Basic Synth is a morphing controls synthesizer.

It tries to simplify GUI controls and make shaping a sound quick and easy. For example, just 3 joysticks can drastically morph the sound. The goal is to provide a solid little synth for everyday use.

It has 10 polyphony with an OSC that has 3 internal 'Modulator->OSC' pairs with detune, quantization and phasemodulation.

There is a per voice dual LFO that modulates the filter. The filter itself is a 'moog' type filter which internally dynamically scales its range for each note played, an envelope modulates this as well.

All this is put through a 'spacialiser' that helps place the sound in the mix. Finally, there is an 'opaque' mix through which 'waveform ducks' incoming audio, usefull for making a bass waveform not clip the audio signal.

Aside from that, it has extras like the 'Vintagizer', Colour scheme choice, Vibrato, and OSC key sync.

Controls are a bit confusing at first since there's no text to tell you what's what, but once you get the hang of it, this might be one of the best synths I've ever come across. Wonderful!!!

It's weirdly quiet and I have a hard time figuring out what any of the controls do...

Can't believe I passed over these plugins so many times. The design and operation is genius. Futuristic even.

I love your stuff, please make more! A compressor, bitcrusher, limiter, and saturation would be nice!
