After the last update, the glitch that was present in some presets is gone and that´s great, because now it sounds just fantastic - at least compared to most of the free FM synths.
Pristine sound and 128 presets full of FM plucks, organs, pads and sequences.
Pretty deep routing options - through main modulation matrix and voices-modulation matrix. 8 pages where you can play with voices settings / up to 256 harmonics / and waveform structures / lot´s of combinations /, DADSR amplitude envelopes, filters / 8 stage + injecting one into another /, fx / phaser-flanger, chorus, delay, 3-band resonators, static HPF /, keyboard settings / lowest-highest note, bender, retrigger /, envelopes / 8 segment graphical /, modulation and submodulation.
For automation you can use the per voice arpegiators and the step sequencer with host sync, semi-tones setting, coarse knobs.
That´s pretty just some of the functions, there is more of them and I would suggest: Go and try it and hear it for yourself.
And I shouldn´t forget the MIDI learn - one of my favourite functions, which is not so common in the freeware category.
GUI is clean / brushed metallic surface with green digits in the matrix / and the pages with controls are set pretty logically, so I didn´t have a problem understanding the synth even without the manual which is not included in the free version / there is only a brief desription on the web page /.
As for the support, I don´t need it and the synth is free so I don´t expect it, but that doesn´t mean there is not any – you can contact the author, so there must be some and as there was an update few days ago, there should be something going on there.
Value for money: It´s free and the Pro version is Donationware and for your donation you get more voices, vibrato control, manual, separate outputs, some more controls. So the value is 100% of the price and maybe even more!Read more
