NOVAkILL has released COLDkILLERmini, a freeware synth plug-in for Windows PC.
COLDkILLERmini is NOVAkILL’s first additive synth and is based on the newly evolved XE Platform. All synths in this line have a very similar structure. The main difference between them is the oscillator used. COLDkILLERmini’s additive oscillator has 31 partials and a range of editing tools.
COLDkILLERmini features the excellent EVM Lightwave Oscillator. It has a number of useful presets, including sine, square, pulse and saw, as well as several “digital” waveforms.

NOVAkILL has released NOVAkILLER, a freeware FM synth VST plug-in for Windows PC.
From the manual:
NOVAkILLER is something of a one-off instrument to celebrate NOVAkILL’s new ORION skin, NOVA-III. Like ANGSTkILLERmini, it has a hidden oscillator which is used to modulate the main oscillator to produce both FM and Hard Sync sounds. It is 16 note polyphonic and also features a Low-Pass Filter, tempo-sync’ed LFO, two ADSR Envelopes and overdrive.
- Oscillator: 5 waveforms, PW, PWM, FM envelope and velocity modulation depth, Unison Spread, Hard sync, FM On/Off, FM Modulation Wheel control, octave, Unison.
- Modulation envelope: ADSR, Linear, Convex, Concave and “S” Curve interpolation between curves.
- Filter: Cutoff/Resonance, envelope and velocity modulation depth, Invert, 12 to 24dB/Octave, Cutoff Modulation Wheel control.
- LFO – Low Frequency Oscillator: Delay modulation onset, PWM, Sync, FM, cutoff (+Invert) and stereo pan modulation depth, LFO Waveform selection, Tempo-sync’ed LFO frequency [1/16th Note to 16 Bars]
- VCA – Voltage Controlled Amplifier: ADSR, Volume, Velocity, Portamento time, Overdrive Wet/Dry mix, Poly/Monophonic switch, retrigger, two wide controls.

NOVAkILL has released ANGSTkILLERmini, a freeware synth plug-in for Windows PC.
ANGSTkILLERmini is built around a simple FM oscillator with a hidden “modulator”, which uses a Sine wave to modulate the phase of the main oscillator, or “carrier”. It is very simple to use, yet capable of a surprising range of usable timbres. This is one of the best little killerz of all time!
NOVAkILL ANGSTkILLERmini – quality in a simple-to-use format
ANGSTkILLERmini is the first of a new range built on the XE Platform.
From the NOVAkiLL site:
The latest evolution is the new XE Platform, which forms the basis of the most diverse range of killerz ever. All instruments share the same basic architecture and are differentiated by using different oscillators, from high-quality virtual-analogue, through FM and additive synthesis. Once you learn how to get around any one instrument in the range the others will instantly make sense, allowing the user to get the most out of each of them.
All instruments feature:
- an updated X-Filter,
- a beefed up tempo-synced LFO with 19 waveforms,
- a 6-point modulation envelope,
- a traditional ADSR VCA envelope,
- powerful Unison mode,
- Mono/Poly operation,
- a revised Gate effect,
- a great sounding overdrive.
The new user-interface feature precision editing via numeric display of most values, expanded use of X-Y Pads and large, pop-up windows for editing each envelope.
NOVAkILL’s VST page already shows some other plug-ins, including COLDkILLERmini, the first NOVAkILL additive synth.
These mini versions all feature a single oscillator and one LFO and the routing is somewhat limited. The full versions (which will be available exclusively on NOVAkILL’s next album, later in the year) will feature multiple oscillators, two LFO and a full mod matrix.

NOVAkILL has released kILL-O-RAMA, a freeware effect plug-in for Windows PC.
kILL-O-RAMA’s large X-Y pad allows you to concurrently set pan and volume for a channel. It also features a tempo-synced LFO to facilitate auto-panning.
Using just the volume slider, it can also be used to increase or reduce the gain of a channel on those occasions when you would otherwise need to turn all your other channels up or down.

NOVAkILL has updated GODkILLER to version 2. It is a versatile V/A synth that looks quite simular to EGOkILLER.
The new version has two oscillators with sync and Hard Sync. It also has two graphical ADSR envelopes and a comprehensive LFO featuring 16 different waveforms. Overdrive and LFO destinations can be controlled by a Modulation Wheel on a MIDI keyboard controller.
- 2 Standard SE Oscillators, each with 7 different waveforms
- Polyphonic Unison
- Mixable Low-Pass [12dB or 24dB/octave switchable] and band Reject filters
- Graphical ADSR Envelopes
- Custom tempo-synced LFO featuring 16 shapes and frequency up to 16 bars
- Overdrive effect
- MIDI automation
