Toybox releases Buzz Zone Synth for macOS & Windows (VST3/AU)


Toybox has announced the release of Buzz Zone, describing it as:

Buzz Zone is a boutique performance-oriented synth with a rich set of features, cutting edge DSP and a streamlined modern interface for endless inspiration and experimentation.

Like the plugin's predecessor Thump One, the synth plugin has been designed with Toybox's modular, 'west-coast' approach to circuit layout, with gritty oscillators, subtle cross-modulations and high-quality modelling giving the plugin its unique sound.

The synthesiser features two engines that can be layered together and cross modulated for a variety of complex sounds and textures. The 'Synth' engine features two 'wavetable' oscillators, with a large library of included wavetables, that can be combined using a section of 'Harmony Modes'. The 'Sample' engine can be used to layer additional textures or drive the built in vocoder.

The interface features a separate multi segment envelope generator (MSEG) for each of the synths main controls for flexible and fluid sound sculpting.


  • 9 multi segment envelopes, one for each of the 9 main controls, with an intuitive 'auto curve' function.
  • Streamlined yet versatile interface with all controls on a single screen.
  • Deep analog modelling based on the cream of Eurorack modules and legendary vintage synths.
  • 'State of the art' DSP, with the latest ADAA anti aliasing techniques for rich analog sounds without digital artefacts, even when pushed into extreme territories.
  • Creative routing, unusual filters plus FM, AM, ring modulation and wave folding to creating harmonically rich analog timbres, ideal for modern sound design.
  • Library of crafted wavetables and samples.
  • Vocoder mode allows you to imprint tonal characteristics of the loaded samples on to the output of the Synth engine.
  • Over 400 presets included from professional sound designers for everything from massive pads to modern drums hits.
  • Available for MacOS, Windows and iOS (iPad only).

Pricing & Availability

The plugin is available immediately for the intro price of $24 ($39 Reg.) for macOS and Windows and $9.99 for iPad.
