What? Shortcircuit is open source? Well yes, but there are big big caveats. Right now there are no downloadable assets you can get to play music, and there is no runnable open source Shortcircuit plugin. We estimate this will be the case for much of 2021, and maybe indefinitely. You may never be able to run an open source Shortcircuit. Might just be too much work. But if you are dev you can help!

What was Shortcurcuit?
Shortcircuit was created as a reaction against the ongoing trend where software samplers are being designed with the primary intent of library playback.

It is intended for people who, like us, consider a sampler to be a musical instrument in its own right, and not just a way to emulate other instruments. It has been a very high priority to make sure that adding and editing individual samples is as fast and logical as possible.

The sample hierarchy in shortcircuit allow you to place samples directly at the highest level of the multi, without having to deal with instrument hierarchies and patches. Want to add a sample to your song? Just drag & drop the sample into shortcircuit and you’re ready to go. Samples can be put in groups for multi-sampling and kit-building, but the complexity is only there when you need it

Sound quality is of highest concern, and shortcircuit uses very high-quality interpolation to ensure that your samples sound as good as the source material, regardless of the pitch you play them at. All filters & effects are calculated at the precision required for them to sound the way intended and oversampling are used when required to prevent aliasing.

Shortcircuit was designed to sound great, all other concerns have been secondary. But don’t take our word for it, download ‘shortcircuit free’ and find out for yourself.

Each voice in shortcircuit features two filter-slots, and the selection isn’t limited to the traditional pick. In addition to the regular lowpass/highpass/bandpass/notch & peak-filters and variations thereof there is an array of filter algorithms (not strictly filters in the traditional sense, but called so because of their location in the audio path) including distortion, parametric/graphic/morphing equalizers,bit-reduction/decimation, gating, limiting, slew-rate distortion, ring-modulation, frequency shifting and phase-modulation (better known as FM). The selection even includes analog-style oscillators that you can mix with the sample.

Surge XT 1.0.0 Windows/MacOS/LiNUX [FREE] 0 (0)

1642595279_272144358_1728852387324138_3519713107910324472_n

Over 2021, after the succesful release of Surge 1.9, the Surge Synth team undertook an effort to rebuild Surge in JUCE and add a variety of features. This project resulted in the new version of Surge, called ‘Surge XT’.
SYNTH SPECIFICATIONS
GENERAL
Synthesis method: Subtractive hybrid

Each patch contain two scenes which are separate instances of the entire synthesis engine (except effects) that can be used to create layered or split patches.

Quick category-based patch browser with textual search and favorites

Runs on a variety of operating systems, plugin formats, and architectures

FACTORY SOUNDS
2779 patches

614 wavetables

OSCILLATORS
3 oscillators per scene, with 12 versatile oscillator algorithms: Classic, Modern, Wavetable, Window, Sine, FM2, FM3, String, Twist, Alias, S&H Noise and Audio Input.

Classic oscillator is a morphable pulse/saw/dual saw oscillator with a sub-oscillator and hard sync.

Modern oscillator is a mixable saw/pulse/triangle oscillator with an optional sub-oscillator mode for triangle (which can also change to sine or square) and hard sync.

FM2/FM3 oscillators consist of a carrier and 2 or 3 modulators and various options.

String oscillator uses two filtered waveguides to emulate plucked or bowed string sounds.

Twist oscillator is based on a very famous Eurorack macro oscillator, and it offers a myriad of synthesis options in a very simple and quick way.

Most algorithms (except FM2, FM3, Twist and Audio Input) offer up to 16-voice unison at the oscillator level.

Oscillator FM in 3 different configurations and ring modulation between oscillators 1-2 and 2-3.

Most oscillator algorithms (except FM2, FM3, Sine and Alias) are strictly band-limited, yet still cover the entire audible spectrum, delivering a clear, punchy and clean sound.

Noise generator with variable spectrum (available directly in the oscillator mixer).

FILTER BLOCK
Two filter units in 8 different configurations.

Feedback loop available in 7 of those configurations.

