“The Spirit of Analogue
DIVA – Dinosaur Impersonating Virtual Analogue Synthesizer
The oscillators, filters and envelopes closely model components found in some of the great monophonic and polyphonic synthesizers of yesteryear. Modules can be mixed and matched so you can build hybrids, but what sets Diva apart is the sheer authenticity of the analogue sound. This comes at the cost of quite a high CPU-hit, but we think it was worth it: Diva is the first native software synth that applies methods from industrial circuit simulators (e.g. PSpice) in realtime. The behaviour of zero-delay-feedback filters when pushed to the limit clearly demonstrates the advantages of this groundbreaking approach.
Check out more than 1200 presets. If your computer can handle it, try them in “Divine” mode.
Why she’s hot!
authentic, unrivaled analogue sound
up to 40% less CPU-hit than version 1.0
multithreading support for modern CPUs – more polyphony, less overload
even bigger library of gorgeously organic presets
resizable editor window, alternative skins available shortly
the essence of 7 or 8 vintage synths for about 1% of the cost
…and so much more!
DIVA is *extremely* demanding on CPU
Despite exploiting all conceivable opportunities to make Diva run as fast as possible, the level of analogue simulation we put into her simply requires extraordinary CPU power. Even if the multicore/multi-threaded option works fine on your system, please consider “freezing” tracks to lower the burden she puts on your CPU. After all she’s a Diva, and Divas have DEMANDS!
Finally – Diva’s demo restriction is a mild crackling sound that appears at irregular intervals.”
