Klerhaim N1 Analog Synthesizer with Virtual Circuit Emulation Technology
Eplex7 DSP Klerhaim N1 – analog VST plugin synthesizer with virtual circuit emulation technology.
Eplex7 DSP claims: There are many analog emulation synthesizers available, but unfortunately, 99,5% of them are far from real analog hardware synths (sounding sterile, digital, cold, boring, robotic, uniformly, numb and sharp).
Why? Firstly because they are made by coders, not electronic engineers. They perfectly understand the code but not circuits, electronic components and physics. We are both: programmers and educated electronic engineers with more than 18 years of experience. And also… basic code cannot behave like electricity in real analog circuits. That is a reason why we developed our own virtual circuit technology. We are emulating whole analog circuits, electronic components and modules of synthesizer + their behavior in various situations, noises, feedbacks, interfering signals etc.
In real analog synthesizer everything is moving, changing, modulating, living…analog synth is like a living organism. Nothing is static. The electricity and circuits are in constant “chaos”. Analog oscillator waveforms are not precise, sharp and always the same like in digital synths. They are changing their shape, have a noise, harmonics, ringing, modulating their tone / pitch, volume etc.
Also output from oscillator module is saturated. It is not just output of whole synthesizer but output of every circuit / module. More volume of oscillator = more saturation and color.
Analog envelopes (modulating filter, amp or pitch) are not linear like in digital synths. They are exponential and changing their shape in time / different one with every different note. Including some noise and harmonics too. The peaks / spikes are not digitally sharp but analogue round.
The filters are creating small distortion/harmonics. They are not perfectly stable. The values are changing 0,1%. Including is the noise and output are saturated. Simply everything is “living” in an analog synthesizer because of the laws of physics/electricity. Every note sounds a little bit different, that is why analog sound is rich, organic, warm, fat, and like a real instrument.
Eplex7 DSP have successfully emulated analog behavior, individual circuits and electronic components. Klerhaim N1 is not exact emulation of one existing analog synthesizer. Eplex7 DSP preferred to analyze more than 5 analog synths of vintage 60s 70s and 80s era. The analyze of individual circuits (oscs, filters, lfos, envelopes, etc.) not just output sound and combine various different vintage analog circuits to one complex synthesizer VST plug-in emulation.
