"At the heart of GForce‘s impOSCar3 lies the design of the legendary British hardware synth OSCar®. Like the original, its hybrid architecture combines the precision of digital oscillators with the warmth of analogue filters, providing a wide range of sonic possibilities.

Craft expansive, lush, dark or ambient pads, resonant bells, and precise leads with this exceptional recreation. The finely tuned filter, aligned with the new wavetable editor, blends the best digital clarity with an unparalleled analogue richness. If that’s not enough, switch to poly-unison for a true wall of sound. Prepare to be surprised."


impOSCar3‘s oscillators have been augmented with fully editable 256-step wavetables, drawn as shapes or edited as partials.

We’ve added 450+ new factory Patches and our powerful browser to allow easy navigation through the vast array of included patches. Over 1800 in total.

Additionally, 4 new macros, a new reverb, an improved layout, a user designable LFO editor, aftertouch control, undo & redo, a fully scalable UI and more. Finally, we’ve simplified the operation of the instrument whilst keeping all its depths and compatibility with legacy impOSCar2 patches."

PowerStrings for MSoundFactory - Orchestral Manoeuvres in the DAW

video upload by meldaproduction

Press release follows:

MeldaProduction pushes PowerStrings as MSoundFactory instrument tailored towards quickly crafting symphonic strings for modern pop or cinematic productions

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC: following in the must-have footsteps of its DreamMachines (so-called VIRTUAL ANALOG DRUM DESIGNER) and Meldway Grand (software grand piano) as premium instruments for MSoundFactory, itself held in high regard as arguably the most powerful modular virtual instrument platform out there today by effectively allowing users to create their own instruments (alternatively available as MSoundFactory LE — providing access to all the sounds and instruments included with its bigger brother, but without access to the editing screen — and also for free as the self-explanatory MSoundFactory Player with only a few sounds included, although users can choose to purchase premium instruments), music production and audio processing advanced tools-maker MeldaProduction is proud to announce availability of PowerStrings — pushed as its next MSoundFactory premium instrument, this time tailored towards quickly crafting symphonic strings suited to the fast-paced production world of modern pop or cinematic music — as of May 13...

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the DAW
As an orchestral powerhouse, PowerStrings represents MeldaProduction’s latest MSoundFactory premium instrument, this time tailored towards quickly crafting symphonic strings suited to the fast-paced production world of modern pop or cinematic music. The timeless elegance of symphonic strings are creatively combined with a contemporary twist — to deliver rich and vibrant string sounds designed to instantly elevate tracks. Indeed, its streamlined interface and intuitive controls allow users to effortlessly add lush string arrangements to their compositions without slowing down their creative flow.

An assortment of ARTICULATIONS
PowerStrings proffers an assortment of ARTICULATIONS, ranging from smooth SOFT LEGATO to crisp SPICCATO settings, so users can achieve the perfect expression for any musical idea. It is possible to speedily switch between them during a live performance using a controller keyboard’s lower keys, or even enable multiple articulations at the same time. The premium instrument in question also allows for independent pitch and volume per articulation, which is ideal for extremely easy layering, while all ARTICULATIONS have access to detailed — Attack, Hold, Decay, Sustain, and Release — envelope settings.

Strings should not necessarily always sound like strings — certainly in the context of modern pop or cinematic music production. PowerStrings’ CREATIVE ‘tab’ takes its users into a brave new world of sound, one where they can, for example, make the strings sound like a synth using the CONVOLUTION settings. Similarly, FM (Frequency Modulation) controls are also available, as is control over HARMONICS. Applying a pleasant-sounding DIFFUSION to the proceedings is, likewise, all part of getting creative.

Noisy 2 - Walkthrough Video

Press release follows:

After the successful launch of Osmose, MPE expert company Expressive E continues to expand its sound ecosystem with Noisy 2. Built for expression, Noisy 2 offers a new MPE mode that goes way beyond regular MPE integration. Its workflow was built for intuitive and expressive sound design, unleashing novel playing possibilities. To match its next-gen MPE abilities, Noisy 2 is powered by an outstanding sound engine based on new acoustic and analog resonators. This synth was made to be expressive with any MPE or classic MIDI controller and brings a brand new expressive experience for sound designers and musicians.

