Synth1 VSTi

Ichiro Toda has updated Synth1 to v1.07 (not beta anymore).

My Japanese is a bit rusty so I can’t say what changed exactly, but obviously it has to do with the Play Mode, the Phaser effect and the GUI.

  • Play Mode
    • ユニゾンステレオ化及び、stereo spreadつまみの追加
    • ユニゾン時のピッチ(note単位)調整つまみの追加
  • Effect
    • Phaserの追加
  • GUI
    • リサージュ図形スイッチの追加
    • 全体的な描画性能の改善
  • その他内部処理改善等

Ichiro Toda Synth1

Ichiro Toda has released version 1.12 of Synth1, a freeware virtual synthesizer plug-in for Windows.

Changes in Synth1 v1.12

  • External bank (ZIP file):
    • Now able to read ZIP file of compressed .sy1 files.
    • Now able to select it from the patch selection window of Synth1 only by putting the zip file on the external bank folder (default is “zipbank”).
    • Two or more folders can be included in one zip file with the hierarchy.
    • It is not possible to write it in an external bank. It is only for reading.
  • The preservation place of the set up information was changed from the Windows registry to the ini file:
    • The event that the set up information was not preserved on 64-bit OS or it was not possible to refer occurred.
    • Therefore, when the setting of existing Synth1 is succeeded, it is necessary to execute set succession tool (reg2ini.exe).
    • The ini file is “APPDATA\Daichi\Synth\synth1.ini”.
  • GUI:
    • The method of selecting the bank in the patch selection window corresponding an external bank was changed to the tree view form.
    • Memo (readme.txt) of each bank folder was confirmed and it preserved it in the patch selection window.
    • It was able to be set whether to use a transparent window on the patch selection screen etc. by an optional dialog.
  • Sound Engine: High-pass/Low-pass filter was added to Delay’s feedback loop.
  • BugFix: Problem that slider was displayed in LCD parts at setting that doesn’t use slider window.

Synth1 is available to download as a freeware VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.

Ichiro Toda Synth1

Ichiro Toda has released version 1.11 of Synth1, a free VST synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Changes in Synth1 v1.11

  • Sound Engine:
    • The sub oscillator was added:
      • The same pitch as oscillator1 or one octave under can be selected.
      • When OSC1 is eight multiple unison, the sub-oscillator becomes similar, too.
      • FM modulation also influences the sub-oscillator as well as OSC1.
      • The sub-oscillator doesn’t influence the AM modulation.
      • When the amount of the sub-oscillator is raised, the entire volume is automatically adjusted not to grow.
      • The wave pulse of the sub-oscillator always becomes a square wave regardless of a pulse width parameter.
    • The saw wave was changed from rising type to the descent type:
      • To operate the sub-oscillator effectively, it changed.
      • The amplitude value by 0 phases changed from 0 to +1.
    • The accuracy of the envelope of Amplifier has been improved.
    • The limiter algorithm of Filter is changed, and the noise has been improved only a little.
    • The performance of OSC1 at eight unisons has been improved a little.
  • System requirements:
    • It did not operate in CPU that did not support SSE2:
      • It seems to cause the expansion of the source code when keeping supporting it any further. To our regret, it was assumed operation off the subject.
      • The error message is displayed in the upper part of the panel when operating with CPU that doesn’t correspond, and the sound is not generated.
  • Small improvement and change of GUI:
    • A part of objection of the parameter name was corrected.
    • The patch selection window etc. were shut with the escape key.
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Problem of operation of sustaining pedal.
    • Problem that old FM setting value remained at voice trigger.
    • Problem that loudness at unison has changed in old version.
    • Problem that gain knob of Amplifier did not occasionally work.
    • Problem that patch change with program change spin button was not made good after it writes it in another bank.
    • Problem with thing that Synth1 window flickers according to environment.
    • Problem that position where parameter selection window etc. are displayed does clip to primary monitor in multi-monitor environment.

Synth1 is available to download as a freeware VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.

Ichiro Toda Synth1

Ichiro Toda has released version 1.0.9 of Synth1, a free synthesizer instrument plug-in for Windows.

The English version history isn’t always too clear but it looks like some important fixes and improvements have been made.

Changes in Synth1 to v1.0.9

  • A phase control function was added.
    • The “phase” knob in the Oscillatos section immobilizes phase relations in the trigger of oscillator 1 and oscillator 2 and adjusts it. The phase is not fixed if I finish turning a knob to the left (like conventionally).
    • The “phase” knob in the Voice section immobilizes phase relations in the trigger of oscillators done unison and adjusts it. This knob should not be effective unless I immobilize phase in an oscillator section.
    • I think that I am easy to make the base sounds with a feeling of weight if I adjust the parameter mentioned above and the number of the unison voices, the unison detune.
  • The number of the polyphonic was expanded to 32.
    • The number of the polyphonic became the parameter every patch.
  • The number of the unison voice was expanded to 8.
    • Regardless of the voicing mode, you got possible to set the number of the unison voices with less than eight freely.
  • The assignment function to LFO of modulation wheel was improved.
    • You can assign major MIDI control change and the channel after touch to arbitrary synthesizer parameter.
    • I coped with a sense to the minus direction.
  • I changed effect of the unison mode knob exponentially.
    • It is easy to have come to do control of the small detune width.
  • Small improvement / a change of GUI
    • It was easy to look and changed the fonts such as patch select windows.
    • The color of the LCD was changed to be able to brighten a little.
    • I made drawing of the LED simple and improved easiness in seeing.
    • The panel size of the default became 150%.
    • Voice status (disabled / key on / key off / ready) was displayed.
    • I revised some words of the dialogue.
    • The Lissajous indication function was abolished.
    • The size of the panel was expanded to 250%.
  • BugFix
    • The problem that a screen flickers for an instant when I carry out a change to preset in Reaper.
    • The problem that all parameters were not displayed in a dialogue of the MIDI control assignment.

Synth1 is available to download as a freeware VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.

Free Synth1 soundbank: ACK

Stephan Müsch (Rsmus7/Etienne) has created ACK (ambient construction kit), a soundbank for Synth1.

ACK is aimed at ambient music and contains a wide range of leads, pads, textures, rythmic patches, SFX, basses, percussion and synth sounds: 128 presets in total.

Check this demo song of 10 minutes for a live recording of some 40 presets in this bank and this song was done entirely with sounds from the ACK soundbank. (Update 26-05-2008: Stephan’s mp3s were hosted on Panicnow, which has ended its service).

Ichiro Toda Synth1

Ichiro Toda has released version 1.08 of Synth1, a free virtual synthesizer instrument plug-in for Windows.

Synth1 is a software synthesizer for computer music use. It is VSTi compatible. The current version is freeware. Functionally it is modelled on the Clavia Nord Lead 2 Red Synth.

Changes in Synth1 v1.08

  • DXi version was discontinued due to difficulty of development environment maintenance.
  • Synth1 installer was discontinued. Instead a tool (initsetteings.exe) for setting Windows registry configuration is included.
  • Number of the banks was expanded to 100. The setting initialization tool sets to bank00 – 09, but does not set bank10 – 99. Folders have to be prepared manually for use with bank10 – 99 (setting in optional dialog).
  • Fixed: MIDI tab of the optional dialogue was replaced without permission.
  • Fixed: Program change error.

Synth1 is available to download as a freeware VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.
