de la Mancha has released plastique and announced a special offer for Octav8r until 1st January 2009: if you buy Octav8r ($24), the download will include a free copy of Dirtbox 3 (usually $24).
plastique is a free 2-oscillator subtractive synth VSTi for Windows, using the 31 waveforms from the Casio HT-700 synth and some enhancements to the original's feature set. It does lo-fi 80s sounds but also so much more, with a configurable filter (up to 16 poles), a pitch envelope for percussion, an arp, tempo sync delay & LFO, chorus and some lo-fi instability.
