For the next few days / weeks I would like to focus more on expanding Vst Instruments / Effects category. On 18th November 2009, KX77FREE, has released a major update for his Kx-Modulad synth. Lot’s of changes, improvements and it just feels like a new synth.
Kx-Modulad is a free virtual analog modular synth, but all modulations are pre-connected (on cables on the GUI). It’s not a synth for beginners so if you’re just starting with subtractive synthesis for example, then maybe it’s a better idea to load this plugin 2-3 months later 😉 because it’s one of the more complexed, freeware synths available.
I like the oscillators. Only two but each one contains two waveforms + sub-waveform between you can mix. Also, thanks to included WaveTracer tool (based on additive synthesis) you can create easily some new waveforms. I won’t go deeper into details – just take a look at screenshot and you’ll quickly notice that Kx-Modulad is very deep synth which requires knowledge. It’s up to you to decide whether you’re able to tame it or not.
There are 128 patches available that cover 70′ , 80′ sounds – I must say, I like most presets. Maybe it’s my DAW only but it seems that this synth can be quite CPU expensive, on the other hand it gives that nice analog, modular, warm feeling.
