Justin Robert has announced that all Mothman synthesizer plug-ins are now available as freeware.
The Casio CZ-3000 inspired Mothman Z-3000 VST plug-in for PC is now freeware.
Since I don’t think I am going to have time anytime soon to release any updates for the Z3000 and the Mothman 2000, I have decided to set them free.
It has been about 3 years since I released them and I sincerely thank all of you that have purchased the synths in the past! Now you can download the entire set in a single free pack. Just unzip it to your vst directory and you’ll have all the mothman synths!
The Mothman plug-ins are available as VST instruments for Windows PC.

Justin Robert has released Mothman Z3000, a virtual synthesizer instrument inspired by the Casio CZ-3000.
The Mothman Z-3000 is the newest sibling of the Mothman synthesizers and this one is the best one yet. It’s a 16 voice polyphonic synthesizer that features two Phase Distortion DCOs, two DCWs, and two DCAs all six feature the famous 8 point envelope section that made the CZ synthesizer so famous. You have the ability to make some of the most complex waveforms you’ve ever heard.
It also has the stereo chorus, noise and LFO just like the original CZ-3000. Also, there’s an added switchable velocity feature that gives greater expression than the original CZ, and an added analog style filter on DCA2 to give even more sound options. You can also pan the different DCOs to give more stereo fx. But other than that, I kept it pretty faithful to the original synth. Programming is very similar to the original CZs, the only difference being that on each 8 stage envelope there is a “scale” feature, which acts like a master envelope control to quickly lower or raise the length of the envelope all around without changing each one individually. You can even use the original Casio CZ-3000 Manual to understand the concepts behind programming this VST.
There are 64 preset slots with 18 presets already created. The sound of this synth is very similar to the real thing. Real phase distortion synthesis is used, real eight point envelopes and a cool “Mothman” design make this synth a must have addition to your VST library.
Mothman Z3000 is available to purchase as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC, priced at $24 USD.

Justin Robert has released Mothman 1966, a free virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows.
This new Mothman synth is a pretty simple little gem. But don’t let it’s simplicity fool you.
It is a two oscillator, two LFO synth that uses standard subtractive synthesis. What sets it apart is the three custom waveforms in the the two oscillators. One is a “diamond wave” which was created using FM synthesis and the waveform image resembles a diamond. Two is an 8 bit saw wave, its an awesome buzzy and gritty saw wave. Three is a woodwind wave, used to create cool sounding flutes and other wood instruments. The LFOs can be routed to either of the VCFs or VCAs.
Some patches sound rather Juno 106 sounding. Over all it is gritty yet warm, and vintage sounding.
Mothman 1966 is available as a freeware VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.

Justin Robert has announced the release of Mothman 2000, a virtual synthesizer instrument plug-in for Windows PC.
The Mothman 2000 is a very unique VSTi for windows that seamlessly combines 3 forms of synthesis to create a truly unique sounding and easy to use software synthesizer.
Mothman 2000 features
- 2 oscillators.
- Analog / Subtractive.
- Phase Distortion Synthesis.
- FM Synthesis.
- 2 LFOs which double as FM operators.
- Switchable Digital Stereo Delay.
- Switchable Velocity Sensitivity.
- Built-in Oscilloscope.
Mothman 2000 is available as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC for $5 USD. Mothman 1000 is the free version of the Mothman 2000, available for download from Justin Robert’s website. It is a fully functioning plug-in but lacks the digital delay, velocity sensitivity and only has a total of 32 patch memory slots instead of the 64 that are available on the Mothman 2000.

Justin Robert has released the Mothman 1000, a free software synthersizer plug-in for Windows.
Mothman 1000 features
- 2 Osc: subtractive analog oscillator and a phase distortion oscillator.
- Modulating LFO / HFOs (low and high frequency) and VCFs for each oscillator.
- VCF 1 includes an ADSR input section.
- The high frequency modulation creates FM synthesis type sounds. Mixing this with the phase distortion and subtractive sounds makes for a lot of possibilities.
- The L(H)FO on OSC 1 is routed to the amp section of OSC 1 and the L(H)FO of OSC 2 is routed to the modulation depth of OSC 2, playing with this can create very interesting ring modulation and FM type sounds.
- 32 built in presets that range from warm pads, Casio emulation, metallic craziness, warm analog basses and drums.
Mothman 1000 is available as a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC.
