Zebralette is just one of Zebra2's oscillators packed into a simple, easy-to-learn framework – but you have everything you need to make some pretty amazing sounds. Sound that can be directly loaded into Zebra2 later. And should you eventually decide to upgrade to Zebra2, you will already know everything there is to know about the oscillators – which is quite an advantage.

Zebralette has two LFOs (one per voice, one global), a multi-stage envelope and three on-board effects (chorus, EQ, delay). Not forgetting Zebra2's famous dual spectral effects, which include several squelchy filter algorithms.

Awesome synth, hard to believe it's free. Also hard to believe it is a single oscillator with the sounds you can create. As recommended, I used Zebralette to learn how to work with the Zebra oscillators before diving into Zebra2. Here is a short (1:34) orchestral piece produced as part of that effort:


Everything...drums, strings, brass, and extra sounds...are all Zebralette.

If you are looking for a soft synth give it a try. The presets are excellent, and if you like creating unique sounding instruments yourself Zebralette is a must-have.

Hello! i installed plug in zebralette and its not playing in the host im using- acid music why?

- Does your version of Acid Music support VST Instruments?

- Have you installed Zebralette into the correct folder?

Do you use it exactly as written here?

And also... have you pressed the button "Scan" to refresh the list of your VST's in your Acid Music Studio?

Beware also, there is a point which is very important for all the VST's and all the hosts:

  • A 32-bit host can use only 32-bit VST's.
  • A 64-bit host can use only 64-bit VST's.

There are very, very few exceptions, so few that there is no need to explain that longer here.

The most part of the problems encountered in a host about its communication with the VST's are due to this important thing which is unknown by beginners of even sometimes forgotten by the others.

"Does your version of Acid Music support VST Instruments?" yes i already have one.

"Have you installed Zebralette into the correct folder?" C:\Program Files\Vstplugins\u-he/Diva.Data and the Diva.dll.

It should be:

"C:\Program Files\Vstplugins\u-he\Diva.Data"

This conversation seems like it would be so much more helpful if taken to the actual forum page and not the product page. http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=31.

There is a version 2.7.

Urs... could you update this KVR page to inform your users?

Kind regards,.

It should be nice also if you would create a page for Triple Cheese in KVR. Actually there's not yet any page for this though very nice free synth.

(for the moment, here is the original page on Urs' website)
