Minisynth Series

Minisynth Series

Acrobatics has released Minisynth Series free VST plug-in synthesizers. The Minisynth series collection consist of three of VST plugIn instruments: FRET, GRIT and PEAK. Minisynth Series features simplified controls and packed implementations to the highest grade, to push-up users creativity first and give a pleasant look to the eye, These virtual synth are coloured, smart and aggressive, and offers easy, creative sounds.

FRET is an accurate reproduction of phase modulation synthesizers of the eighties: reproduces pianos, basses, organs and bells patches with ease, and it can explore wild and spacey atmos using alternative programming.

GRIT is voted to pulses, PWM and organ-like sounds: uses a proprietary mix of phase distortion principles in order to produce its sounds. It is the dirty of the family, watch out for massive aliasing and punchness.

PEAK is the analogue baby of the lot. Classic acid and house tones are at hand. Here the LFO addresses pitch of a clean square or sawtooth waveform with typical Minisynth series advanced modulation extras.

Minisynth Series are available for free as VST intrument plug-ins for Windows at Acrobatics.
