Dead Duck Deducktion is a subtractive synthesizer, featuring:
Available in VST 2.4 format for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit hosts.
I'm a beginner at synth programming and this VST makes it quite easy to get loads of different sounds without presets. The modulation section is very intuitive, and you can go from thumping bass to shrill leads. Nice interface too.Read Review
Yeah, I didn't like the original GUI, so I made my own (it's available here at KVR) and it's all good for me now! Deducktion still has a rather small quantity of presets, but I think this is the best sounding free soft synth available today. Yes, it is that good.Read Review
edit: way too many requests (I'm sorry)
It could be my go-to synth.
What I appreciate:
- Good quality
- Modulation matrix
- Count of envelopes and LFOs
- Identical OSCs
- Saw waveform is saw waveform
- Light (low CPU usage, flying start)
- Precise and smooth tune params
- Customisable GUI
- No presets
- And that's free.
What I currently really need:
- Modulate everything whith everything
- Fm, AM/ring and sync mods.
- Fix some issues on mod matrix.
Thank you much anyway
BTW Deducktion made me sign up to KVR.
This is a great basic synth, I love the oscillators, very useful for simple sounds like that old 80's style pop music, synthpop, retrowave etc. I would like to add an FM oscillator like in Synth1 and a phase knob, that's what it needs to be perfect. The filter responds really well, warm sound, the GUI is very functional. A lot of bugs were fixed, which is good. Best freeware synth I've used in 2018, 5 stars deserved.Read Review
