GR-8 is an 8 voices virtual analog synthesizer with built-in effects and an arpeggiator.
Important: Parameter automation IDs are changed in version 1.2.0. That breaks automation compatibility with previous versions. If you open an old song that had automated (for instance) Filter Cutoff, that automation lane will now automate some other parameter i.e. Envelope Attack. The change is a fix for a mistake that I made by adding new controls in versions 1.1.0 and 1.1.1. Due to my inexperience with newer versions of the plugin development platform that I use, I didn't know automation parameter IDs are automatically set in alphabetical order unless manually specified. My sincerest apologies to everyone whose work is affected by the change. On the brighter side, presets are not affected by this change, so your old presets will sound the same as before.
Caution: Each preset has its own MIDI assignment. If you make a MIDI assignment you need to save the preset. Otherwise, the MIDI assignment you've made will be lost as soon you change the preset. If you want to make your own presets with the same MIDI assignments, you can do it by assigning MIDI controls to the Initial preset, saving a copy of it, and using it as a template for your sounds.

Its one of best synths in "simple" category. It feels and sounds like HW synth from 80s for example Polysix. Sound is very good, I would not guess it is VST from blind listening. Good sound for commercial grade songs, nice unison.
It has good sounding effect unit with analyser and score, it would be good to have it as separate VST.Read Review
This one is a good one. I have a lot of fun with it.
It needs a little time to find wich knob modulates what (like the LFO)...i realy was trying to modify the Theme then, .
but thats maybe a fun for later. Straight forward Design, Clean sound, that Chord Thing holy Cow is awesome.
I realy like the possibillity to modify what happens when u release the key...thats so cool. But i think its a basic Synthesizer thing right? Anyways...
And you have a two-click random Option thats very nice. Random is key.
What I want to see:
All at One - Another Awesome Free Plugin i highly recommend. And i hope for some further Versions or another better Synth by "Phuturetone"
Thank you Sir .Read Review
Sounds great, looks great, controls are intuitive and well thought out. Only issue I have with it is there's no VST version for MacOS which is annoying since I use Bitwig and it doesn't support AU. Didn't remove any stars for that though since it's a limitation of the tools and not the developers choice.Read Review
