miniBit is a 8-bit/chiptune style synthesizer that emulates the sound of 80s game consoles and retrocomputers.
It features a main oscillator with 15 waveforms paired with a sub oscillator (a square wave pitched one octave below). The waveforms are not bandlimited and will produce aliasing. Furthermore, using the built-in bitcrusher, you can create even more noisy and retro sounds.

Details
  • Price: €20 / $20
  • 18 Waveforms
  • Sub Oscillator
  • Poly and Mono mode with Glide
  • 2-poles Low Pass Filter
  • Delay and BitCrusher effects
  • 8 Steps Stepper with multiple destinations
  • LFO with multiple destinations
  • 128 Presets
  • Preset randomizer
  • Formats: VST, VST3, AU, and AAX (32/64bit)
  • Platforms: OSX, Windows

I don't think there's been a decent 8-bit VST since the days of Krakli and DeLaMancha. Audiothing seem to be doing good stuff at the moment, lets see how this one looks. (Signed up anyway)

Thanks for the kind words guys.

The interface will be clean and easy to use. Just the essential controls and a few built-in effects. I actually started to work on it because I needed it for myself :) Anyway, more info and a GUI coming soon!

There is also SIDizer by HyperSynth. But all those are 32 bit only.

Good thing about AudioThing is that they do 64 bit too.

I'm going to export my subscribers list to a nice spreadsheet and I will use this: http://www.random.org/
(That's basically what I did for every giveaway in the past)
