Synth1 VST Plugin


Synth1 VST Plugin

Now this plugin has been around the block for quite some time now and I'm not sure why I haven't recommended it earlier but as they say: Better late than never. 
Given my newfound love for it I'm going to showcase a couple of badass banks and show you why it's still a heavy hitter, capable of modern premium sounds although it's completely free to use without any restrictions. 

Synth1 was created by Ichiro Toda. It's modelled after the Clavia Nord Lead 2 Red Synthesizer.  It's a super light-weight plugin and even the crappiest of computers will be able to run several instances at once without crashing due to CPU and RAM limitations. 

Synth1 VST Features:

  • 2 Oscillators, FM modulation, ring modulation, sync, modulation envelope.
  • 4 types of filters, distortion.
  • 2 LFOs (synchronized with host).
  • Arpeggiator (synchronized with host).
  • Tempo delay (synchronized with host), stereo chorus/flanger.
  • Legato mode, portamento.
  • 16 notes polyphony.
  • 128 presets.
  • Thoroughly optimized for light CPU load using SSE instructions, etc.
  • Automation.
