QuikQuak Glass Viper Synth

The official Glass Viper's website describes this synth very well. It's a synthesizer with unique waveform shaping, that has a deep and natural sense of movement. Going beyond analogue simulation, into a truly organic sound, from simple old synths to grungy filthy basses, or delicate pianos to strange unnatural film effects.
Instead of taking a sample or oscillator and applying just filters and FX techniques, Glass Viper bends the actual shape of its waveforms through a series of moving control points. Up to four of these swirling and changing sounds can be layered together to create a huge range of instruments. Glass Viper allows you to really shake things up with a deep, natural sense of movement.

From the start, Glass Viper's goal was to make sound creation visual, and distance itself from mathematics. Making something with a unique sound was also a priority, and in a world full of synthesizers, this had to mean a fundamental difference. Without the complexity of many changeable modules, Glass Viper encourages play and experimentation. Most of the presets available were born from experimentation, rather than setting out to make a particular sound.

Some people on music production forums are actually stunned that this synth didn't receive more attention. The whole "moving waveforms thing" is great. Maybe the GUI is not the best one but the rest is innovative, quality piece of software. Currently, on my list there are two synths I would love to have - Lenner Digital Sylenth (a little bit too expensive for me :| ) and Glass Viper.

Don't forget to check the demo too. After all, it's still just my opinion :) But to be honest, I have a feeling that it's almost mission impossible to find better synth for 35 pounds :) Mp3 preview demo shows some of the 128 presets (no external effects used - just pure Glass Viper)

Price: £ 35
