Over 2021, after the succesful release of Surge 1.9, the Surge Synth team undertook an effort to rebuild Surge in JUCE and add a variety of features. This project resulted in the new version of Surge, called ‘Surge XT’.
SYNTH SPECIFICATIONS
GENERAL
Synthesis method: Subtractive hybrid

Each patch contain two scenes which are separate instances of the entire synthesis engine (except effects) that can be used to create layered or split patches.

Quick category-based patch browser with textual search and favorites

Runs on a variety of operating systems, plugin formats, and architectures

FACTORY SOUNDS
2779 patches

614 wavetables

OSCILLATORS
3 oscillators per scene, with 12 versatile oscillator algorithms: Classic, Modern, Wavetable, Window, Sine, FM2, FM3, String, Twist, Alias, S&H Noise and Audio Input.

Classic oscillator is a morphable pulse/saw/dual saw oscillator with a sub-oscillator and hard sync.

Modern oscillator is a mixable saw/pulse/triangle oscillator with an optional sub-oscillator mode for triangle (which can also change to sine or square) and hard sync.

FM2/FM3 oscillators consist of a carrier and 2 or 3 modulators and various options.

String oscillator uses two filtered waveguides to emulate plucked or bowed string sounds.

Twist oscillator is based on a very famous Eurorack macro oscillator, and it offers a myriad of synthesis options in a very simple and quick way.

Most algorithms (except FM2, FM3, Twist and Audio Input) offer up to 16-voice unison at the oscillator level.

Oscillator FM in 3 different configurations and ring modulation between oscillators 1-2 and 2-3.

Most oscillator algorithms (except FM2, FM3, Sine and Alias) are strictly band-limited, yet still cover the entire audible spectrum, delivering a clear, punchy and clean sound.

Noise generator with variable spectrum (available directly in the oscillator mixer).

FILTER BLOCK
Two filter units in 8 different configurations.

Feedback loop available in 7 of those configurations.

Available filter algorithms: Lowpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Legacy Ladder Lowpass (6-24 dB/oct), Vintage Ladder Lowpass (2 variations, each with and without gain compensation), Highpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Bandpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Notch (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 2 variations), Allpass (3 variations), Comb (positive and negative), S&H.

Open-source additions to our filter algorithms include: K35 and Diode Ladder filter types from Odin 2 synthesizer, 12 and 24 dB/oct multimode filters from OB-Xd, and weird but fascinating Cutoff Warp, Resonance Warp and Tri-Pole filters by Jatin Chowdhury!

Filters can self-oscillate (with excitation) and respond amazingly fast to cutoff frequency changes.

Waveshaper (43 shapes).

MODULATION
12 LFO units available, 6 are per voice and 6 are global for the whole scene.

DAHDSR envelope generators on every LFO.

LFO shapes consist of 7 deformable LFO waveforms, step sequencer, a fully-fledged multi-segment envelope generator (MSEG) with various curves and up to 128 nodes, and last but not the least – a formula modulator which utilizes Lua scripting language to provide completely custom modulator output.

Voice LFOs allow envelope retriggering in step sequencer mode.

Extremely fast and flexible modulation routing. Almost every continuous parameter can be modulated!

EFFECTS
16 effect units arranged as 4 inserts per scene, 4 sends and 4 master effects.

27 effect algorithms:

FILTERING:
3-band fully parametric EQ
11-band graphic EQ
Exciter
Resonator

PadSynth – Harmonic table pad synthesizer
8BitSynth – 8bit equation solver synthesizer
Modular – Fully configurable and routable synthesizer
Organ – Hammond-like tonewheel organ with rotary speaker
Vocoder – 8-band harmonic vocoder
FMSynth – DX-style 3-operator fm synthesizer
KSSynth – Karplus-Strong string modeling synth
SawSynth – Supersaw-type polysynth

The app also includes:
* Effects rack supporting 2 effects per machine. (20 effect types)
* Mixer desk with global Delay/Reverb effects
* Master section with parametric EQ and limiter
* Song sequencer

Supports automation on most controls and includes powerful editors for modifying recorded automation curves.

