Expert Sleepers Silent Way

Silent Way is a suite of plug-ins designed for use as part of a modular analog synthesiser system. The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound; rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs, etc., of an analog system.

Silent Way Voice Controller

Silent Way is a suite of plug-ins designed for use as part of a modular analog synthesiser system. The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound; rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs, etc., of an analog system.

There are currently two plug-ins in the Silent Way suite: Silent Way DC and Silent Way Voice Controller. All plug-ins feature full MIDI and OSC control; MIDI/OSC scriptability; and sample-accurate handling of MIDI note messages.

Silent Way DC generates constant output signals. It is intended to be used with parameter automation (via MIDI or directly by the host application) to generate varying signals. For example, you could use it as an LFO where you draw out the LFO waveform in your host''s parameter automation GUI.

Silent Way Voice Controller is a virtual instrument plug-in designed to directly control an analog synthesiser by generating the appropriate CV and gate signals via an appropriate audio interface. By listening to the synthesiser''s output signal, the plug-in is able to calibrate itself to generate the appropriate pitch CV for the incoming MIDI notes.

Silent Way is now available in Mac OS X Audio Units format, priced at $49. Mac and Windows VST formats to follow.
