Calc-U-Synth: $29

AN ODE TO A CLASSIC

An emulation of the Casio VL-Tone, the classic digital calculator/synthesizer hybrid released in the summer of 1979 and manufactured until 1984, Calc-U-Synth delightfully recreates this nearly-forgotten vintage synth.

SPOT-ON EMULATION

Designed to present the full capabilities of the VL-Tone’s programmable features in a more-convenient interface, Calc-U-Synth retains the true character of the instrument, even including a full modelling of the synth's built-in speaker, for a truly authentic tone.

BUILDING BLOCKS

We created Calc-U-Synth using the Reaktor Blocks framework. That means that with the full version of Reaktor, you can incorporate the blocks into your own creations.

ICEBREAKER AUDIO

Calc-U-Synth was created by Icebreaker Audio, the brainchild of Adam Hanley, whose name appears in the credits of many high-profile Kontakt and Reaktor products. He is also responsible for the Kontakt scripting here at Heavyocity, pushing the limits of the platform to bring even our craziest ideas to life.
