The Alterex ViSYNTH is a freeware synthesizer that is very basic. The main screen of the vst is where you can do everything at and there are no extra menu’s to navigate through. There is no manual for this software, and I really didn’t need one or expect to get one since it was freeware and most freeware wont come with a manual. All of the setup process was extremely easy and it only took a minute or so. I normally wont just download a software VST that I have not heard of because most of them online now a days have some sort of a virus attached to them. Then you download it and your computer is full of Malware and other viruses and spy ware. Downloading the Alterex ViSYNTH was very virus and spy ware free.
There where no compatibility issues on my 64 bit Windows 7 Machine, nor on my dual processor desktop top. I am running it on a 2nd Generation quad core processor with 2.5GHz, and 6MB. It works great and has never went down or crashed on my on either of those two computers.
The bad part of ViSYNTH is that the presented sounds are not very good, they are very dry and there aren’t a lot of effects in the VST that can make it much better. Even if you connect to your mixer track and start adding some of the external effects you will still not have a great sound, this was expected since it was a freeware device and not paid for. You really cant expect to get great sounds and functionality of a VST if it is a freeware. But, you will still get a decent VST and there will be no loss because it is virus free, easy to use, and best of all it is free so there really is no risk, you can always delete it if you don’t like it. Hopefully they come out with another version that has some better sounds and effects.
