No Longer Available

Borderliner is an attempt to break away from the normal synths available, providing you with a partly colour based interface. The colours represent moods. "Black and White" provide the basis. You can also mix the Black and White "tones" to obtain various forms of grey...which in turn can be colourized to provide different sounds.... and rather like a borderliner, a small change can have a large affect on the result...

the gui is fun but a but too small for my taste.
i feel that if you are looking for ugly sounds and what not go DL the piz synths; his synths are ugly and useful.Read more

this is a nasty beast, I was using it today and felt I had to turn down the volume to avoid offending people. the interface isn't clear but that's a bit of a nice feature in that it keeps you from trying to do anything specific.
the most interesting feature has to be the effects section I'm not sure what the effects are but they can get positively brutal. also the presets are pretty nasty, I'm gonna have to write a song just to be able to use this thing... though I'm not clear on exactly how
this thing is genuinly useful (unlike my spelling) if you're stuck in a rut of same sounding vsti's, it also won't be acused of being phat.
in conclusion this isn't a work horse synth, but you could potentially found a new genre on it's sound.Read more

I have no idea how this works. Who cares! I like to play with it, slide stuff around, hear the weird sounds ooze out.

One damn fine, absolutely original VSTi.Read more

I think that the words that mostly defines Borderline is surprisingly new and fresh. It sound extremely metallic, not bass at all, but good for weird sounds or leads so rich in high harmonics that will stand up any background like was usual with Casio synths. Weird phase distortion sound. It's difficult to defined but worth the time I've spent with it. Don't expect a classic synth but a completely new assortment of sounds despite it's basic substractive architecture.
The presets set is good showing a good range of possibilities. It's a pity but it's monophonic.Read more
