HG Fortune has announced the release of Alphatron, a new synth inspired by the idea of creating a synthesizer for bass and high sequences which can serve as a companion to Avatar ST's pads, atmos and soundscapes.

Alphatron is not just a simple VA synthesizer, instead, in using a 3rd oscillator with digital waves of single cycle type, it offers more variation. Thus it can do analog-style sounds reminiscent of the old Moog and Prophet days but also merge this with the digital realm.



Main features (based on Pro version)

  • 1 VA Oscillator with up to 6 poly waves for Saw, Ramp, Sine, Tri, and Pulse.
  • 1 VA Oscillator with single waves as above plus white and pink noise, Sync slave.
  • 1 Sample Oscillator with fairly typical digital waves (single cycle type) with different harmonic content, Sync master.
  • 1 Amplitude Modulation with dedicated output.
  • 1 24 dB resonant Low Pass filter with dedicated ADSR EG, 4 mixable mod sources.
  • 1 VCA EG. Note: Both EG have 3 modes: exponential, reverse exponential, and linear; and optional control for Attack and Decay by velocity.
  • 1 Booster or Exciter selectable.
  • 1 Mystify with three selectable types (Brite, Soft, Dark).
  • 1 BPM synced Delay with adjustable Offset controlled manually or by modsource, Pan.
  • 1 Bass Boost.
  • 1 Pan for undelayed signal.
  • 1 small Reverb for adding some nice flavour.
  • 1 Saturator.
  • 1 main Volume.
  • 3 x LFO, 1 x Duo LFO (with two waves and phase control for 2nd wave), 1 x S&H.
  • 1 Pitch LFO with option to speed up or down the LFO speed.
  • 16 Step Sequencer (with Shuffle) for notes and velocity plus mute buttons for each step. Includes 8 pattern slots per patch and 4 global pattern slots for instant changes.
  • 3 Wheels.
  • Aftertouch as selectable modsource.
  • 8 Lazy buttons.
  • 8 GUI variants selectable.
  • 128 patches.


Both free and commercial versions are available. The major differences of Basic Free (less features)

  • Only 64 patches.
  • No Lazy buttons.
  • Only 4 Seq Pattern per patch & 2 global Seq Pattern.
  • 2 voices.
  • No selectable GUI (instead there is a choice of four different dll to download).
  • No patch select on GUI, but a silly scroller reminder not to forget to support the developer.


Pricing & Availability

Alphatron is available for Windows as a VST instrument plug-in. The commercial version costs €29.
