[ANN] New Open Source Wavetable Synth: "Vital"

Post by Audiojunkie »

I didn't see this posted elsewhere, so I thought I'd share:

Matt Tytel (developer of Helm), is coming out with a new open source wavetable synth called, "Vital". See links below:

I couldn't find where it's announced that it's Open Source.

New Synth in the Works
I’m working on a new synth! The goal: create the most popular synthesizer in the world.. Not sure if that’s achievable, let alone measureable, but if I hit a million downloads I think I’ll call it a success.

So you want to hear about features. You’ll have to stay tuned for more blog posts then! I can tell you now that there are some analog modelled filters (ZDF, WTF? BBQ), interesting modulation capabilities and a very visual and animated UI (with low CPU usage).

And for those wondering, this new synth will be open-source and pay-what-you-want like just like Helm.

I just emailed Matt to get the word straight from him:

Yep!


Hi Matt,

Will Vital Synth, like Helm, be an open source project that supports Linux? Thank you in advance for your response!

Dang, even more hyped for this now... It's really cruel of them to keep teasing us like this. :P

Matt Tytel deserves a lot of praise.

Not only for releasing high quality libre software, but also for setting the bar higher for everyone else and for selling his stuff, yes - libre software developers too need to feed themselves, and charging money for good products like Helm and Vital without compromising its licensing sends a strong message of self-respect to all libre software developers who don't do it as a hobby.
The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had everything in common. [Acts 4:32]
