u-he has announced that its Podolski synthesizer plug-in previously available as magware is now a free download for all users.

The updated Podolski offers new presets by Howard Scarr, a GUI makeover (two new skins) and support of a wider range of plug-in formats.

Podolski is a simple, CPU-efficient virtual analogue synthesizer. Basically a cut down version of FilterscapeVA with just one oscillator, one filter, one envelope and two LFOs, it also features a Zebra-style arpeggiator/sequencer plus chorus and delay effects.

Podolski’s specialities are the Click parameter (emphasizes the filter attack) and its ability to seamlessly morph between three waveforms (WaveWarp).

The Podolski synth is a free download for Mac and Windows (VST/AU).
