Do you miss the old days when a synth was not plug n play, but a challange in routing? Where you had to tune a synth before you could play it and where spring reverbs and filters would go nuts?

With Cynthia you can do all that crazy stuff you cant do with a modern synth. Cynthia is monophonic VSTi, very Old School, but will still be able to keep in tune throughout the song, patches can be stored and it is of course fully MIDI controllable.

Cynthia is free to use and will send you 30 years back in time to the dawn of modular synthesis…

As the name implies its inspired from the old EMS SynthiA. I did my best to match the specifications of the SynthiA, but as I got bored I threw in a bit extra…

                              SH-009 Monosynth is an emulated Roland SH-09 (Roland does not endorse this plug-in of course). It is pretty close in functionality and sound to the hardware version. Highlights include a LFO modulator with random / sample-and-hold step voltage that can be used to modulate the oscillator, the filter, and the pulse width. It also includes an invert switch for the envelope, which can modulate the filter and pulse width, as well as the amplifier.

                              Two versions are included: a VST instrument and a VST effect. The effect version can be used as an insert or in a modular host to process external audio through the filter and to control the filter envelope.

                              Oddy-Free is an emulation of an Arp Odyssey Mk.II - much attention to detail was given in the layout of the signal path to have it behave as accurately as possible. It does have just a touch more umph than most originals would - this particular emulation was based on the “illegal” filter versions based on Moog’s -24dB Low-Pass filter, so it sounds quite a bit smoother and richer but at the same it can produce the harsh metallic tones known from the Odyssey.
