After several effect plugin releases, Klevgrand has announced the release of a new software instrument. Hillman is a synthlike instrument that is inspired by old combo-organs and string machines.

Hillman is not designed to replicate vintage gear, but rather aims to add a new color to the modern producer’s sound palette. Hillman gives you lush warm strings, soulful organs, futuristic synthesizers and everything in between.

It has 4 voices per note, each with selectable waveform (transistor:ish, tube:ish, sine and special plasma), octave switch and a level control.

The sound is generated with an analog approach, but does not use samples or sampled wavetables. Hillman also has an intuitive ADSR envelope control, FX section with Chorus, Phaser & Reverb, and comes with many built-in presets.

  • 4 voices per note.
  • Each voice has selectable waveform (transistorish, tubeish, sine and special plasma) + octave switch and level control.
