Kurzweil V.A.S.T. Physical Modelling?

Published on Nov 29, 2019 cube48

"Hey, I'm crude boy and so is my physical modelling 'proof of concept' V.A.S.T. Program and lame A maj scale impro.
Layer generates bandpassed and shaped noise, modulated by MonoPressure, ModWheel and FUN. Pitch is achieved in FX section by series of '374 PitcherB' algorithms tuned with modulated Pitch by GKeyNum and PtchOffs by PWheel. At the end of FX chain body resonance is faked with adjusted '384 Woodenize' algorithm. It's crude string synthesis with a lot of noise artefacts, limited articulation (there's still plenty of room for improvement) but it's funny how V.A.S.T. can be bent.

PC3 Program can be downloaded here:

P.S.: Yes, there is no keybed on my PC3. It was simply interferring with Linnstrument too much so it's meticulously uninstalled, packed and safely stored :-)"
