What is VK-1 Viking Synthesizer?

Do you guys remember how good and pleasant Monophonic Analog Synthesizers used to sound back in the days?

Well, I don't know about you but I have been a big fan of using Monophonic synthesizers in my music projects. Inspired by the crystal clear sounds produced from these Instruments, Blamsoft decided to emulate the famous Monophonic Synthesizer. They named it - VK-1 Viking Synthesizer. It features three-wave oscillators that vibrate randomly, two filters, and a multi-wave Low-Frequency Oscillator. But you might be thinking that emulating some instrument doesn't guarantee that VSTi will sound exactly like its hardware clone. Yeah, you are right about this. But BlamSoft developers tried their best by using DSP technology.

VK-1 Viking Features: What's in the Bag for Us?

In this section, we will discuss the Components and features of these amazing virtual instruments.

Oscillators - Will blow your Mind

VK-1 has three continuously variable wave oscillators with a few extra settings to tweak how they operate.

  • Octave: The Octave knob of VK-1 Viking Synthesizer sets the octave of the oscillator. Note that the octave labeled 4’ directly matches the keyboard pitch.
  • Frequency: The Frequency knob adjusts the pitch of the oscillator. The knob adjusts the pitch in the range of -7 to +7 semitones away from the true pitch. When Fine mode is enabled, the knob adjusts the pitch in the range of -0.7 to +0.7 semitones. The fine adjustments are useful for subtly fattening the sound of a patch. Semi mode locks the frequency to semitones.
  • Wave: The Wave knob adjusts the waveform of the oscillator. The waveform changes from triangle to saw to square to pulse as the knob is swept from left to right. A triangle is useful as a mellow sound, a saw as a bright and buzzy sound, a square as a hollow digital sound, and a pulse as a thin grainy sound. Since the knob is continuously variable, the in-between settings offer many possibilities.

Mixer: Free Monophonic Synthesizer

The Mixer page is used to adjust the volume of the oscillators and noise. The mixer sources are summed and fed to the filters. The switches enable the audio of each oscillator and the knobs adjust their level. The switch turns on the audio from the noise source and the knob adjusts its level.

Filters: Best VSTi Filter

VK-1 has dual filters modeled after the classic transistor ladder filter. In Dual Lowpass mode, the filters are in parallel in the left and right output channels. In HP/LP mode the filters are in series, one high-pass and one low-pass. The number of poles in VK-1 Viking Synthesizer Free Download is adjustable from 1 to 4. More poles create a steeper slope and a sharper cutoff. If you are looking to download the best vst synth plugin, then you should download Xfer Serum.
