Xen-Arts proudly announced their new Xen-FMTS 2 virtual instrument that is available as a free download.
Xen-FMTS 2 is a 4 Operator FM Synthesis VSTi with a specialized set of features for computer musicians interested in exploring the vast expressive possibilities of making music with alternative intonation systems. It is a freeware 32-bit plugin instrument for Windows that includes 115 patches, 55 microtunings and 56 partials files.
- Internally loads and externally receives both MTS (MIDI Tuning Standard) Bulk Dump and Single Note Microtuning Files
- Operator ratios can easily be set to values that are coincident with the micro tuning being used, thereby producing intonation related sidebands in the timbre of the instrument
- Microtonal pitch-bend ranges may be configured in cents, harmonics, and superparticular ratios
- Arbitrary microtonal pitch-shifting makes it possible to easily pitch transpose the oscillators in both octave and non-octave increments
Please note that Xen-Arts software never has been, and never will be, infected with computer viruses; this we promise. If your virus software ever indicates that our microtonal music software has a virus, this is what is known as a False Positive. Contacting the developer of your virus software to make them aware of the false positive is the best solution.
