A new beta for the PG-8X synth
Martin Lüder posted a new beta version of its PG-8X virtual synth, inspired by the Roland JX-8P, which has been under development since 2011.
The PG-8X can operate in monophonic, polyphonic and unison modes. It features two DCOs, a VCF, a VCA, an LFO, two exponential envelope generators, a stereo chorus effect, as well as aftertouch and portamento. MIDI Learn is included and the plug-in can automatically adjust its sample rate.
In this new beta, you can increase the number of voices from 6 to 12, sync the LFO to the host tempo and choose the retrigger mode for the LFO (free, soft and hard). The preset system has also been improved.
Martin Lüder adds that some elements are still missing in this version, such as some GUI components, parameter fine tuning and documentation.
The PG-8X plug-in is available in VST and AU 32 and 64-bit formats for Mac OS X and Windows. You can download this new beta for free from Dropbox.
Here’s what the GUI looks like in this beta:
