Addiction Synth is a professional, intuitive, and versatile subtractive synthesizer. It gives you the power to shape sound, whether you're aiming for that sweet organ, funky clav, or spacious pad. There's a wide range of tools at your disposal, including oscillators, filters, effects, mods, and more — everything you need to nail that perfect texture. As the sound evolves through your hands, you'll get feedback from the synth's beautiful spectrum display. It's a great addition to any producer's toolkit.
Addiction Synth is designed to help novice users understand how the different elements of a synthesizer fit together. With this synth, anyone can create amazing synths right out of the box.
Our philosophy is that the software should visually show you what it's doing. Every knob and button produces a visual change as well as a sonic one, allowing you to see exactly how the sound is changing and evolving throughout the track.
The fundamental building blocks of any subtractive synthesizer are waveform generators (voices), a filter (where the tone is shaped), and effects (or mods).
Addiction Synth includes a high-definition auto-filter with a unique spectrum display showing you exactly how the sound is being shaped at every moment. This level of audio and visual feedback is unparalleled.
Use automation to create unique sounds, from that dubstep-characteristic wobble to voices coming in and out at random intervals, and effects fading in and out with perfect quantized precision.

Addiction Synth by Stagecraft Software is a simple, super sounding subtractive virtual instrument. The interface is inviting, not intimidating. All the features are streamlined to deliver power without complication. It's easy to use, yet surprisingly versatile and sonically deep. Scanning the presets reveals a surprising tonal array, ranging from digital clarity to analog thickness. It gives a lot of sound for a little price.

• Usable presets.
• Small footprint.

• Naming a SUBtractive synth ADDiction may seem odd to some. I found a few interesting re-name suggestions on Synthtopia, including,"SUBiquitous" and "SUBmission."
• Not fully-featured, but isn't that part of its charm?
• More, more, more factory presets/patches. Hopefully a 3rd party develops a bank or two.
• Standalone version?
Addiction Synth by Stagecraft Software is simple, yet powerful virtual synth that is being sold at a bargain price. I highly recommend this plugin to anyone looking to learn subtractive synthesis — Yes, I think this would be an excellent "learner's synth." According to the developer,"This synth is designed to let you see exactly how a synth is built." Addiction Synth would also be useful for just about any eMusician, who needs a solid basic synth that is easy to program and sounds great. Tommy Zai gives Addiction Synth two handy thumbs up. Thank you, Stagecraft Software, for designing this little gem.
