VSTBuzz is offering a deal on SynthMaster, a virtual synthesizer by KV331 Audio. The instrument is priced at €29, which is a 65% discount from its original price of €83.
Scouring around the internet, I’ve often come across the opinion that SynthMaster is the only synth you need.
And that opinion is hard to argue, especially when you consider the specs.
SynthMaster features multiple synthesis engines, including Virtual Analog, Additive, Wavetable, Phase Modulation, Frequency Modulation, Physical Modeling, SFZ Sample Playback, and more. It’s almost what I’d call too much – especially when you factor in the 1,400 presets it comes with.
I’m someone who tends to initialize a patch as soon as I get my hands on a synth. But, statistically speaking, with 1,400 included presets, whatever I could come up with is probably already on there.
SynthMaster also has a pretty intense semi-modular architecture, an equally deep arpeggiator, and of course, a ton of different effects. This includes all the usual suspects like Delay, Reverb, and Chorus, but it also has stuff like LoFi and a Vocoder – not something you get with most synths.
“With its multi-algorithm oscillators, analog modeled zero-delay feedback filters, flexible effects routing with 11 types of high-quality effects and 48 separate modulation sources and hundreds of modulation targets; “SynthMaster 2.9” sounds fantastic and stays out of your way while you work!”
To round things off, there’s a bunch of different filter types AND you can also upload your own waveforms.
There’s also a TON of different skins for this – a lot of which look pretty snazzy.
SynthMaster 2.9 is less of a workhorse as much as it is a Battle Mammoth™.
“The architecture in SynthMaster 2.9 consists of 2 layers followed by 2 global FX send busses. The effect routing is totally flexible. The effects can be inserted by right-clicking on the insert and choosing the effect from the dropdown menu. An insert effect can be activated/bypassed by left-clicking on it.”
I’d say that’s a pretty fair amount of sound for the asking price of €29.
If that’s not enough, let’s mention that SynthMaster 2.9 is championed by the likes of Armin van Buuren, Martin Garrix, Axwell, Zedd, and Martin Solveig.
