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

      It works perfect with jbridge.
      Why wait?
      I am very happy with it. 🙂

    Yes love the clean interface. Will have to wait for the 64bit version though, Imagine it will sound even better!

      it will not, no sound difference b/t 32 and 64, only RAM utilization
      You would think Ableton could just build that in, can’t wait to try it once I finally can

    Looks nice. Only x86 is a big, big issue. Jbridge sucks!

      Totally agree, serious issue. Nowadays a developer should start with 64bit Version. 64bit should come out first, I don’t know any music producer who works on 32bit anymore… Since a few years actually…

    Waiting for 64 bit native before buying.

      As I said, on my System it runs perfect with jbridge,
      No reason to wait on 64 bit. ??

    Many people complain about 64-bit version… Well, let’s face the truth and stop these more or less senseless #!”£! Almost every major DAW is available in both 32/64. Some of them with native build bridge to support both 32/64 plug-ins (ie. Bitwig). Ask yourselves: Why? No-one uses 32-bits anymore? Don’t be pathetic, please… As far as I understand Mac users expectations PC musicians always have a problem. Nothing new, isn’t it? I’ve been running Viper Demo in few DAWs: Studio One, Bitwig, Sonar Home Studio and have to say its smooth, fast and with absolutely no problems. I don’t know what Access will do next.., but won’t be surprised if they develop Virus in VST mode 😉 Regards.

      I agree to you!
      It makes no sense to discuss about 64 bit
      when it works perfect with jbridge.
