Ivor Ii


IVOR2 is microtonal subtractive synth for learning about sound synthesis and musical instrument intonation (microtuning and xenharmonics).

IVOR2 embodies a design philosophy of simplicity for microtonal music sound-design:

  • A knob-less design primarily featuring slider controls, which enables intuitive direct control with a computer mouse.
  • A dedicated control signal system mapped to the most important synthesis functions.
  • Settings are made by typing values into fields, dropdown lists, left-and-right arrows, switches and sliders.
  • Enables musicians to specify precise microtonal pitch-bend settings.
  • Features arbitrary microtonal oscillator transposition settings.
  • MIDI-CC modulation of harmonics enables dynamically playing harmonics of the fundamental pitch.
  • 2 Oscillators with 22 Waveforms.
  • Microtonal, Cents-Based Oscillator Transposition.
  • Per-Oscillator Analog Pitch Drift Emulator.
  • Phase & Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) Range Sliders.
  • 9 dedicated Modulation Generators (MOD-GEN), featuring an ADSR and Graphic Envelope Generator, and an LFO that can be switched to run at Audio-Rate, which are for modulating Phase (FM), Pulse-Width, XFM, Pitch, Filters and Amplitude (VCA).
  • MIDI-CC-to-Harmonics Modulation enables oscillators to dynamically sound harmonics of the fundamental pitch.
  • Oscillator Mixer for setting relative oscillator volumes, Cross-Fade Modulation (XFM) and Ring Modulator (RM).
  • Cross-Fade Modulation (XFM) Mode with six directional options for cross-fading between the two oscillators, including Sum (XFM bypass).
  • Pre-Filter Saturation Stage with 20 Saturation Types.
  • 2 Independent Filters with Six Filter Types: LP4, LP2, HPF, BPF, BRF, APF.
  • 1 and 2 Stage Filter Cascade.
  • Parallel and serial order routing.
  • Unipolar and Bipolar Filter Modulation Modes.
  • Full controller MIDI Pitch Microtuning with MTS (MIDI Tuning Standard).
  • MTS support for both Single Note and Bulk Dump: Loads MTS microtuning format files internally and receives MTS externally.
  • Patch (per-patch) and Global Microtuning (static microtuning for all patches).
  • Microtunings can be loaded from any directory on hard drives or storage devices connected to the PC.
  • Partials file loader for patch-level partial retuning of MOD-GEN Audio-Rate Oscillators.
  • Modulation Effects include Chorus and two Phaser types.
  • MIDI: 12 Note Polyphonic, Monophonic Legato Mode, Monophonic Portamento, Microtonal Pitch Bend, Vibrato.
  • Ensemble: Tone Filters, Stereo Ensemble.
  • Delay: Stereo Delay effect.
  • 118 Factory Patches by Xen-Arts and Sevish.
  • 148 MTS Microtunings.
  • 91 Partials TXT Files for Audio-Rate Oscillator Modulation.
  • Instruction Manual.
