Leslie Sanford Cobalt

Leslie Sanford has released version 1.5 of Cobalt, a VSTi software synthesizer inspired by many of the digital synthesizers from the 1980s.

Cobalt can sound at times warm and rich while at other times cold and stark. From gentle pads to screaming leads, Cobalt’s gotcha covered.

Changes in Cobalt v1.5

  • Added extensive MIDI Learn capabilities. You can map any CC message to any parameter either manually by choosing the CC message from a list or by putting Cobalt into Learn mode and sending it any MIDI CC message.
  • Added some smoothing to several parameters to minimize zippering when manipulating them via MIDI CC.
  • GUI code rewritten from scratch (though the UI doesn’t look any different).

Cobalt for Windows PC (VST) is available to purchase for $35 USD.

    Updated to v1.5.1:

    – The Large UI is now officially back (and looks the way it should).
    – The controls for both UI versions now have a very fine adjustment mode. While holding SHIFT+CTRL, you can have very fine control over how the knobs and sliders change value. So in all there are three modes: Normal when you manipulate a control with no keys pressed, Fine when you have the SHIFT key held, and Very Fine when you have SHIFT+CTRL held.
    – Fixed a GUI bug where if you clicked on the background of the UI and while holding the left mouse button down moved the mouse across any sliders and/or knobs, they would change values.
