Viking Synth..... does it have key velocity?

I just discovered Viking synth. it’s such a cool synth. but i can seem to figure out note velocity. It seems like the keys are at 127 or 0. there’s no in-between. please let me know if there is a setting i need to change.

  • It depends on how the patch is programmed. It's possible to use velocity as one of the 'Shapers' for modulation.

  • oh in the mod page? thanks Samu i’ll have to dig into it some more. I just grabbed this synth this morning and i’m loving so far. > @Samu said:

  • Such a good synth

  • Using Viking with Rozeta LFO or the ApeMatrix modulation mayhem opens up quite a lot of possibilities :)

  • Is there something that distinguishes Viking from Moog Model D or OdysseI or Zeeon if you have those?

    I use both — Model D is a beast of different proportions, however Viking is also an exceptionally good sounding synthesizer with its own voice. I use Model D for memorable or distinctive ‘in your face’ sounds and Viking primarily for utility and texture. Both are more than capable of both. In this video the main lead (comes in around 2:50) is Model D and the bass synth throughout the track is Viking:

    It has it's own 'sound' is the only way I can describe it.
    Here's an old vid from @thesoundtestroom

  • It's also pretty low on CPU and has a nice interface for sound design. It's the synth I tend to turn to if I want to quickly layer something for example, or just want to get a sound quickly (NFM is good for this too).

    I don’t have Zeeon, but I have the others along with model 15 and DRC.

    Viking has a continuously variable waveform, adjustable number of poles (1 - 4). In addition to the common soft clipping filter, it has three overdrive filter modes. Osc are free running and have a variable drift control.

    Though it’s designed to be Moog-like, to my ears it’s reminiscent of the Roland SH series as well. A fun, easy to use, good sounding synthesiser.
