A single bass patch. An attempt to recreate a popular Synthwave bass. Charlatan is not perfect for this sound but the result is usable nonetheless.

Range is from C3-C2 to get best results with 1/16th and 1/8th notes. Arrange the files by date modified to check out the latest ones (which might be best). Cheers

excellent synth, sounds great. perfect for all sequencer lines, with multiple

instances running. would like to see more from this dev in the future, taking

the concept a bit further. top-notch go-to machine. (would be nice to set different

background colour, too, next time ;) )

28 December 2011 at 1:28pmsolidtrax

That's also what we think and hope for (and more). Would be awesome to have a highpass filter and some more osc-options/waves f.e.

I actually have grown to love this VST. The Organ 1 sound preset is so phat it's just awesome!

Great VST!

24 January 2012 at 9:30pmrayola1

sweet but solid sound. filter sounds great, would love to LFO and envelope modulation

thank you very much!

I hope for more...

Sounds great, especially the demo track on y'alls site. any chance of an OS X version for when I'm away from my Windows rig?

7 January 2013 at 12:16amTEKing66

Just discovered the Charlatan synth, and I must say that for a free VST I am very impressed.

6 June 2013 at 9:43amZenSound

The best characteristic of this synth is that it is extremely simple and easy to use.

I like the sound especially playing keys and basses in poliphonic mode.

Would be fine add modulation to the LFO with the Mod. Envelope.

Great sounds from a neat synth.

Will their be a better preset browser in future?

8 March 2015 at 9:40pmoscillian


Track made with 12 instances goes to show the scope of a lovely plugin.

10 March 2015 at 5:36pmBlackWinny

A beautiful demo! Great.

Hello dominic I downloaded the 2.0 b file, except that it is version 1.4.1.

someday we will have a Linux version?

Im having trouble loading preset banks... I wanna use Charlatan in a DAW called Stagelight, but there is no button in the host to open complimentary files, like these preset files.

In Ableton it was easy to do because it offers a button to open preset files, but still, the presets won't show up in Stagelight. Is there another way to add presets?? I just don't see how within the GUI in Charlatan?

Please add the key tracking for the volume. I mean the key tracking that makes the volume for the notes different. Like the higher the note the lower the volume and vice versa.

Similar to the key tracking for the filter.

it ought to be possible to set up a multitimbral charlatan array with some sort of MIDI filtering and routing. i'll bet Reaper could handle that.

15 June 2016 at 4:13pmmusicalmemoriesuk

Have just downloaded and instaled charlatan as i was its a good synth for a beginner so looking for a tutorial or help with using it.

16 January 2017 at 10:11amoverhishead

this is an incredible instrument that has replaced (the previous king of freeware synths) for me. Charlatan is so ergonomic, easy to navigate, almost too simple, and it is almost impossible to make it sound bad. It is refreshing that it is not yet another clone of some other synth, and that it is a sincere attempt to deliver the goods without getting ahead of itself in terms of usability and expected behavior.
