Vintage Synth Filters

A collection of the best filters by vintage synthesizers

KRG
It was one of “K” first major successful portable analog monosynths and even today it is still a great little machine! In addition to two analog oscillators, it featured two resonant VCFs (voltage controlled filters). The VCF section is capable of high-pass, low-pass, notch and band-reject which is unique and different than your basic lowpass style filter. It makes a great alternative for MMG. KRG sounds fat, round, punch and percussive.
The circuit has been refurbished.


MMG
Historically, it is considered the very first synthesizer for musicians, it became the most popular synth of all time, and still is to this day! MMG uses a 4-pole (24 dB/oct) low-pass filter with cutoff, resonance and a modified ciruit to switch the filter at 2-pole (12 dB/oct). Amazingly filter design has yet to be surpassed by a better sounding filter. It's a filter that sounds so warm and smooth without rivals.
The circuit has been refurbished.


TSY
A custom-shop handmade vintage synthesizer with multiple tube stage, wired “on-air” with a lot of vintage NOS tubes, his filter section is a real unique “FX machine” with low-pass, notch and band-pass. TSY has a warm, rich, full sound of tubes!
The circuit has been revised and refurbished.

The Sound
Every synth is different with his personal sound.
MMG is fat and punching, MMG is warm and smooth, TSY is rich and warm. VSF is a collection with a complete palette of sounds for all music styles and FX.


. 10 differents programs at 7K and 5K
. Filter stage with frequency and resonance continuous controls
. Line Amp programs
. Real "Saturation" control
. Over 400MB library programs
. Available as single library or as discounted bundle

I'm not going to buy this library, I can resist, yes I can!!


....***sigh***, probably not...

Looks promising, Alex!
BTW, would it be possible to hook up an LFO to a filter
in Nebula, that would be cool, although I fear that the engine
couldn't cope with such fast 'sweeps'.
Please tell me I'm wrong; I'd love the idea of using these filters
on softsynths, because most of them sound so incredibly thin.
Very curious about the Line Amp.

Looks pretty amazing.

Anyway, I would like to listen some examples first. One of my dreams is to have a Nebula smooth filter, not just with fixed parameters but with the possibility of automation in my DAW. I don't know if this library is a milestone or if Nebula can't do smooth filterings (yet).

Try the Demo. Demo is stepped, commercial library is continuous variable control. The sound of both version is the same.

These sound amazing :)
Creative tools.

Reaper could create automated envelopes on the frequency and resonance. Click "Parameter Modulation" on the envelope lane and click LFO. Using nebula.dll seems give a more responsive sound than nebula reverb.dll.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9609516/alexB%2 ... 204416.wav

Here's a short example, first pass no effect, 2nd pass with KRG HPF on, 3rd pass sweep up (reson 10), 4th pass sweep down, 5th and later pass mouse dragged automation.

Automation recorded with nebula.dll under 256 samples latency.
I'm sure if you link the two sliders to a midi controller, you could do a lot better than me.

I personally enjoy the "TSY" band pass most.

I'll give a try to the demo, that's for sure! I've never was disappointed with your libraries, Alessandro... Anyway, if the demo is stepped I think it's not going to be useful for me, since I'm looking something a little less rough.

How continuous is the filter in the commercial library? I bought some Nebula filters before and I was never totally convinced, mainly because of the lacking of continuous variable control.

WOW! That's what I wanted to listen. Sounds really smooth, actually... More than I was expecting!

How it reacts with less radical tweakings?

Both controls are really continuous and smooth, please read the user manual.
The frequency is from 0 to 10 (20Hz to 20Khz) and the resonance from 0 to 10.
MiniMoog has different numbers for the frequency
-5 to +5 with center 0 : 20Hz to 20kHz. 0 = 1kHz


Moog eQ will come... It's really hard to sampling and programming in good way but I still working on it ;)

Unless you link it to a midi controller, finer tweak is kind of hard using nebula slider.
Of course you could always edit the envelope.

Synth no effect and then Reaper automated LFO for the band pass filter in smaller range.

This is a library I am interested in. Its a shame the demo isn't continuous as I only ever automate filters but I will give the demo a try.

Anyone with the library confirm that a smooth (step-less/glitch-less) sweep is possible?

Thanks.

You may listen to my two audio demos in page 1 and 2. In real time, small audio clips could happen for fast slider position change. But the rendered one seems fine.

It's smooth enough for me when doing slower frequency sweep on HPF or LPF with high resonance.