Unlocking new playing gestures for MPE users

At the heart of its MPE mode, Noisy 2’s expression blocks offer new playing possibilities for MPE users with trig modes.

Inspired by its Osmose experience, these Trig modes are a new, powerful, and playful way to trigger envelopes: add sound impulses by accelerating your gesture downwards (push), upwards (lift), or alternating up and down (shake) at any point within the key’s travel.

Listen to the new musical possibilities unlocked by Noisy 2’s MPE mode here.

Easy expressive sound design

Noisy 2 has been built to make the expressive sound design experience fun and intuitive.

Its workflow enables musicians and sound designers to intuitively choose their own way of interacting with the sonic dimensions of any preset. With a few clicks on the expression blocks, users can find the perfect balance between Pressure, Aftertouch, and the envelope generator to refine their personal expressive playing experience.

Producers and musicians can now integrate new motions into their projects by sculpting sounds directly with their hands and fingers.

On top of deep MPE integration, Noisy 2 offers various ways to simply and creatively add motion to sounds. With both classic MIDI and MPE controllers, the Expression Control section can now deeply alter each layer of Noisy 2 and its two FX slots with a simple turn of a knob.

"Developed in collaboration with iconic and multiple-award-winning film composer Hans Zimmer, The Legend HZ builds on the legacy of its predecessor, The Legend.

The result of this collaborative effort is an analog modeled software synth which is uniquely positioned for use in modern film scoring and music production applications. Most importantly, it retains this position while faithfully recreating the sonic characteristics of the original hardware.

The Legend HZ has been designed with great care and attention to detail, so that no opportunities were missed to create a software synth which is both highly usable and insanely versatile. It is at heart the product of the combined knowledge of a genre-defining composer and Synapse Audio’s experience emulating an industry-defining synthesizer.

Building on the success of The Legend, we’ve teamed up with Hans Zimmer to mark new ground in analog modeling synthesis. Multiple features have been added to The Legend HZ that were previously unavailable with The Legend. These include an additional three oscillators (and with them an added polyphony setting), a modulation matrix, a 32-step sequencer, an MSEG for added modulation controls, and an expanded effects section.

The Legend HZ even contains a fixed filter bank that was modeled after Hans Zimmer's personal Vintage 914 Fixed Filter Bank, an exceptional and rare piece of hardware.

Moreover, 200 factory presets developed jointly by expert sound designer Kevin Schroeder and Hans Zimmer have been added. The factory soundbank gives anyone access to a wide range of cinematic-style sounds, while The Legend HZ itself provides access to some of the very tools used by them.

The Legend HZ is available in VST®, AAX and Audio Unit formats, and supports MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE), as well as the Native Kontrol Standard (NKS).

"This is a collection of 12 devices for making rhythmic music in Ableton Live 12. They are some of the first Max for Live MIDI Tools, which is a new class of Live device that generates and transforms MIDI clips.

I’ve always liked to make complex rhythmic music, but in the past I found the piano roll in Live to be clunky and tedious to use. MIDI Tools resolve this problem by allowing us to create simple devices that automate processes that would be tedious or impossible to execute manually. Every device in this collection is designed to help you make exciting, novel rhythmic music quickly and playfully.

The 'quickly and playfully' is really important to me. For me, making electronic music has always been about getting a pattern running, listening to it, then tweaking it with whatever knobs and sliders are available to me. Working this way puts you in a sort of dialog with the machine, where you’re acting, then listening, then acting, then listening, and so forth. This process works best when the cycles are fast, which means that the tools have to be fun and easy to use. They have to deliver results quickly.

I could summarize the practical value of these tools with three statements:

They generate ideas to get my creativity flowing

They all you to create rhythms (such as nested rhythms, rallentandos, and polyrhythms) that are very difficult to create using the piano roll interface

They help you create variations on rhythmic and melodic ideas, to make your music varied and interesting. I’ve also found that the power of these devices really emerges when you use them in serial workflows. By this I mean that you start with some initial MIDI (maybe from a Generator, or maybe not), then process the MIDI with several different transformers.

You can see an example of a serial process in THIS VIDEO, in which I create some rhythmic containers using the Blocks generator, then used the Divs transformer to subdivide those containers to create a new rhythm, then used Feel to dial in the groove. There’s tons of ways to mix and match the devices, which means lots of space to develop your own favorite approaches.

