8 VA-Beast Synthesizer

G-Stomper VA-Beast is a polyphonic virtual analog Synthesizer to produce complex synthetic sounds of any variety, designed for experienced sound designers as well as for complete beginners.

The idea behind the VA-Beast Synthesizer is to offer a flexible sound engine that features classic subtractive waveforms, multi-sample based audio sources as well as very powerful FM synthesis.

Each Oscillator offers 6 shapeable (regular) waveforms. These waveforms can also be synched using the additional sync Oscillator of each Oscillator unit. Having an extra sync Oscillator means you don’t need to sacrifice one of the regular Oscillators just to sync another one. You always have at least two Oscillators per voice even when using Oscillator sync.

Each Oscillator can hold a Sample-based instrument using the additional “Waveform” PCM. Sample- based (PCM) instruments are usually built of multiple samples, which are arranged across the keyboard and the velocity range.

Each Oscillator provides an internal FM mode when using the Dual Sine Waveforms. In this mode each Oscillator forms a 2-operator FM engine, which means you get a total of 4 operators per voice. In addition, the Oscillator modulation section offers a number of powerful modulation types, including OSC FM, Filter FM, Filter Resonance Modulation and Distortion RM.

Furthermore you’re always able route the Oscillator signals through two high quality Filter sections for further processing.
