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
VIER runs stand-alone on Windows and Mac OS X or as plugin via VST, AU, RTAS, and AAX
