LuSH-101 (D16 Group) 5. Imperfect (WA Production) In audio, the older the better, right? While the virtual stores are decked with plugins that give you a pristine, digital sound, many producers are more interested in throwing it back to a time when analogue waveforms ruled the roost with vintage synth plugins. With a vintage synth VST, you get the sounds of yesteryear without having to shell out for maintenance, upkeep, or space in your studio. But which are the best vintage synth plugins for your music and your wallet? And how can you find good free vintage synth plugins? We’ll tell you now… Imperfect (WA Production) Based on classic analogue synth sounds, but taking no direct inspiration from any one synth, Imperfect has five oscillators to stock up, and three special modulation sliders named Wacky, Cracky and Shaky, which add that element of analogue-style imperfection into the tones of the oscillators, getting you that time-honoured characterful sound of… Imperfection. The oscillators themselves contain two analogue-style waveshape selectors, a sample later, a sub, and a noise oscillator. Those modulation sliders introduce chorus, delay and phase (Wacky), saturation and distortion (that’s Cracky), and detuning and vibrato (that’d be Shaky). As for the rest of Imperfect, the usual synthesizer features are here, including X/Y modulation, an arpeggiator, ADSR envelopes and more. All that will cost you just $85. LuSH-101 (D16 Group) Lush-101 is a recreation of the famous SH-101 synthesizer, that pushes the concept way beyond its original design. LuSH-101 is multitimbral, meaning that it can play up to eight different layers – effectively eight whole synth setups – which can be layered, or split between MIDI channels or keys. Also unlike the original 101, Lush-101 is polyphonic, with a SuperSaw mode for the saw wave and a Pulse Width control for the square wave. D16’s 101 also soups up the arpeggiator, and it adds a choice of eight effects – one for each synthesis layer you’ve set up. Although, if you do want to get the sound of the original Roland SH-101, it’s very capable of that particular sonic throwback. You can grab it from Plugin Boutique for £125. Ultra Analog VA-3 (AAS) Ultra Analog was designed to mimick the most analoguey of analogue tones, although not with any particular synth in mind – this plugin is a whole workstation for imperfect, analogue-style patches. You get two synth oscillators, with a big choice of waveforms, plenty of synthesis controls, and effects for each of those oscillators, as well as global effects too. You get over 1000 presets with Ultra Analog VA-3. After choosing your oscillator mode and the loaded sound, the synth Editor lets you grasp tuning controls, oscillator mix, filter and filter envelope, LFO, and amp envelope. Effects – one for each oscillator and one global – give you access to EQ, compression, chorus, delay, reverb, phaser, flanger, filters, guitar amp and tremolo. Mini V (Arturia) How about a nice little Mini V to get your teeth into? This plugin sees Arturia modelling the classic, the king of analogue synths, the Minimoog. As if we have to tell you, the original was a three-oscillator synth with a choice of waveshapes and tuning, filter and amp envelopes, and that legendary ladder filter that Moog synths are known for. Arturia have also added some extra features of their own for their V version: there’s an arpeggiator, a vocal filter, 32 voices, unison mode, chorus and delay, and soft clipping. There are 1000 presets to get your hands on as well, taking the original fusty, dusty Minimoog and suping it up for the virtual studio generation. All that for €150, and also available as part of Arturia’s V Collection. Repro (u-he) Repro is a package that emulates not just one classic synth but two: The Sequential Pro One and Prophet-5. The monophonic Pro One comes from the age of the Roland SH-101 and the Moog Prodigy, with RePro-1 giving you a powerful little synth with two oscillators, filter, filter and amp envelopes, and modulation assignment. The Prophet-5 built on this and created a full-on polyphonic synth, modelled here in RePro-5 with extra polyphony (up to eight notes) and unison capability too. You’ll also find a sequencer on the monophonic RePro-1, a polyphonic distortion in RePro-5, and five effects on each synth, including delay and chorus, EQ and resonator, reverb, and a dynamics processor. #PluginBoutique #Top5Synths #BestPlugins
