A very nice sounding and interesting synth. I like the semi-modular approach and the ample modulation matrix. A great compromise that offers lots of flexibility without becoming overwhelmingly complicated. I find it still a bit buggy, at this point, so I can't give it the five stars I'm sure it will eventually deserve.

This is easy to use, simple to navigate and sounds both warm and interesting. However, I can get only 6 voices of polyphony out of it, not the 24 in the manual, even using just one oscillator in Unison 1 mode. I wonder what I'm doing wrong?

Odin is very good sounding and open source synth. Its not well known as Surge but it sounds way more warm. It can produce classic analog sounds and has lot of filters which works very well, this is its strongest point.

It has built in amp distortion, delay, phaser, chorus, flanger reverb. It supports 11 Oscillator types and 13 filters, 4 LFO and 4 Envelopes. It needs more envelopes because lot of things can be modulated, more LFO would not hurt but I do not use LFOs so much. It can be called "free Diva".

Weakest part is ARP. Most synth authors are simply unwilling to make proper ARP. This ARP has 16 steps only and you can't set gate and velocity to each step. Just very few synths (Viper, Omnisphere) implements proper ARP with at least 32 steps.

Wake up guys Korg Triton in 90's had 48 steps polyphonic ARP which can do not just basic notes but also note number in chord played and velocity/gate to each step. In dance music we use 1/16 steps - 16 step ARP can play just one bar - not enough for making riff.

Would I use it as my workhorse synth every day? No. Without more envelopes and proper ARP is worthless for me but if you are just starting and do not have these $200 synths yet then its must have.

Un plugin con formante X e Y excelente, lo malo es que el Phaser no es muy presente pero aun así se pueden formar Growls fantásticos.

Great sounding and versatile synth. Indeed one of the best freeware synths out there! One of those synths that you want to tweak and see and hear, what is possible and not one of those rather uninspiring synths or incarnations of what's already been done a dozen times. It fits perfectly into many genres and it will be one of my new go-to machines. Great! Thanks for programming such a nice piece of audio software!.

Awesome synth bro.

It's been an absolute joy beta testing this monster and it has become my favourite free synth. I have been looking forward to it's release and now here it is! Fantastic work wavewarden and thank you for keeping it free.

I really like the flexibility of this semi-modular system. The sound possibilities are fantastic.

I have noted however that it does not seem to remember the "midi learn" assignments for the next session.

Otherwise great work. I expect it to become a staple in my setup, even with the "bug". Thanks.

Midi velocity response is very poor.

The sound is amzing, its like lush synth power that is rich and clean. And it sounds big and mean.

How do you load the Komosa presets above? They have the suffix .odin instead of the expected .osb.
