The Vee Ones first true official release

UPDATED! One first bug-fix release.
6 years 4 months ago.

The proto-toys ain't proto no more, but still toys nevertheless. The Vee One's features:
  • a pure stand-alone JACK client with JACK-session and both JACK MIDI and ALSA MIDI input support;
  • a LV2 instrument plugin.

Yep, it's all free, open-source Linux audio software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2 or later.

They're:

synthv1 - an old-school polyphonic synthesizer

an old-school all-digital 4-oscillator subtractive polyphonic synthesizer with stereo fx.

Hi, thanks for a great synth! I like the clean interface. Resetting with middle mouse button is very convenient. There are only a few problems:
1. some knobs are misleading, because when you can only switch something on/off, they are not needed
2. some abbreviations are difficult to decipher for a beginner like me (like DCO, DCF, DCA etc.; I know only LFO)
3. some labels are not fully visible - e. g. in the DEF1 section: pitchbend, modwheel, pressure
4. you can't change wave shape when scrolling mouse over the knob (works only scrolling over the list)
5. the screens' color could follow some system color
6. jack version seems not to work (no sound), only lv2; I had no problems with compilation (on debian testing amd64)
But of coz it's a really nice synth with a fresh and clean interface, keep it up:)

1. some knobs are misleading, because when you can only switch something on/off, they are not needed
i agree. at some moment i was planning to replace those on/off knobs with some toggle buttons, but hey, i'm still procrastinating it :)

2. some abbreviations are difficult to decipher for a beginner like me (like DCO, DCF, DCA etc.; I know only LFO)
aha. no problem: you'll get it easy: DCO is for digitally controlled oscillator (as opposing to the old analog-era acronym VCO, voltage controlled oscillator); DCF for digitally controlled filter (old VCF) and now you may infer immediiately that DCA is for digitally controlled amplifier (ex-VCA);

3. some labels are not fully visible - e. g. in the DEF1 section: pitchbend, modwheel, pressure
yep, known issue. though it depends a lot on which widget style or theme or font you're settled for your desktop environment (DE).

4. you can't change wave shape when scrolling mouse over the knob (works only scrolling over the list)
that was already addressed on svn trunk.

5. the screens' color could follow some system color
yeah, you're not alone on this one too. but i really like that golden hue on dark themes :)

6. jack version seems not to work (no sound), only lv2; I had no problems with compilation (on debian testing amd64)
as 4. most probably is already fixed on svn trunk.

ps. you can treat yourself with the latest snapshots if you dare ;)

cheers
