Fathom Synth:

Fathom is a new modular software synthesizer designed to meet the growing demand of producers and musicians to create original waveforms and complex modulations.

Wave Table Morphing Oscillator:

Two morphing tables of 16 waveforms each with modulating wave indexes for real-time wave scanning.

The ability to modulate and morph between the two tables creating a 2D scanning array.

Waveforms in the second table can be added or subtracted from the first.

Algorithms include morph, add and subtract, unipolar, bipolar, chop.

Animated graphs show the operand waveform, operator waveform and combination waveform in real-time.

Each waveform can be loaded or hand-drawn using the wave draw interface.

Waveforms can be auto-filled for perfectly smooth transitions between edited wave positions.

Individual waveforms can be saved and loaded, and entire wave tables can be saved and loaded.

Features:

Fully modular signal flow.

7 different types of oscillators including 5 alias free oscillators.

Bezier Curve and Wave Draw Oscillators.

All oscillators include:

  • AM and FM synthesis.
  • Frequency ranged noise generator with built in filter.
  • Harmonic and random distortion section.
  • Detune section with nonlinear modulations and built in chorus.

32 different types of filters.

7 effects including mixer, two chorus, two reverb, phaser, digital delay with 3 channels, built in filters, feedback, and multiple sends.

Modulators: LFO, LFO Draw, ADSR, Multisegment Envelope, Sequencer, Random Sample and Hold, Keyboard Tracking and MIDI control, with up to 64 segments per envelope.

Modulation matrix: unlimited modulations per dial, unlimited dials per modulation.

Exponential and Bezier envelope curves.

The ability to draw your own waveforms.

The ability to export your own waveforms to wav format (pro version only).

Host automation of virtually every control on the instrument.

Over 500 factory presets and 200 waveforms.

The depths of this synth are insane. From the eye candy GUI, to the 137 page E-book/PDF manual that this comes with it's clear that endless amount of thought went into this synth, and considering the constant updates it's clear they still are. Bravo. We don't need a million new synths. Just one, that's very good that get's updated consistently and made better.

Do not know how many soft synths I have. I lost count. Numerous and soon forgotten ones. Some stand out from the crowd. I still use the old Powercore Virus, the relatively new Serum and Omnisphere is my all time favorite. Then Fathom came along. The mono version was free, so even if the closet was already full I thought I should give it a try. Free is free right? What first struck me was the unfamiliar interface. Why did they design it like that? I fumbled around with it for some hours and it grew on me. By the end of the day I was in love. I have never really gone into the programming part of a synth. It seemed so cumbersome. I relied on others to make some presets. But now....one after another. It was more like playing an old video game. Moving all the parts around, connecting them to hear dramatic or subtle differences. Fun! Here you are the hero of the game, producing incredible sound with all the impressive features, FX, knobs and curves.

Well, a GUI is important but it does not make a synth. The SOUND makes a synth. And Fathom does not let you down here either. It is extremely seldom a free product sounds like this. It competes with the ocilators of my most expencive top notch synths. So both SOUND and GUI is GREAT, and did I say it was free??? Once again: The Mono version is free!!!! So free that I took 25USD out of my late granmothers wallet and bought the POLY version. 25USD!!!! For a top notch synth - incredible. I have played it forward and got more thanks than chistmas cards! (And I get a lot of christmas cards).

If you are still wondering if this is for you, try out the free (I said it agian) version. I promise - you won't be going to bed the first three nights.

I love this Synth. It has cool Features and i thank Everett from Seaweed Audio very much for his great Support to run the Plugin on my (older) Mac.

The Modular Concept is powerful to create fantastic new Sounds. I'am since my Childhood an great Fan of Jean-Michel Jarre so i like many innovative and flexible Synthesizers (old analog and newer).

I can only advice to try the Demo (Free Mono) Version.

Best Regards.

Michael.

It's my first review because I am really amazed by this system.
This one is excellent. The workflow once you read the manual is so logical and beautiful designed that it really stands out in the modular system crowd.
First I thought the modulation matrix is somewhat crowded but after reading I wondered why others don't do it that way. The possibilities are endless.
The automation system is so easy that I really did not get it. Click on rulers label and it's there. Wonderful.
OK, from my personal aesthetics' point of view the graphics' design is not my cup of tea and looks a little bit "toyish".
So no real concern. But the layout itself cannot be better.
The only thing I miss is an input for using it as FX chain.
The sound of the oscillators are stainless and building with the modules is absolutely intuitive. Left in, right out, that's it.
I'd exactly no bad issues with Fathom.
Great work.
I feel a little bit guilty for thievery getting this for 5$ on New Years Day so I wrote this serious review..

Very powerful and clean sounding OSCs. Nice per voice distortion and detuning options. Good modulation options.

This is a very deep synth with lots and lots of option, however, at the same time, it has quite a clean GUI that is easy to use.

The developer has excellent customer support with very regular updates.

Exceptional value for money.

I have been using Fathom for only a few months now. I started on version 1.0.7. At this point it is up to 1.0.11. It has a bucket load of features but a few that really grab me are the extremely powerfull envelopes and the built in delay. You can not only draw your envelopes but can double, triple............ and so on giving you a sequencer type feel. The delay is a three headed monster giving you COMPLETE control over left, right and center. This synth is capable of just about everything out there with alot of stuff we havent seen. I can see this being used alot for evolving soundscapes and one finger rhythmic dances. At this point it has a firm direction, is stable and a pleasure to program. Looking forward to the finer details.
