Alien Space Weaver is a synth especially made for spacey, deep or dark atmospheric backgrounds, soundscapes and FX sounds.

It features 2 PCM wave oscillators. Oscillator 2 uses waveforms created from images - it contains 75 special samples (fairly long ones created from images, providing very spacey sounds). Play it slowly and let the sounds evolve.
  • 2 PCM wave oscillators with separate external SF2 file (& option to load .wav).
  • 1 24 dB resonant LP filter with Modulation.
  • 1 12 dB resonant LP/HP filter with Modulation.
  • 2 Filter bypass + modulation.
  • 2 Bass Enhance.
  • 2 SpookB Fx (different from the ones used before).
  • 2 Delays with manual tempo offset; Pan and modulation.
  • 2 Pan for undelayed signal.
  • 6 LFO + 1 S&H as mod sources incl. manual tempo offset from x1 to x4.
  • 1 Reverb.
  • 1 "Nuthin ?" special modulation to Filter.
  • 5 Lazy Buttons (use 'All' for limitless patch switching).
  • 380+ Patches (more in preparation as well as further wavesets).

It does what it advertises, produces spacey / alien like sounds. A bit repetitive, it feels like while there is a lot of capability here, it seems to produce very similar sounds.

I'm very happy with this vst. the sounds are very spacey and ominous. The developer did a stellar job making this plugin

EpicKWJ use ASW in VSThost. HGF can't change it, he passed away in 2014.

I adored this VST but it kept crashing my VSTBridge in Cubase.

HG Fortune is the best, hands down for vst's. free or not, the random functions and the use of sound fonts is just genius. why have a sound pack that's 5 cd's when soundfonts have existed for so long and work so well in conjunction with each other. this and atnoise do both ends of the scale well though. Alien Space Weaver does this great alien sounding soundscapes and atnoise does the creepiest soundscapes. Both of these scare me to use sometimes because of where they go, you don't expect at all. HG Fortune has the only plugins that both excite me to use and scare me because it's so startling and surprising what will appear....

I can't rave about this vst enough! Possibly the best free synth I have seen on this site. The sounds in here are awesome, if not a bit creepy. I am continually amazed at the superb quality of the patches. This rivals even some Native Instruments products! Seriously! I am using this synth in an ambient album that I am working on, which may be completed soon. Thank you so much! Keep up the great work!
