Synthpop Vst Free

  1. Synthpop Vst Free Trial

Free Vst for 80s synthpop sounds 80s synthpop has come back into style and I really like some of the sounds. Does anybody know of a free vst with presets that sound close to the synths in these following songs? Most of these free versions give you the ability to create rich and warm sounds that feel unique and original. All you need is a little bit of creativity and lots of experimentation to know how your Synth Instrument works. Below is a list of some of the top 30 best FREE Synth Instrument VST plugins you can add to your music production gear.

“Polycom” is a large library of sounds Polymoog 203a and Polymoog 280a.

For Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher (requires the full version of Kontakt, but not for the free Kontakt Player). Synthesis Polymoog for me is a special synthesis. My full obsession with synthesizers began at a young age around 1979 because of Gary Numan and his album: the principle of pleasure. I must have exhausted this record because I listened to it a lot – it struck me how futuristic it sounded. I remember reading POLYMOOG words and thinking that this word sounds so mysterious and cool, and although I knew that this must be one of those synthesizer machines that I constantly heard about, I had no idea what it was (obviously this was before the internet). So, it was Gary Numan, Chris Payne and Polymog who changed my life path and made me dream of buying synthesizers one day.

I am very glad that I created the Polymoogs library. The Polymoog 203a is a classic synthesizer used in all of Gary’s music, and I named the Polymoog 280a ZOM ZOM library after Gary Numan, and then created the Polymoog 203a library called Polycom after the internal chip in voice cards (don’t worry, you get both Zom Zom and Polycom). Polymoog was also used by people such as Gary Wright, Wendy Carlos, Chick Koria, Jimmy Destry from Blondi, Jeff Downs from Bagles and Asia, Frieze, Ralph Hutter from Kraftwerk, John Fox (Metamatic album) and many others.

As promised, this follow-up to the 10 Best Free VST Plugins list (that is, just effects and processors) is all about synths.

Some of these synths are early projects from designers who have gone on to work for larger companies making some of the most high-profile VST instruments; others are passion projects from solo sonic adventurers who simply want to share their skills with the music-making community. And some are simply streamlined versions of commercial synths.

7. u-he Zebralette

Again, this synth is a slimmed-down version of a commercial soft synth – in this case, the u-he Zebra2. But the Zebralette is very popular in it’s own right, as it’s capable of making some pretty great sounds of it’s own.

Recreating the legendary sound of the Commodore 64 SID sound chip, this synth is an absolute must for chiptune makers and anyone who’s into retro / 8-bit game style sounds and FX.

It’s available for Windows VST only I’m afraid. More info and download at tonebytes.com.

9. Kairatune

A bass and lead synth with an inspiring interface, designed specifically with EDM in mind.
