Dmitry Sches Premiers Diversion – VST Synth For Windows
Dmitry Sches has premiered Diversion, a four-oscillator mega-synth for Windows. Diversion offers 4 oscillators with a wide range of different waveforms with a near to zero level of aliasing. No, the waveforms are not wavetables!
The oscillators generate sounds in real-time by using our algorithms, which don’t degrade the sound quality at high frequencies. All waveforms have two independent parameters X and Y allowing you to adjust the timbre of the produced sound. The oscillators also feature such synthesis techniques as FM, RM, wave shaping and filtering.
Two bus processors in Diversion allow you to transform the oscillator’s output into a wide variety of possible sounds. Each bus processor consists of a stereo filter with a lot of different modes, distortion and LO-FI section. We have implemented many filter modes and types of saturation stages to bring you a great armoury for creating arbitrary patches, including popular Trance, Psy, Dub Step and Ambient sounds.
Diversion uses two flexible FX lines for a separated processing of each bus processor’s output. With the separated FX processing you can make a lot of layered sounds, even which has two parts located in two fully independent sound spaces. Up to 8 effect instances can be stacked in one FX line, which is enough to create any desired processing chain.
Typically, after a non-linear processing of the waveform inside the oscillators and bus processors, digital aliasing can occur. Diversion takes care of this by using oversampling up to 8X within a whole processing path, excluding FX section. Models of all processing modules in Diversion are designed using at least 2X oversampling. This allows Diversion to achieve a perfect sound quality with an insignificant level of aliasing.
Many parameters in Diversion can be modulated by 4 LFOs, 4 ADSR Envelopes, 4 MSEGs and one XY-controller, called Master Morph. These options, along with use of the Modulation Matrix, can really breathe life into a sound. Of course, automation and MIDI controllers are supported. Last but not least, Diversion features a 32-step Arpeggiator / Sequencer and a 16-step Trance Gate module, which turns Diversion into a full-fledged workstation.
Dmitry Sches’ Diversion costs $150 for a limited time and is available now.
