Roazhon DSP BrainStormer

Roazhon DSP has released version 0.86 (beta) of BrainStormer, a free virtual analog synthesizer instrument for Windows.

BrainStormer is a freeware virtual analog synthesizer.

As a programmer and producer, I always wanted to combine my two passions and create a synthesizer to understand the inner workings and challenges of such a beast. I started the BrainStormer on my free time in 2012, focusing on sound quality and synthesis capabilities.

Changes in BrainStormer v0.86

  • Fixed sound issues and missed MIDI events in FL, Reaper, savi-host and probably other DAWs without having to change some audio buffer settings.
  • Fixed wrong discrete parameters saving/loading (like OSC octave and detune).
  • Fixed wrong list string displaying after loading a saved preset.
  • Fixed 2 checked list entries after loading a preset.
  • Fixed run time audio size buffer changes that make the synth unstable on some hosts just after initialization phase (Sonar, savi-host and probably other DAWs).
  • Fixed stuck notes with piano roll editor on Sonar and Energy XT2.
  • Fixed note off events sometimes not handled.
  • Inverted OSC3 FM source mix between OSC1 and OSC2.
  • Fixed LFO sync rate that was 4 times too much faster.
  • Changed minimum ENV release time to 5 ms.

BrainStormer is freeware for Windows (VST).
