Pads and FX synth. Based on the MX 2008

A synth for fast and easy creation of moving textures, lush pads, chords and electronic effect sounds.

Most GTG synths are great fun and great sounding. A No-brainer download. The only issue is that they all have partial MIDI maps already defined. Some come with a txt file showing the setup and others (like this one) don't which can cause some problem when assigning controls on a Controller within a DAW. Duplicate CC assignments doesn't work.

My favorite so far. First, the sound: it can be warm, it can be edgy without a glitch nor aliasing. The second oscillator is a sawtooth with sync and it does not alias at all. Second, the modulation capabilities: you've got 3 LFOs with multiple destination AND a modulation envelope that is able to modulate the LFO rate... THIS is great for some sound effects. Third, the GUI. It is colourful and easy to use, that's what a gui is supposed to be.

This is one of my top 3 favourite VSTinstruments. It has a real analogue feel. If you like playing sounds that are alive, then this one is for you. It deserves a 5 +

Somehow in a world of VST's, this one got by me. Wow. I am glad I discovered it. This is a classic for sure. The modulation routings are crazy. Thanks GTG.

I use this on my touchscreen monitor during live performance. Very nice indeed (like al GTG synths).

Definitely one of my favorite free synths. Tweak it much, as there are a whole lot of sounds waiting to be discovered. Heck, I like all the the GTG synths!

Hey! Where's this thing been hiding! Ten years I've been downloading these crazy things - this is something else. Okay not fully featured, hardly a daw unto itself, but versatility plus. 5/5 - it does everything traditional spacey rhythmic futuristic and if you've got a daw (you know them?), well use multiple instances with ease and onboard effects. In fact I'm recording my latest double album accidentally using only this plug as the generator, and the brass, strings, choirs, pads, sweeps, ratchets, noises, drums: you would swear all come from different sources. I'M HOOKED!
