IMP-OSC-TOR - Free Bass Vst

This is a small and quite simple freeware synth with fairly low CPU-usage designed by NekroBat using Outsim Synth|Maker. Despite its simple design and appearance it is capable of creating many types of sounds, especially bass-sounds (for which it was intended).

By the way, The name has nothing to do with any other synth with IMP-OSC in its name, it is only a name I chose for this one (I somehow just like the word "Osc" being fused into my synths names).

Features:

2 Oscillators with individual detuners. The Oscillators sports 5 waveforms (Saw,Saw-Square,Square,Square-Ramp,Ramp). Osc 1 can modulate Osc 2 in various ways (Phaze, Freq, Ring and Amplitude modulation). It can also perform Filter-Fm. Osc 2 can be synced to Osc 1. Both Oscillators have Phaze- and Pwm-knobs for such modulation (which can also be modulated with the LFO:s)

1 Multi-mode Filter with lots of Filter-types. The Filters Cut-off can be modulated by the dedicated ADSR-envelope, the mod-wheel, the LFO:s or Osc 1.

2 ADSR-envelopes. One controlling the Filter-cutoff and the other the synths Amplitude.

2 Multi-mode LFO:s. They have each 5 waveforms (Sine,Saw,Triangle,Square and Ramp) and have 2 Speed-selections (slow,Fast) or Step-select.They can be set to be free-running or to restart.The LFO:s are BPM-controlled via the preset-manager* and have many destination possibilities (and also the choice of controlling 2 at the same time if you want).

2 Effects (Delay, Chorus). The Delay has 2 types (Ping-pong, Echo) and the Chorus can be used as a flanger via the Feed-knob.

20 Presets of sounds + 1 Init-patch. In the preset-manager you will find a voice-selector for up to 8-voices of polyphony. If only 1 voice is selected then the Portamento knob will be activated next to the Main-out knob. In the preset-manager you can also alter the BPM and

the pitch-bend amount by retyping in a new value. Of course you can also find a file-selector

which is used to Load or Save your own presets (the preset-name can also be retyped by clicking

the current name). * (Please note this: When you change the BPM it is a good thing to tweak the LFO:s speed-knobs and then tweak it back to your chosen speed for the change to take effect.)

Also note that the synth can be played using the QWERTY-keyboard.

The Dreammachine - Free Hybrid Vsti

The concept of The Dreammachine is based on three synth layers with slow wave sequencing and sound modulations.

Version 3 of The Dreammachine has gone polyphonic now and can be used as a synth too, so there are three basic ways to play the machine:
Using the inbuilt Note sequencer and, if you like, play along.
Hold a note and if you like play along or edit.
Play the machine as 16-voice synthesizer with max. 6 oscs on one key.

In addition you can manually advance each part using MIDI keys/notes #24, #26, #28 and #29 plus #35 to advance synth parts simultaneously. As the Note sequencer is hard-linked to the Bottom/Low Part this one will be advanced too.

There are three parts: Bottom/Low (or Bass), Back/Mid (or Pad) and Sparkle/High for three basic layers of sound plus a OneShot part to throw in some additional highlights such as vocal phrases, percussive sounds or Sfx. Each part has got a 16-step sequencer for waveforms to be played in succession with the One Shot part having 32 steps. The Note sequencer has an option to play duophonic by adding a 2nd note (selectable in 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7 semitones up). Also, Back/Mid and Sparkle Parts can be set in semitones from -12 to +12. This provides a very flexible means to set up sophisticated complex sound layers.

For convenience, the wave names are not only displayed at each seq step but also selectable from popup menus showing the names.

ScapesWizard - Free Hybrid Vsti

ScapesWizard is a machine for soundscapes with a very different control concept by triggering different samples assigned to keys via keyboard, or, using Lazy Sequencer to play the sets in sequence, or at random with varying intervals of step lengths.

This is a completely reworked and largely enhanced version to its predecessor offering more dedicated and flexible control in general.

