This synth sounds really good, but the CPU can be a limiting factor. The limited oscillator section (originally designed to be hardware) reminds me of the Arp 2600 a little bit, and there are some flexible routing options that also remind me of the Arp 2600. It has a weird sounding duophonic mode where the oscillators are controlled independently.

Pros:

  • Free of charge.
  • Great sound quality.
  • Duophonic mode is fairly unusual for most synth architecture.
  • Morphing oscillators.
  • Flexible ring modulation.

Cons:

  • High CPU usage (especially when using the Voice Stack feature).
  • Some additional filter options would be nice.
  • Oscillator waveforms are somewhat limited.

Didn't know there was a review section or I would have written this earlier.

The sound "quality" of the Tyrell N6 is phenomenal. This (and the Zebralette) are the two best sounding FREE synths currently available by a long shot. Oatmeal, Crystal, Polyiblit, Synth1 etc.. are all great synth's but they don't have the same "quality sound" as the 2 mentioned.

Both are pretty easy to navigate & use and are capable of more with their single osc configurations than others are with multiple osc's. At first, I couldn't understand why these were available for free UNTIL I ended up purchasing Zebralette's big brother Zebra2. A GREAT marketing strategy yes, but the fact remains, they are both superb and leave very little else to be desired.

To whom it may concern. I am planning to make a YouTube video using your Tyrell Nexus 6 and Zebralette plugins. I am asking permission to use your freeware plugins in my noncommercial tunes and videos. Thank You.

when you download this plugin it comes with a license agreement that says you can use it in commercial and non-commercial works, as that's kind of the point of you getting the plugin. there is no need to ask for permission.

There's a v3 available for some time now. Time to update the KVR DB in this regard? :).

Hi.

Is this the correct place to post a question about the N6?
