Seriously this thing has a good ballsy analog sound-nice and fat. The filter sounds nice and the portamento responds properly (fingered, unequal time) for great sounding MiniMoogish leads. This synth is the ultimate for bass and leads.
The GUI is great, very simple, clean, and easy to use.
The Iblit really stands out in a sea of virtual analog emulating synthesizers.Read Review
I like this synth a lot. The presets are awesome. Just dial one up and there you go. Yesterday I started a cover of Section23's "Looking From a Hilltop" and I came really close to the bass sound used in that track just by using a preset. Which is just as well because... ...in the latest version of FL Studio some of the knobs don't seem to work, particulary the osc knobs 1-3. I haven't tried it in Orion Pro. One could see how programming could be difficult so it's a good thing the presets are good. I'm not much of a programmer anyways. so besides that hiccup, download this for all your synth-bass needs.Read Review
this synth has punch and bite. the sound of this would be incredible if it had a distortion, chorus or delay.. something at the end of the signal chain and a triangle or sine wave for at least one of the oscillators.
the filter is pretty good. it passed the rez test.
the gui is a bit bland for my taste but layed out well.
this review may seem like i not a huge fan of this synth but if these things mentioned above happened this sytnh would be mentioned with the other freeware giants.Read Review
As of late I'd been becoming a cynic in regards to freeware virtual analog VSTi's, I mean let's face it, there's been a lot. Thus I almost never even downloaded Iblit, luckily I paid attention to the positive word of mouth and it had me curious enough to give it a go. I put this up there as one of the best sounding freeware VAs, with the other being Triangle 1 (funny that they're both monosynths). Iblit, was everything I expected from Synth1, minus the polyphony and arpegiator. In fact whereas I was disappointed with Synth1s sound Iblit has done nothing but exceed my expectations. It's got a very nice character, warm, and big, and very analog sounding. There's no hint of alaising in Iblit, but it is not at the expense of high end frequencies that would make it sound dull, no, Iblit sounds great across the board. On paper there's nothing about Iblit that's going to have you jumping for joy, but Iblit's charm is its sound, do not pass up on this one.Read Review
Wow, This synth was a pleasant surprise. When I read the feature list, I pretty much ignored it, since it did not seem to offer anything new, but after hearing people talk about it, I downloaded this beast. Wow. Simple interface, but extremely function, this is a monosynth, which has one great asset. The way it sounds!!! IBlit sounds extremely warm and mmmm, vintage. It also complements the more "in your face" character of Triangle I and II perfectly and is currently my preferred synth for analog-style basslines. The presets provide a very good idea of the way the synth can be used. I have not had to use the documentation or customer service, since I have not had the need to, as Iblit is about as intuitive a synth as it gets. Everything is neatly laid out, and easy to understand. The portamento is sweet, as are the filters. As funky mentioned, there seems to be no hint of aliasing.
The one big negative is a lack of MIDI control. This synth would really do well with MIDI learn.
If you haven't, try Iblit out. It is really worth the time.Read Review
