The Tyrell Nexus 6 plug-in was programmed by Urs Heckmann (mastermind of u-he) for Amazona.de. This is a virtual analog software synthesizer: the sound engine is circuit-modeled and is similar to the u-he "ACE". The features are those that we may expect from a vintage synthesizer like the Juno series from Roland.

Features:

  • 2 Oscillators.
  • 1 Sub-Oscillator.
  • 1 Noise Generator.
  • 1 Ring modulator.
  • 1 Signal feedback.
  • 2 LFOs.
  • 2 ADSR envelopes.
  • 1 Modulation Matrix.

It's good thing. But be ready it is very limited. Only 2 Matrix slots. You can't control the phase of the OSCs. There is no Static parametr to use as Source. You can use Stack Voice instead but when you set 2 or more unison voices it will affect them in opposite directions. And it's CPU heave.

But yeah. It's very good sound you get for free. Especialy for the basses.

Also I did not found much good presets for it.

P.S.

You've gotta love the chorus it has. I don't know how it works but you can easely make that it's mostly high content passes to sides. So even if you add chorus to the bass patch it will be very mono compatible while sound much wider.

This synth sounds really good, but the CPU can be a limiting factor. The limited oscillator section (originally designed to be hardware) reminds me of the Arp 2600 a little bit, and there are some flexible routing options that also remind me of the Arp 2600. It has a weird sounding duophonic mode where the oscillators are controlled independently.

Pros:

  • Free of charge.
  • Great sound quality.
  • Duophonic mode is fairly unusual for most synth architecture.
  • Morphing oscillators.
  • Flexible ring modulation.

Cons:

  • High CPU usage (especially when using the Voice Stack feature).
  • Some additional filter options would be nice.
  • Oscillator waveforms are somewhat limited.

This has to be the best VA freebie out there right now and it is extremely generous of Urs to code such a wonderful soft synth and then release it for no money down - drive away - with nothingmore to pay....

That makes it a no-brainer right there...

I think of this as a mini version of Diva which is my favourite VA of all time and a lot of the goodness in Diva is trickling down into Tyrell...

Like Diva - Tyrell is a bit of a CPU hog,but that's the price you have to pay for a such a wonderfully deep and dimensional sound...

This synth has real character and a "coarseness" to the sound which is exactly what you need most of the time..

All those prissy synths with their fruity FX just get lost in the translation and clog up the mix.....

This one is straight foward,has real punch and it sounds great !

The only thing they got wrong is the name...It should really be called the "Uno Slix" :)

Ohh...and it could use the reveb and a few other FX from Diva...There's room to slot them into the GUI...

Urs is on a bit of a roll at the moment with a great development team and some 3rd party sound designers who know how to make these synths sing and things are only getting better all of the time...

Zebra,Ace and Diva are all fantastic synths and the freebies - Tyrell N6 and Zebralette are no-brainers....

So grab Tyrell N6 v2 and a new skin and give it a whirl...

It's a winner that will put a smile on your dial and make you feel like a winner too :)

5 Stars and much kudos to Urs and the team at u-he....

Didn't know there was a review section or I would have written this earlier.

The sound "quality" of the Tyrell N6 is phenomenal. This (and the Zebralette) are the two best sounding FREE synths currently available by a long shot. Oatmeal, Crystal, Polyiblit, Synth1 etc.. are all great synth's but they don't have the same "quality sound" as the 2 mentioned.

Both are pretty easy to navigate & use and are capable of more with their single osc configurations than others are with multiple osc's. At first, I couldn't understand why these were available for free UNTIL I ended up purchasing Zebralette's big brother Zebra2. A GREAT marketing strategy yes, but the fact remains, they are both superb and leave very little else to be desired.

To whom it may concern. I am planning to make a YouTube video using your Tyrell Nexus 6 and Zebralette plugins. I am asking permission to use your freeware plugins in my noncommercial tunes and videos. Thank You.

when you download this plugin it comes with a license agreement that says you can use it in commercial and non-commercial works, as that's kind of the point of you getting the plugin. there is no need to ask for permission.

There's a v3 available for some time now. Time to update the KVR DB in this regard? :).

Hi.

Is this the correct place to post a question about the N6?
