The blooo is a VST polyphonic based on the classic subtractive synthesis architecture.

It is written in native C++ code for high performance even on "lighter" systems.

  • Up to 32 voices polyphony including portamento.
  • 2 band-limited oscillators including Ring modulation and hard sync.
  • 4 oscillator waveforms (sawtooth, pulse, sawpulse, sine) with shape control.
  • Additional white noise generator.
  • 2 multi-mode four-pole filters (lowpass, highpass, bandpass, allpass, phaser) with resonance and panorama control.
  • 3 envelopes (ADSR) with exponential slopes.
  • 3 low frequency oscillators (LFOs) with tempo synchronization.
Please support freeware development

Truly excellent. Sounds awesome but has surprisingly low CPU usage for the complexity of the sounds. Probably a bit to convoluted for making patches from scratch but I twiddled knobs at random for a bit and still got some very useable sounds.

Cubase crashed under Windows 10 whilst trying to edit a patch. While is was working, it seemed to be OK but nothing special and very similar to other FB synths.

Incredible. Clearly laid out, great sounds from the get go. Straight away I was able to make super sounds from the presets. Have many keyboard vstsi's, this is one of the best.

Easily my favourite synth. It's simplicity is the key, but it still makes a massive range of sounds for any kind of project, and is light on CPU too, which is great on a travel pc set up like mine

If I had to choose just one synth it's this one. Unbelievable range of sounds you can make. At first I wasnt sure Id like this updated GUI because I was so used to the older slider version. But I like it even more. Extremely easy to use.

One of the best freeware VA synths. More versatile than it seems at first sight.

The shape control really makes this synth shine in it's versatility, the portamento makes everything funky as hell and saw waves have their own nice sharp brassy sound. Top of the freeware domain. Excellent warpy filters too when the resonance is up and the cutoff down.

All these years later this is still the top in my book! This can do so much and with great ease. Some say it's difficult to figure out but once you got it the sky is the limit! And on top of that it's very cpu efficient. If I were stranded on an island and could only use one vst... this would be it!

This synth is one of the most versatile vsts out there. If I hear a sound in my head, this can probably make it! Yes... it has a noise generator!

This one sounds excellent. The GUI is a bit strange, but the sound makes it worth the effort.
