We've previously brought you news of beta versions, but now Audjoo have been in touch to announce the official release of Helix. Here's what they have to say...
Helix is a new software synthesizer and the first product from Audjoo. Over two years it has been developed with the demanding sound designer in mind, but is easy enough to use for any synth enthusiast to enjoy.
Helix introduces a new oscillator type combining the concept of wave-shaping with wave-table synthesis, in addition this oscillator also allows for up to 16 x unison similar to a super saw, but for any waveform. Great care has been taken to ensure no aliasing in the oscillators, so the sound is free from many artifacts traditionally associated with software (and virtual analog) synthesizers. Each of the 24 voices is made up of four oscillators, three filters and three distortion/saturation stages.
Helix runs in VST-host on OSX or Windows
