Saltline Ichi

Saltline has released version 2 of Ichi, a free virtual analog synthesizer plug-in for Windows.

Completely rebuilt, Ichi has evolved into a powerful addition to any plugin collection.

Newcomers to synthesis will find the layout mirrors the signal path for easy navigation and a clear understanding of how to manipulate Ichi’s sound.

Patches can be created quickly for stock, bread and butter sounds. That’s not to say that you can’t dig deeper into this humble instrument, featuring multiple modulation sources and 24 destinations, the sonic possibilities are endless. Ichi’s oscillator layout will be echoed throughout saltline’s future, synthesis based, instruments allowing the user to understand clearly what their parameter tweaking will effect.

Overall, Ichi is great for performing day to day sound tasks whilst still giving the user instant access to interesting tones and timbres.

Ichi 2 is available to download as a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC.

    This is great! The dev came up with a new version using the latest Synthedit build. It comes with some mixed feelings, though… more controls usually lead to more confusion, but I salute the dev for the help screen included with the plug-in. Great job! :)

    I liked version 1 because it was something different. What caught my attention were the 4 envelopes and the delay line for each oscillator. I started getting rather single-minded with it, because I liked the rhythmic preset that it came with. Maybe I’ll keep using version 1 largely for the build-in presets, but version 2 is a keeper!
