- Version: 1.0.4
J74 Venus6 is a six voice Poly-Multi Synthesizer for Ableton Live (Max for Live). It can be used as a six voice polyphonic synthesizer (one timbre, six voices), as six independent monophonic synthesizers or as a six voice stacked monophonic synthesizer. The way voices, sequencer lines and clock are used is configurable and semi-modular. The internal sequencer of Venus6 (and of its MIDI companion VenusSEQ, also part of the package) is capable of poly-rhythmic and poly-metric sequencing due to the internal modular clock routing and clock division system.
J74 Venus6 has been built echoing the behaviour of DCO synthesizer’s of the 80’s: its six (virtual) voice boards have been created with slight tolerance differences (subtle, but still present in DCO systems of the time) and coupled with a voice allocation system which enhances this dynamics. The synthesizer has an internal chorus, which also echoes the chorus implementations of the same era. The same chorus is also provided as a separate audio effect, as part of the same package. Venus6 comes with 250+ presets, which range from pads to arpeggio, from bass-sequences to leads.
