The Quilcom Mystery synthesiser was designed to explore a specific type of technique whereby an additive synth (with sub) can have the amplitude of each partial modulated by its own independent polyphonic LFO. Many settings can be randomised manually or via a trigger generator, and there are two identical sound generators for nice stereo effects and a fuller sound.
The technique seems to be most useful for pad and soundscape making, so that’s what the presets focus on.
Lo-Fi Keys is a processed piano rompler inspired by today’s modern Lo-Fi music.
This small VST / AU plugin gives you the ability to lay out soft & dusty piano chord progressions and melodies.
Lo-Fi Keys comes with 10 sampled piano instruments. To create each preset we first started by sampling actual pianos. These pianos include a classic grand piano, upright piano, and electric keyboard. After recording the instruments we lightly edited and processed each sample. The processing technique included applying vinyl and tape textures to emulate a vintage sound. Finally, each sample showcases the characteristics found in today’s most popular lo-fi piano beats.
It brings up lightning speed drum-kits loading and fast one stage control, fitted for live usage. Now, with better control, both mp3 and WAV. format support, faster workflow and only 0.5 sec. loading times for new core kit, Yumbu 2 is one of the quickest drum samplers in the market.
Yumbu 2 uses 10 (.wav, mp3) file sample slots to build 10 drum components drum-kits. According to this approach, every slot can be anything, from kicks to snares or cymbals or you name it. Each slot is triggered by its own unique MIDI note which noted on its slot button. For instance, slot 48 is triggered by note number 48 in the MIDI keyboard (c2). The samples menu is divided into 14 categories, including a wide range of drum-kit components types. Each type button (kicks, snares, claps, etc.) is directing to it’s own sample library folder which located at “C:UsersyournameDocumentsFananteamYumbuUSER”. Each sample slot has also a room for user’s imported samples which can be added manually to the “user” folder. Yumbu 2 comes with 30 full drum-kits to start with.
Yumbu 2 has a built-in mixer that allows you to tweak any sample separately. You can use the EQ, change the pitch, add a random pitch manipulation to every sample, pan and you can use our pitch based round robin effect which has a wide control ability on the final sound. The mixer is also armed with 3 master effects (compressor, reverb, delay) with a brand new unique effect called “F.R” which allows full scale frequency control over the wet signal. You can use the effect by sending a fx amount from the “master fx” knob on every channel or you can override the per cell sending and just send them directly to the master effect.
Yumbu 2 loads drumkits extremely fast, only 0.5 sec for full loading. It can set “sample start and “sample end” points with MIDI assignable knobs and it also allows you to tweak the active keyboard’s octaves starting points. Yumbu 2 uses 24 presets drumkit banks. Each preset represents a full drumkit containing all the components and settings.
Yumbu 2 is armed with brand new morphing system which can blend any 2 drum elements together (which can create tons of new fresh drum sounds). The morph system can also play with the blended element’s pitch and increase the invention of new drum sounds like never before.
Each channel in Yumbu 2 is armed with dedicated modulation effects which allow adding beautiful nuances and textures to each drum element separately. There is a yowling phaser effect, a delay and the new Zelda filter which can completely change the audio materials native character and morph it into a new interesting sound.

OB-Xd is based on the Oberheim OB-X. It attempts to recreate its sound and behavior, but as the original was very limited in some important ways a number of things were added or altered to the original design. OB-Xd was designed to sound as good and as rich as the original. It implements micro random detuning which is a big part of that sound.
• 7x faster GUI controls.
• Linux build.
• Standalone app.
• Signed and notarized installers.
• Updated JUCE framework to 5.4.7 for better stability and compatibility.
• Updated Banks with 2.0 compatibility.
• Ilkka Rosma Dark Theme.
• macOS Catalina support.
• MIDI CC Learn.
• MIDI CC support.
• Parameter refactor.
• XML based skinning.
• HiDPI (Retina) ready GUI themes.
• Preset browser bar (switchable using MENU button).
• Added FXP preset and FXB bank files drag and drop support.
• New MIDI CC XML config menu.
• Enhanced MIDI learn. Bindings will be saved to Documents > discoDSP > OB-Xd > MIDI > Custom.xml file for all instances.
• Enhanced Standalone app.
• Fixed preset sync issue.
• Fixed LEARN button led click issue.
While not copying originals, some of the features were taken to a better point. Continuous blendable multimode filter (HP-Notch(BP)-HP in 12 dB mode and 4-1 pole in 24 dB mode). Also, like many synths of the OB-X’s generation, the OB-Xd has no internal effects so its sounds and textures can be greatly enhanced by the use of additional processing like chorus, reverb, delay, etc.
Thanks to 2Dat for the original OB-Xd and Soshi Studio for giving the rights to continue this wonderful product. Also thanks to all KVR artists for making the amazing skins!. OB-Xd Desktop has no restrictions and is free to use. Buy to support further development, thank you! Source code is available under GPL license at GitHub.
Gala is a successor to our virtual analog instruments line which actually combines all of them under a single roof in 2 versions:
Gala XL – 28 instruments (royal pack member)
Gala free – 15 instruments (Free)
Both versions share the same basic features (which will be listed below) while the differences between them are:
Gala XL has keyboard split feature which allows splitting the hardware keyboard into 2 zones and routing each of the 4 oscillators to any zone
Gala XL has a new feature called “note slider” which allows creating note sliding sequence effect
Gala is based on an improved physical modeling code of a virtual analog oscillators that work in an open mixer format and mixes up 4 independent top crafted wave-forms with an incredible dynamic range and generates 28 instruments ensemble emulation, each with it’s own size and color which can mix any 4 instruments together and create rich multi combinations, articulations and textures.
Gala XL instruments:
3 pop strings.
5 oriental strings.
4 cinematic-pop brasses.
4 oriental organs.
Gala Free instruments:
3 pop strings.
4 cinematic-pop brasses.
Gala (both versions) has full synthesis section, 2 different MIDI velocity options, a user friendly global hipass-lopass filter, a full section of built in effects (saturation, chorus, phaser, tremolo, reverb and delay), built-in draw-bars system per oscillator, an advanced mono mode, full MIDI map, stereo and gleam effect and a resizable and customizable GUI.
Introducing a brand new Kontakt instrument: Remote Violin nano!
While this is not the first string instrument Acousmatic Sounds has built, it is the first to be released to the public.
The Remote Violin nano is cozy, screechy and oddly intimate. You will find four different sliders and two knobs, all CC assignable, that control the direct audio (recorded by a regular iPhone), two “interference” signals and a reverb created by a less than ideal reverb pedal!
Depending on where the Remote Violin nano will sit in your mix, the high end can be harsh at times, nothing that a low pass filter cannot fix. However, if you are after a more lo-fi feel, you can let the instrument’s natural top end shine through.
Two panning knobs give you extra control over this instrument, making it easier ad more interesting to create string textures and pads.
Piano Textures is a free virtual instrument for Kontakt featuring an intimately recorded Upright Piano which has been twisted, mangled and warped in to a wide array in cinematic sounds. Featuring 8 custom presets ranging from a warm and delicate upright piano sound, to dark, dirty, detuned, distorted, pulsing and everything in between – download now for free and start making music!
