Nero is a mono synthesizer for bass, lead and sequenced sounds.
Its strength is in the OSC section which features two internally synced oscillators capable of creating, thanks also to the modulation options, TB alike sounds, evolving drones fat basses and detuned lead sounds in a breeze. The filter section features a zero delay feedback filter and the audio engine has been tweaked to provide a great impact on the low frequencies.
The “Pattern Sequencer” is another key feature and a great source of inspiration for the modern producer: it features 64 original sequences that can be used as they are or, by editing the play options (play mode, length, etc), it’s possible to create totally new bass/seq lines.
Created in 2005 and still going strong. Podolski is a free, straightforward, CPU-efficient virtual analogue synthesizer. One oscillator, one filter, one envelope and an arpeggiator / sequencer. Simple, but with a few tricks up its sleeve. Create high quality sounds with ease.

NKS-readyPodolski is Native Instruments NKS-ready and compatible with Maschine and Komplete Kontrol hardware.
Changelog: Podolski 1.2.2 (revision 9724) Improvements: • Mac installer notarized (Catalina) • NKS compatible • Windows installer improvements • UTF-8 support for installation paths • Improved VST3 implementation • New Preset Browser • Factory presets have been tagged • Drag & drop between browser and system file windows • Improved GUI response time on some Macs (sluggish GUI) • Windows UI performance improved (less CPU load with open GUI) • Mac installer improved to prevent permission issues • User defined MIDI CC sources replace expression and breath • Mouseover shows parameter values in Data Display • Plugin format and OS info shown next to revision number • Init preset can be loaded from Data Display (for Win users: also works via right-click) • Increased maximum number of installed skins from 10 to 20 • Improved handling of 14-bit MIDI CC assignment • Sustain pedal now working according to standard (0-63 = off, 64-127 = on) Fixed Bugs: • Fixed an issue with dialogs appearing transparent in Cubase 10.5 and Logic • Various small fixes and improvements
Acid Robot is not a Swiss Army tool, a simple synth, but can produce nice sounds and rhythmic patterns.
It has a key tracking, multi-lane sequencer with step based smoothing, 2 oscillators with PWM on ALL waveforms (tri-saw-pulse), distortion, a multi-mode filter, LFO and envelope modulations on the main parameters, a stereo delay, randomization, MIDI learn, GUI resize,…
If the sequencer is bypassed, the modulation part is different and you can use it as a normal synth. If the seq is on, each step retriggers the decay envelopes and the gate time follows the decay time – adjustable with the D/R knob. Added a simple stereo delay to it. The L-R time ratio is adjustable from 2/3 to 3/2. The max feedback is 1, where it became a short time “looper”. The shortest times with higher feedback can add metallic timbres to the sound.
I created my patches in SaviHost, but there was a small issue with the saving. The best way was: saved the created preset to the fxb and txt banks, then closed and re-opened SaviHost. This way the saving/loading was always successful. If you can live with it, create your own patterns and sounds.

5 Soundbanks (40 Sounds) für den RMI Harmonic Synthesizer von Tom Saouz
Das Original (RockyMoutainsInstruments HarmonicSynthesizer) von 1974 war sehr selten. Nur 250 Stück wurden je produziert und einsame 4 Stück insgesamt in Europa verkauft.
Bekannteste User waren u.a. Jean-Michael Jarre oder Klaus Schulze, Aphex Twin……
Das RMI Harmonic VSTi ist eine gelungene Emulation und kann durchaus einige der spezifischen Sounds des Originals wiedergeben. Es verfügt jedoch über u. a. keinen Arpeggiator, Sequencer, Portamento und ist nicht in Mono.
In den Soundbänken findest Du einige “gewaltige” Additiv-Padsounds, Vocal-artiges, einige Keyboard- und Glockenklänge, sehr gute Orgeln, einige SFX, Additive Soloklänge, Sequenzer-Stoff und so einige Retroklänge der 70er Ära.
Zu entpacken sind 5 Fxb-Bänke mit jeweils 8 Sounds (40 Sounds insgesamt).
5 Soundbanks (total amount of 40 Patches) for the RMI Harmonic Vsti by Tom Saouz
The Original was a very rare (only 4 units were sold) and special Synthesizer – a real gem in Additive Synthesis.
It was used by Jean-Michel Jarre and Klaus Schulze, for example.
The RMI Harmonic VSTi is an accurate emulation and could produce some of the original sounds (without the original sequencer).
In my soundbanks you can find huge additive pads, Vocalsounds, some Keys and Bells, many Sequencer-Food, some SFX, for sure really good organs, Additive Leads and a lot of retrosounds from the 70s.
There are 5 banks (8 sounds pro bank) with a total amount of 40 Patches.
Unbedingt vorher mal ins Sounddemo lauschen – somit, was man mit den Klängen anstellen kann. Im Demo verwendet wurden ausschließlich Klänge aus den Soundbänken (außer den Drums) und wurden eingespielt ohne Verwendung externer Effecte (außer einem Sequencer).
Have a good listen to this sounddemo – it shows, what these sounds are made for. Only sounds from the banks were used in this demo (except the drums) and played without the use of external effects (except a sequencer).
For download the banks you have to register in the forum – it´s free!
AUXTURE is a unique exploratory sampler and sequencer (AUX-Seq) which enables the user to manipulate and record single samples or entire folders of samples through gesture, randomness and modulation. Unexpected results are achieved via the audio exploration of single samples or entire folders through gestures, randomness and modulation. The software comes bundled with a ‘Slices’ folder containing 115 free to use samples.
AUXTURE processes your loaded samples across a myriad of random parameters. The results open up a unique portrayal of your sound.
When AUXTURE receives a note, it applies an exploratory set of processes resulting in unique outputs based on unexpected outcomes or happy accidents applied to your sample set.
It chooses a random sample from its memory according to a freely settable probability. It then plays it back with a rate proportional to the pitch.
Some parameters related to sample playback are directly settable, such as loop mode, pitch shift and detunes, while others are based on chance, such as choosing another sample or reverse playback.
A random delay of a few milliseconds allows a rapid and unpredictable timbre variation, while frequency and ring modulations alter the sample more heavily. For a subsequent smoothing of the sound and to ensure complete processing there are digital distortion, delay, a weird reverb and two second order filters.
Features: Multi-effect software module featuring:
▪ ADSR Envelope
▪ Timbric Delay
▪ Frequency Modulation
▪ Ring Modulation
▪ Redux Distortion
▪ Stereo Delay
▪ Weird reverb
▪ 2 x Second Order Filters with cut-off, resonance and gain controls
▪ Bandpass, Notch and Shelf Filters.
The default playback mode is looping the sample during sustain phase, it’s possible disabling this behaviour. It’s also possible to set a sample change and reverse playback probabilities.
