The story on the Virsyn Cantor was one of our most popular video stories items from this year’s MESSE coverage. The appeal of Cantor being that it synthesizes in real time via MIDI with tweakable parameters for some pretty stunnning results.
The latest upgrade (V1.02) is now available for download from the Virsyn website for both Mac OS X and PC and features:
New phoneme sets New factory phoneme sets for better intelligibility New example projects and voice presets
New features Copy/Paste for complete Phoneme sets Copy/Paste for Phonemes Copy/Paste/Reset for automation envelopes New phoneme parameter "Damp" adjusts spectral slope. Context menu in Score editor for tool selection and copy/paste.
Bugfixes Sequencer timing improved Gender parameter didn't worked on the noise part. Crash at pending Note Offs on muted parts. Editings on phoneme sets got lost if set was changed before saving.
