Podolski - Arpeggiator / step sequencer synth
Podolski is a straightforward virtual analogue synthesizer featuring a flexible arpeggiator / step sequencer plus delay and chorus effects.

Originally a FilterscapeVA spin-off made for a major German music-tech magazine and now freeware, Podolski can sound exceptionally smooth for a synthesizer of its vintage – or exceptionally gritty !
  • Oscillator – the Warp and Invert functions can be used to create many different waveforms, including (of course) the classic sawtooth, triangle and pulse / PWM
  • Envelope – only one envelope here, but Gate can be used for the amplifier instead
  • 2 LFOs – one global (i.e. for all voices) and one per voice
  • Filter – classic Lowpass, Bandpass or Highpass with extra parameters Drive, Click (impulse at Note On) and AutoFM (bipolar frequency modulation from the oscillator)
  • Arpeggiator – combined arpeggiator, step sequencer and modulator, like in Zebra2
  • 2 effects – stereo delay and chorus / flanger with feedback
  • Resizable GUI – also 3 alternative skins

If this doesn't inspire you to create something amazing and put it out into the world - Nothing ever will. The presets are some of the best, it's layout is second-to-none easy to understand and interact with and it is useful for any genre from '70's rock synths to '20's club music. Just download it and follow the simple installation, pointing to wherever you hide your VSTi's; find a host and off you go. Thanks VST4FREE for hosting this!

I couldn't find the VST after installing in ableton live, but after a deep scan - you hold the ALT key and press 'rescan' - it worked. https://u-he.com/support/faq.html#troubleshooting:not-appearing. Thanks u-he!

Works great on MacOSX 10.12 ElCapitan version AudioUnit. I tried simpliest hosted by GarageBand. Paralelly with venerably Cristal (also AU) stands to compare.

this is a great, the best arpegiator EVER. It also has grand sound and some great presets. Absolutely one of the greatest VST's I have seen. Then to offer it free is purely orgasmic!!! GREAT WORK!!!
