Speaker Blower Records SB-3 LE

Speaker Blower Records has released SB-3 LE, a stereo phat vintage synthesizer plug-in for Windows PC.

The SB-3 LE is an exclusive free version created for Speaker Blower Records. Born as a monophonic synth (optimized for this mode), it is now polyphonic in this v. 1.1. VSTi for PC only – NO MAC VERSION!

SB-3 LE features

  • Stereo Detunable synthesizer with mono (optimized – low cpu usage) or polyphonic modes.
  • Full Stereo Architecture.
  • 3 oscillators [doubled when Stereo Detune is on: osc. 1 is stereo and has a mono sub-oscillator; Osc. 2 is stereo and Osc. 3 is double mono].
  • Ring Modulation [osc. 1 vs osc. 2].
  • Two multimode filters [serial/parallel configuration].
  • Two Lfos [with a total of 7 possible destinations].
  • Two envelopes [optionally, they can modulate the lfos amount value for complex modulations].
  • Effects: Distortion (2 types), Tape Delay [sync rates only] and Chorus.
  • Ultra Analogue or Phat option [analogue modelling circuitry].
  • 17 presets (12 are exclusive, 4 are shared with full version and default).
  • Clear, easy to use, intuitive, old-skool style GUI.
  • Rusty Vintage Sci-Fi Design.

Note — this free version has a few limitations:

  • Polyphony: Mono + 4 voices (not 16)
