Sound-Base Audio releases "Retro Boy" Chiptune VSTi for Windows

Sound-Base Audio has released Retro Boy, a free chiptune synth VSTi for Windows.

Retro Boy is a virtual analog chiptune synthesizer/emulator. It does not specifically emulate a single device or sound chip, but it was made with a certain handheld gaming system in mind. The goal was to make a simple, minimal, synth that could create "8-bit music" without being overly complicated or requiring much knowledge from the end-user.

Retro Boy's main features include:

  • Single oscillator with seven different waveforms: Pulse 1 (12.5% duty cycle), Pulse 2 (25% duty cycle), Pulse 3 (50% duty cycle), Saw, Triangle, Sine, Noise.
  • Volume, vibrato, decimation, ADSR envelope, and voice control (adjustable from 1 to 4 voices).
  • Low CPU usage, <1% on an i5 processor.

Price: Free.

There is an XL version of Retro Boy in the works. However, there is no definite time as to when it will be made available. Check SBAudio's DevLog for any future updates on the development of the XL version.
