Opulent Audio have released bLO-FIsh which they describe as a versatile 3 Oscillator LO-FI synthesizer. They tell us that it is not an emulation of any particular "chip", but is much more powerful than that.
A spokesperson described it thusâ€¦ â€œbLO-FIsh incorporates classic chip type (8 bit) sounds with more traditional synth elements to bring on a huge sonic range. Flexible, extensive modulation plus a 16-step gate for more musical and rhythmic options. Plus, bLO-FIsh has a distortion effect and a CPU-friendly reverb to garnish your 8 bit feast.â€�
Hereâ€™s more details from the websiteâ€¦ Generators:
3 Wave Oscillators with Sine, Saw, Ramp, Triangle, Square and two different widths of Pulse waves.
Audio quality is switchable between standard, 16 bit/44 khz operation and 8 bit/22 khz LO-FI mode.
Graphic amplitude ADSRs.
Output routing options to either filter, both filters, or no filter (straight to effects section).
Hard sync feedback loop - each oscillator hard syncs to the next and #3 syncs to #1.
2 Fast-response SV Filters with Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass and Band Reject modes.
Graphic ADSRs routable to cutoff, resonance, or both. Control over amount of envelope applied.
Pan and volume controls.
Filters operate on a parallel basis (they are independent of each other).
'CheapoDisto' - no frills distortion device.
Efficient reverb unit. Normal, gated and freeze modes.
2 Tempo-synced LFOs with wave modification options (shaping, folding).
1 Free LFO, 2 - Graphic ADSRs (modulation also possible from velocity, aftertouch and mod wheel).
16 step "Trance" style gate, synced to tempo. Mixes independently with all 3 Oscillators.
6 slot Modulation Matrix with 8 selectable sources and 63 selectable targets, user defined.
Designed to be fast and easy to use.
