Free Pulse Synthesizer Editor

At this moment i'm involved in a Free Software Editor for one of the most beautiful monosynths ever made, the fantastic Waldorf Pulse.

The Synth has the very desired analog sound but lacks of a good user interface and the integration with the computer. As a musician and programmer I decided to improve this situation by developing my own VST Editor for Windows and OSX.

The plugin is in a beta state but the most important features are done.

Current features:

 - VST2 and VST3 (x86).
 - Full control of the synth parameters using Midi CCs.
 - Preset management as standard .fxp / .vstpreset.
 - Host independent Midi communication.
 - Midi in/out port and channel selection.
 - Supports automation of all parameters.
 - Sends Notes from the host.
 - Tempo sync. Midi Clock /Start /Stop from the host.

Pending features:

 - Sysex program dump.
 - VST2 and AU OSX version.
 - Manual.

Known limitations:

- The plugin requires the exclusive control of the selected port so it's not possible to use the same port for other instruments. I recommend an USB-to- MIDI converter cable.

Tested Hosts:

- Renoise 2.8 WIN XP, WIN 7.
- Reaper 4.32. WIN XP, WIN 7.
