Subtractor VSTi


YEK

Recommended Posts

so i used to be a reason user, still am kinda, but i'm wandering , trying to find greener pastures. there's some things about reason that i don't like.

i'm looking for a vst instrument that is similar to the subtractor, subtractive synthesis,. i want to be able to make just as much varied sounds on it as the subtractor. hopefully one that has an intuitive interface

i don't want some cpu hungry , more complicated than it needs to be- synth

 

so yeah, what do you guys reckon i should look into. hopefully something i can get my hands on easily ie not pay

 

i want to make a smooth transition from reason into, at this moment , probably fruity

 

THANKYOU :phone: :phone: :phone:

oh cool, looks a bit cheesy looking but i guess i can get over that

 

also got a synth called iblit which was pretty much what i was looking for and it got good reviews

it´s hardware actually but you cant get a vst for it.

if you want some simple controls and straight-ahead substractive synthesis - my favourite one is the Korg Polysix VST. very nice sound.

also you can check RGC Audio Pentagon, pretty powerful vst, it cost some bucks but you can get the RGC Audio Triangle, monophonic but free to get an idea.

v-station is not hardware.

 

never has been.

 

all the other novation 'stations' were but not v. v for virtual, eh?

 

software only.

that's hardware right?>

 

nope.

 

As ~ism said..

 

There is a hardware version of it called the K-Station. The V-Station is a VST instument. And no, you don't need a K-Station to run it.

There is a software version of the Basstation too.

 

software only.

Well, it's the software version of the K-Station.

Yekker, I HIGHLY recommend the Novation V-Station.

 

as a reason user, i was also looking for a comparable synth for my non-reason projects. i found the V-Station and now it's my work-horse synth. i use it in pretty much every track.

 

it's capable of deep basses, great leads, and slippery pads, just like the subtractor. and the sound quality is better, imo.

 

get it.

I've got a K-station... I guess as it's VA, it's practically the same as the V-station...

 

I love it. Some great sounds lurking within that beast

Guess Ill post some of my favorite free synths.

 

Minimougue Lexus

 

PolyIblit

 

Xhip Synth

 

Purple (scroll down)

 

Maestro (Kind of dirty, not for everyone)

 

Augur

 

ASynth

 

I guess it is just that I have learned to focus more on these synths than any others, but they are for the most part great. I may have left a couple out.

I really like Sutractor... I wish there were more softsynths like that, it can do futuristic sounding leads and pads like nothing else - and the sound quality's not too clean or too dense either (my usual problems)...

 

Only way I've found to use it is to load Reason up and trigger it from another sequencer (like Renoise) with MIDI Yoke...

the minimogue is nothing like a subtractor, but it is a pretty awesome little emulation, especially for freeware. it's also proof that synth edit isn't completely useless.

 

Oh, Im sure your right! I've never used the subtractor, I just thought I'd post some synths that have stuck with me through exploring vstis. There are tons of others but I really like these especially. And also forgot about this little gem: Voyager
