ShinyDirt is largely all about the mod wheel. The mod wheel does something different on each pre-set. A very musical homage to circuit-bent analog synths.

{See video at top of page}


  • 32-bit VST mono synth.
  • 128 presets.
  • Lots of user-defined options.
  • On-screen waveform readout. Looks cool, plus great educational tool.
  • Runs on any 32-bit DAW, and on some 64-bit DAWs (tested and working on 64-bit Reaper, Cubase, and on Sony Acid.).
  • Some of the settings sound beautiful. A lot of them sound extreme. Especially when you move the mod wheel. Sometimes the wheel is crazy, sometimes it's subtle.
  • 2 oscillators, 2 LFOs, choice of what mod wheel does. Mod wheel behaves differently on different presets.

On many presets or user-defined settings, the mod wheel does more extreme things to sound than on many synths. On some, the wheel even works backwards of what would be expected. This yields interesting results and is a boon to ending "the same old thing" sessions.

All values go higher and lower than on most synths. Plus one filter is intentionally hooked up "wrong." Because of this, sometimes things will work well (especially with the mod wheel) on one octave (or even part of an octave) and not elsewhere on the keyboard. But this unpredictability is part of the fun.

Just from the patch names. Anyone with a resilient sense of humor in this dark end of the world deserves credit. Also it sounds like a Korg Prophecy.

This was a nice surprise as it has rather a different approach to sound generation. Still trying it out and seeing what does what but I like what seems to be possible even though the sounds can be harsh and a bit unpredictable, still this is a new adventure in sound experiments. Thanks to the developer for a new look at ways to bend a synth.Read more
