Surge

Post by boombaxx »

Hi thought this might of be an interest. Looks like a pretty sweet synth. It is open source so you can change it

Yes, great machine, with good presets, I like the sound, cool to see free vsti with this quality, I didn't try the vocoder, each oscillator can be an audio input. 8-)

Surge is now very interesting, I like it because it has 12 LFO, accepts scala files, better filters now, a nightly build, a new gui, lot of presets, dual mode, many good things, a must have free hybrid synth.

While we're talking about open source synths, I'd recommend trying Odin 2

https://www.thewavewarden.com/odin2

It's not as deep as Surge, but still loads of possibilities.

VSTi doesn't recognize VST3 synths?

Did you make a full rescan? (or scan for new, I forget it every time)

Oh. Well I did now, but the filename is "Surge.vst3" and VSTi can only load a dll extension.

Glad to see Dexed is finally under active development again! It desperately needs a rescaleable GUI - programming it these days on a high-res setup is about as obnoxious as programming an actual DX7. :lol:

Just the parent directory (\VST3\) is good enough, PVST is smart enough to automatically parse all subdirectories.

You also don't need to rescan (or at least, I don't, not when adding new VSTs - I believe it automatically scans for new machines on Buzz launch).

However, in order to actually load VST3s, you can't use the PVST double-click menu. Instead, search for the machine name on the right panel:

(you can also right-click a VST machine and go to Plugins > , but I prefer being able to filter with text input :D)

As we speaking about interesting synths - check out new free one Vital. It's amazing HQ wavetable synth. It have many unique features as text to wavetable, stereo modulations, pitch snap to scale per oscilator/wavetable and many interesting wavetable modulations like - making shepard tone from single note. It also have modern standard features like MPE support, microtonal, audio-rate modulation and possibility modulating a modulator :dance:
