As an overall concept, Acrobatics
simplified controls and packed implementations to
the highest grade to push-up users creativity first
and give steady look and maximum usability to the
three polyphonic synthesizers. A reasonable set of
sounds for each synth is included.
FRET is an accurate reproduction of
phase modulation synthesizers of the eighties:
reproduces pianos, basses, organs and bells patches
with ease, and it can explore wild and spacey atmos
using alternative programming.
GRIT is voted to pulses, PWM and
organ-like sounds: uses a proprietary mix of phase
distortion principles in order to produce its
sounds. It is the dirty of the family, watch out for
massive aliasing and punchness.
PEAK is the analogue baby of the
lot. Classic acid and house tones are at hand. Here
the LFO addresses pitch of a clean square or
sawtooth waveform with typical Minisynth series
advanced modulation extras.
Common look and feel and
standardized location of knobs and switches goes in
the direction of helping musician when in a busy
musical work, when he/she certainly requires instant
access to basic synthesis controls and settings to
fit in the mix. The Minisynth series collection is
also suitable for educational purposes for its
separate interpretations of most important synthesis
methods and applications.
The Minisynth series for Windows (VST) is available
as freeware as part of the KVR Developer Challenge
