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:

Donationware

Nasca by 2MGT/Metamusic Generative Tools is a Standalone Application for Windows. It functions as a Standalone Application.

Nasca is an standalone tool application for Windows that employs Wavetable / Granular / Sample-based synthesis in two separate and programmable layers each with extensive FX, Modulation Matrix, Chord Sequencer and two Arpeggiators modules which provide the user with maximum control over sound creation.

With the built-in 16steps Chord Sequencer and two Arpeggiators, long evolving ambient and atmospheric sounds can be created. Also, the Sequencer and Arpeggiators allows for more rhythmic based compositions or patches as well. It is possible to create an entire composition just by creating many layers.

Nasca is Free/Donate. The Free version has some limitations. No installation is necessary, and it works without problems in Windows XP and Windows 10 (32/64-bit). (Nasca is 32-bit.).

Nasca is JCS module / Joystick Controlled Synthesizer. Use a Joystick Gamepad (xBox type) to control some of the Nasca parameters in real time, as a controller. This function will allow you to control chords, launch layers A and B separately, adjust the volume and mixing of layers, as well as modulate some parameters in the Mod Matrix.

The following example were done exclusively with Nasca and no additional effects or instruments were used. The track demonstrates the range of possibilities from abstract ambient sound scapes and more traditional synth sounds. Nasca has an extensive range of sound creation that would fit just about any modern genre of electronic music.

This is the Sequencer-Software i made with Flowstone for my Live-Performances. It should run on every Windows-PC and is written to control Midi to CV-Devices like the Polyend Poly. It can Handle two different Devices with 8 Midi-Channels. Maybe you can use it for your own Performances. It is completely free so i dont can give a guarantee for everything. If you have the Flowstone-Software you can edit the source- code-file called FL-Sourcecode in the Zip and change the Sequencer as you like! This Sequencer works extremly stable in performance and Timing I normally work with analog sequencers but a Sequencer with the complete Functions like this Software-Sequencer would take up more space in my room than i have”

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:

Majoris Free by Fanan Team 0 (0)

maj_free_1

Majoris Free is Majoris’es little brother. It’s a unique synth based arranger organ that can enhance creativity and help songwriters and composers to quickly compose new ideas and melodies. It emulates the automatic accompaniment organs method (like in korg pa900 and etc.) and powers a built-in drums & bass + acc oscillators to play styles that can be programmed by the user and played as a style with no additional MIDI routing, internal MIDI connection or MIDI cables straight from your instrument channel in the DAW.

The method

Like any other hardware arranger organ, Majoris splits the physical keyboard into 2 zones. The right zone plays solo while The left zone controls the played style’s chords which can be switched in fingered or one finger mode. Majoris Free has 6 variations slots per style include intro, main variations, fills and end. The variations can be controlled by any MIDI controller or even with MIDI pads or the keyboard notes. Even the “jump to” destinations can be re-programmed.

The internal sound generators

Majoris Free uses synths and a drum sampler as it’s own sound generators. The drum sampler’s kits can be deeply programmed and edited and the bass and the solo synths are quite basic but easy to operate. The style sequencer which create new styles uses almost the same programming method as our Callisto. You can program both minor and majors variations of your style and save each with it’s unique tempo or synced to the DAW.

An apology!

Since this project is too huge to count all it’s nuances and mini features, we recommend novice arranger users to first read the principles of the arranger organs. Sorry we can’t count them all, but we believe this tool is quite intuitive with a reasonable shallow learning curve, so please, make a little research before you dive into it.

Main features list:

  • 6 variations drums, bass and ACC styles slots with major and minor chords per variation.
  • One finger (jumps from minor to major with double clicking) or full fingered modes.
  • Dedicated style’s 10 slots drum sampler with built-in effects.
  • Dedicated style’s bass synth with built in effects and ducking option.
  • Dedicated solo synth with 3 variations per style and on-GUI switching buttons.
  • Transition sensitivity button.
  • Mute button.
  • Hold variation button.
  • split keyboard knob.
  • global and independent transpose knob.
  • Master, style and solo volume knobs.
  • “Jump to” menu selectors.
  • Dedicated or synced tempo.
  • Full automation.
  • Auto cymbal crash feature.
  • Internal “Callisto” style programming sequencer.
  • Visual info bar.
  • Resizable GUI.

Differences between Majoris Free and Majoris

Majoris Free is basically a complete free edition of Majoris that has few limitations: It has 6 variation instead of the 10 in the senior edition, it lack the solo MIDI out connection to 3th party VST’is in the D.A.W and it lacks the separate 6 audio outputs to individual D.A.W channels. Other than that, both versions share same structures, same styles and additional information (and therefore the same installer as well).
