WIMSS Updates WoodSynth With CV Support

Woodman’s Immaculate Maple Syrup Studio have released an update (version 2.7) to WoodSynth which finds the ready awesome synth have CV support added. WoodSynth is available to iOS users for only $13.99 and MacOS users for only $44.99.

Here’s what’s new:

Added CV (Control Voltage) Out support for modular or hardware synths:

  • Up to 8 channels of the audio interface can output a CV.
  • The current note (or sequencer note) being played.
  • The current note with pitch (pitch wheel, pitch mod, glide, FM mod).
  • The current ADSR.
  • LFO 1 & 2 (LFO sources can be set to a wavetable yielding non-trivial waveforms !).
  • The BPM clock.

The minimum and maximum CV value notes can be set manually or measured to calibrate the note CV values.

AC coupled audio interfaces are supported by outputting a square wave in stead of a DC value.

About WoodSynth 

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 or wavetable 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.

Features include:

  • AUv3 (iOS) (MacOS) AU, AAX, VST2, VST3 and stand-alone app.
  • Has 4 independent synthesizers, each with up to 16 voices.
  • Supports MPE.
  • Has a polyphonic touch bar with polyphonic pitch bending.
  • Velocity, channel pressure, (polyphonic) aftertouch, CC74 can be used to modulate several synth parameters.
  • VCO’s have the usual waveforms (sine, saw, square, triangle, pulse and noise) and can be modulated in various ways (FM, AM, Pulse Width, Slew rate)
  • Samples can be recorded from the audio input/track or loaded from file (sample files should be in the WoodSynth iCloud folder)
  • Wavetables can be loaded from file or converted from loaded or recorded samples.
  • Each voice has a 4-pole Moog Lowpass filter with resonance and ADSR envelope.
  • An offset can be set in the Filter cutoff for the R channel to create a stereo effect.
  • Each voice has a pitch shifting ADSR envelope which can be independently enabled for each VCO.
  • Has Key tracking for VCO pan, Filter cutoff, ADSR Envelope Attack and Release.
  • Each layer has a delay unit (which can be separately panned) and a basic reverb.
  • Each layer has a 16 steps sequencer which can run on multiple voices (poly mode).
  • Each layer can set the midi channel and range of receiving midi notes (which allows for up to 4 split keyboard regions).
  • Layers can be set in sequential mode : first note(s) played on layer1, next note(s) on layer2, etc.
  • Layers have an additional high-pass filter saturation and crush control.
  • Synth audio and delay can be panned independently.
  • The 2 general LFO’s can have their source from the samples or wavetables (or track input).
  • Supports Ableton Link to sync tempo and start-stop.
  • Has 4 User Control rotaries which can be freely assigned.
  • The User Controls can be controlled by a midi CC which can be set or learned.
  • Presets can be stored in iCloud Drive (makes them available on all your devices).
