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.

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: Win32 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-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’m waiting for the 64 version impatiently

    Me too!! I’m running Cubase Pro 9.5 64 bit, so if the 64 bit version comes out I’ll absolutely buy it!

    Defintively loving how it sounds! Can’t wait for the 64-bit version to come out!

    When a Mac version?

    I really do look forward to the 64 bit version as well. On a particular preset I created I get crackles. I have a fairly fast computer, overclocked a bit too.

    One thing that would be great, and would alleviate this importance (for me) of a 64 bit version temporarily, would be to allow more flexibility in setting the polyphony. Currently it jumps to 8 and 16 from off. Other plugins tend to allow incremental increase/decrease, by one voice at a time.

    I’m not sure specifically why there is crackling – but per Reaper’s performance indicator the CPU usage is below 15% but this seems to max out Viper as a 32 bit wrapper plugin – but then again, that’s typical for Reaper – I haven’t read the articles on the Reaper Performance indicator in awhile. Of course, I confirmed that the issue was polyphony, since when I decreased poly to 8 that resolved it.
