Version 2

This is the V-Synth updated with Version 2 software

Version 2 brings new analog-modeled oscillators, a completely new set of patches, and expressive features such as Sound Shaper, Multi-Step Modulator, Rhythm Kit Screen and more.

A notable addition is the presence of the classic SuperSaw, typical of the JP-8000 and JP-8080, and a staple of Trance music.  SuperSaw generates multiple sawtooth waveforms in unison, to achieve a distinct sound often heard in electronic music.

Other improvements for the analog-modeled oscillators include the Polyphonic Feedback Oscillator for screaming sounds, and an X-mod (Cross Modulation) Oscillator for creating clangorous distorted timbres.


Other welcome additions include a Multi-Step Modulator, whic makes complex animated sound design easy.

Version 2 definitely brings the V-Synth to a new level.
