4Front BassModul

The bass module is a morph between sample playback and a synthesizer. Original string excitation is sampled, and then sound is modeled.
Playing chords will add extra fat rumble, like when playing a real bass guitar.
Bass guitar range was artifically extended up and down, so that higher notes and parts can be played as well.

4Front Piano Module

A small and versatile piano module with unique sound. Unlike many other piano modules (like those gigabyte pianos), this module will never overload CPU. It will never stick notes, and never break the sound or click during live performances.
This piano module is neither a sample player, nor synthesized. It's a hybrid technology, that combines both methods. This resulted in a great module size reduction and light CPU usage.

Cheeze

This vst plugin emulates the classic string ensemble sound, made popular by such classic synths as the Crumar Performer or the Arp Solina. Cheeze Machine generates sound by feeding a simple, saw-like waveform, into a chorus ensemble emulator, a 6-stages phaser, and a reverb.
This vst plugin is fully midi-controlled. The midi controller assignments are detailed in the included .pdf documentation. With up to 32 notes polyphony, and an incredibly low CPU usage, you can now play these big phazed string pads like crazy .

Hard-Boiled Wonderland v1.01

A simple (monophonic) 5 oscillator additive synth (the first oscillator is the root - i.e. the input frequency/MIDI note). Has a scope so you can see what kind of waveform you're creating, although this part wasn't coded particularly well, so it tends to slow down your GUI updates (although not your audio playback, due to the way the VST standard works). It can be switched off by clicking on it, however.

Integrated Doobee VST sequencer and synthesiser

Integrated Doobee combines sequencing abilities with a monophonic synthesiser. It is novel in it's approach to sequencing, providing seperate sequencers for note position and also pitch sequencing. In practice this means that it is possible to acheive well specified analogue style sequencing and also a range of evolving 'systems music' melodic sequences. Whilst the above description may sound complicated, Integrated Doobee is intuitive and easy to use, and is suitable for real-time performance and improvisation. Integrated Doobee was designed with Ross Bencina's excellent Audio Mulch in mind. Whilst Mulch offers superlative processing abilities it is somewhat limited in sequencing abilities. Integrated Doobee aims to address this issue. Integrated Doobee has been shown to run in other hosts.

Update (17/6/03). This update improves synchronisation, and adds a visual readout to the tempo slider. In effect Integrated Doobee now handles unusual time signatures more logically, and makes a perfect partner to Dr Liebezeit.

Sophia

Sophia excels in creating intriguing ambiences and modulated sound effects. The initial sound generation results from the accumulation of 4 oscillators and a sub-harmonic wave table. Multiple stages of delay and reverb combine with various low pass / band pass filtering controlled by an LFO network. In addition, two separate low pass filters are after the output stage of channels 1/3 2/4 respectively. All sound processing & signal generation is connected to the master LFO network (parameter blast-m). The LFO network makes it easy to modulate any key parameter without using external MIDI controller modulation. However, all of ABV4 Sophia's parameters are controllable via MIDI control change messages.

The Kick

Ticky Clav

This plugin emulates the ultra-funky sound of the Hohner Clavinet, forever associated with Stevie Wonder's "Superstition". The synth engine is based on a physical modeling algorithm, faithfully reproducing the strings vibration and the 2 pickups of the Clavinet Model C. Special attention has been given to reproduce the non-linear interferences in strings decay, for an even more realistic sound. The characteristic "click" sound on key release is also emulated. A built-in wah-wah effect with selectable manual/autowah mode is also included.
Ticky Clav is a DonationWare. Go to the author's site to make a donation.