There are two different sound engines: Slow Motion Scapes (Main Slot 1&2), OneShots and Loops (FX, Natural, etc.) (Main Slot 3 & 4). Each slot has got a dedicated sound modifier (color with resonance) plus pan, & delay with two sets of knob settings for most controls. You get 2 x 24 samples (= 2 x 2 octaves) in direct access via keyboard and 2 sets to assign waves to keys with an optional pitch offset of +/- 12 semitones at each slot, plus a further +/- 12 semitones per wave, slot and patch. This makes 96 samples in straight access with a tuning range of max. +/- 2 octaves. Lazy Sequencer's Ghost Mod will move (morph) between the two sets of knob settings and this motion is visible on the GUI by respective knobs in motion. Furthermore nearly every knob has got a selectable mod source. In fact with this machine it is quite important to assemble best matching waves for a project into the wave slots. You can trigger or gate i.e. switch samples with a dedicated tune setting via keyboard (with velocity to control level) which is ideal for live interaction.

There is a kind of keyboard split to trigger a sample of Slot 1 & 2 from C2 to B3 (left side) and Slot 3 & 4 from C4 to B5 (right side). So simply give a key a short push and the resp. sample will play until it's changed by pushing another key in that resp. range; unless you select KeyMode Gate which allows to play a sample as long as a key is held down. Anyway you can play only one sample in each slot at a time. But those four samples played can give already quite a massive sound. There is also an SF Slot Mode supporting SF2 files with stereo samples.

Besides the registered Pro version there is a fully featured demo and a mini free version available.The registered Pro version comes with access to about 1.65 Gigabyte of samples in additional sf2 files.

Kairatune - Free Hybrid Vsti

Kairatune is designed to produce crisp and tight electric sounds for electronic music production.

Kairatune is engineered for the demanding producer who needs to push the sound to extremes without compromising audio quality. Kairatune offers fast and intuitive sound design workflow. The user interface is designed for a musician rather than an engineer and is based on the concept of pitch and beat in contrast to frequency and time. Kairatune lets you travel in the world of beats, notes and intervals instead of the logarithmic mathematics of frequencies and the rarely useful absolute time. Kairatune is not your all-in-one synthesizer. It's designed and engineered to be as powerful and versatile as possible in it's target role as your source for tight bass, unique lead and shiny SFX sounds. At the same time it makes all the effort to be simple enough to use, enabling you to add your personal touch and flavor to the sound and seek for the perfect fit to your mixing preferences.

KXOMNI-600 - Free Hybrid Vsti

Each Layer (the plugin is stereo) is composed of two oscillators: a "Phase Distortion Oscillator" (Pdo) and an "Oscillator" (Osc), the oscillator signal is filtered by a "Multimode Filter", a "Distortion" and a "Feedback". All the modulations are controlled by an envelope generator, the velocity and the keyboard. Then the sound (4 oscillators+2 filters...) is filtered by a stereo VCF (undoubtedly one of the most complete vcf avaliable in freeware) and a VCA. All the modulations of the oscillators can be modulated by a double LFO.

Photon - Free Hybrid Vsti

Photon is a strange hybrid synth with an with an experimental 'warp' engine for creating evolving rythmic sequences, random arpeggios and classic Sample&Hold style arcade wierdness.
2 oscillators with sync and FM

Warp section: The warp is like a sample&hold engine which can affect the pitch of oscillators 1 & 2as well as the filter, but it can also be assigned to trigger any of the envelopes, making it function more like an arpeggiator, allowing for a variety of polyphonic gated rythms. When modulating the pitch, it can be set to snap to note, or free roaming.
Warp alteration can be set to key for having different rythms on each key.

5 envelopes: Standard filter and amp envelopes, plus 2 assignable envlopes as well as a dedicated env for the external audio processor, all of which can be triggered by note on, or by the warp.
3 assignable LFOs with high/low limits
Dual Stereo Delay section
Assignable modwheel and pitchbend

External Audio Processor: Processes external audio through the filter and delay, as well as through the oscillators and FM. It has it's own decay and sustain independant of the amp envelope, which can also be triggered by the warp.
