Oh, i don't know if it's already been mentioned, but perhaps the most popular free VST is 'glitch' http://illformed.org/plugins/glitch/

marvin vst's

not sure about the synths but the 909 fakery has got a satisfactory punch and the 606 seems cool too, even if you swear by warez or expensive emu's at least here the sequencer isn't taking up your precious cpu

I recommend anything by Tweakbench, because of the fact that his plug-ins are efficient, not cluttered in terms of the GUI, and diverse.

For some quality adlib/FM chip sound, I recommend VOPM by Sam. It's a faithful emulation of the Yamaha YM2151 chip:

My first impression was that it was another simple (what many) two osc synth with one filter and one LFO. Section of oscillators rocks. Morphing function of all parameters including the shape of the oscillator is what makes this synth very, very creative piece of software. Today I found Trancedrive http://www.yedey.com...of-trancedrive/:

Posted Image


  • 3 main oscillators
  • each main oscillator supports 6 waveforms: sine, saw, triangle, pulse, saw7, cry
  • the waveform “saw7″ is a supersaw with 7 detunable sub oscillators
  • the waveform “cry” is an experimental waveform, it is built up with several hardsynced saws
  • main oscillator 2 has an additional unisono mode, when it is enabled, the whole oscillator triples its voice and the voices can be detuned from each other
  • the oscillators can be chained (osc1 to osc2 and osc2 to osc3) using FM, PM and sync, these 3 options can also be used at the same time
  • seperate noise oscillator
  • 3 LFOs, each supports 5 waveforms: sine, saw, triangle, pulse, sample and hold
  • the LFOs can be synchronized to the host tempo or run free at a specific frequency
  • each LFO can control multiple parameters of each OSC, you can even assign several LFOs to the same parameter
  • LFO1 can control the filter cutoff
  • 2 Envelope generators (Mod & Amp) with variable shapes
  • the modulation envelope can control multiple parameters of each OSC, and it can also be mixed with the LFOs. Additionally it can control the filter cutoff
  • 3 types of filters: lowpass, highpass and bandpass
  • each filter type can be set to 6dB, 12dB, 18dB and 24dB steepness
  • 9 effects, and they can be used at the same time: gater, chorus, phaser, flanger, distortion, delay, reverb, equalizer, stereo-effects
  • each of the unused parts of the synth is shown with less contrast, so you can focus on the active parts
  • the output of the synth can be clipped to avoid overdriving noise. The clipping is done with a soft limiter, that can be used to compress the whole synth sound (just enable clip and turn up the main volume)


Trancedrive seems to be another synthesizer which like a lot but I recommend to move "shape" while playing note on single oscylator to see how changing the shape of waves generated by the oscillator block. A powerful tool that can be one of the main reasons synthesizers of the many onboard effects and sound quality oscillators.

Atlantis is a unique synthesizer VSTi. It has nearly unlimited possibilities for creating new and exciting sounds! It is also a powerful effects module that can be used to process other audio.

3 true stereo morphing oscilators, with independant width, phase, spread, chorus, tuning, volume, envelope and panning feed into a pair of filters (with your standard algorithms and a lot of unique new favorites), a shaper (distortions and beyond), and a simple room modelling multitap filtered delay system with another pair of selectable filters. The routing of the filters and shaper can also be switched into a variety of configurations for further flexibility.

All the standard waveforms you would expect (sin, square, triangle, saw, noise)- and you can also import ANY waveform you like! Simply add a .wav file with the waveform you want to hear to the Data Folder (as specified in the Config Dialog) - stereo or mono, any samplerate or bitdepth you like, and Atlantis will let you use it for oscilators and LFOs. Samples are upsampled into very high resolution wavetables.

Every slider parameter can be controlled by ANY modulator. LFOs, Envelopes, MIDI Control Data, the current note, velocity, follower, or combinations of them can be used to modulate your sounds into expressive organic creations previously unheard by human ears.

Used to use filterbank by Wok a lot( http://music.service...filterbank.html )
only its is synthedit so/and it sucks cpu(don't know if thats synthedit is the cause), now trying not to use it, or just 1 a track.

Things i like to use are:

All TAL fx + synth
http://kunz.corrupt.ch/

Sq8l synthesizer
http://www.buchty.net/ensoniq/

xoxos effect+synth
http://xoxos.net

easyq
http://www.rs-met.com/freebies.html

drumatic
http://www.e-phonic....s/drumatic3.php

bootsy stuff, specially epicverb

edit:also using voxengo plugins a lot, their free stuff sound so nice i might buy some of their fx stuff, also they have a latency compensation plugin i use alot, because some(most) plugin doesnt seem to report latency, it works great.

http://www.voxengo.com/



really too much to mention, i think you cant have enough flavour to choose from(i have about 750 fx vst says the renoise screen :o ), but then you have to watch out not to drown everything in it :lol:

Something for Linux users. Copypasted straight from KVR:

Togu Audio Line has updated TAL-Reverb-2 to version 1.60, which features a slightly improved algorithm (smoother sound, reduced hearable modulation).

Also, the developer of kxstudio has compiled / ported all JUCE-based TAL plugins as 32- and 64-bit for Linux. They can be download from SourceForge.

Included plug-ins:

* TAl-Dub-3.
* TAL-NoiseMaker.
* TAL-Filter.
* TAL-Filter-2.
* TAL-Reverb.
* TAL-Reverb-2.

Here is my take on it (my most used ones):

Sampler
Shortcircuit 1.1.2 (I mainly used that for drums, before Renoise)
SFZ (mainly for SF2)

Synths
Synth 1 (subtractive)
TAL Noisemaker (subtractive, great for basslines, there is also a Linux port!)
INTRO (wavetable, great for leads, pads)
Minimogue (VA and LUXUS)
TAL Baseline
MDA VSTi (mainly the Piano, Linux version available!)

Effects
Fishfilets (mostly BLOCKFISH, but also SPITFISH)
CamelCrusher
Kjaerhus Classic (especially the Chorus)

That's it for now, I might have missed some, so I might edit this post later again.
