Koblo Vibra 9000
Software Synth

Derek Johnson and Debbie Poyser explore a well-specified virtual monosynth from newcomers Koblo.

Good stuff seems to come out of Scandinavia: IKEA, The Cardigans, Propellerheads (creators of the superb Rebirth RB338), the Nobel Prize, Pippi Longstocking, Abba, TC Electronic (makers of top-quality signal processors such as the Finaliser and the Fireworx), Hedy Lamarr, The Moomins, Clavia (source of the excellent Nord series of virtual analogue synths), Ingmar Bergman, Ingrid Bergman... and now Vibra 9000.

Danish company Koblo are hoping to add an extra sheen to Scandinavia's hi-tech music reputation with their small family of software synthesizers. Vibra 9000, a monophonic virtual analogue synth, is currently top of the Koblo heap, but the company have ambitious plans for the future. Their two founders, Emil Tin and Max Grønlund, started out by spending three years developing a "visual real-time programming language", called Tokyo. It's Tokyo which has provided the basis for development of the Vibra family of software synths, and the language/operating system itself will be released next year for other developers to use. Other Koblo planned products include drum and percussion synths, sampling and hard disk playback synths, mixing consoles, effects processors, multitrack hard disk recorders, testing and measuring instruments, and step and pattern-based MIDI sequencers -- all in software, of course, and all running within the Tokyo operating system. Meanwhile, Vibra 9000 is in constant development and is currently standing at v1.5.1.

Does anyone have a download of this? The thread of all VSTS has it listed, but I can't find a download
