Anybody tried this? Loads of different synths Juno-60, Oberheim, Moog etc.
It's around $59 with the code "Group".

A rompler, and an average one at that. It has some big sounds in it but not much tweakability. Better things to spend your money on imo.

The free version has just 3 or 4 patches from each instrument. A while back they also gave away all of the Bully presets from the normal version. I'm not aware of the normal version ever being free.

Both UVI and IK have been giving away some of their full versions. You can find "some" really goods sounds there, but with some I mean just a few. Most I'll pass on. Tweakability is minimal, near zero. The few patches I like are great to layer up with in a CPU friendly way. But the 99-149 price even at 50% off is way overpriced for its usefulness. And more Gb isn't a selling point. If they were like $19 I might pick up one, just because some nostalgia of mine.

A lot of the old synths sounded pretty mediocre and needed a great deal of FX and layering, it is easy to forget that, unless you still own a Roland U-20, :lol:

The sampled digital versions don't have layer velocity changes and some were using to few samples (one per oct) and the transition points were awful, maybe OK in a 3 layer patch, but not on its own, unless you want to recreate a 90's synth sampled by a 90's sampler, then those patches were spot on in all its glory crappyness. :shock:

Heck, considering what you get in a free U-he Zebralette with wavetable editing, super filters, unison etc, I mean the price of free for something like a 1/2" Serum, who's paying $149 for some sampled stuff anyways…?

The full Syntronik with all its instruments was never given away for free. Every once in a while though, a few of its modules/instruments have been offered for free. I personally love Syntronik and I use it a lot. The simplicity is what I particularly like about it, and if i want to be a tweaker I'll just use a deeper synth. Syntronik sounds better with all the effects disabled though and luckily you can lock the effects off.

The UVI digital synsations is great. one of the most used freebies i use.

IKM gave away for free the Bully and the OBx from Syntronik collection. The IKM is good if you need/want that sound but don't really care for getting any hands on what the original synth was like to use and tweak.

I bought the UVI Minimoog plugin for $5 at Guitar Center a while back... was a huge CPU hog but did sound pretty good. I'd just use Blamsoft's Viking (the free VST version) if I want a Mini sound though...
