VAMonoMkII

Bitimbral Synthesizer

VAMonoMkII is a virtual analog bitimbral synthesizer for iPhone, iPad and Mac. It features two 8 voice synthesizer, effects, sequencer and audio visualization tools. It operates as a stand alone or as an AudioUnit Extension (AUv3).  Stand Alone supports Ableton Link, MIDI and audio file export.

Synthesizer

The bitimbral synthesizer consists of two synthesizer, which features two oscillators, two ADSR envelopes, resonant high pass and low pass filter and an amplifier per voice. The oscillators features continuously variable wave shape and wide variety of modulation. The filters are modeled on Transistor Ladder filter circuit and the Sallen-Key filter circuit for classic analog sound. 

Effects

The Effects include delay, chorus, flanger, reverb, eq and compressor.

Sequencer

The sequencer features piano roll and parameter automation editor to program 16 bar pattern per clip.
