A new emulation of the venerable Doepfer MS-404 - the vibe of classic hardware with all the features of modern software
Berlin, Germany (September 3, 2014) – Eisenberg Audio, a German audio software developer, has released a new software synthesizer: VIER, which means ‘four’ in German, emulates the Doepfer MS-404, a famous monophonic analogue synthesizer from the 1990s. Today, the now vintage MS-404 is not only known to synthesizer insiders, but enjoys a large fan base of musicians.
The Doepfer MS-404 was a single rack device, and VIER combines four independent rack modules in one seamless interface. VIER uses modern technologies for its synthesis engine, such as anti-aliasing oscillators, which are capable of audio range modulation and zero-delay feedback filters best known from synthesizers like LuSH, Monark or Diva.
VIER offers a wide range of options for parameter linking and cross modulation as well as intelligent voice management. Thus, VIER is much more than an emulation of a vintage synthesizer, and much more than the sum of four parts.
The parameter linking allows the building of groups, which can be manipulated and modulated by macro parameters together, offering fast access to the most important sound properties, and operates the four modules as one unit. VIER also contains a broad variety of factory presets that may be loaded, adjusted, saved, or marked as favorites. Additionally, users may create, save and load their own presets.
The intelligent voice management offers different creative modes, in which each note of a chord can be assigned to the four different modules and operated with unlimited polyphony. The results are truly unique and inspiring.
VIER runs stand-alone on Windows and Mac OS X or as plugin via VST, AU, RTAS and AAX
