Are you tired of overwhelmingly large synthesizers with thousands of presets? Well, the OS-251 from Onsen Audio might be the synth for you. And the best part is, it’s completely FREE!
The OS-251 is a ‘JUNO’ syle digital subtractive synthesizer. It uses digital algorithms for warm, lo-fi sounds instead of the usual analogue simulation with the selection of parameters heavily influenced by the JUNO-106. The oscillator also features aliasing noise (specific to digital signal processing) famous on classic samplers like E-mu SP-12 which adds a lo-fi feeling to the sound. Additional features include – up to 10 voices of polyphony, Sin, Square, and Saw oscillators with shape parameters, LFO with amplitude, LPF, Shape control, Built-in chorus, and much more!
OS-251 is a pure digital lo-fi synthesizer plugin for Mac, Windows and Linux. Available in VST3 and AU plugin formats for free.
Every parameter available is visible at once and because the number of the parameters is limited, you can create the desired sounds yourself quickly. This makes it a great synth for anyone who is looking to get started or experiment with synthesis. Give it a whirl today!
OS-251 is available for free from Onsen Audio indefinitely.
