Brain Control has released version 3.3 of its Tunefish 3 free synthesizer instrument.

Brain Control Tunefish 3

A new Tunefish v3 release is done and now it is finally cross platform just as v4 already is. The UI was rewritten to match the style of v4. Several bugs were also fixed.

Changes in Tunefish v3.3

  • Synth is now cross platform and has a new UI.
  • Saving an instrument caused the preset file to grow larger and larger due to appending instead of rewriting the contents.
  • Restore instrument button did not work.
  • Instrument count is now 1000.
  • ADSR1 will not cut the note if ADSR2 is still going.
  • Fixed Reverb width.

Tunefish 3 is available to download for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Brain Control has released version 4.0.1 of its Tunefish 4 free virtual analog synthesizer instrument.

Brain Control Tunefish 4

A patchrelease for Tunefish 4 was just finished. It fixes a series of bugs listed below. Thank you to everybody who helped testing. As a side note I should mention I am looking for people to help design the factory soundset for TF4, since this is still very small so far.

Changes in Tunefish v4.0.1

  • When using no ADSR, instruments were cut immediatelly resulting in plopping. This is fixed.
  • ADSR zero decay will no longer cause volume go up and cause things like reverb crashes or host going to mute.
  • Saving an instrument caused the preset file to grow larger and larger due to appending instead of rewriting the contents.
  • Restore instrument button did not work.
  • Instrument count is now 1000.
  • ADSR1 will not cut the note if ADSR2 is still going.
  • Fixed Reverb width.

Tunefish 4 for Windows Mac and Linux (VST/AU) is a free download.

Brain Control releases Tunefish v4 free synthesizer (beta)

Brain Control Tunefish

Brain Control has released a public beta of Tunefish v4, a free synthesizer instrument for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Tunefish is a very tiny virtual analog synthesizer. It is developed to fit into about 10kb of compressed machine code while still producing an audio quality that can compete with commercial synthesizers. This site was created to make the VST/AU version of it available to the public.

This plugin, unlike the version of TF which is used in 64k intros of our group Brain Control is of course larger, mainly because it has a UI and uses the excellent Juce framework for C++. (This is true for v4. v3 uses Qt and v2 uses the VSTGUI library.)

Tunefish v4 features

  • Available on Windows and Linux as VST (32 and 64 bit) and on Mac as Audio Unit or VST (Universal binary).
  • Improved UI compared to TF3 which will visualize all modulations.
  • Uses an additive synthesis based wavetable generator.
  • The Noise generator can produce any frequency of noise with any bandwidth.
  • Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass and an improved Notch filter are available.
  • 2 ADSRs and 2 LFOs that can be linked to pretty much any important knob using a modulation matrix.
  • Supported effects are Flanger, Chorus, Distortion, Delay, Reverb, EQ and Formant.
  • The effects stack allows for any permutation of up to 10 effects.

Tunefish is available to download at no charge.
