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!

NoizeClick by Sick Noise Instruments 0 (0)

NoizeClick-2-680x500

NoizeClick is a kick drum synthesizer allowing you to make your own electronic kick quickly & with ease.

Don’t waste time looking for kick samples when you can make your own kick easily and quickly. It is made mostly for psytrance kicks but its possible to make kick for any genre even for hardcore.

NoizeClick is a single oscillator synthesizer and it produces Sine Wave.

CLICK ZONE: In the click zone you design the kick you want. The click zone is a set of complex envelopes that modulate pitch sinewave. You can control Start, Decay, Curve and add BOOST. In the Click zone you have three fields. Click1.Click 2 and Click 3. Each of them controls pitch independently of the other therefore each controls a certain frequency of the wave

FILTER: The filter is simple and enough to peak on your kick. It has low pass, high pass, band pass and band reject. In the Filter you can control CUTOFF, Resonance and Gain.

DISTORTION: Distortion is also simple but very powerful. With more distortion you can add a little texture to the kick as well as make a hardcore kick.In the Distortion you can control DRIVE and SHAPE

 

AMP SECTION: At the lower end of the plug-in is an ADSR envelope, which can be used to control the amplitude of the kick.To control the tail for example, we can adjust the sustain and release. Also it can be contoled volume of output.

Husserl2 Mocha Edition by Yofiel 0 (0)

husserl2Mocha

A 32-voice complex waveset synthesizer with 5D filter,
internal 151×143 modulation matrix, and more

The Mocha Edition enhances Husserl2 with a more soothing, less vibrant interface. Husserl2 continues to aim to be one of the best free synths you can get. It took a couple of years to make, but I am retired and have no need for more money, so it will stay free. This is not a ‘beta buggy’ version to build a customer base before I start selling it. It will stay free. And I do not require registration or email to download it, which apparently is very unusual these days.

Because Husserl2 takes advantage of all the cores available on your machine, it cannot run inside plugin hosts, which only support one core thread per plugin. As a result, this is a standalone app with native, ASIO, and ReWire client drivers for connection to all current standard DAWs. Although the app includes anti-aliased oscillators and a 4x-oversampled filter, for professional applications a sample rate of at least 88kHz is recommended to provide crisp results in the C8 octave, but if you only play to C7 then standard sample rates are sufficient.

Features include:

  • Fully Compiled 64-bit Multithreaded Audio Path, carefully optimized for performance without sacrificing quality.
  • Up to 32 voices with custom LRU voice allocator; base CPU usage ~10%, +1% per playing voice, on 4GHz i7 @44.1kHz sample rate with Windows10 DirectX drivers.
  • 2 Oscillators with dual contour, phase, ring modulation, frequency modulation, oscillator mix, plus gate/osc sync controls. EPTR-antialiased square/pulse and saw/triangle waveforms are followed by 44 wavesets, including filter sweeps, morphs, formants, and harmonic bundles. The dual-axis spline-interpolated wavesets contain 127 tables of 256 sample points for each continuously variable waveform.
  • ‘5d’ SVF Filter with continuously variable cutoff, resonance, 0/2/4 pole mix, LP/BP/HP mix, and 4x-oversampled saturation provides a virtual infinite sound palette.
  • Compressor and limiter with polyphonic and monophonic modes.
  • Internal Modulation Matrix with 143 modulation destinations and 151 sources including:
    • 3 ADSR Envelopes with graphical control of velocity shaping.
    • 3 LFOs: two polyphonic, one monophonic linked to mod wheel; sine/double-sine, square/pulse, saw/tri, stepped, and random with contour shaping, freq mod, amp mod, and sync.
    • Sample and Hold with trigger-level control.
    • XY Pad to mix up to four modulation sources to any modulation destination.
    • 120 Mapped MIDI Controllers, plus bend, modwheel + LFO, note pitch, velocity, and #notes.
  • 50 Microtuning Tables.
  • Preset Manager with simple button controls, preset naming, and bank load/save.
  • Lots of Demo Presets. Notes may be stored and recalled with presets too.
  • MIDI file player built in, with channel selection.
  • MIDI I/O: note on/off, MIDI clock, program change, pitch bend, all 90 panel controls, and standard MIDI controllers such as pedals, etc.
  • Optimized Graphical Display of oscillator waveforms, output waveform, filter curve, and modulation values for most recent voice; velocity display of all active voices.
  • Resizable Panel. Zoom in or out as much as you like. Synth reopens the way you closed it.
  • Interactive Help built in for wavesets, filter characteristics, microtuning tables, and with complete description of all panel controls.
  • Open Source distribution in Cycling74 Max8, if you wish to change it in any way. sacrificing quality.

