Free Virtual Analog Synth

Roazhon DSP releases BrainStormer VSTi for Windows      21/02/14

Roazhon DSP has released BrainStormer, a freeware virtual analog synthesizer.

Olivier from Roazhon DSP, told us "As a programmer and producer, I always wanted to combine my two passions and create a synthesizer to understand the inner workings and challenges of such a beast. I started the BrainStormer on my free time in 2012, focusing on sound quality and synthesis capabilities. After hours and hours of design, personal researches, coding, testing, and many other things I can't list, here is finally the 0.85 beta version.

There are so many things I wish I could add to the synth, like a FX section, more waveforms, 2 filters with serial / parallel options, intermediate distortion features, optimizing some parts of the code. Unfortunately I did not have the time to do this for now, but I keep all of this in mind for future versions. Have fun!
