de la Mancha releases styrofoam
de la Mancha has released styrofoam, a freeware stylophone emulation VST instrument for Windows PC.
styrofoam is a lovingly rendered emulation of the classic ROFL Harris endorsed analog synth of yesteryear. Take a nostaligic stroll in soft-focus, sepia-toned memories, when summers lasted for 16 months and you could still buy Penny Chews for a penny. Bring back the sounds of living room renditions of your favourite hits, in splendid monophonic square-wave glory with this faithful emulation, minus the crappy vibrato, that was, let’s face it, crap.
- one waveform, but a mighty fine one
- no GUI controls at all
- 4 presets, covering the full range of cleanliness
- TruANAL® technology used to provide authentic pitch variation
- no filters
- no envelopes
- no LFOs
- no mod matrices
- no crappy vibrato
- er, that’s it, what more do you want?
