Messiah 2.2 was coded by Chris Kerry. It comes in win 32/64bit. There is no Mac version.

It will perform well both as a live and studio instrument. It responds well to aftertouch and the mod wheel is very important when playing the Messiah synth. It has low cpu and expanded arpeggiator section that makes it a great production tool.

Messiah v2.2

Win 32 and 64 bit

Demo with audio dropouts



P5 filter modelled after Prophet5 rev3. This is how it matches the prophets cutoff knob: (First prophet5, then messiah2)

5V = 4.9V



Messiah design is inspired by Prophet5.

But instead of saw, tri and pulse oscillators it has 3 innovative oscillators:

- Morph oscillator with 4 waveforms.

- Unison oscillator with 7 voices (and you can put this oscillator into 8 voice unison for 56 voices).

- Flexi oscillator that consist of 2 seperate waves that can perform PWM, ring mod. and phase distortion with very low CPU.

Flexi oscillator modes:

mode function PWM
Dual A+B Addition Phase modulation
Dual A-B Subtraction Phase modulation
Ring depth Ring modulation Ring modulation depth
Ring-width+A Ring modulation Phase width/gab between waves
Phaze dist wave Phase distortion Phase distortion depth
Phase dist envA Envelope distorts the phase of wave A Depth of phase modulation
Phase dist envB Envelope directly controls the phase of wave A Phase mod of wave A
Envelope Only envelope is output X
Ext.indexing PWM controls the phase of wave A PWM controls the phase of wave A

You can set the pitch of wave B with the "WaveB/env.offset" knob.

The synth has a 16 step gate with controls for pitch, cutoff and harmonics (overtones) for all 16 steps.

Max number of oscillators stacked in unison mode: 32 from the morph and flexi oscillators + 56 from the unsion oscillator. Total: 88 oscillators.

Polyphony: 8 voices.

Messiah is a VST-instrument.
