Overview

SynthMaster is an 'all-around' semi-modular software synthesizer and effect plug-in that features many different synthesis methods including VA, Additive, Wavetable, Wavescanning, Phase Modulation, Frequency Modulation, Pulse Width Modulation, Ring Modulation, Amplitude Modulation, Physical Modeling and SFZ Sample Playback synthesis. With its multi-synthesis oscillators, analog modelled/digital filters, flexible effects routing with 11 types of high quality effects and a massive modulation architecture with 95 separate modulation sources and 650+ modulation targets; SynthMaster is a 'must-have' for all synthesizer enthusiasts!

Cross-platform VST, AU, RTAS and AAX: SynthMaster runs as a VST, RTAS, AAX instrument on both Windows and Mac OSX, and as an Audio Unit instrument on Mac OSX.

800 Factory Presets: SynthMaster comes with 800 new factory presets from a world class team of sound designers: BigTone, Michael Kastrup, Rob Lee, Umit 'Insigna' Uy, Ufuk Kevser, Aiyn Zahev, Frank 'Xenox' Neumann, Teoman Pasinlioglu, Nori Ubukata and Brian 'Xenos' Lee.

Semi-Modular Architecture: For each SynthMaster instance, there are 2 layers followed by 2 global effect send busses. Each layer has its own: Arpeggiator, 2 Oscillators, 4 Modulators, 2 Filters, 4 ADSR Envelopes, 2 Multistage Envelopes, 2 2D Envelopes, 2 LFOs and 4 Keyscalers. The modulators can modulate frequency, phase, amplitude or pulse width of the oscillators or any other modulators at audio rate.

Massive Modulation Architecture: SynthMaster has more than 650 modulation targets and 95 modulation sources including ADSR Envelopes, 2D Envelopes, Multistage Envelopes, LFOs, KeyScalers, Easy Parameters, Vocoder Bands, MIDI Velocity, Aftertouch, Pitch Bend and MIDI CC. Each modulation target can have up to 3 modulation sources. The modulation matrix, which has 64 available slots, has visual filtering as well so that targets for a specific source, or sources for a specific target can be filtered and shown on the user interface.

Easy Parameters: SynthMaster features 8 easy knobs and 2 XY pads that can be freely assigned as modulation sources, so that the complexity of the synth engine could be hidden away and only most important parameters of a preset can be controlled by the user. The easy parameters can be globally linked to MIDI controllers, and they can be assigned automatically by SynthMaster as well.

Powerful Arpeggiator: The arpeggiator in SynthMaster features classic arpeggiator modes such as Up, Down, UpDown, DownUp, UpDown2, DownUp2, AsPlayed as well as Sequence, Chord and Arpeggiate modes. Each of the 32 steps of the arpeggiator has its own Velocity, Note Number, Note Length, Slide and Hold parameters.

Basic Oscillators: 'Basic' oscillators in SynthMaster are capable of synthesizing many different types of waveforms: Sine, Square, Triangle, Sawtooth, Pulse, Noise, Wavetable and multisampled WAV/AIFFs defined in SFZ files.

Additive Oscillators: An 'Additive' oscillator is actualy 8 'basic' oscillators running together. Each 'basic' oscillator has its own detune, tone, phase/pulse width, frequency and waveform type.

Vector Oscillators: A 'Vector' oscillator consists of 4 'basic' oscillators, mixed at different ratios. The mix ratios are determined by 2 orthogonal parameters in 2 dimensions: 'X Index' and 'Y index'.

Wavescanning Oscillators: A 'Wavescanning' oscillator is similar to basic oscillator, except that the waveform can be scanned (interpolated) through 16 different waveforms shapes. The position of the waveform can be adjusted using the 'wave index' parameter.

Stereo Oscillators with Improved Unison: Oscillators in SynthMaster have stereo output. With the new "voices", "pan spread" and "detune spread" parameters, each basic/wavescanning oscillator can have its own unison settings which eliminates the need to enable unison for all voice elements.

Analog Filters: The 'analog' filters are modelled after the famous ladder filter, so they self oscillate when the filter resonance is maxed out. They have continuosly variable slope, which is unique to SynthMaster.

Digital Filters: The 'digital' filters are biquad filters with a hard limiter in their output. The limiter features an envelope follower with attack, release and threshold parameters.

Multimode Filters: With the new 'multimode' filter type, it is possible to switch from Lowpass to Bandpass to Highpass filter types continuously. For analog multimode filters, it is also possible to change the slope of the filter continously from 0 db/oct to 24 db/oct.