All files are stored on the user-accessible storage, and users can supply their own WAV files for use in the PCMSynth, BeatBox, and Vocoder.
Supports all uncompressed WAV files (8-16-24-32bit, any sampling rate).
The PCMSynth can also load SoundFont files (.sf2) and FL Studio mobile instruments (.instr, .ZIP)
Class-compliant USB MIDI controllers can be connected via USB OTG cable on devices running at least Android 3.2 and supporting USB host mode.

1632417863_lm_screenshot

LoudMax is a Look-Ahead Brickwall Loudness Maximizer Plugin with a clean transparent sound. It is designed to retain the original character of the music as much as possible even at high compression levels.

Release notes v1.40:

• Peak hold function for the gain reduction meter.
• Improved meter responsiveness.
• VST3: Fixing meters not being displayed on some hosts.
• VST3: Added bypass functionality.
• VST3: Avoid unnecessary latency changes.
• Added legacy 32 Bit version for Win XP and Vista.
• Improved algorithm.

Usage notes for VST2 / VST3 / AU:
• Hold down the Shift key to adjust the sliders more precisely.
• Click in the lower right corner to toggle the GUI size between Normal and Large. Available only if the host supports resizing. Not available on Windows and Mac legacy versions.
• The “Fader Link” function works reliably only in the graphical user interface. In the “generic” or “controls” view of some DAW hosts, the link works, but the output fader change is not displayed.
• Installation instructions can be found in the readme in the zip file or through the links in the tutorials section.

Main range of application:
• Audio Mastering
• Output Limiter/Maximizer for web radio stations

Controls:
• One slider for threshold, one for the output level.
• Meters for input, output and gain reduction in relation to the desired threshold.

Leo McCormack SPARTA v1.5.0 free VST audio plugin suite 0 (0)

SPARTA is a collection of flexible VST audio plug-ins for spatial audio production, reproduction and visualisation, developed primarily by members of the Acoustics Lab at Aalto University, Finland.

In particular, this release sees the addition of 9 new plug-ins:

– compass_binauralVR: essentially, this is the same as the compass_binaural plugin, except it also supports listener translation around the receiver position and multiple simultaneous listeners.

– compass_spatedit: a flexible spatial editing plug-in intended to be used with 2 instances. The first instance you make of the plugin will allow you to specify marker directions and it will output the beamformed signals, which you can then equalise/re-balance/modulate/swap/modify as you wish. These modified signals can then be routed to the second instance of the plug-in. The ambient components of the first plugin are then also sent internally to the second plugin instance. The edited sound-field is then reconstructed and outputted by the second instance of the plugin.

– compass_gravitator: a sound-field focussing plugin affecting only the direct sound components in the sound scene. It essentially pulls sound sources towards user defined marker directions with a certain degree of “gravitational pull”.

– hodirac_binaural: a parametrically enhanced binaural ambisonic decoder, based on the higher-order Directional Audio Coding (HO-DirAC) method

– hodirac_decoder: the loudspeaker decoder variant

– hodirac_upmixer: the ambisonic upmixing variant

– sparta_spreader: a source panner with coherent and incoherent source spreading options. While by default it loads HRIR data for binaural spreading, the approach is quite general; for example, you could also create synthetic microphone array recordings of spread sources if you wish, by simply loading a SOFA file of microphone array IR measurements instead.

– sparta_ambiRoomSim: a basic shoebox room simulator with Ambisonics output, based on the image-source method. Its main niche is that it supports multiple sources and Ambisonic receivers. The output audio for the receivers is stacked up to the 64 channel limit. e.g., you can have up to 16x1st order, 4x3rd order receivers, or 1x7th order receiver.

– sparta_decorrelator: a multi-channel signal decorrelator, which you can use to make reproduced sound scenes more diffuse when applied, e.g., after sparta_ambiDEC on the loudspeaker signals.