Available filter algorithms: Lowpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Legacy Ladder Lowpass (6-24 dB/oct), Vintage Ladder Lowpass (2 variations, each with and without gain compensation), Highpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Bandpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Notch (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 2 variations), Allpass (3 variations), Comb (positive and negative), S&H.

Open-source additions to our filter algorithms include: K35 and Diode Ladder filter types from Odin 2 synthesizer, 12 and 24 dB/oct multimode filters from OB-Xd, and weird but fascinating Cutoff Warp, Resonance Warp and Tri-Pole filters by Jatin Chowdhury!

Filters can self-oscillate (with excitation) and respond amazingly fast to cutoff frequency changes.

Waveshaper (43 shapes).

MODULATION
12 LFO units available, 6 are per voice and 6 are global for the whole scene.

DAHDSR envelope generators on every LFO.

LFO shapes consist of 7 deformable LFO waveforms, step sequencer, a fully-fledged multi-segment envelope generator (MSEG) with various curves and up to 128 nodes, and last but not the least – a formula modulator which utilizes Lua scripting language to provide completely custom modulator output.

Voice LFOs allow envelope retriggering in step sequencer mode.

Extremely fast and flexible modulation routing. Almost every continuous parameter can be modulated!

EFFECTS
16 effect units arranged as 4 inserts per scene, 4 sends and 4 master effects.

27 effect algorithms:

FILTERING:
3-band fully parametric EQ
11-band graphic EQ
Exciter
Resonator

DISTORTION:
CHOW
Distortion

dualReverseDelay by SaschArt[Donationware] 5 (1)

dual_reverse_delay_ping_pong_pan_lowpass_stereo_enhanced+51_01

dualReverseDelay it’s a dual plugin both as two sets of knobs (one per channel) and as two directions: reverse and forward.

Unique and original delay.

Features:

  • Two sets of knobs (one per channel) .
  • Stereo enhanced by offset.
  • Button to change the direction of delay: reverse and forward.
  • Toggle Lowpass filter from left to right – nice effect, can balance frequencies on stereo channels.
  • Toggle direction of delay from reverse to forward – unique feature on the delay area. This can produce amazing effects.
  • Host sync delay rate and free time rate.
  • Rich rates: triplet and dotted.
  • Ping pong made by offsets.

Tips:

  • The delay start from the beginning of the project but on reverse cycles. So, the end of the delay it’s exactly on the delay rate set. But if your audio input is not on rate set in the delay rate you must take care that the cycles runs in the reverse way, this result a dynamic and complicated delay time relative by offset. Better and easy way it’s to use audio input on the delay rate.
  • Great effects are obtained if we set the same offset on the left and right, the forward direction on one channel and on the other reverse then activate Toggle for direction. So we’re going to have a delay reverse on one channel, when it’s over, it’s going to start delay forward on the other channel and to the next rate going to play vice versa on the two channels.
  • The toggle buttons for frequency and direction only make sense if there are different left-right settings. If we have the same left-right settings for frequency respectively direction these buttons have no effect.
  • Remove donate button: donate minimum 5 euro then insert donate key received by email.
  • Value input by key: over the knob and right click, insert value by key then hit enter.
  • Set default value: double click on the knob.

Requirements:
DAW (VST host), Windows 32/64-bits or MacOS VST and AU.

Harmonus by LostIn70s 0 (0)

harmonus1

harmonus2

Originally, this organ was inspired by a Magnus Model 300 Harmonium / organ (a brand of the “Magnus Harmonica Corporation”) from our collection in perfect condition. It delivers a warm and unique sound between an accordion and a harmonica. The samples have been meticulously captured in stereo and denoised in order to render all the naturalness of the original organ without the noise of the mechanical fan.

Features:

  • Quality stereo capture.
  • Mode “one finger chord” on the left keyboard or a dedicated channel: one finger for a major chord two for a minor chord.
  • The original 2 octaves have been extended to a full 88 keyboard.
  • Built-in effects: Reverb, Chorus, Tremolo, EQ.
