SonicProjects VM BundleThe VM Bundle is an adaped software synth bundle exclusively made for the SM Pro AudioV-Machine and VFX Mac and PC. It includes:- an adapted version of OP-X (virtual analog synth)- an adapted version of Stringer (sample based vintage string machine)- two custom made effect plugins (reverb and delay)- prepared banks in VFX format with many ready to play presets- a BCR2000 toolkit offering a custom sysex presetOther than many other software synths that have not been adapted to the V-Machineand take too much CPU ressources to run flawlessly in the V-Machine and requirefor complicated authoritzation using wizard files, the VM Bundle is tailor-made forthe CPU and OS of the V-Machine and delivers rock solid and smooth performance ata buffer size of 256 samples or lower, even with presets that use massive amountsof reverb and delay effects.
So you never have to care about possible CPU overrunsthat could produce crackling and audio interrupts. The VM Bundle is designed to runsmoothly within the given borthers.
Licensing needs no wizard files and can be donedirectly within VFX after dragging the contents to the VFX library. Non-GUI versionsof the plugins are provided for V-Machine internal use only that offer optimizedperformance without the overheads of the not any more needed graphical user interfaceengine.
That's why the VM Bundle is able to deliver world class VA sounds in thistiny and CPU-wise not too powerful box, with a reliablity and stability that's goodenough for professional live application.
Included BCR2000 ToolkitSince a virtual analog VA synth asks for knobs and buttons to edit rather that scrollfor parameters in a cryptic menu, the VM Bundle includes a complete toolkit for oneof the most recommended controller box in the budget price range that still offersplenty of knobs and buttons: the Behringer BCR2000.
The BCR2000 toolkit offers a customsysex preset that matches the premapped banks which are also included in the bundle as anexchangement option.
This preset can be read in into BCR2000 from any MIDI sequencer orMIDI player and offers a dedicated hardware control for every single parameter of OP-Xand the most important ones of Stringer, organized in handy logical groups and also usingthe push function of the upper knob row, either for separate functions, or to center values(e.
g. master tune, pan) instantly. Since the BCR2000 offers endless rotary controls withLED rings and LED buttons this setup allows for MIDI feedback that automatically updatesall controls to the new values on preset change for value jump free operation.
Printabletemplates give an immediate oversight on which controls are mapped to which parameters. This setup is a dream for anyone who loves the intuitive programming of old analog synths.
It's now possible too in the digital world, with the advantage of full reliability, lowweight and unlimited storage capability. The first preset of the OP-X bankPresets can be switched manually or by external MIDI program changes.
Concerning connectivitythe the box offers a standard MIDI input, two USB ports for MIDI keyboards, controllers, dongles,sticks or hard drives, an USB port for synchronization, jack stereo line outputs, a mini jackheadphone connector and a mini jack stereo input connector.
