Vember Audio has announced the Surge virtual synthesizer instrument is now open-source.

The hybrid subtractive synth comes with 8 versatile oscillator algorithms, two filter units, plenty of modulation options and various effects.

Architecturally speaking, Surge is a rather complex synthesizer. But because of how it’s put together it’s still easy to learn. Once you do, you will turn the sounds in your head to audio faster than ever.

The effortless workflow, attention to detail and the sound quality can’t really be appreciated without trying it yourself.

Previously sold at $99 USD, Surge is now released under the GNU GPL v3 license. VST and VST3 binaries for Windows 64-bit are currently available.

Source-code and binaries are available on GitHub.
