Cynthia - EMS SynthiA emulation
With Cynthia you can do all that crazy stuff you cant do with a modern synth.

Cynthia is monophonic VSTi, very Old School, but will still be able to keep in tune throughout the song, patches can be stored and it is of course fully MIDI controllable.

Control voltage and sound sources:
  • 3 monophonic oscillators with controls for shape and level of the waveforms, sync and phase-shift
  • Noise generator
  • Two audio inputs so you can modify the sound of a guitar or your voice
  • 8 step control voltage sequencer
  • Attack-hold-decay(-repeat) envelope generator producing a control voltage with adjustable level and biasĀ 
  • A self-oscillating filter (can be used as a sine OSC as well)
  • 3 VCA's controlled by the envelope generator or control voltages assigned to the output level of each channel
  • Ring modulator
  • Spring reverb with short and long spring
  • Delay (delay time from 0 to 10 seconds)

  • Tuner for tuning OSC's by ear
  • Joystick for extra control
  • 16 x 20 routing matrix with inputs for host MIDI pitch and velocity and inversion of individual connections
  • MIDI cc's can be assigned to any knob
  • Adjustable portamento time
  • Trigger button for triggering the envelope generator

  • 2 pairs of stereo outputs with extra filters, pan and volume control, direct out and speaker (simulating the sound of a pair of canny speakers)

Wish I could figure out how to make the joystick work with my gaming joystick in midi cc in Reaper somehow...

I think this is one of THE BEST free VSTs around!!! I just wish ninecows does version two ! - especially if the sequencer could be worked to the host tempo! that would really make life a lot easier to bare....

This is based off the synth that "On The Run" by Pink Floyd was played on! Sounds Exact! Thanks!

After spending an obscene amount of time getting a sound out of this thing (refusing to look at presets), I finally got it going with the hi hat using velocity to control the white noise. Probably NOT how it was done, but it worked! Now for another long evening figuring out the rest of the crazy sfx... ugh
