Krakli Software has announced a public beta of Kaskade, a free virtual synthesizer for Windows.
Kaskade is made up of 8 separate poly-synths.
I have not been able to take Kaskade much further and I am also aware that it may struggle to run on some DAWs so I thought it best to release Kaskade as a Public Beta to see if it was worth pursuing as a project. So here it is Fully functioning and without limitations.
The public beta is available to download for Windows (VST).

LinPLug has announced the release of a public beta of its new Spectral synthesizer instrument plug-in.
Spectral features four unique 121 band filters, one for each 256 harmonics additive oscillator.
If you are familiar with subtractive synthesis, you will feel right at home with the Spectral, because you can choose a waveform, choose a filter and go on. But Spectral delivers far more options than you would expect from the well sorted user interface. The unique audio engine under the hood is capable of delivering many sounds never heard before.
Right now we work with our sound designers on the factory library and finalize the product.
The public beta is currently available to download for Windows, Mac will follow shortly. The beta will expire December 31st, 2013.
