Viper

Viper

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

 ● 4 Envelopes: Filter Env, Amp Env, Mod 3 and Mod 4
 ● 3 LFOs with Oscillator shape morphing
 ● Mod Matrix
 ● FX:

   ● Reverb
   ● Equalizer
 ● Arpeggiator with user patterns

Download demo version:
Demo restrictions: Preset saving is disabled. Noise every 60 seconds. (Because of the demo limitations, automation is not available in some hosts, but is fully functional in the retail version)
Requirements: Win 32/64 compatible system with SSE2 (or higher).

User Manual:
The user manual for Viper can be downloaded from here: Viper Manual.pdf

Purchase:


This is a 32 & 64-bit VST for Windows only! All future updates are free!
Please evaluate the demo thoroughly before purchasing!

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.

    @Lukas: if you have a look at the JP6K site Adam clearly stated:
    „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.“

    Hi, I bought the plugin some time ago, and I would like the 64 bit version as it is released now but can’t really find a way to get the download. So would love some help with this.

      Hi, I sent out the newsletter with the info on how to download it. Just use the same link as the original download that you got in the receipt with your serial.

    Hey.

    Why you dont have monthly payment system like Lennar Digital have? Its really nice way to pay. 🙂

    I think that every bigger music software developers should have this system because this software is really expensive. 🙂

      Because they probably send you some custom c++ code that you have to write in the synth and Viper is written in assembler, its not possible.

    Just tried the 64-bit demo for Windows. I run Ableton live 10 on WIN 10, and live just crashes if I try to load it into a project. When I try it in an empty project, it crashes live after a few minutes.

    I just want to say that I have owned two Virus TIs since 2006. In my experience, there is no other softsynth that comes close to Viper in nailing the Virus sound. Without devolving into subjective expressions like “better” or “fatter” it is fair to say that the Virus has a very unique sound that none of the other major softsynths quite capture. I have seen various explanations for the Virus’ sound from the DACs to “magic pixie dust.” While Viper doesn’t have the converters, it has the pixie dust in spades and I cannot thank the dev enough for making such an incredible emulation!!!

      Reveal cant even come close to Viper. the Virus unique sound is what you paid for and Viper have it for a fraction of cost.
