apeSoft has released iVCS3 1.5, the latest version of their VCS3-inspired software synthesizer.
The update adds new synth features, support for the latest Audiobus, Bluetooth Audio and MIDI support and more.
The VCS3, originally created in 1969 by Peter Zinovieff’s EMS company, is an all-in-one portable synthesizer, housed in a small, wooden case. The electronics were largely designed by David Cockerell and the machine’s distinctive visual appearance was the work of electronic composer Tristram Cary.
iVCS3 is an official software emulation of the original VCS3.
