One of the best Synth VST around there! Just wonder what preset has the most high quality instruments of the available presets collection archive. There are so many, what makes it hard guessing what are the best. Any suggestions of experienced Synth1 users. My composition style is: Pop Rock/ and Ballads!

For pop/rock/ballads this VST is probably not the best around although for sure it can provide excellent pads, bass & solo synths. But don't look for perfect (electric) pianos' and organs. Anyway, preset collections called Thanks MS. Ichiro are excellent, for many styles.

Classic. Regarding the much faster pc's that exist now since it's first release, a 3rd osc, a greater choice of wavetypes and extended arpeggiator would keep it up with recent releases. Great addition to the now also free Firebird.

After trying (and buying) for a year a lot of analog vintage synth VSTi emulations I was almost to give it up until a friend of mine introduced to Synth 1, now I am using VSTi for almost everything. Just love the flexibility and the sound of this synth and I can believe is free (sincerely I would pay for it!). The interface could be a little simple and rough but the sound is awesome. I hope Ichiro Toda keeps improving and updating this synth, it is really worth! Highly recommendable!

Old. Simple. Millions of presets available. Sounds really good. Reminds me of my Roland SH-32. Oatmeal will always be my favorite though.

Very CPU friendly and logically tweakable and automatable synth plugin. This plugin is great! A must-have. Used in lots of my older projects, now I'm using a paid registered Sylenth1.

You want to know what it sounds like? What it can do? Listen to this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwBpImrtkQg . All made with synth1 (except for piano and drums). No presets used only my own creations.

What can I say about my favourite and probably most famous FREE VST synth? I heard about this in 2002, and since then I used it in literally hundreds of arrangements/songs/sketches and must say: you can find a insane number of uses of this synth in the context of your music... What selled me at first was the absurdly low CPU usage and the impressive amount of great professional sounding presets. Don't let the horrible default bank let you down... Look for Nolwenn, Goldbank, Kayoti, Ouroboros bank3 to name a few great ones.(NOTE: Preset management may seem confusing at first, but once you get it, you can load up to 1280 sounds at once !!!) Synth1 is suited not only Electronica/Dance stuff, but can find a place in many other genres. Programming is not hard if you have some basic knowledge, and features are good and can deliver a vast range of different sounds. No docs unfortunately and GUI it's not the greatest, but how many free synths allow you to change GUI color and its size up to 200%? A MUST-HAVE SYNTH!

Awesome vst! fat & dirty sound, super-easy to use, amazing wide range of sound. I score 4/5 (should be 5/5 but there is some crap noise on the a.d.1 effect that I don't like. Otherwise it's just... so perfect!)
