Software Description

TERA is a modular software synthesizer based on five different synthesis technologies including the the revolutionary Spectrum synthesis. This new synthesis allows the creation and manipulation of resonant bodies with up to 128 (!) formant frequencies. The innovative user interface of VirSyn TERA sets a new standard in design and functionality. This extremely simplifies the access to the huge sound space of its predecessor.

The classical modulation matrix together with a simple method for patching modules with virtual cables makes operating the modular system of VirSyn TERA as easy as other synths with a fixed structure.

The integrated step sequencer is pattern/song oriented and can even be used in a VST host environment.

Highlights:


16 modular synths with up to 64 voices

  • Virtual analog synthesis
  • FM synthesis
  • Waveshaping
  • Physical modeling
  • Spectrum synthesis

Integrated effects

  • Chorus/Flanger/Phaser
  • Distortion
  • Echo/Delay
  • Room simulator/Reverb

Pattern/Stepsequencer

  • Programmable Arpeggiator
  • Live performance

New in v3.2.1

  • New Multi envelope mode "free running" independent from note on/off.
  • Distortion effect now stereo mode.
  • Project load/save handling improved, program numbers no longer translated to 1..16.
  • Improved VST 2.3 backwards compatibility ( Nuendo 3.2 ).
  • Sonar 5: crash on MIDI program change.
  • Tracktion 3: User interface problems fixed.
  • Intel based Macs: Subdivision parameter not working.
  • Intel based Macs: Overdrive effect type selection not working.
  • Intel based Macs: Reverb effect broken.
  • Intel based Macs: Master volume had no effect.
  • Host projects transferred from Intel to PPC or vice versa lost global and mix settings.
  • Arpeggiator sometimes eats notes.
  • GUI sometimes showing wrong synth page.
  • Crashes on playing samples with extremely short loop settings.
  • ProTools: Detuning problem with samplerates other than 44,100 Hz.
  • Multi-segment envelopes: delete/insert could lead to changing other envelopes.
  • Mac: response to MIDI program change messages improved.
  • Mac: no sound after project loading if multiple instances were used.
  • Mac: Tooltip help didn't pop up.
  • Mac standalone: Transport buttons not working correctly.
  • Sonar: Arpeggio didn't stopped after sequencer stop.
  • PC standalone: Occasional crashes on audio driver selection DirectX <-> ASIO.
  • PC standalone: Sequencer start/stop with space key didn't work.
  • GUI redraw no longer stopping when tooltip help is displayed.

V3.2.1: bug in step sequencer

V 3.2.1 has a bug in the step sequencer: The "1/2 dotted" note length is the same as the "1/2 standard" length.

BEST SYNTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IT is a SUPER PSEUDO ANALOG SYNTH + other methods of synthesizing + cool sequensor+ 2 arpedgiators + more modulators and huge matrix + 8D-XY +
+++++++++++++ COOL SOUND.

THANKS HARRY !

VirSyn TERA v3.0

I have dowmloaded this programme but cannot install it, Can you Help?
appears to have no install file!

Terra Vsti version

Only problem I can find with this instrument is when using it in a VST host the interface is too large for the screen...yeah, I know, change my screen resolution...but a better solution would be to change things so that the interface is half the size of what it is
when opened in a VST host.

Who among you wants to keep changing your screen res every time you use VirSyn?

Ohm Boys had exactly the same problem with their multiple delay unit, and eventually they embodied the option of a smaller VST interface at customers request.

How about a smaller interface for VST VirSin?

Unable to Install VirSyn TERA

Again a Software that wasn´t Tested before throwing it on the market...

Re: Unable to Install VirSyn TERA

: Again a Software that wasn´t Tested before throwing it on the market...

I just sent you an email with the demo since your
download seems to be a corrupted file. I hope that you can then see ( and hear ! ) that our software was tested before throwing...

demosongs

the demo songs are very cool
i guess if i can export them to midi ican fully learn more of this awesome sw
i'm not planning in ripping them
anyone knows way around this?
thnx

Re: VirSyn-horrible clicks

i have had absolutely ZERO problems with Virsyn on a
P3-550 256mRam,SCSI h/d using directx7 full duplex
drivers for a hoontech xg card, 23ms latency works great
32 voices is a cpu stress test but under normal
usage it is one of the best softsynths i have yet
encountered, i got em all too,pro52,attack, mellotron,
soundforum,etc thnx for hearing my 2 cents worth

Single Keys

Can only get single key sounds, no chords????

Hi,

you can get chords also, you'll find the parameter
to adjust the maximum number of voices in the AMP module. Just click on it and you'll got a menu where you can choose from 1 to 32 voices for this part.

Re: VirSyn-horrible clicks

Man, that was harsh. Which software program out there doesn't have a few bugs?
Don't quelch their innovation just cuz they didn't get everything perfected yet.

I've stripped this sucker down in accordance with the posted and well-regarded CWU optimization protocols. The problem is NOT with my computer.

The demo I downloaded demonstrated horrible clicks...like those of an undamped trigger...in sequencer mode. I don't know if this is a disabling device, but it makes demo'ing the product highly unpleasant.

i don't got any clicks my runs sweet like a tap
