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.

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).

You can download ACK from Stephan Müsch’s website (free registration required).

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

From the Ichiro Toda webpage:

Synth1 is a software synthesizer for computer music use. It is both VSTi and DX compatible. The current version is freeware.

Functionally it is modelled on the Clavia Nord Lead 2Red Synth ; with the following characteristics:

  • 2 Oscillators, FM modulation, ring modulation,sync,modulation envelope
  • 4 types of filters, distortion
  • 2LFO(synchronized with host)
  • Arpeggiator (synchronized with host)
  • Tempo delay (synchronized with host), stereo chorus/flanger
  • Legato mode, portamento
  • 16 notes polyphony
  • 128 presets
  • Thoroughly optimized for light CPU load using SSE instructions etc. It is quite possible to run 10 simultaneous instances on a Celeron 1.4 GHz system
  • Automation (only in VSTi mode)

As to what is updated exactly is not totally clear to me for I do not read Japanese, but for those who do:
