Friday’s Freeware: Digits
The Retronyms is working on the iPad version of a phase distortion synth that has been unnoticed on your favorite website. Time to catch up!
Digits is a synthesizer plug-in inspired by Casio CZ models and developed by Extent of the Jam in 2012. It is available for free as a VST on Mac OS X and Linux 32 and 64-bit and Windows 32-bit.
Digits is a phase distortion synth pushed to its limits, that you can used for pads, basses, sweeps, leads, glitches, etc. The GUI, though not quite sexy and minimalist, features controls for the dual oscillator, resonance, velocity, envelopes, LFO, phase and a delay is included. The instrument ships with 51 presets.
You can listen to a demo and download the instrument at www.extentofthejam.com.
Before I wish you a great weekend, I’ll let you discover what The Retronyms will do with Digits on the iPad, the GUI is still to be refined. Note that the app will be Tabletop-ready:
