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.

Crio by Solcito Música[win, VSTI, x86] 0 (0)

crio_1_985

Crio is a virtual analog/FM/Ring modulation synthesizer to make arpeggios, bass, solos, leads, FX-style sounds. Its goal is to achieve maximum functionality with minimal controls, to be used at studio or live, with facilities to drastically modify the sounds while playing.

The LFO has special functions for rhythmic uses, such as quantization of waveforms synchronized with tempo. For example, If the user applies tone modulation from the LFO with quantization, the resulting tones are forced to a scale, like an autotuner. An interesting result occurs when quantized noise wave is selected there.

The modulation wheel can be linked to the overall function of the LFO. Therefore, the user must use that wheel to check the importance of the sound modifications that can be done. For example, in certain presets, the player can use the modulation wheel to add automatic tone variations.

Features:

– 1 monophonic oscillator with:
noise generator
3 voices, including sub oscillator.
Frequency modulation (FM)
Ring modulation (RM)

​.

– 1 LFO with functions of wave quantization and tempo synchronization.

– 2 filters: typical state variable filter and comb filter.

– 1 envelope generator.

– 1 amplifier with booster and saturation.

– slide tone control that applies to keyboard and tone modulation from LFO.

– MIDI learn in most of the controls.

SC-3 by Samsara Cycle Audio[win, VSTI3, x64] 0 (0)

Samsara_SC3

SC-3 is a clavinet influenced instrument.

Keys Section: Phase simulates Pickup mixing. Octave can be used to switch between 3 octaves. +Keys introduces a 1 octave higher instrument (this is a subtle effect).

Timbre Section: Tone is used to control the frequency brightness. Timbre Velocity is used to add a level of attack brightness. Experiment between these two controls to introduce various shapes, especially for Twang effect.

Tone Section: Simple cut and boost for overall tone of the instrument.

Shape Section: These controls are used to create various feel to the playing and adjust the envelope of the instrument. The effect of these controls work closely with the Timbre Section.

Amplifier Section: These controls influence the final output of the instrument.
Velocity sensitivity can be increased from less active to more. The distortion control provides a natural saturation to the output.

Mute: This slider simulates a dampen effect on strings.

SPKR-v1.dll by Cybergrunge.net 0 (0)

spkrv1

SPKR-v1.dll is 32-bit windows ONLY Broken Speaker FX / distortion plugin. Designed to emulate blown speakers, malfunctioning stereos and obscure acoustics.

Input is fed into two parallel bandpass filters, and then into a few custom waveshapers (select via “M” mode knob). Before going into waveshaper, DC Offset and Gain can be adjusted. After going through the waveshapers, two more parallel bandpass filters are used, and then “fake stereo” is added via delaying stereo channels, and volume of each filter independently adjustable.

This design comes from the concept of poorly assembled tone circuitry or circuit bent amplification, combined with the effect of broken/blown speakers or speakers with weird frequency response caused by physical conditions. Basically is a circuit-bendable amplifier. This can mangle sound really intensely to almost unrecognizable, or add subtler excitation, saturation or filtering.

Comes with a few built in presets. Made with synthedit, with the blessings of Jeff himself. Thanks Jeff :). x86

What exactly is Origin?
Origin is a vintage/lofi plugin created to make your samples sound like they’re straight from an old tape machine.

The main knob is a resampler/bitcrusher with two special filters to make your samples sound “underwater” (this effect can often be heard in Drake songs)

The other four knobs are Tape Saturation, Noise, Movement, and Chorus. Using these 5 powerful controls you can instantly give your samples a vintage vibe.

*Origin is 64 bit only

What’s under the hood of Origin?
Origin was built based on vintage gear to give the most realistic analog sound.

The “Movement” knob (or Wow/Flutter) has a special mode that uses a randomizer algorithm to create realistic tape pitch wobbles.

We also replicated the famous Juno 106 chorus sound with the two classic slow and fast chorus modes.

Finally, the tape saturation modes are modeled from vintage tape machines. Using these in tandem with the noise knob and Resampler, you will get an undeniable vintage tone to your sounds.

How does the Resampler engine work?
The core of Origin is its resampler, which changes the sample rate of your running audio in real-time. However, reducing the sample rate alone will produce bitcrusher-style artifacts called “images.” In many cases, these aren’t desirable. Removing these images using Origin’s special filters results in an effect similar to a brick-wall lowpass filter, but with an altogether different sonic character.

Rather than turning down the cutoff on a lowpass filter to cut high frequencies, Origin mathematically forbids high frequencies from existing above the resampler cutoff frequency.

*This effect is the famous “underwater” effect you hear on a lot of melodies in Drake songs.

Electron EQ by ViatorDSP 0 (0)

Screen Shot 2021-07-26 at 8.53.45 PM

Electron EQ is a tube equalizer inspired by popular EQ’s that have been in top studios for decades.

This bad boy is full of cool features, like 4x oversampling, mid/side processing, and meticulous tube-overdrive circuit emulation.

  • Low Boost – Low shelf filter of original design controlled by the “freq” dial near it from 22 Hz to 300 Hz by 0 dB to +10 dB.
  • Low Atten – Low cut filter just above the Low Boost filter. It helps define and fatten the low-end, by 0 dB to -10 dB.
  • High Boost – High shelf filter of original design controlled by the “freq” dial near it from 1000 Hz to 16000 Hz by 0 dB to +10 dB.
  • High Atten – High cut filter just above the High Boost filter. It helps define and round off the high-end, by 0 dB to -10 dB.
  • Bandwidth – Controls the “Q” factor, or bandwidth of the low and high filters, 0 being the most narrow and +10 being the widest.
  • LP – Low-pass filter from 20000 Hz to 3000 Hz.
  • Drive – Controls the drive parameter for a meticulously modeled tube circuit with parallel processing to subtly dial in tube saturation. When the drive slider is at 0 dB, the processing turns off to save CPU usage when the effect is not desired.
  • Trim – Output volume control.
  • EQ In/Out – Toggles the EQ processing on or off without resetting the current state of the filter’s boost and atten settings.
  • OS – Toggles 4x oversampling on or off. Toggling oversampling on will set the LP filter to 19000 Hz if it is currently set to 20000 Hz. This takes care of some sampling rate math and lets you hear the high end difference. It would be best to leave the LP filter lower than 19000 while oversampling is on.
  • Stereo Mode – This allows you to choose between mid/side/left/right/stereo processing. Use this to remove low end from the sides or add brightness to the sides, whatever cool mid/side/left/right/stereo processing you like to do! This effect will of course perform the best on a stereo source.
  • Setting a filter to 0 dB will turn off processing to save CPU for unused filters.
  • The plugin will save it’s window size when you hit save in your DAW and it will recall the size on the next startup.
