The W-77 concept
The project started in 2006. After a long break, following encouragement from musicians, we updated the W-77 plugin to 64-bit version. This is when the modification panel was added, with which we expanded the capabilities of the synthesizer. The original is a Wersi Bass synth from 1977. Based on our copy, we created the sound and graphic look of the VST version. This is a vintage sounding MONOPHONE BASS / LEAD synth. It has 3 waveforms, bass guitar emulation, and automatic LFO that can also control the filter. Simple ATTACK / DECAY and auto WAH control was given to the original device.
The MODIFICATION panel also has a couple of additional emulations. Such as potentiometer noise, amplifier buzzing, oscillator faults. We can use a deeper filter cut than the original, LFO sync and a fake stereo effect. We also thought it was essential to introduce tilt sensitivity which was not available on the original.
This is how our W-77 Bass / Lead synthesizer was born.
