mod Matrix

    FX:
    -Character (analog boost)
    -Distortion
    -Filter effects: Ring Modulator, Frequency Shifter, Vowel Filter, Comb Filter
    -Phaser
    -Chorus
    -Delay
    -Reverb
    -Equalizer

    -Arpeggiator with user patterns
    -Built in Preset browser

    Download demo version:[​IMG]
    Demo restrictions: Preset saving is disabled. Noise every 30 seconds.
    Requirements: Win32 compatible system with SSE2 (or higher).
    This is a 32-bit VST for Windows only! All future updates are free!
    Please evaluate the demo thoroughly before purchasing!

    64-bit version?
    The 64-bit version of the VST for Windows is in planning stage, and will arrive in the near future, as a free update to all customers.

    Why no Mac version?
    Unfortunately, FlowStone does not yet support export to AU, Mac VST yet. As soon as FlowStone supports this, the synth will be available in this format.

    I was involved in the development (I programmed the arp), and I can assure you it is worth every cent. It is probably the most important synth in 2018. Viper challenges AAA synths easily. Plus, it is very close to Access Virus TI, and who wouldn't like a software replika of a €1000 hardware synth?

    I think you're exaggerating a bit, we just started 2018 and you're already saying that it's probably the most important synthesizer this year.

    The 64-bit version of this plugin is not yet available and in some patches you will hear clicks. :snuffy:

    I follow the guy's FB page, and so far his soundset were good.
    I also trust he wants to "replicate the Virus" :D and it's sad that we can't get it on mac.

    but also indeed, 89$ is a bit expensive for a windows only 32 bits synth.
    but interested to see how it will go.

    I'm sorry but imo the demo isn't very impressive. It sounds thin, highpassed, not interesting, at all.
    I'll pass.

    Constant randomization? Yay I sure love having inconsistency while working on a song, let's just hope I get a good one when rendering down. Do I also have to warm it up before usage?

    first run ... what else saws :bleh: (no reverb)


    The Drop MS2 filter eats its filters for breakfast, but nothing wrong with it ... as a general purpose VSTi, I've begun to create some "song" with it instantly it's a good sign means it's an inspirative one (for me ... )

    ps. if somebody never programmed Virus before>> https://www.dancemusicproduction.com/products/sessions-virus-ti "...In Sessions 05: The Virus Ti, we spend close to 5 hours of video walking through and dissecting the interface tab..." quite good

    Most important synth in 2018 and NO 64bit version?! :rofl:

    Yeah, no 64bit is a shocker in 2018. No sale.
    And no kudos for developers who can't code outside synth edit or synthmaker (flowstone).

    Kvr can suck Adam's 32 bit only plums.
