Woodman’s Immaculate Maple Syrup Studio have updated WoodSynth to include some new features and presets.
The new features include:
- Added Notch Filter type.
- Added Slice Start modulation to LFO1 and LFO2 (see preset “Dancing on Slice”).
- Added Slice Start to Sequencer PAR2 (see preset “Slicequencer”).
- OSC3 phase modulation now done by the samples (was by OSC1)
- Added velocity to Slice Start.
- Added velocity to Filter Attack time (velocity 100% -> Attack Time = 0)
- Bpm DAW button now default on.
- Fix : touch bar now also working when midi channel set > 0 in layer.
- Fixed velocity and pressure in Filter Up/Down when Filter/Voice is switched off.
The new presets include:
- After The Tornado (bass, used live by The Radar Station)
- Dancing on Slice (bass, demo of LFO1 slice start modulation)
- I Moan (bass, used live by The Radar Station)
- POY (Pictures Of You, bass, used live by The Radar Station)
- Slicequencer (bass, demo of Sequencer PAR2 modulating slice start)
- Warm Brass (lead, uses keyboard velocity)
- 4 Seasons, 1 Note (pad, the 4 layer sounds are played by the same note)
- Cinematic Pad (pad, very slow attack, PM modulation)
WoodSynth is a synthesizer with 4 independent layers. Each layer is in fact a synthesizer on its own. Each layer has 3 VCO’s plus a samples based source, coming from a file or from recording the audio track.
Up to 16 voices can be set per layer. Layers can be used in parallel, assigned to a region of the keyboard or used in a sequential mode where the first note(s) on are played by layer 1 and the next note(s) by layer 2 and so on.
This last mode allows to have a different sound per note played (and independent from a keyboard region).
WoodSynth has a polyphonic pitch-bending touch bar which also displays notes received from a keyboard.
Each layer has its own filter and envelope with ADSR per voice, a pitch shifting envelope per VCO, a delay, a basic reverb, a modulator LFO per VCO, 2 general LFO’s and a 16 steps sequencer.
Key tracking can be applied on the ADSR attack and release, on the filter cutoff and on the VCO modulation.
The app can be used stand-alone (device audio input and output) or as a plugin in a DAW.
