Okay: I edited my post and added a lot of the presets I used for my track, along with a few notes, if anyone's interested. (download/file.php?id=25722)

Needless to say to you guys, but, as is so often the case with this type of preset: They're tweaked for a particular purpose, and so they're not as fat, rich or just plain usable as a normal standalone preset would be. Anyway, I hope they can be of some value to those who grab them. :hihi:

I, rebel! Also, self-doubt is the bad glue that leaves us to our own devices, forcing us to keep ourselves together (or so say I) :D

I'm surprised at the tracks and presets of great quality.
I'm going to enjoy the presets.

So, this is an announcement for update version 2.0.5.

About mouse operations:
Option selection is now possible with a single-click,
and double-click to reset.

Improved CPU performance:
It has improved by at least 10% and more than 30% depending on the preset.
There was room for pre-calculation.

And added crash protection, Vel0's NoteOn convert, and a fine fix.


There's still room for performance improvement, but I'll bring it to you in this state.

Thank you.

Ive made some 30 or so presets for the synth. I wanted to participate but im short on time so I decided to post what i have so far. For a free synth its pretty good. I like the unusual modulation options between the oscillators for FM and RM and the waveshaping. the modulation window is also pretty cool. Ive had issues left and right trying to modulate and to have the envelope do what I want it to do, but for the most part its pretty straightforward. Also the sound is very resonant, even with the 4x sampling and various filter types this synth just seems to sound super harsh and is difficult to tame. Reverb and delay are almost a must on every channel to smooth out the sound. Looking forward to see what people come up with. Presets are attache below

Thanks for sharing, Loris!

I actually used a lower sampling rate to reduce the harshness of some of my sounds. I tried to create some Juno approximations, and (in my own humble opinion) they sound fairly warm and full at 1/4. There are lots of artifacts as well, but the presets sound great in the mix. However, if you change them to 1/1, they become very sterile and thin.

I doubled up on most of my percussion tracks to get a fuller sound. I did the "claps" by making 2 tracks and then offsetting them very slightly … only the piano soloist is 2 layers, the bass, piano and 3 other soloists are a single instance of Lith! Capable synth, but you need to bend it to your taste/mix!

Hope this info is of some use to someone :-)

I really enjoy it :)
Also interesting is the layer sound. Useful for future function expansion.


Thank you schiing and loris16148 for uploading the presets.


A bug was found in v2.0.5.
Sometimes there is a problem with the envelope and it makes a strange release.

Someone taught me, Thank you.

It has been corrected.
So the latest version is v2.0.6.

Thanks for the update … I have uploaded a new render of my track as the change to the release seems to have improved the legato behaviour? :party: :tu:

(Re-)Enjoy :D
