El desarrollador Kevin Brown nos ofrece de forma totalmente gratuita su colección de sintetizadores creados con SynthMaker, sintetizadores que emulan a clásicos de Korg, Buchla, ARP, Moog y otros sintetizadores “vintage”…como se aprecia en las imágenes los plugins tienen una interface cuidada hasta el mas mínimo detalla, como única pega, solo están disponibles para la plataforma Windows en versión 32bit.
“These “emulations” are meant only as ‘inspired by’ and ‘based on’, not as accurate or complete emulations, in either features or sound. Most are based on vintage subtractive synths, but there are several FM instruments as well. All are editable form a single page, even the large ‘modulars’. I concentrated primarily on synths not much (if at all) represented in VST form.
- a few based on Buchla modular and Music Easel, but with 2-op FM oscillators, rather than any attempt at Buchla ‘wavefolding’.
- an obscure ARP synth, the Explorer II, and a rough stab at the programming ‘guts’ of the Pro Soloist (without any of the presets).
- a few Roland modulars: a couple based on the System 700’s small ‘Lab’ configuration, a System 100M and a System 500. Also a couple of Roland’s quirky integrated synths: SH-3, and a couple that are mash-ups of SH-5 and SH-7.
- three modulars based on small early Moogs: Synthesizer 10, System 12 and the larger System 35. Also, a little modular that represents the modules one would have to put together to have all the functions of a Minimoog, but with full patchablilty.
- an ARP Odyssey that includes many of the mods commonly done to it.
- an ARP 2600 because the commercial ones are too expensive and have many functional aspects I don’t care for.
- a Yamaha CS80 approximation because although ME-80 sounds terrific, I can’t stand the look of any of its skins, and Arturia’s is nearly impossible to read.
- a few based on u-he’s fabulous creations, just for folks who are interested in playing in a similar playground, but whose computers can’t quite handle the CPU hit.
- and so on…”
