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.

Husserl2 Mocha Edition by Yofiel is a Virtual Instrument Audio Plugin and a Standalone Application for Windows. It functions as a Rack Extension Plugin and a Standalone Application. It supports ReWire.

OS-251_screenshot

OS-251 is a pure digital lo-fi synthesizer plugin for Mac, Windows and Linux
OS-251 is a “JUNO” style digital subtractive synthesizer with a simple yet powerful DSP algorithm. Unlike other plugins that use analogue simulation, OS-251 uses digital algorithms to give warm, lo-fi sounds. The design of the oscillators and the selection of parameters were influenced by the JUNO-106, making it easier to express a thicker, chunkier sound.

The oscillator has alias noise (specific to digital signal processing) famous on classic samplers like E-mu SP-12 which adds lo-fi feeling to the sound. You can enjoy the powerful sound at modern sampling rates with your DAW.

Easy to use
Tired of overwhelming synthesizers with hundreds of parameters and presets? Then OS-251 is for you! OS-251 is equipped with only carefully selected parameters, allowing musicians to concentrate on music production. You can see every parameter at once, so you can have a stress-free experience. Because the number of the parameters is limited, you can create the desired sounds yourself quickly and you don’t have to spend your precious time choosing presets.

Key features
• Up to 10 voices of polyphony
• Oscillators (Sin, Square, Saw), with Shape parameter
• Square sub oscillator
• Noise oscillator
• Biquad low-pass filter (LPF) with Frequency and Resonance parameters
• Biquad high-pass filter (HPF) with Frequency parameter
• Envelope generator which can control LPF and amplitude
• Low-frequency oscillator (LFO) which can control LPF, amplitude, and Shape parameter
• LFO sync
• Chorus
• Flexible pitch controls (pitch bend width, octave, semitone, fine tuning)

Alphatron SE by HG Fortune[win, VSTI, x86] 0 (0)

AlphatronSE_3

Alphatron is a hybrid analog / digital oscillators synthesizer.

Alphatron is not just a simple VA synthesizer instead in using a 3rd oscillator with digital waves (quite similar to an Ensoniq ESQ-1 / SQ 80 from the late 1980ies) it does offer a lot more sonic potential. Also this 3 rd oscillator serves as sync master for oscillator 2 thus creating a lot more sonic flavours. Amplitude Modulation has got it’s dedicated adjustable output and uses oscillator 2 as main source being modulated either by osc. 1 or 3. Oscillator 1 is a polywave oscillator with up to 5 additional waves, so you might have something like Super Saw(tm), Super Pulse, Super Ramp etc.

  • 1 VA Oscillator with up to 6 poly waves for Saw, Ramp, Sine, Tri, and Pulse.
  • 1 VA Oscillator with single waves as above plus white and pink noise, Sync slave.
  • 1 Sample Oscillator with fairly typical digital waves with different hamonic content, Sync master.
  • 1 Amplitude Modulation with dedicated output.
  • 1 24 dB resonant Low Pass filter with dedicated ADSR EG, 4 mixable mod sources.
  • 1 VCA EG.
  • Both EG have 3 modes: exponential, reverse exponential, and linear; and optional control for Attack and Decay by velocity.
  • 1 Booster or Enciter selectable.
  • 1 Mystify with three selctable types (Brite, Soft, Dark).
  • 1 bpm synced Delay with adjustable Offset controlley manually or by modsource, Pan.
  • 1 Bass Boost.
  • 1 Pan for undelayed signal.
  • 1 small Reverb for adding some nice flavour.
  • 1 Saturator.
  • 1 main Volume.
  • 3 x LFO, 1 x Duo LFO (with two waves and phase control for 2nd wave), 1 x S&H.
  • 1 Pitch LFO with option to speed up or down the LFO speed controlled by Modwheel or Aftertouch.
  • 3 Lazy buttons.

Zebralette: easy spectral synth
Zebralette is our version of a Trojan horse. A free synthesizer and an introduction to Zebra2’s fantastic oscillators. Perhaps it will persuade you to try Zebra2 and upgrade. If one oscillator is this powerful, imagine what you can achieve with four… and all the other great features available in Zebra2.

Features

• A single Zebra2 oscillator with a 16-slot waveset. Read more below

• Polyphonic (up to 16 voices), monophonic and legato modes
• Stereo VCA with pan and volume modulation
• VCA oscillator stacking with adjustable stereo width: single, dual, quad and eleven modes
• ADSR envelope with fall/rise (sustain slope) and velocity controls
• Modulation options including: modwheel, velocity, pressure, breath, key follow, gate and more
• 2 LFOs: one global, one per voice

• Scalable UI from 70% to 200%
• NEW in v2.9.3: Support for Oddsound MTS-ESP

What is a Zebralette?

-ette: an English suffix indicating a diminutive form
Zebralette is an introduction to Zebra2’s powerful oscillators. Zebra2 can seem overwhelming at first glance, so we stripped it down to a single oscillator plus a few other features and created Zebralette, the little Zebra. Once you master Zebralette you can move up to Zebra2 with confidence. And your presets can come with you, as Zebralette presets can be opened in Zebra2.

But more than a teaching tool, Zebralette is an incredible sounding synth in its own right. Surrounding Zebra’s spectral oscillator with a few core modulation options and effects make Zebralette highly capable. With unsion options (think supersaw, but Zebralette is not limited to saw waves, so we refer to it as superwave), 16 voice polyphony and two different envelopes, you have everything needed to create some marvellously complex sounds.

Diminutive? Yes. Powerful? Yes.

Zebra oscillator
One oscillator may not seem like enough for a synthesizer, but Zebra2 oscillators are rather powerful and clever.

It resembles many other oscillators you may have used. You can choose a waveset from the included library, or use the waveform editor to draw your own shapes. Here is where things start to get interesting: The Waveform Editor manages up to 16 different waves and lets you rearrange, duplicate and morph between individual waves. Use one of modulation sources and the WaveWarp control to scan through the 16 waves and create unusual, dynamic sounds.

There are four drawing modes: GeoMorph, SpectroMorph, GeoBlend, SpectroBlend, each offering a different approach to creating and manipulating waveforms.

Using the two Geo modes you draw the waveform shape using up to 32 points, while the Spectro modes let you create the harmonic spectrum over 128 columns. When using WaveWarp to scan through the waveset, Morph alters the waveform, whereas Blend blends (crossfades) between adjacent waves.
