excellent synth, sounds great. perfect for all sequencer lines, with multiple
instances running. would like to see more from this dev in the future, taking
the concept a bit further. top-notch go-to machine. (would be nice to set different
background colour, too, next time ;) )

That's also what we think and hope for (and more). Would be awesome to have a highpass filter and some more osc-options/waves f.e.

I actually have grown to love this VST. The Organ 1 sound preset is so phat it's just awesome!

I hope for more...

Sounds great, especially the demo track on y'alls site. any chance of an OS X version for when I'm away from my Windows rig?

Just discovered the Charlatan synth, and I must say that for a free VST I am very impressed.

The best characteristic of this synth is that it is extremely simple and easy to use.
I like the sound especially playing keys and basses in poliphonic mode.
Would be fine add modulation to the LFO with the Mod. Envelope.

Great sounds from a neat synth.
Will their be a better preset browser in future?

Track made with 12 instances goes to show the scope of a lovely plugin.

Hello dominic I downloaded the 2.0 b file, except that it is version 1.4.1.

Im having trouble loading preset banks... I wanna use Charlatan in a DAW called Stagelight, but there is no button in the host to open complimentary files, like these preset files.
In Ableton it was easy to do because it offers a button to open preset files, but still, the presets won't show up in Stagelight. Is there another way to add presets?? I just don't see how within the GUI in Charlatan?

Please add the key tracking for the volume. I mean the key tracking that makes the volume for the notes different. Like the higher the note the lower the volume and vice versa.
Similar to the key tracking for the filter.

it ought to be possible to set up a multitimbral charlatan array with some sort of MIDI filtering and routing. i'll bet Reaper could handle that.

Have just downloaded and instaled charlatan as i was its a good synth for a beginner so looking for a tutorial or help with using it.

this is an incredible instrument that has replaced (the previous king of freeware synths) for me. Charlatan is so ergonomic, easy to navigate, almost too simple, and it is almost impossible to make it sound bad. It is refreshing that it is not yet another clone of some other synth, and that it is a sincere attempt to deliver the goods without getting ahead of itself in terms of usability and expected behavior.