These devices all work with Ableton 12’s new Scales feature. When a scale is enabled on the MIDI clip, the device will only produce notes that are in key. If you disable the scale, then you can work chromatically. The devices are also aware of Live’s themes, so your devices will always match the look and feel of your Live set."

Testing Nakst Integrate - Classic Hardstyle Lead

video upload by Eyezer Productionz | Synths & Audio

Note Nakst was first introduced a year go.

"Introduction (from the manual):

As technology has improved, it has become possible for manufacturers to produce increasingly complex synthesizers. This has led to the creation of synths that trade off easeof-use for maximum sound design potential, spreading hundreds upon hundreds of options and parameters throughout dizzying interfaces, full of tabs and menus. They provide oscillators and filters with such immense algorithmic precision that any soul or character is stripped away before it has a chance to flourish in the sound. Integrate is not like that.

Integrate has been designed with the goal of creating an old-school virtual analog that has just as much personality as any of the classics, paired with a fantastic user interface that makes exploring the sonic possibilities an effortless pleasure. It cannot do everything, but this is intentional; limitations breed creativity. No longer will you spend hours scrolling through lists of wavetables, paralyzed by the impossible task of deciding which is the best to use – a question that has no right answer. Instead, Integrate has a simple two-page layout where every parameter has been selected for its unique axis of inspiration. Every dial, slider and button is waiting to delight you as you delve into a world of aural possibilities.

Many thanks to fdigl for providing me a NFR license for this plugin! Next video will feature some custom patches made by me."

"The old-school virtual analog synthesizer: reimagined and perfected.

A synthesizer optimized for creativity.

Integrate follows in the footsteps of the virtual analog classics we still love today, bringing together a straightforward user interface with an intricate and colorful sound engine.

Four mighty oscillators.
The four main oscillators come equipped with a selection of 74 waveforms and a flexible noise generator.
The traditional waveforms (sine, sawtooth, square and triangle) all have a specially chosen parameter that can be modulated, allowing you to creating evolving sounds. The noise generator has tweakable color, and it also supports key tracking for an effect reminiscent of early game consoles.
Also featuring FM, RM and hard sync, there's a world of possibilities waiting to be unlocked in these oscillators.
There's also a sub oscillator sporting three waveforms, ready to quickly beef up your patch.

Have it your way.
Integrate lets you configure the character of the oscillators, giving you the power to shape the sound of your patches from the very start of the signal path.

Pick between the “Clean” rendering mode for a modern touch, or the “Digital” mode to add a gritty punch to your sound.

Make anything super.
Oscillators A and B both sport a unison section, letting you turn a simple waveform into a 7 voice beast. Configure the detune and mix, or enable “Stereo” to spread the voices across the channels. You'll soon discover how much of a monster Integrate is at fat, anthemic sounds, perfect for mesmerizing listeners of any genre.

The latest technology.
Integrate is available in the new CLAP plugin format, boasting advanced features like non-destructive polyphonic parameter modulation and note stacking. We're proud to join its community of developers who are pioneering the latest in audio technology.

Information, only when you need it.
To keep the interface compact and free from distractions, Integrate keeps extra information about parameters neatly tucked away in popups that only show when you're interacting with the relevant controls.

Waveforms, envelopes, frequency spectrums all pop up as soon as you need them, and then instantly hide away once you're done with them.

Explore new territory.
Integrate isn't an emulation of an existing synth. Instead, it's a brand new design, waiting for you to explore what it's capable of. Dive into a world of characterful oscillators, screaming filters, chaotic LFOs, and dreamy reverbs. There's bound to be something that'll captivate your imagination.

Tela – Modal Synthesizer

video upload by Fors

Tela – Walkthrough

video upload by Fors

"Tela orchestrates a vast array of resonant peaks, intertwined to form a critical mass of sound. It models nothing – it's a synthesizer for the here and now, to discover and create anew.

In a careful balance of depth and immediacy, Tela explores the inherent character and capabilities of modal synthesis. Like a practical joke, Tela bends a myriad of partials into perfect symmetrical waveforms only for them to dissolve into otherworldly timbres and textures mere seconds later. There are no rules.

