Triple Cheese doesn't use any of the classic synthesis techniques – subtractive, FM or additive – but various forms of comb filter i.e. very short chromatically tuned delays. The three cheese modules in a row either generate their own signal, or process the output of the previous module.

One of the best free Synths with a special "crazy" concept, just cool sounding soft synth / virtual DSP tech from Urs Heckmann from U-He - in a quality known from their absolutely "synth flagship" Zebra2. The three self oscillating comb filters are bringing "cheese" on your face ;)
Ideal for people for who Zebra2 is just overkill in flexibility, features and - not at least - "knobs" but looking for professional synth sound.
Like to use it where Zebra2 is "to much" in a mix.
One point less of for lacking AAX / Pro Tools >=11 plugin format - hope that will follow in the next time as for the (free too!) Podolski synth from U-He where AAX64 is in beta.Read more

Thanks, thanks, thanks a lot, Urs to have created this strange, funny and lovely synth... And it's been many years already.
Seven years later it still remains today one of my favorites to play progressive rock and "disco-ish" old style tunes! Capable of long dark atmospheres as well as nice sound for rythmic and for melodic themes.
And all that with a totally different type of synthesis than the usual methods, simply by experimentations around the comb filters, the LFOs, the envelopes and the awesome phaser, flanger, delay, reverb and chorus. And all that three times. TripleCheese is a three synths in one which are mixable! Experimenting and finding lovely sounds (simple but very nice) is always for me an afternoon time of rest at the sun, spent to enjoy and find easily lots of inspirations to create little funny tunes. It is as well a funny game as a real tool for work.
I really love it. And played with Zebralette and Podolski, it allow to create very original funny tunes.
Really one of my prefered! And probably for a long time yet.Read more
