Xakt - Spectral synth
This spectral synth is gifted at dark textures and sounds with plenty of movement.

Take the time to become accustomed to its unusual interface and you will have a real beast on your hands.

Great, versatile synth, but there does not seem to be much information available on how exactly to control its sound (no manual). Sixteen sets of red and green 'Wave Controller' sliders allow to stack sine waves of defined frequencies, as typical for an additive synth. The frequency range is determined by the OCTAVE slider above the oscilloscope. Each set of one red and one green slider controls a specific harmonic frequency. Set 1 is for the fundamental. Sets 2, 4, 9(!) and 16 are +1, +2, +3 and +4 octaves, other frequencies in between. Set 8 is somewhat strange as it is two semitones higher than set 9 (not clear whether this was intended). Red and green sliders are affected differently by the settings in the WAV ENV section. The AMOUNT knob is a master for the contribution of red and green sliders to the sound: The higher its value is, the more red shapes the sound (replacing green), the lower its value, the more green dominates, allowing for intricate morphs. The sliders of the WAV ENV ADSR section set the contribution envelope of red: A higher setting of the S-slider yields more weight of red. Settings of A, D and R-sliders shape the time course of red. The relative contributions of red and green can also be modulated by the LFO, and the LFO WAV slider sets the respective LFO amplitude for this. In the FILTER section, C1 appears to be the cutoff of a lowpass filter on the source sound, while C2/SHIFT1 and C3/SHIFT2 mostly control cutoff and amplitude of filter resonances (when RES slider is up). The LFO FLT slider controls the entire FILTER section. The rest of the synth are standard controls for AMP envelope, chorus, phaser, delay, reverb and vibrato.

Rare pops and clicks could be an issue in some cases, but I've never seen anything like it, free or paid, so it's a must have anyway.
