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.

Ichiro Toda has released version 1.10 of Synth1, a free synthesizer instrument plug-in for Windows.

The version history for v1.10 shows some more improvements and fixes.

Changes in Synth1 v1.10

  • The switch which chose the right or wrong of the patch choice from the vst host GUI was added to an optional dialogue.
    • The phenomenon that patch choice mechanism of the vst host side became unstable in occurred frequently. It is the result that expanded the number of the banks to 100. The switch is a thing to avoid this phenomenon.
    • When this switch is on, tone choice is possibility from the vst host GUI; (as before). However, depending on the vst host, a patch is not chosen, and there is a thing kept waiting for several seconds.
    • When this switch is off, you cannot choose a patch from vst host GUI. However, the trouble mentioned above does not occur.
    • It is by default off.
  • BugFix
    • The problem that pingpong delay did not become effective.
    • The problem that failed in the conversion of the patch of Synth1 of the old version.
    • The problem that a patch name did not synchronize with a VST host between Synth1 well.
    • When did over of a mouse in voice status; the problem that mouse shape became the hand shape.

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.

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 patches by Ouroboros

Synth1 v1.07

Ouroboros has released 128 patches for Synth1.

Synth1 is one of those synths that has quite a following, and for a good reason. This 2 Osc VSTi with FM and ring modulation still is one of the best sounding freebies out there in my opinion.

Ouroboros does a wonderful job showcasing the versatility of Synth1, with patches categorized in several sections: Bass, Keys, Arp, Pads, Synth and more.

Here’s a little loop I made with only patches from Ouroboros’ bank (5 instances of Synth1 + Kjaerhus Classic Master Limiter).

Download the full bank of 128 patches below.