Dual Filters: With the new 'dual' filter type, two multimode filters can be run simultaneously, either in parallel, or in series. The mix ratios between the filters, and the topology (parallel/series) between them can be changed continuosly, as well as the modes and cutoff frequencies of the filters.

Comb Filters: Comb filters are digital filters used in physical modeling synthesis.
Before/Inside/After Filter Distortion: A distortion stage can be inserted before, after, or even inside the filters. For analog filters, the distortion is applied for each of the 4 filter stages in 'inside' mode.

Rich Set of Effects: SynthMaster features 11 different effect types: Distortion, LoFi, Ensemble, Phaser, 6 Band EQ, Compressor, Vocoder, Delay, Chorus, Tremolo, Reverb.
Flexible Effects Routing: Each of the 11 effect types can be inserted on any layer insert or on any of the 2 global effect bus inserts.

Microtuning: SynthMaster supports Scala tuning, so tuning can be set either for each preset or globally by loading from a Scala tuning file.

Preset Browser: SynthMaster features a comprehensive preset browser with separate search criterias for instrument type, preset attributes, music style or preset author.

Online Preset Browser: Registered users can upload their presets to the online preset library, or browse and download presets created by other registered users; using the preset browser right inside the plug-in window.

Multiple Skins: SynthMaster comes with 3 different skins in different color variations. Using the included user interface editor, users can not only customize the existing skins but also can create their own custom interfaces as well.

Importing MIDI patterns as Arpeggiator Sequence: Monophonic or even polyphonic (chord) MIDI patterns can be imported into the arpeggiators in SynthMaster by just drag and drop of the MIDI file onto the arpeggiator view on the plugin window.

Importing WAV/AIFF Multisamples as SFZ definitions: Multisamples in WAV/AIFF formats could be imported into SynthMaster as SFZ definitions, by simply drag and drop of the WAV/AIFF files onto the oscillator waveform view on the plugin window.

I'm always on the lookout for a great sounding soft synth at a low price. I especially like synths with great pads and an easy arpeggiator. In both these areas, Synthmaster is golden! The preset sounds are not only interesting and unique, they are extremely usable. One of the great things about this synth is that, not only is it completely programmable, but there is also a "player" mode that can open inside your DAW or as a standalone that will let you just play the presets. The only slight issue I had was that I had to "point" my DAW's VST browser to the file, but everything else was a breeze. In fact, the first thing I did was play through the pads and create a whole bank of "favorites" that were immediately usable. Then I added one of them to a recording I was working on. This will be one of my favorite synths, no doubt!!!

Comments about KV331 Audio SynthMaster Software Download:

SynthMaster has been at the very top of user and reviewer polls for the past few years for good reason---it's simply one of the best. It sounds it, it has an unbelievably varied and comprehensive synthesis feature set, comes with over a thousand presets, is easy to use yet let's you go as deep as you desire, tweaking any preset can quickly yield great results, and it is more than reasonably priced. If you're into soft synths, this will probably end up in your arsenal---and get used. I used the Player version for years but when GC put the full version on a special holiday sale, the inevitable purchase became irresistible. I don't know why I waited so long (well, yes I do---always waitng for the best deal). Standalone and plugin. Good support and updates that add even more great features. Great sound and the ability to explore so many different forms of synthesis. There are so many good soft synths available but this one always places at or near the top, regardless of price.

      Comments about KV331 Audio SynthMaster Software Download:

      I am extremely happy with this purchase. I am mainly using the Synth Master Player as a plugin with Pro Tools 10.3.10 on a PC. This version of Pro Tools uses the AAX 32-bit plugin, which meets the system requirements and works perfectly. I have a MIDI keyboard, create a stereo instrument track with the Player, and off I go.
      The Player is part of the package and allows you to use the included presets while still offering a lot of tweak-ability. The Player is so easy to use and the included presets sound so good that they will keep me busy and happy for a long, long time. I feel like this product has given me an instant creativity boost. I really had no idea what I was getting with this, as I never imagined the included presets would be so cool and so numerous. It will take me months to go through them all. It reminds me of EZ Drummer but with 10 expansion packs included. Again, I am amazed at the quality and value of this product. Thank you kv331 and GC!

      A well-designed synth, but tons of flexibility; its structure is clear but it takes time to get to know.

        It's a great and easy to use synth with a lot of presets and a lot of soundshaping possibilities. Compared to other synth it's not that expensive at all.
