Apricot is a free compact hybrid synthesizer with a massive sound.
It is currently in public beta.
2 main oscillators, with 6 different subtractive waveforms, modulatable phase offset and panorama, with unison modeled off the JP8000’s supersaw. There is also an additional third oscillator, with less parameters, intended for use as a sub-oscillator.
Sample layer. There are currently 44 factory samples, ranging across 10 categories. The user is also able to import their own samples.
2 mod envs and 2 LFOs, each with 2 dedicated modulation slots. There is also a modulation matrix with 8 additional modulation slots, for a total of 16. There are over 70 modulation destinations, and 10 modulation sources.
5 effects: reverb (with 4 selectable algorithms), ping-pong delay, stereo phaser, parameter EQ, and a distortion unit. The distortion contains Light, Soft, Middle and Hard algorithms closely modeled after the Access Virus, to achieve a distinctive asymmetric distortion.
Arpeggiator and sequencer.
Multi-mode filter that can run in low-pass, band-pass or high-pass modes, at 12dB/oct or 24dB/oct. There is a resonance, key track and drive control. The drive can enhanced with a “warm” boost, which mixes in a subtly “inflated” signal.
Streamlined single page user interface with scaling ranging from 100% to 200%.
Over 60 builtin patches in the factory ROM bank, accessible from the patch browser.
Full support for the new CLAP plugin API.
No copy protection or DRM.
The plugin is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit formats for Windows. It is also available for all modern glibc distributions of X11/Linux.
The new CLAP plugin format, including support for polyphonic non-destructive modulation.
Confirmed working in Bitwig 4.3.
The native FL Studio plugin format, including support for slide/glide notes. Requires FL Studio 9 or newer.
