Plogue AlterEgo v1.070-R2R
Alter/Ego is based on the award winning technology featured in chipspeech but instead of targeting Vintage voice technology, it focuses on more ‘modern’ (1990+) singing synthesis algorithms and research.

It is specially tailored for musical needs – simply type in your lyrics, and then play on your MIDI keyboard. It’s a true synthesizer, the sound can be extensively modified for easy and expressive performances.

And more importantly it is FREE!

Voice banks come in various styles and licenses. Daisy is the first bank available and is also FREE.

More voice banks are expected. Please watch this space and follow us on twitter/Facebook for up to the second news.

Daisy is the first voice for Alter/Ego and was made by Crusher-P and Giraffey

chipspeech is a vintage-style speech synthesizer which recreates the sound of famous 80?s voice synthesis chips. It features 7 different voices, each with its own characteristic timbre. It is specially tailored for musical needs – simply type in your lyrics, and then play on your MIDI keyboard. It’s a true synthesizer, the sound can be extensively modified for easy and expressive performances. 

chipspeech also features a circuit bending emulation, letting you not only recreate the insane and chaotic sound of a circuit bent TI speaking device, but also use it in a controlled, musical way.
Rob Papen Blade v1.0.3-R2R Rob Papen Blade v1.0.3-R2R
Soft / VST Instruments 6-03-2016
The initial idea for Blade was born out of the want to have more ‘human input’ into the sound. The classic synthesizer parts for modulation are LFOs and Envelopes. The ‘human input’ is the keyboard we play and controllers like pitch bend or modulation wheel. A XY pad is perfect for the human input, but it controls only the filter and volume... We found this to be too limited. We wanted also to control the ‘harmonics’ of the oscillator...changing the waveform using the XY pad. 

Out of this idea, Blade was born...

At the heart of BLADE, lies the Harmolator. This special oscillator system uses 9 global controls which change the harmonic content (partials) of the waveform.
The Harmolator allows oscillator spreading, fattening the sound and also square / sine wave sub-oscillator. What's more, the sound can be modified further by the 21 per-voice distortions types and 14 filter types.Blade offers total control of the sound over time using an array of different modulation controls.
The most significant of Blade is the central XY screen. Here you can either alter things directly by moving the cursor around, or you can record paths which can be replayed.The recorded path can be looped, bi-directional looped and tempo based as well. Even the speed of the XY recording can be modulated for dynamic changes!
So the XY pad is also an incredibly advanced "human input” modulation source. Furthermore, Blade has the full range of other modulation sources, including a dedicated envelope, LFO and velocity as modulation source for Harmolator controls.
Two FX units featuring all the FX from other Rob Papen products, plus the Arp / Sequencer and an Easy page which allows you to easily control sounds, all add up to an amazingly flexible and useful instrument at the cutting edge of today's synthesizers!

Sonitarium employs a variant of DSF synthesis with aliasing-free oscillators that generate a quadrature stereo signal. Providing up to 200 oscillators per voice, Sonitarium is most suitable for fat pads, drone sounds, and horror music.
Sonitarium was made using Synthedit. The sound engine isn't based on native Synthedit modules, though, but newly coded in C++. 

Features

Aliasing-free DSF oscillators, each generating a quadrature stereo signal.
Up to 200 oscillators per voice. Unison controls to alter the pitches and phases of the oscillators.
Freely selectable polyphony with up to 16 voices.
Text field input for all controls.
Envelope and key tracking controlled volume. Adjustable pitch bend range. 
Freely adjustable Attack, Decay, and Release slopes.
MIDI control of all parameters (CC).
92 presets.
