Avatar ST is most suited for a large variety of pads, soundscapes, atmospheres or related FX sounds but can do other sounds like e.g. certain kinds of basses too.

The 16-Step Modulator allows sounds to be fairly rhythmical in various ways if required. Also you can have one section step-modulated while the the other is not as there are two complete sections with oscillators, modifiers, VCA EG, Delay, Pan and Reverb send, plus a grain processor and a multimode filter to be inserted via different audio routings. In addition there are a lot of modulation options you might select from in order to tailor your sound.
  • 2 x 2 PCM wave oscillators with 384 waves in 3 banks.
  • 2 x Osc Mix section with one XY-Pad plus mix option for direct and step modulated out.
  • 2 x Mystify with three selectable types (Bright, Soft, Dark).
  • 1 x Grain Processor.
  • 1 x Filter with 4 types (LP, HP, BP and Feedback) incl. 1 ADSR EG.
  • 2 x VCA EG (ADSR).
  • 2 x Delay, 2 x Pan.
  • 7 x LFO, 1 x S&H, 16 Step Modulator, Keytrack and Modwheel.
  • 1 semi-parametric 3-Band Stereo EQ, 1 small Reverb for adding some nice flavour.
  • 16 voices, 8 Lazy Buttons.

Plugin does not work. No sound is produced. It is dead silent.

Just wow! I make my own backgrounds for a scary podcast and after years of searching for the perfect vst I think I just struck pure gold! Just awesome!

Very good synth for monumental sounds, for intros and special effects. The "Avatar" is very similar to the "AlienSpaceWeaver", but you can actually make music with the "Avatar". Many thanks to the makers!

This could do worse than SwampXT at background noises but that's all. Must show the GUI so it responds to the modwheel, especially for oscillator "rotation". On Ubuntu MATE with Wine v6, and OMPT 32-bit "legacy" it resets the oscillators to the first Soundfont waveform before rendering to disk. Must use Silverspike Tape-It or something else to record its output in real time.

Such an amazing contribution for all of us to utilize and make really cool compositions from. Lets never take for granted how truly gifted, talented, generous and open minded this developer was.

Hard to program but totally worth it, this synth is oozing with great early 2000s digital ambience!! even if you cant make your own sounds, the many presets do well enough

Possibly the greatest atmospheric/mood generating VST synth I have ever played with. Literally, an endless world of possibilities for creation / tweaking / mangling and just having fun! HG Fortune was amazing in such a profound way.

Really usable (after you know what to do), great sound, the amount of controls is HUUGE! But my biggest problem with this is that there was no Init patch/preset... so learning how to use this and making your own sounds is really hard.

The GUI is huge - I love it, but takes a lot of space on the screen - not bad cpu usage, I found I really have to tone down track volumes and I master my songs dry to get a organic natural sound with my music - so is difficult to level out sound ratio, it takes a few tools in the effects chain to dry the sound out. HGF sounds are kind of wet-meaning reverb. The strings are awesome however for those needing strings tracks-can sound like a real symphony backer-HGF Serenity also is outstanding for strings.

I'm new to HG Fortune. I have Altair 4, but Avatar is my first synth that specializes in these sounds as I'm getting into the idea of having live ambient jams. Thanks HGF!

This was one of the only synths I cared to use before saving up and spending hundreds of dollars on High End VSTS, and yet I find myself still coming back to this instrument often.

Try running fl studio through an external hard drive, and free up your pc from unneccessary cluddering items. IT WILL WORK!!!

This is a great plugin! The ambient sounds in this are great. Coincidently, I am currently working on an ambient album, and I plan to use it in the creation of it.
