Saltline has released version 2 of Ichi, a free virtual analog synthesizer plug-in for Windows.
Completely rebuilt, Ichi has evolved into a powerful addition to any plugin collection.
Newcomers to synthesis will find the layout mirrors the signal path for easy navigation and a clear understanding of how to manipulate Ichi’s sound.
Patches can be created quickly for stock, bread and butter sounds. That’s not to say that you can’t dig deeper into this humble instrument, featuring multiple modulation sources and 24 destinations, the sonic possibilities are endless. Ichi’s oscillator layout will be echoed throughout saltline’s future, synthesis based, instruments allowing the user to understand clearly what their parameter tweaking will effect.
