Westgate Sounds releases Wraith
Westgate Sounds has released Wraith, a free Anomaly demo and .sf2 player created by H.G. Fortune.
Wraith comes with an internal soundset composed of 32 sounds from Anomaly 3 – Pads, 32 sounds from Anomaly IV – Wasteland and 32 sounds from Anomaly VI – Textures in Bank 0. In Bank 1 are 96 sounds provided by HG Fortune.
There is an internal bank of 128 presets by Daniel Kemp. The first 64 presets use only sounds in Bank 0 while the last 64 presets use sounds from both Bank 0 and Bank 1.
Wraith will also load external .SF2 files. So you can use other soundfonts and combine them with either the Anomaly or the HG Fortune sounds, or use it as a .SF2 player.
- 2 oscillators with sf2 based PCM waveforms.
- 24dB Lowpass filter with resonance per synthvoice.
- Spook fx as global fx.
- BassEnhancer to enhance low frequencies (works indenpendently from panned signal).
- Brilliance knob to enhance upper frequencies.
- Delay synced to bpm with manual offset knob.
- 2 ADSR envelope generators (one for Filter, one for VCA).

Wraith is available as a freeware VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC.
