The developer isn't kidding about its Juno inspirations. You can test out its faithfulness by dialing in a hoover sound, which it excels in making.
The core sound quality of Tyrell is a mixed bag, as it is based on solid analog modelling, yet it isn't effectively antialiased so you can come across some harshness in the high registries. This sometimes makes me want to close it out and use something else, but the foamy/creamy textures you get when moving its filters over more complex sounds keep me coming back. Aliasing aside, the oscillators and snappy envelopes are brilliant. Be sure to turn on its oscillator drift to go from a DCO Juno sound to more of an old school VCO Juno sound.
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.

Hooj, Try the nexus2 vst. i promise its worth buying if you like this plugin you will like the nexus plugin,
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.
