The P/Nes 8-Bit Monster is a synthesizer, or a Nintendorgan, inspired by the 2A03 chip used in the Nes sound architecture.

It can produce authentic 8-bit sounds like the original Nes and other retro gaming systems or arcades, but it can also do much more with its expanded sound design. This is not just a basic simulation, this is a full blown synthesizer, my dream circuit-bent Nes.

The P/Nes is rooted in pitch tracking. Pretty much every effects and modifiers can be controlled by the pitch/note being played to create unique sounds and phrases.

The P/Nes also offers a great amount of control over every aspect of the sound shaping and modulation, all while keeping things simple and accessible. Every settings are visible within the same window, there are no hidden sub-menus.

Man I hate these rude people in the comments. Constructive criticism is dead, it seems no one is able to regulate their emotions anymore. Imagine spewing vitriol because you're not a fan of a free synth. Sheesh, glad that's not me.

I would love to use this synth, but for some reason, it will "drop out" when reloading in my DAW! Has activity lights for the MIDI notes, but will not play unless I completely reset it. Too bad..

This is the biggest CPU hog I have ever seen. Looks cool but is completely unusable. Plus, that is a horrible name!
