Free Max For Live Modular Synth

Point Blank's latest freebie is based on the EMS VCS3      11/09/13

Point Blank, the online music school, has announced the latest addition to their range of free Max for Live plug-ins - Modular Synth - based on the EMS VCS3

Tutor Daniel Herbert has designed and built this plug-in from scratch, exclusively for the Point Blank community. Here's what he had to say about his new plug-in:

"The Point Blank modular synth is based on the legendary EMS VCS3. The VCS3 was built in London in the late '60s and there were a number of subsequent models of varying sizes. It was a popular synth and used by the Radiophonic Workshop (the ring modulator was used to process the sound of the daleks) through to Pink Floyd. It's a great synth to generate sounds and jam around with and the interface was really well thought out, featuring an innovative matrix which is still a neat way to patch the different synth sections together. It features three oscillators, a noise generator, a ring modulator, a couple of filter sections, audio input, envelope generator, spring reverb and an assignable joystick control – if you really wanted you could even hook up a keyboard! The Point Blank modular synth is a simpler interface, but still offers three oscillators and noise generator, a filter section, ring modulator and X/Y controller. Unlike the VCS3, it's possible to store your settings, and trigger the sounds easily (and in tune!) from a MIDI source. We've also included a slide control to emulate the smooth sweeps you could sometimes achieve with the original synth."
