Blamsoft has released Viking Synth – a software synth inspired by the Moog Voyager monophonic analog synthesizer.
Viking Synth is an Audio Unit Extension Instrument that works as a plug-in inside host apps. It is compatible with GarageBand, Cubasis, MTS, and AUM.
Viking Synth has three continuously variable wave oscillators, two ladder filters with a Dual Lowpass or Highpass/Lowpass configuration, a multi-wave LFO, and two modulation busses.
According to Blamsoft, Viking Synth uses the same algorithms as the Viking Synth Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason, so you get a ‘desktop quality plug-in at an iOS friendly price’.
Here’s a video intro:
Viking Synth comes with 178 presets in the categories Bass, Bright Lead, Electro Bass, FX, Percussive Lead, and Soft Lead. Note that Cubasis and MTS do not currently support Audio Unit presets. Presets work perfectly with GarageBand and AUM.
Here’s a comparison between Viking and a Voyager:
Viking Synth is available for US $4.99 in the App Store.
