Quilcom ASS is an Analogue Sounding Synthesizer. 

It allows you to explore the old debate about analogue sounding better than digital techniques. You can switch between the detailed Analogue emulation and a pure “Digital” version of the same preset. This gives flexibility to find a quality of sound that appeals and is appropriate to purpose.

There are many tweakable parameters to adjust for both types of sound, so you can experience what early synthesists found when they first compared the new with the old.

The synth also has a range of effects where you can individually switch between an emulated vintage sound and a modern more “perfect” digital take.

The download includes a User Reference guide which goes into detail for every control and also provides background information on the processes and decisions made.

Yes, this is an absolute gems for free. The name is cringey though.

Very good sounding but in my DAW Linux/Reaper it has some graphical issues. Some Parts of the graphical elements are missing.

Beautiful layout, comprehensive, real retro sounds, not feeble FM imitations. Stable on Reaper with functionform's tweak.

It's got some interesting options and the delay effect is crazy, automate those knobs choice a random automation curve in your daw, push record in your daw, comeback some hour later and you have a area full of new sound effects! Haha. However where it has some issue is in the Mono department. For unknown reason the notes gets cutoff and you cant keep playing your baselines etc, but i suppose one could just sample it or upper the voices.

Lots of controls to play around with... should be fun and usable! Crashes a bit but I think I can get around that.

A truly experimental synth. It not only invites but requires experimentation to fulfill its premise. Along with Native Instruments' Soundschool Analog this is a true teaching tool.

Sounds pretty good. Saw a youtube video the other day about the "underwater" sound on Life's Been Good To Me So Far by Joe Walsh (one note, but sequenced filter with almost near self-oscillating resonance), and got it going on this synth in no time! Some glitchiness when adjusting faders.

Insanely great synth, check out the demo here. It replicates classic album riffs almost exactly. Note for Reaper, click the + sign in the FX list (after adding it to track) and select "Save minimal undo states". Sound quality on this is sublime. 10/5 stars.
