K1Ks is an attempt to create a synth with a more analog sound.

Inspired by the sounds of the succesful TV series Stranger Things.

Wow, this synth alone or with a good reverb (Blackhole for me) is just so monstrous, so big. Ok, we have fun fiddling with all the parameters to have its sound but honestly, each original preset is really terrible. Without lying or exaggerating, there are a bunch of "pro" and premium synths that do not come close to the ankle. For me it's 5/5.

This is a 5/5 for me! The sound quality is top-notch and the sonic possibilites and endless! I love that the envelopes and LFOs are assignable to many parameters and the waveforms are super interesting! Not the typical "Sine, Tri, Saw, Square" its kind of "Wavetable-ish" but with interesting timbres! Defently worth downloading and using!

I found the yellow fields beneath the knobs very annoying. You click on those to change the adjustment. Every click a new choice. Why no dropdown menu to see all the available choices at ones? Why can I only use one of the effects at the bottom at the same time? Make no sense at all. There is plenty of synths you use more than one effect at a time. Needs a proper rework.

Very nice and unusual setup! It seems simple at first, but is capable of very diverse sounds, thanks to the many routing options. It deserves a 64bit version!

It keeps breaking, this synth will have a period of audio coming from it or output, then all of a sudden it won't play sound at all and so you have to constantly recopy what you made in it and route it to the channel you had it in. It hurts me to say this, because it's a synth I really like, it's just too damn non functional for it's own good.

Fantastic presets that you can easily use for any type of music. It works perfectly in LMMS (Linux 64). Sometimes the sound seems to be reverberating a bit too much but you can fix it by adjusting the filter unless you need a slightly distorted pitch. I understand why it was inspired by Stranger Things: great job!

How do you make it work in Linux?
