Synevo : new Ruin drum VST
Synevo : new Ruin drum VST21.07.2009 07:10:48
Following up on the Drummm VST, here is another VST by Ruin, in the same vein of nasty sizzling drum sounds. You will notice that it only has a few presets, because we wanted to let you explore the sonic possibilities of this creation. We are planning to release sound banks for both Drummm and Synevo, so if you have any presets to share, email us at email@example.com. You can download the synth here (in source version for Synthmaker, and as a DLL for windows, sadly no macosx version yet):
Let's hear what Ruin has to say about Synevo.
So, another free VST. This one carries on the lineage of Drummm. It is essentially a richly featured Drummm, also it happens to look a hell of a lot nicer. Second thing you will notice (first thing is that it looks shit tons better.) is that it has more than twice the amount of controls Drummm had. I had stated that I wanted Drummm to be super simple, no frills. Synevo gives you all the niceties that you perhaps wish that Drummm had, like a filter, full ADSR, two kinds of modulation, FM and PM (Phase Modulation.) I also added a few more interesting things. On the overall output envelope there is first a knob, than a switch; putting this switch into the left position activates the variable decay and the knob controls range. Essentially it generates a random decay length, with range moving clockwise changing the size of variance. This was added to give a more 'human' feel; make the drums less static. There is also a 'Random' section that can be applied to the bit crusher or to the VCF. Use this to make goofy, grungey, ugly, smooth FM/PD sounds.
