PVCX is a MacOS X wrapper for Paul Koonce’s PVC package, featuring 26 instruments. PVCX attempts to make the PVC package easier to use by providing a GUI, contextual help for each parameter, automatic input and output conversion to and from WAV and AIFF, and a preview and delete feature allowing you to quickly preview the soundfile you’ve just created and throw it away if you don’t like it, to cut down on Finder clutter.

Currently, PVCX is in public beta. In a project of PVCX’s size there are bound to be some bugs, so in this stage it is available for download and usage.

Additionally, help is needed to fill in some of the help for the various parameters in the PVCX instruments. Every instrument has help for each text field, in addition to online help accessible here.

For help using PVCX, visit the help page.

OS Required: MacOS 10.2.8 or later

Waveform Software the moniker I made up for the work I did years ago mostly while at the University of Richmond dealing with audio/music. At this point it's all legacy though most of the apps do still work. I keep this site up so that the apps and their docs are still available for download. As for myself, nowadays I do web development.
