QuikQuak have released Glass Viper which they describe as 'a synthesizer with unique waveform shaping that has a deep and natural sense of movement, going beyond analogue simulation into a truly organic sound - from simple old synths to grungy filthy basses, or delicate pianos to strange unnatural film effects.'
Instead of taking a sample or oscillator and applying just filters and FX techniques, Glass Viper bends the actual shape of its waveforms through a series of moving control points. Up to four of these swirling and changing sounds can be layered together to create a huge range of instruments. QuikQuak say that Glass Viper allows you to really shake things up with a deep, natural sense of movement.
QuikQuak had this to say, “From the start, Glass Viper's goal was to make sound creation visual, and distance itself from mathematics. Making something with a unique sound was also a priority, and in a world full of synthesizers, this had to mean a fundamental difference. Without the complexity of many changeable modules, Glass Viper encourages play and experimentation. Most of the presets available were born from experimentation, rather than setting out to make a particular sound.�
