AlgoMusic Czynthia VSTi v2.0-peace-out
CZynthia is a Dual Phase Distortion virtual synthesizer.

Features:

* Two Phase Distortion Oscillator sections each offering two sets of 8 waveforms.
* Three 8 stage envelopes each synth for control of pitch, phase and amplitude.
* LFO (BPM synced or free running) offering 22 waveforms, rate and delay with pitch and phase destinations.
* Pulsar module for algorithmic style pitch/phase modulation. (BPM synced)
* Ring modulation, detune and transpose controls
* Volume and panorama controls for stereo imaging and master volume.
* Scale generator for force scaling of notes. Choice of 8 scales with root key selection.
* Powerful multi FX section offering 7 simultaneous stereo effects: EQ, Rotor, Metal, Wah, Delay, Chorus, Reverb.

Note: While this VSTi is inspired by the original Casio CZ series of synthesizers produced in the 1980s, it does not seek to emulate them.

TDR VOS SlickEQ Gentleman’s Edition v1.2.0 Hy2ro TDR VOS SlickEQ Gentleman’s Edition v1.2.0 Hy2ro
Soft / VST Instruments 26-09-2015
TDR VOS SlickEQ – Gentleman’s Edition takes SlickEQ‘s concept to new heights and adds an exotic "Tilt”-filter flanked by flexible low-pass and high-pass filters. Five distinct EQ models provide a rich set of predefined EQ curves and behaviours for the three main semi parametric filter bands.

SlickEQ GE offers a switchable EQ non-linearity and seven different output stages. These options offer subtle and interesting textures, from the typical "mojo” often associated with high quality analogue audio gear, up to more obvious saturation.

An elaborate auto gain option automatically compensates for changes of perceived-loudness during EQ (within reasonable limits) and a gain-trim feature helps controlling peak overloads with ease. The 64bit multi-rate processing scheme (a.k.a. "internal re-sampling”) practically eliminates typical problems of digital EQ implementations such as frequency-warping, quantization distortion and aliasing.

Beside the primary controls, the plug-in comes with an array of additional helpers: Advanced preset management, a frequency magnitude plot, undo/redo, quick A/B comparison, copy & paste, an online help, editable labels, mouse-wheel support and much more. Finally, SlickEQ GE allows to exclusively process the stereo sum or stereo difference without external sum/difference encoding (see "M/S” microphony).
Key specs and features

Carefully designed 64bit "delta” multi-rate structure

Parametric Tilt filter with optional "V” mode.
Seven output stages: Linear, Silky, Mellow, Deep, Excited, Toasted and Funky
Highly effective loudness compensated auto gain control
Expandable frequency magnitude response display including a realtime analyzer
Stereo, mono, left, right and sum/difference (mid/side) processing options
Tool-bar with undo/redo, A/B, advanced preset management and more

TAL Software GmbH TAL-U-NO-LX-V2 v2.70 VSTi x86 x64-CHAOS TAL Software GmbH TAL-U-NO-LX-V2 v2.70 VSTi x86 x64-CHAOS
Soft / VST Instruments 21-09-2015
TAL-U-NO-LX is a complete rewritten emulation of the popular hardware with a new engine and GUI. Up to date zero feedback delay filters and carefully calibrated controls make this synth a good replacement for the analog device with all the advantages software plugins have. As an addition, the TAL-U-NO-LX also supports portamento and different filter LFO waveforms and some more useful features.

An arpeggiator with different sync modes and hold function is also included. A very fast envelope with a smooth roll-off, emulated inaccuracy and a very smooth filter sound gives this synth the typical sound. The synth was calibrated after a hardware device that's property of TAL.

Features

Self resonating zero feedback delay filter (24dB LP).
Filter range up to ~40kHz (depends on the sample rate).
Calibrated and tuned after TAL's hardware device.
Midi learn / automation for all controlls.
Improved alias free oscillators for an authentic sound also @ 44'100Hz sampling rate.
Arpeggiator with different sync modes (host, midi clock, not on).
Portamento and mono mode.
LFO manual trigger button.
Sustain pedal support.
Up to 12 voices.
New file based preset system for transparent preset management.
More than 300 factory presets by different sound designers (FMR, Particular - Sound, TAL).
Original hardware "Factory Bank A" included.
Indiginus Solid State Symphony v1.4 KONTAKT Indiginus Solid State Symphony v1.4 KONTAKT
Soft / VST Instruments 23-07-2015
The technology of 1979.... Here today!
What would a virtual orchestra have sounded like if all you had to work
with was analogue synthesizers? It was a question that Indiginus felt
compelled to answer. Why? Well, probably because we're not very good
at market research, but also because we believe that composers can
never have too many tools to work with.


The 'orchestra' consists of Strings, Winds, and Percussion sections. Within
each section are elements that have assignable key and velocity ranges,
volume controls, and transposition. Also included are a gated pad effect,
2 programmable pitch modulated elements, bass, and a simple noise
generator rhythm sequencer.

The update includes:

-New improved reverb, which gives the whole instrument a richer and more airy sound!

-Several new PadScape presets, new Pitchmod sounds and patterns, and some new preset nkis.

-Same great flavor!