Modal synthesis
Imagine hitting a thin piece of metal, a piece of glass or the membrane of a drum– the material vibrates and rings out with its inherent timbre, affected by the motion of the impact and the strength of the hit. This is the basis of what modal synthesis recreates.

MYTH - Preset Demo

A Living Beast

MYTH was built to create the joy and inspiration we feel when playing with hardware. Instead of “programming” sounds you create sounds by exploration and tweaking. The sound is rich and organic, and the entire system acts like one organism.


In classical synthesis, oscillator waves are mostly static and you add filters and modulators to "program" all the variations to make the sound organic and interesting. MYTH offers a paradigm shift: drag and drop audio and it will be re-synthesised as an IRIS. The inherent variations and richness of the sample can now be exploited with the TRANSFORMER dials. Of course - you can also add classical LFOs, envelopes or filters as much as you want. will rarely feel the need!

Look Mum, no Cables

Modular systems are so powerful, but also complex and easily confusing. MYTH has modules, but no cables: like in a pedal board the modules are simply chained from left to right. Insanely powerful and unbeatably simple!

Weird and Wonderful

You can use MYTH as a virtual analog subtractive synth, create shimmering metallics, add colourful acoustic resonances, create glittering grain clouds ... or do all at the same time. From fragrant pads to striking kicks - MYTH can do any sound with ease. And if you prefer to ride a wild horse: there are things like ORBIT, GLURP or ATARI PUNK - weird and wonderful new stuff.

The Fastest Workflow in the West

Let's be honest: sound design can be tedious, and we all love tweaking presets! MYTH goes one step further with a randomisation system on steroids: for example you can freeze sections to keep them unchanged. Or you "breed" new presets from a selection of parent presets. Or you take a sample and then browse through presets to put them over your sample like a dress. It's incredibly easy, fast and fun!

Full Specs

Advanced organic re-synthesis based on machine learning.
More than 700+ presets created by more than 10 sound designers and artists.
Intuitive modular system.
Trainable resonators (by dropping a sample).
Virtual analog filters.
Creative midi effects.
Full MPE support.
Build-in tutorial system.

Soniccouture Releases Kora: 21 String African Harp For Kontakt Player NKS

Andre Louis: Kora Improv With MIDI PLayer video upload by Soniccouture

"Andre Louis improvises with the built in 'kumbengo' MIDI backing generator in Soniccouture's Kora VI."

via Soniccouture

A beautiful & fascinating African instrument, the Kora is hard to classify. With 21 strings and a cow-hide resonator, it's a type of bridge harp, but with some lute or guitar DNA in the mix.

The kora is made from a gourd, which is cut in half and covered with cow hide. This forms the resonator of the instrument. There are 21 strings, suspended by a double notched bridge - 10 on one side, 11 on the other. This is typical of a double harp and it is classified as such. However, because the strings originate from a 'neck' and cross a bridge into a resonator, this also makes it a lute.

Soniccouture’s VST version is incredibly playable and versatile, featuring a MIDI pattern player for authentic accompaniment.

€89 (€129) | $89 ($129)

Until May 15th 2024. Price as marked on website, no code required. Offer excludes other discount codes.

"Hey Guys & Girls 👋

It’s been a while but I just wanted to drop in to give you some updates on our project

Osirus can now load the Access Virus A/B/C Firmware using the drop down menu in the top right of our GUI and you can switch between models on the fly, the stability and performance of the plugin has also been improved

We have also overhauled the patch manager which you can read more about using the link below

Vavra (Waldorf Micro Q)

Vavra has also had the same treatment as Osirus using our new style of patch manager and some performance updates

OsTirus (Access Virus Ti)

We are happy to announce that our Virus Ti emulator is not far from release, it includes the ability to switch to the Snow model also which only uses one DSP rather than 2

It’s being heavily tested by our loyal supporters currently and as soon as known bugs are squashed it will be made public

AUDIOKIT'S NERD SYNTH A2X vs Clavia's Nord Lead A1

video upload by MATTHEW FECHER

Follow-up to Electronisounds Audio's video posted here. The app is now available.

"Does it sound close? It’s only a $5 app! Nerd Synth is not a hardware clone & has no affiliation with Nord/Clavia. Nerd Synth should be thought of as a brand new synth, reimagined for mobile! But it can sound similar..."
