I have some pretty nice friends... some of them even name synthesizers after me ;-) My friend, Scott Snyder, (aka Cos&FX) who aside from being a Sound Designer in the video game industry, also creates audio plugins on the side. He decided he wanted to start making them available to the masses so I said I'd help out and offer a place to post them and help create the presets. "Heather" is his first offering. It's a VST synth that applies additive and subtractive synthesis elements to create its sounds. The two filters are very resonant and with some tweaking can be really dramatic and wacky if applied to one of the 2 LFOs. This is a good synth for cutting basses, large screechy sweeping pads, leads and scifi sound effects. For just two oscillators it can be *really* F A T.
I've thoroughly hammered on this VST using Cubase 4 and Ableton Live 8.1 and it is solid... no wierdness. Give it a shot... its free what do you have to lose?
