You know, I need another free, SynthEdit synth like I need another hole in the head! But something about iloSynth-1 compelled me to try it. And immediately, I fell in love with this little wonder. It's not a complex synth, but it manages to turn out great sounds with its own analog flavour.
The interface is pretty, good choice of colours and I really like the dials. The bright yellow is clear and easy to reference. I like the fact that the usual SE drop-downs, etc, have been skinned and the interface is large and easy to use.
It's hard to put my finger on it exactly, but iloSynth-1 just sounds good. I can give credit to the developer for including 60 useful presets that display the wide range of sounds you can make with this. What it seems to excel at is amplitude modulation sounds, but basses and leads are strong and prominent. A few twists and turns here and there and you'll be making new patches right away.
The chorus and delay sections sound great and easily had ambience to the patches.
There is no documentation whatsoever. Frankly, it doesn't need it; there's nothing earth-shatteringly different about this synth, and hey, it's free!
I've experienced no stability issues, and the CPU light and reasonable.
All together, a wonderful little freebie. I highly recommend all to try it out. I just can't stop using this loveable synth!
I get some very big sounds from this synth. Easy to use and very musical. iloSynth-1 is featured on 2 songs on ronisageek.com. My songs there are listed with the VSTi's used to create them. I also appreciate the User Interface having a bit of color. Your color choice is easy on the eye. Plenty of usability without having hundreds of knobs and the output is nice and strong. Thank you.
