Lemur Template for free VST - Synth1

  • I wanted to make another dedicated VST template for a great free VST, the Synth1. You can easily find it online and it is a fabulous VAS based on the architecture of the Nord Lead 2 by Ichiro Toda. The VST is also recently available for Mac, though I'm not sure where the ccm settings file would go on Mac. Unzip and make sure to place the ccm file in the Synth1 settings folder. Load up Synth1, click on the Opts button and under the MIDI tab, load the Synth1 file (LeSynth1.ccm). Everything (except poly voices selector-not available for remote control) will be adjustable from dials/switches on your screen with the notable exception that you will have to expand the LFO window to reach all LFO parameters. You can set the Midi Channel for this template. All objects are additionally set to Parent Midi so if you want to set this to a Midi output from Lemur different than MIDI 0, click on the Parent object/Midi Settings in the editor and change it to whatever MIDI out you have set up. Please leave feedback here.

    Several sites have numerous patch banks. You can grab the Synth1 VST here:

  • I've done some bug fixes and added a feature not originally in Synth1 (well, it sort of is but takes an LFO, this frees that up): AutoPan. Uploaded 7/18 to the site.

    Something I am really liking about Lemur is that through scripting and building interfaces/objects, you can create things like LFOs and have them customizable to send out to programs as MIDI CC/OSC controls. For those with iPads and Monomes, it seems like a good mix of things.

  • that is really really nice...need to get an ipad bad lol
