Nettle by Fellusive 0 (0)

Nettle explores the unique and relatively under-explored world of scanned synthesis.

The timbre of the sounds you create constantly evolve, as the waveform produced is made by tracing (scanning) the positions of masses that are always in motion. These masses are set into motion when you press a key on your MIDI controller – this simulates the action of a hammer striking the connection of masses.
Through the user’s manipulation of the masses, the springs that connect them, and the hammer that excites them, a wide range of dynamic, almost sentient, sounds are possible.
  • 32-voice polyphony.
  • Fully automatable knobs.
  • Filter (low-pass, high-pass) and reverb available for signal processing.
  • Four LFOs and ADSRs available for modulation, along with two sources for modulation via your MIDI controller.
  • Built-in presets, as well as the ability for users to save and modify their own presets.
  • A randomize button.

PlayMate is a simple FM synthesizer inspired by the world of toys.

It is able to generate a range of sounds, from cheap basses to distorted and noisy leads, and may also be used for teaching facial gestures.

  • Dual 6-operators oscillators.
  • Drawable oscillator shapes.
  • Dual distorted lowpass filters.
  • Feedback distortion and LFO modulation.
  • Cheap and dirty reverb

GR-8 by Phuturetone 0 (0)

GR-8 is an 8 voices virtual analog synthesizer with built-in effects and an arpeggiator.

  • Arpeggiator: 5 Modes (Up, Down, Alt 1, Alt 2, Random), 4 Octaves Range.
  • Voice Modes: Mono, Unison (8 voices), Chord (4 stereo notes), Poly (8 voices).
  • Voice Effects: Glide, Legato, Voice Detune, Voice Stereo Spread.
  • Oscillators: OSC 1 (Tri, Saw, Pulse, Square), OSC 2 (Sine, Saw, Pulse, Noise).
  • Oscillator Effects: Cross Modulation (FM), Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), Sync.
  • Filters: Non-resonant High Pass, Resonant Low Pass (12, 18, or 24 dB/Octave).
  • Modulation: Pitch Bender, Mod Wheel, LFO, 2 Envelopes.
  • Effects: EQ, Distortion, Phaser, Chorus/Flanger, Delay, Reverb.
  • Presets: 88.

Caution: Each preset has its own MIDI assignment. If you make a MIDI assignment you need to save the preset. Otherwise, the MIDI assignment you’ve made will be lost as soon you change the preset. If you want to make your own presets with the same MIDI assignments, you can do it by assigning MIDI controls to the Initial preset, saving a copy of it, and using it as a template for your sounds.

Chowdhury DSP ChowKick free kick drum synthesizer 0 (0)

ChowKick is a kick drum synthesizer based on creative modelling of old drum machine circuits. Along with a highly parameterizable pulse shaper, Chow Kick uses a resonant filter with several nonlinear modes, creating a wide range of possibilities for sound designers. The kick drum can also be easily “tuned” with incoming MIDI notes to match the key of your song.

EVOX Calypso by 2MGT/Metamusic Generative Tools 0 (0)

 

EVOX Calypso is an experimental sound, performance-oriented virtual musical instrument that is designed for creating cinematic ambient soundscapes, sound structures, and atmospheric and ethereal textures, as well as more traditional synthesizer sounds that can be layered to create a tremendous variety of spatial sounds. EVOX Calypso sounds extend to unattainable distances, immersing you in unexpected worlds. The tool includes more than 128 ready-to-mix presets.
EVOX Calypso is Free/Donate. The Free version has some limitations. A version available to supporters includes a package of additional presets for synthesizers, effects, and track models.No installation is necessary, and it works without problems in Windows XP and Windows 10 (32/64-bit). (EVOX Calypso is 32-bit.)
EVOX Calypso is an standalone tool application for Windows that employs Wavetable / Granular synthesis in two separate and programmable layers each with extensive FX, Modulation Matrix and Chord Sequencer modules which provide the user with maximum control over unique sound creation.
As an experimental synthesizer, it radically departs from standard type instruments and is meant to be used as a laboratory for the exploration of new sonic and timbral creations. Playing EVOX Calypso is not like playing a conventional synthesizer, it does not have a keyboard and MIDI GUI like conventional synthesizers. Sound manipulation is carried out by built-in modulators and sequencers.
EVOX Calypso also has an 8-track sequencer with up to 64 steps for each track. Each track is essentially a separate synthesizer that can be recorded and played back in sync with the other tracks. Mini compositions can be made by merging these tracks together.

VOSIMSynth by Austen 0 (0)

VOSIMSynth is a free, fully modular audio synthesizer with a focus on speed, audio quality, and ease of use. Check out the github page (https://github.com/austensatterlee/VOSIMSynth) for more information.

Pre-built binaries for Windows can be found on the github release page, or directly from KVR. Note that these links are currently 64-bit builds only.

Nightly builds (including 32-bit builds) can also be obtained from AppVeyor by visiting the github page and clicking on the AppVeyor badge at the top of the readme.

Also, please note that VOSIMSynth has mostly been tested using (and therefore likely works best with) Reaper and VSTHost / SAVIHost.
