All of our VST plugins are made especialy for learning synthesis. They sound great and have a simple user interface.
You can use them for free, and if you make a piece of music with them, we'd love to recive a copy!

Odyssey

This VSTi plugin is a recreation of the famous ARP Odyssey. It has exactly the same interface and controls as the original, and has no extra frills. But who needs extra frills with the Arp odyssey? One of the most versatile and clever hard wired synthesizers ever needs no frills!

The synthesizer was done with SynthMaker, but uses our own coded filters, envelopes and midi control for that special Odyssey sound.

And best of all, its completely free! Want to learn how to use it? check our courses!

This VSTi plugin is a 4 operator FM/PM (Frequency modulation / phase modulation) synthesizer that is simple, easy to understand. It is capable of synthesizing an array of multiple timbres. You dont have to be an FM expert to get sound right anymore!

The synthesizer was done with SynthMaker, but uses our own coded oscillators, envelopes and midi control for that special FM sound.

And best of all, its completely free! Want to learn how to use it? check our courses!

 
 

TB Strip

This VSTi plug-in is a simplified emulation of a Roland TB-303. We stripped it from its (now useless) sequencer, leaving only the sound controls on and we added a juicy drive button (just for fun!)

The synthesizer was done with SynthMaker, but uses our own coded oscillators, envelopes, filters and midi control for that special TB sound.

This is an oscilloscope. it shows the waveform of the passing audio in real-time. It is very useful for exploring and understanding sound and how it behaves. It is possible to trigger this oscilloscope acording to one of its channels. It comes both as an executable program, and a VST plugin.

The oscilloscope was done with SynthMaker, and is packed with the SynthMaker project inside!
