Vital is a spectral warping wavetable synthesizer.
Discover how warping the harmonic makeup of a wavetable can completely create a new set of sounds. Stretch, shift, smear and skew harmonics up, down and around the spectrum to explore new timbres and create sounds you didn't think possible with wavetables.
See how everything works while you play in this visual synth. Vital has animated graphical displays when you need them. Everything moves in real-time so you can see what's going on behind the scenes.
Quickly design sounds with an optimized drag-and-drop modulation workflow. The modulation preview gives you an idea of what things will sound like before you drop the connection. With this, you can try modulating different destinations by dragging around the screen.
Discover new design techniques using Vital's unique features like stereo-modulation. Stereo split an LFO to have the left channel's modulation delayed from the right or give slight stereo time differences to an envelope to create wider stereo effects.
What can I say, that 99 percent of these other excellent reviews haven't said?
I absolutely LOVE this synthesizer.
It is a staple in my studio and will be for an indefinite amount of time.
I was so impressed, I bought the Pro version for a mere $80.
Matt Tytel has programmed an absolute beast of a synthesizer that you should definitely have in your studio.
It's not just "Good-because-it's-free", it's more like "How-can-this-astounding-synth-possibly-be-free?"
I say that Matt deserves your money. I reckon you would probably be more than happy to support him too, about five minutes after installing it.
Tons of modulation options and some awesome morph stuff with the wavetables.
Text-to-wavetable is a really cool and useful feature for sound creation.
The Spectral Morph feature is clever.
10/5 stars. I cannot recommend this highly enough.
Look up my username on Soundcloud to hear it in action, as I use it for 90 percent of my synth parts.
Its cool, like a knock of of Serum. BUT. Whats with the no support for free virgin, you cant even post a topic in their forum....
I'll keep my 25$. edit: Also the osc phase is totally unusable for a psytrance style bassline. Its all over the place, like it doesnt recognize) phase position at all. The wave text editor is pretty neat though, and the effects arent to shabby.
Filter isnt that great either. I really just dont like all the loopholes for a pro version, i really dont.
Not sure what the hype is all about TBH.Read Review
a synth at this scale as a free plugin. holy fuck. ofc i give it 5 stars. and honestly, well deserved as well. i have a really hard time actually finding aspects that i find worse than in serum without being pedantic. an example would be that is suffers from the typical sensitive mode mouse-event issues of juce plugins. but as i said: pedantic af. here the thigns that i love most about this synth:
1. the fact that it has a speech synthesizer for wavetable creation. how sick is that?
2. the parameters next to each oscillator which are used to really smash the wavetable into whole other directions. it's a bit like serum's warp modes, but 2 of them and with way fancier options.Read Review
Amazing and powerful synth, lots of features (modulation and sound fx) and beautiful and inspiring user interface.Read Review
Lots of functionality and modulation capabilities, smooth GUI. Only downside is it sounds rather thin. Mad props to Matt Tytel for releasing it for free. All in all, it may not be able to stand toe to toe with the "big boy" synths, but for it's great features it's a superb beginner/learner's softsynth.Read Review
