Rules Clarification (v1): If you're using a wavetable synth, single cycle samples are ok, hand drawn waveforms are ok, and morphing between single cycle samples is fine. If necessary allow maximum of two imported single cycles per wave table.

Welcome to the One Synth Challenge #121 and 10 year anniversary! OSC is a friendly music competition where you can win cool prizes but most importantly, meet amazing musicians, and learn a lot about mixing, sound design, and more! :)

Here's How It Works:
  1. 1.Download our synth of the month here
    2. You make an awesome track before the 1st of next month using only the chosen synth and some effects *Rules Apply*
    3. Announce your submission here on this thread, with proper details
    4. Submit your soundcloud link here following the correct format for title, download enabled, and submission description. Your song will be picked up on the OSC player
    5. Once submissions are over, the voting starts - you *MUST* vote to get a ranking or prize
    6. The voting link will be posted on the 1st, and OP will be updated.
    7. Maybe you win? You meet new friends? Learn something new?
    8. Most importantly... have fun!

    **MAKE SURE YOU READ THE RULES** | See Contest Page for latest track Submissions, Info, FAQ & More


Submissions will show up here once voting starts: (n/a)

Bon anniv'!
I bet there are people here who have acquired so many synths throughout their lives, that it might take them the whole month just to decide which one to pick^^
i'm hesitating beetween two.

Hey, happy b'day OSC!

60 in a row is amazing, @doctorbob! One-year anniversary for me, more or less - I think my first was Feb. 2018.

This is brilliant - I know exactly what I'm going to do :)

I like that we kept the fx rules in place for any synth. Going to have to make time for this month, got a few ideas from the idea bin kicking around. It is going to be very very tough to decide on which synth to use.

Edit : thinking realtor blocks

Last any synth challenge, I went with Synth1, then Sytrus for my actual entry. This time, I want to use Harmor, but I don't know how far I can take it before I end up cheating.
It's very tasty, I swear!

I think about a Sonic Pi piece. I'm not yet 100% clear about it...
Does Sonic Pi count as 1 synth? I mean it supports a number of sound generators. Check out the list here:
https://github.com/samaaron/sonic-pi/bl ... /synths.md
If I restrict the track to the "none sample based" ones. Would this be o.k?

Oh, even commercial synths? Huh, didn't even realize. But still, I know which one I want to give a go and it's a free one. 8)

I will probably use VECTO in demo mode. I want to pick up a purchase for myself. This competition will provide an opportunity to explore the synthesizer.

I see why last month wasn't Any Synth - we were waiting for the OSC anniversary!
This will be my 6th, so half a year. Best hobby ever!

I haven't made my mind up, I come under the category of owning too many synths.
While I'm making my mind up, I'll start with Zebra2/ZebraHZ :D