U-he BeatZille v1.0.2 x64 x86 VST VST3 AU AAX WiN MAC LiNUX [FREE] 0 (0)

uhe-beatzille-screenshot-fullui-1150x881

Beatzille: little monster
Beatzille is a compact version of our monster modular synthesizer Bazille. Although its condensed feature set makes it the ‘little brother’, Beatzille is still an engaging and capable synthesizer. Power and style run in the family. Digital oscillators, analogue-style filter and flexible patching will keep you busy for a good while before thinking about tackling Bazille.

Features:
• Modular architecture
• 2 digital oscillators with simultaneous frequency modulation (FM), phase distortion (PD) and fractal resonance (FR)
• Polyphonic (up to 8 voices), duophonic (split oscillator pitches), legato or retriggered monophonic
• Pitch transpose, drift and glide control
• 1 multimode analogue-style filter with 6 parallel outputs (4× lowpass, bandpass, highpass)
• 2 ADSR envelopes with sustain slope (fall/rise) and 5 trigger modes
• 1 LFO with 3 parallel outputs with various waveforms
• 16-step sequencer with 8 morphable snapshots. 4 output sockets for parallel sequences, envelope triggers and more
• 2 multiplex units for mixing, crossfades, ring modulation or amplitude modulation
• Built-in stereo delay with tape wow, feedback and damping filters
• 1 mapping generator (waveshaper / incrementer)
• Audio-rate signal processors: inverter, rectifier, sample & hold, dual lag generator and quantizer
• White and pink noise generators
• MIDI modulation sources include modwheel, velocity, breath, pressure, key follow, gate and more
• Single-page interface
• Skinnable UI
• Resizable UI from 70% to 200%
• Global preferences page
• MIDI learn overlay and editable MIDI CC list
• Over 160 factory presets
• NEW in v1.0.2: Support for Oddsound MTS-ESP

Small and mighty
Striking the balance between too much and too little, Beatzille is the happy medium. It presents an introduction to modular synthesis and a taste of the power of Bazille without being overwhelming.

Oscillators
Beatzille’s oscillators embrace two digital synthesis methods developed during the 1980s: frequency modulation (FM) and phase distortion (PD). We also added a process we call fractal resonance (Fractalize), which sounds similar to the classic oscillator sync effect when swept.

All three synthesis methods run simultaneously, so you can combine them to create an extensive range of sounds. Beatzille is great at generating weird modular blips and squeaks, but you can even coax soft pads and organic keys from the oscillators—as demonstrated by the factory library. Add modulation for even more sound possibilities.

Filter
The filter is a favourite in the sound designer’s toolkit. Cut frequencies, boost others, add texture and colour. Beatzille’s analogue-style filter complements the digital oscillators, providing warmth and drive. And its self-oscillation capability opens up some intriguing sound design opportunities.

Even with a single filter Beatzille offers plenty of creative horizons. The six parallel outputs (highpass, bandpass and four types of lowpass) with multiple modulation options make it easy to create complex, shifting textures.

Delay
Beatzille has only one built-in effect, but it’s good one: stereo delay with optional host sync. Push your sound around in space with independent delay times and volumes for each channel. Conjure ghostly echoes using tape-like wobble and filtering or set up endless repetitions. Tweak all controls to find the perfect delay.

Release notes:

Special Notes:
• AAX support on Mac removed temporarily (will come back in next update)
• Updated minimum requirements, CPU needs to support SSE4.2 instruction set
• Linux: minimum required glibc version is 2.28 (otherwise plugins won’t show up)
• macOS 32-bit support discontinued

The Windows installer was improved to prevent common installations issues. Please check the suggested installation paths during installation, making sure the update is installed into the same location as the previous version, and all installed plugin formats are being updated.

Envelope triggering via LFO and sequencer was reworked in order to fix multiple bugs in this area. This means some presets might not sound as intended anymore. We therefore recommend to finish ongoing projects before updating to the new version. Please refer to the “Patch Conversion Tips” file to get more info on how to adjust your presets.
