About software plugins

A plugin is a software synthesizer which can be accessed within a DAW. Usually the plugin is loaded on a MIDI track.

Chip Vst Plugins

Instrument plugins interface with your DAW through one of a handful of standards. Steinberg's VST is a standard supported by many DAWs. AudioUnit (AU) is widely supported on macOS. RTAS is used by ProTools. LV2 is an open-source plugin format commonly supported on Linux. Put simply, you should check your DAW's user manual to see what kind of plugins you can run.

In some synths portamento/glide doesn't work properly when microtuned. Examples are Xfer Serum and LinPlug synths. There may be others, so it is recommended to test this function before making a purchase, if it is important for you.

Notes about this list

'Full-keyboard microtuning' means that the plugin is capable of any arbitrary pitch, note or frequency on any given MIDI note. This is possible via .tun format, MIDI Tuning Standard, and .scl/.kbm pairs (but not .scl support on its own).

All synths in the list are assumed to be 64-bit by default or offer an option of 32- or 64-bit. Synths that are 32-bit only are marked with '(32-bit)'
